Aaah man I had a SUPER WANK today, its the same as having a regular wank but I get to wear a cape.

Actually I'm not even sure what this thing is meant to be- it's got the look of one of those kinda daft c-cab model T things. Whatever, I'm calling the bad taste cops.

I guess silly nicknames must be part of US drag racing folklore-these two certainly are. Don 'the snake' Prudhomme and Tom 'Mongoose' Mcewen ruled fuel funny car back in the 70s. Fortunately, less well-known were jerry 'fudge' packer and tom 'uphill' gardener. ok, I made the last two up.

Maybe some ideas should stay where they're hatched- in a drunken haze down the rub-a-dub...or sports bar or wherever our US cousins get their 'suds'.
On a different matter, I was in my usual sunday position, that is on the 6-6 shift, thankyou southwestern ambulance service....truckin' down the road when BAM my vision is filled with an oncoming rod, respendent in red oxide in the autumn sun, then I see it's bastardos bruvva Guy then I crane my neck to see him rollin' down the road and I gotta tell you, the stance on this fucka(the car not Guy!) is BADASS. Great job Guy, Pete and Ern, that thing just rules.

...livin' down here- was looking for pinstriping gear the other day and stumbled across this mob, they're only down the road. They do all the one-shot enamels, and thinners etc you need too, plus a good range of Mack brushes. Gonna be building up my stash one brush at a time, maybe santa might even bring me one.

Got a cool email today from alex over at http://electricsolos.com. He's a time-served tattoo artist who's developed a way of inking-up leather for use on bike seats etc. Pretty kool, huh? Plenty of others think so too, he's been in The Horse backstreet choppers and American Ironworks to name but two. Edit - I managed to sort the thumbnails out so you can see how good this guys work is.

Here's a little hotrod art for your delectation; as Lux Interior once crooned on 'You got good taste'(classic by the Cramps, surely you don't need me to tell ya)- 'I don't know about art, but I know what I like'. Words to live by.

Or maybe, how do you like yours- chopped 5-window or trad hiboy roadster? A couple of beauties nicked from rods n sods, both recent builds from these rainy shores. OK, so they're technically streetrods rather than hotrods, but either would sit well in any magazine, and go a long way to showing the quality of car being worked away on in backstreet garages up and down the land.

Here's another instalment in our regular homage to the zen masters of crazy orange MCs; you might have caught a peak over on benny's blog, here's a bit more. I can't get over what these guys can do to a stock sporty and make such a killa bike- even in this shot, there's more detail than you can shake a shitty stick at. Check the shaved sliders, narrowed and cleaned-up bars, shot-blasted cases, and well-tidy headstock. That tank's had a few hours spent on it too, and not just the squirt job neither. Respect as ever is due.

'Cos they called 'em 'anglias' of course. Apparently they were a mainstay of the US gasser world back in the day (and today, for that matter), so I thought I'd have a snoop round google images and see what came up. The 'rodded pop' is about as English as warm bad beer, so here's a look at what our colonial cousins have done with this great bodystyle. Pretty smart, I'm sure you'd agree.

And rat rods rule...Rumblers car club from New York are well represented in the press both sides of the pond, and the world over I'd reckon, and these scorchin' rides show you why. I'm lovin' that grey suede/primer on the tudor, rocks for sure. And good to see a move away from red steels, black rims look a whole lot better with skinny whites. (Too many colours in that last sentence?) Pickups ain't really my thing, but I'd have that one with the 34 grill shell in a heartbeat, killer stance.

Everytime I see this it blows me away.I love the way the suspension drops away but up ! That must have been mental. All sat round the table when someone goes "how about doing a complete barrel roll in a car over a river ? ",everyone else " Fuck yea".
Cracking stunt......and that not rhyming slang.

It is of course a motor city flathead, sorry the man will have to fill you in on the detail, currently in mid-stripdown/rebuild at home, this is just a mockup with a fenton intake manifold and tidy trio of holley 94 carbs. If I had this setup, I'd reckon I'd nailed it- but Filler wants more. Watch this space!
