T110 Paint

Wow. It's really in paint. It's been 6 years but my T110 might actually be in the home stretch. I can't wait.

1947 Velocette

As I've mentioned numerous times before my Dad's first motorcycle was a 1947 Velocette, either a KSS or a MAC. My Dad is in town this week and tagged along with Rob and I to the Greaseball. Our friend Jeff Earle brought his father's 1947 Velocette. Dick Earle's Velocette was also his first motorcycle, he has owned it since he was 19. Needless to say we had to get my Dad on Dick's Velecette and Jeff was generous enough to accommodate. Even at 84 my Dad still looks pretty comfortable on it.

If you become aware of a reasonably priced 1947 Velocette 350 (complete or project) Rob and I would love to know about it.

So, I finally dropped my paint off with the painter. Maybe my semi-recent obsession with scallops will eventually come to an end.

My 13 year old son was just making the observation that immaculate Tri-5 Chevy street rods have become so common they are now almost the Camry of hot rods. That said when a ‘55 done right they can still be pretty damn irresistible.

Pocket Cobra

OK, maybe not powered by a CB400 engine. A Haybusa engine would do the trick...

From Seattle Speedometer. God I hope this is Photoshopped. I recently heard Adobe no longer wants people to use Photoshop as a verb. That’s all the incentive I need to do it as much as possible.

Perhaps the prettiest 1955 Thunderbird ever built. This early custom looks like the T-Bird Enzo Ferrari might have built.
