I’m up in the Rockies visiting my brother Phil and he might be willing to part with (or part out) his ’53 Hudson Wasp. Says its all there including the Twin-H manifolds. Been sitting for a few decades in dry Colorado air at 9,000 feet. Let me know.
What an opening tonight at the San Diego Auto Museum for the Lowrider exhibit. A hometown San Diego creation and culture for 50 years. Absoutely great job by museum staff to bring together historic and contemporary classics. Well, back to the street tacos!

Sometime after the Aztec game finishes on Saturday and before the Charger game on Sunday, do check out the Coronado Speed Festival. It’s an extremely unique event that’s actually a moving — fast moving — museum. One of the great things about the car hobby is that unlike almost anything else, cars move. And for […]
There it is, holding a special place near the middle of the San Diego Auto Museum, Frank Sinatra’s 1967 Austin London taxi. The museum even has a copy of the car’s registration with Ol’ Blue Eyes’ name on it. The story goes that Frank used to dress up as a London cabdriver and pick up […]
