Hot Rod Jen Is HOT!!!!!!!

So....... there is a striper I really admire.... I have been following her work for a long time.
We have met briefly at some events..but at last years rained out Jalopy Showdown Drags,I had a bit of time to catch her and chat.
I have had this vintage open face drag helmet for some time and I asked her to stripe up what ever her heart desires.
She agreed to put her magic to the Brain Bucket and give it her Artistic flavor.
She just sent me these pics....... WOW!!!!!!
I am stoked!!!!!!
Jen.... you rock!!!!

Exhausting Beauty.

When to great minds put there collective heads together....Magic happens.
Candy Man has been thrashing on a 34 for a customer,the hotrod is a work of art,...but during the procedure....the exhaust was a stickler for the customer.... not quite sure of the route to proceed, it became one of the last things to do to finish the build.
No fault or blame...it's just part of the long road on a build.
Enter Gear Drive Headers.
Candy Man and Salt Flat Matt put there hands and minds to work.The results are Stunning!
The deadly tig welds and finish is outstanding.Need Headers?.... call Gear Drive.
I can report a perfect fit and finish... pretty darn hard to do when both parties are a 1000 miles apart.
Matt's skills are top notch.
check the pics.

The Holy Grail has been Found.

Tony Nancy was an incredible fella. His racing career,his talent as a racer, and as a fine craftsmen.
As many know, I am a huge fan of his work,history and Saga.I would have loved to meet him and just spend 30 minutes talking to him.
Sadly, he has passed..but not his legacy.A very good friend of mine has just acquired a Piece of TN history.
Tony's old jacket..... that predated back to the late 50's. Purchased originally from the Nancy estate and then sold to my Pal......
My buddy is one lucky Son of a Bitch.
What a treasure.... what a find.
