    Every time I visit a company I learn a little every time. It doesn’t matter what they produce it’s always a learning experience. In hot rodding circles their isn’t a more respected or recognizable company than that of the yellow eyes, Moon Equipment Co. Founded by the late Dean Moon who grew up in Norwalk […]

  • The Petersen Museum

    I want to start this post by firstly admitting something, I am not really a fan of museums, at least that was my mentality before the Petersen changed it all. Up until this point museums just seemed like a sterile and somewhat sad resting place for cars that had lost their functionality. I probably wouldn’t […]

  • A trip back in time

    A friend sent me some early drag photos the other day, just love the old chassis shop. If you told these guys that these days all your gussets, tubes and tabs are laser cut and all you have to do (if you had full CAD data) was to weld the whole lot together they would […]
