Technically Speaking

Part Three of Project White Trash starts out with a visual assessment of the truck’s poor condition. Alex hates rust, so he scrubs the entire truck with CLR to remove it.

Episode two of Project White Trash picks up with the truck being loaded up and brought home, and serving an eviction notice to some squatters and stowaways. Naturally, the bees and Black Widow spiders that have called the truck home for years don’t give up without putting up a fight.

Child Bearing Hibbs

My early years were consumed with following my dad around the garage fetching wrenches and riding to car shows with him. I have pictures of many of his high school cars, almost all of which happened to be ’49 through ’51 Fords. A few coupes, several Fordors, a smattering of Tudors. Of course, I developed a love for the Shoebox Ford.

It's Good to be the King

Ever since I was a kid, I loved land speed racing. Guys like Gary Gabelich, Mickey Thompson, Craig Breedlove and Art Arfons seemed “otherworldly” in their quest to go faster than anyone. As I grew older, I decided there was some goals I needed to chase in this amazing form of “free-for-all” motorsports and this version definitely had my name written all over it. I decided to build a streamliner and go play with some crazy guys and girls and chase some crazy records.
