engle brothers
Podcasts

The jolly Engle giants sit and talk cars, V8 go-karts, kandy-colored strollers and life-sized, anatomically-shaped bottles of maple syrup with the Gearheads here on episode seventeen. We started with good intentions, honestly we did. Alas, it’s an entertaining time with guys whose work has some serious range from Drag Week cars to Lowriders and everything in between. To top it all off, the recurring theme was inspiration, and it’s a beautiful thing in this episode.

A very special episode sixteen races at you with the first awkwardly-produced “Film Friday!” Play along by watching the immortal “Corvette Summer” with the Gearheads. Why? We honestly have no idea why you’d do something like on purpose. If anyone walks in on you, tell ’em you were watching Hentai. Or that you tripped and it fell into the DVD player.

Episode fourteen goes all over the place from Hemi-powered Healeys to concours-level Tucker automobiles with the prolific, super-talented and even nicer still Rob Ida. It’s a fun walk down mmory lane and heads straight through the present day and into the future, too. Also there may have been talk of a game show. It’s that kind of episode, naturally.

It’s the triumphant return of the Pirate and Turtle as the Gearheads spend some time taking art, cars and taking major life risks to chase a dream in the automotive industry with Chris Dunlop, aka “Pinstripe Chris.” Truly a man wise beyond his years, it’s an episode that any artist, fresh or established will find invaluable in terms of shared experience and advice.

Podcasts

On episode twelve, the Gearheads sit and talk Pro Street, starting trends, trail mix and medieval weapons with hot rod builder and street machine legend Scott Sullivan. Other podcasts may have simply toed the line, but we jumped right over that thing and headed straight for Weirdville. Or Dayton. Whatever. It’s a fly-on-the-wall benchrace sort of thing for you, happy listener. We’ll even shut the bug zapper off this time.

Chrysler Norseman
Technically Speaking

When I get exiled from the living room, I either go out to the garage and tinker on the hot rods or grab something to read. On one particular night last week, the garage was too cold to paint the parts I was working on. I went back into the house to my mini-library of all of my car books and picked out one on Concept Cars. I had read this particular book many times before, but there’s one car in that book that has always intrigued the heck out of me. It’s the 1956 Chrysler Norseman.

illuminati
Unsung Heroes of Motorsport

If you’re a NASCAR fan, you’re probably as nuts about the night race at Bristol as we are. There’s just something about a big time race under the lights that makes it so much better than daytime racing. It’s 162,000 fans and 43 cars inside a bullring. Perhaps it’s the sparks generated when the cars bottom out, or the flames that shoot out of the exhaust pipes when they enter the corners. Whatever it is, we can’t get enough of it. Alex and Brian sit and talk with the “illuminati” of Bristol Motor Speedway, and become enlightened themselves.

Bob
It's Good to be the King

I met Bob Bauder in 1984 in Hesperia California when he passed me going the opposite direction in his lowered 1947 Ford convertible. I did a quick u-turn, because I really wanted to check out the car. Little did I know, a simple u-turn would have such a profound effect on my life and a lot of my future friendships.

Dusk 'Til Drawn

Throwback Thursday and Brian suspends rational thought, and toys with the idea of creating a cool custom from an overlooked ride.The Nissan Cube isn’t exactly the first thing that pops into many peoples’ minds when asked “what late-model cars have some potential, custom-wise?” We can’t imagine that it enters most sane people’s minds for any reason, really. Yet, back in 2009, this was precisely what he was considering. You’re welcome.

raptor
Child Bearing Hibbs

You’re certainly familiar with Ford SVT’s Raptor. Introduced at the 2008 SEMA Show, shortly thereafter released as a 2010 model, the Raptor was a production version of a trophy truck – or at least as close as the average consumer would get. But what do you do when you scale something good DOWN?

Dusk 'Til Drawn

A long- (and probably for the best) forgotten Progressive Rock assemblage who drew inspiration from Astral projection accidents, purple nurples and pre-Columbian history, Helium Submarine’s story is one of a tragic rise and fall. Today, we’re going to explore the final days of the band as never before, drawing from the surviving pages of Ashton Mung’s personal journals, and discover how something so brilliant could tumble so awkwardly to number two.

V-1 Bomb
Technically Speaking

“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival” –Winston Churchill
After thoroughly enjoying the movies, “Dunkirk” and “Darkest Hour”, I became fascinated with exploring the mental state of the British people at the time.this got me thinking about the final stages of the war, when Hitler pulled out all the stops in his quest to start chipping away at England. Let’s look at the technical side of how the British defeated Hitler’s V-1.

camino royale
It's Good to be the King

Being a custom painter for the last 25+ years kind of helped when I was taking a basic, somewhat clean ’72 El Camino that belonged to my Dad and built him a pretty wild hot rod and lied to him about the WHOLE project. It was a lot of work over a period of 4 years but it’s been fun watching the world’s oldest 15 year old have fun!
