Mandarins and Mellons

Me and Brother Ashton used to know a guy who had two girlfriends, one had large gazoongas and the other had small otters noses. They were friends and this guy used to call the pair of them (four in total) Mandarins and Mellons. Anyway, I was talking to our buddy Mike Ujdar this morning, we featured his well known roadster a few issues back. Here are a few shots we didn't use in the mag but which need to be seen! Mike is shutting down his fruit business after 40 years working 7 days a week so he's looking forward to spending more time on Hot Rods from now on!

Children run from the man with the candy.

It happens each year and last night was the night. She was a corker of an evening driving along the waterfront too. Here's a few shots from the Toy Run. The OnePercent "best in show" award goes to the giant dog with the fringe. Bitchen/barken'.

Fat Boy, lost in the shadow of your ass!

This is footage from a show my band FreakPower played in 1992 - the dude from the audience just got up on stage and did his thing, never met him before. I really wish I still had that Rickenbacker bass! Thanks to Peter McLennan for editing the video all those years ago and digitising the footage. I imagine the 1" tape version is long gone now.

Think & Quick!

Speedway season is officially underway and it just so happened that we had a Scroungers visit to legendary driver John Stanley's house on Sunday. What a trip! The walls of John's garage are jammed with the evidence of a life dedicated to racing - not to mention his workshop and the cars! The Hank Henry injected chev sprintcar, the Frank Brewer V860 powered # 99 replica that John built and the restored Bob Tattersall Offy powered "Hollywood Spring & Axle" # 54 car all grace his garage. John took us step by step through the build and history of each car and sprinkled in a good few stories from his years of racing.
