Friday Night at C&R Automotive. You hat to be there.

A few of us got together at Chris's before heading down to the North Shore Rod & Customs club rooms to farewell Wookie who is moving up North. We left moments after this shot - it's less than a mile to the club rooms but on the way my hat blew off - it happens quite often and I've resigned myself to losing hats regularly so kept on truckin'. Malcolm decided he was going to stop and grab my hat though - which very nearly resulted in a seven hot rod pile-up! No damage done and I'm quite glad to get the hat back thanks lads!

Exotic Inductions - look what's on the menu!

Augie Delgado sent me this pic of his latest creation today - injection set up scratch built for a boss 429. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. It's a thing of beauty!

The Satin Lives! Bowl Jam

If you skated or rode bikes at the legendary New Lynn bowl back in the day, you might remember some hilarious graffiti painted way high up on a wall in the park - someone took the time to get right up there but got the spelling wrong - Satin Lives. Andrew Moore and I were talking about this and how killer the bowl is now that it's been resurfaced and we decided to have a get together to celebrate this awesome spot - our buddy Tim White is in on it too. It's gonna be totally low key, bring your board or bike or just hang out and shoot the shit. We'll sort out the music and BBQ. Working on Hot Rod and Motorcycle parking too right next to the bowl too so stay tuned. 3pm Sat 22nd March, Bob Hill reserve.

Quicksilver Art

I was lucky enough to meet Larry Fator last year while at the LA Roadster show. He invited us back to his shop in San Dimas and we had a great time and hanging out and also got to meet Augie Delgado from Exotic Inductions. Augie had some great advice regarding the set up of my Hilborn mechanical injection - he really knows his shit. I spoke to both Larry and Augie over the last couple of days, two cool guys. Check out Larry's new website here

Under The Bridge Down Town

Saturday in Auckland City.


Our buddy Haydn Mitchell spotted the Fuck You chopper while he was down at Muscle Car Madness in Rangiora. You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns when they all came down and did tricks for you. You never understood that it ain't no good. You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat, you should never let other people get your kicks for you who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat.  Ain't it hard when you discover that he really wasn't where it's at? This bike is definitely where it's at. Now where's my Siamese cat?
