Mitsubishi Galant rental

Japan's response to the Chrysler Sebring.

Cinnabon-- Tasty treat or sign of the apocalypse?

Believe it or not, I've never had a Cinnabon.  I don't like sweets and I hate airport food.  But these  rants by my favorite comics have me intrigued.  I'll be at an airport today and will give it a shot.

Jerry Wood's 1953 Glasspar G2, with a 331 hemi, and he's not just great at restoring cars, he's a great dad and fabricator. At the Dana Point Concours

 I usually post before and after photos differently, but this one is in context and the above photo shows clearly what he's accomplished from the below

 Amazing car, 331 hemi, great interior and dash

But before I checked out the car, I noticed the purse the woman was holding. See the first photo at the beginning of this gallery, and you'll notice it too.

 That is one cool purse!
 Jerry made it for his daughter, and why describe it? You can tell what it's made from
 except that you wouldn't know that he used part of his jacket for the inside, and a bit of leather from his tool belt for the snap strap
 the handle is removeable, and a longer one can be added, changing it from a clutch purse (get it, clutch?) to a shoulder purse
 How awesome, and he even was keeping it shined up for her during the show.
If you're reading this Aja, thanks for the pleasant chat, and sharing with me the cool dad made purse. I bet a lot of guys are going to try making one now.

for an article about the car, and the source of the before image

if you can laugh at red neck trailer trash vehicles, then I've found the blog that celebrates the hillbilly ridiculous automotive concepts

lots of funny stuff on

I found a cool new blog with terrific variety of cool stuff I love,

wow, what is more 70's... the kids bike, or the fender skirts on the 60's GM midsize

Far out... KISS on choppers! Beats the hell out of that stupid motorbike giveaway they did

Above: Ed Roth's! Awesome! I've never seen it before

Looks like a Roth trike

C'mon, htis is the greatest blog I've found in a while... what a great variety!

Not getting enough hot rod photos? Check out , nothing but hot rods, lots of em

these need to get posted... I have been waiting for the right time.

 I came across this in my neighborhood

 Dodge made a 600ES? Huh,  looks like a late 80's Aries K car
 RARE 1981 corvette, a Duntov Turbo edition. Corvettes were just not going to get turbos according to the GM managers

 Off.. a jag that got a nose job, and looks worse, from who has a lot of great content, but NEVER add a credit to their posts to tell you where they got the stuff they post. I don't like that
 I think the above Ford truck was from one of my favorite Brazilian websites, it's a South American Ford crew cab and maybe not even a pick up bed.
