The Great California Street Rod Civil War

At the 1973 Street Rod Nationals (or so the story goes), rod builders Andy Brizio and Lil’ John Buttera got into a, shall we say, friendly discussion about which end of the Golden State produced the best street rods. Southern Californian Buttera ribbed Brizio, who was from South San Francisco, about how the Bay Area cars were “average” mechanically but were topped by outstanding paint jobs to make them seem more special. Brizio, in turn, said L.A. turned out trick show cars that couldn’t be driven very far. One thing led to another and (so the story goes) the discussion devolved into a “my new car will be better than your new car” challenge.

A major number of polls and surveys have agreed the Ford Model T was clearly the world's most influential car of the 20th Century.  Henry Ford has often been credited as the pioneer but actually the real pioneers were in Europe and the “automobile” had existed for decades. It was true, though, that their public adoption had been limited, and they were mostly scarce and expensive. What Henry really did is put…

“The Voice” & His Vehicles

“The Voice” & His Vehicles

Frank Sinatra was called “The Voice” from early in his career.   He was heard on his first recording with the Harry James Band singing “All Or Nothing At All” which sold about 8,000 copies that year, later to sell millions as he became better known. As he became famous with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, we have few hints on his growing interest in classy cars. He and his wife Nancy…

Hi Mike! Did you ever make The Board at the GSRA? Speaking of that, I didn't get an invite to rejoin this year so I didn't. Maybe next year. Love your SEW website but had no idea it I hadn't been out here since 2010. Time flies when you're having fun and I'm [still] having a blast. I'm back again and this time less one car in my stable - I gave my '52 Belair 2dr Hardtop to a buddy just before his 53rd Birthday. He could talk the talk but couldn't drive the ride because he didn't have one, so now he does and all is good. He's thrilled and I'm happy he's thrilled. The '50 Merc has undergone several grand worth of changes, including 4-wheel power disc brakes among a plethora of other mechanical and safety stuff but isn't done yet, and the '51 3100 is about to get its own set of front power disc brakes and some attitude to its stock 215 motor - aside from that it will remain as it is. I haven't been out at all this cruising season but will be in 2015, planning on taking a Wild-Wild West ride in the '50 Merc to Colorado and maybe a bit farther west and I'm hoping I'll be able to at least get it out on the road once this year before the season is done but the jury is still out on that because it has been at a professional restoration & customizing shop since May 27th. I'm looking forward to see you and the rest of this crowd all tanning our left elbows sometime soon!

Mike, I love your website, very interactive, better than most. I know that you have an idea to start incorporating more motorcycles in SE Wheels. One of the things I notice that is lacking on the web-site is motorcycle stuff. Motorcycle custom shops are big business now a days since Orange County and they rely on advertising. Any motorcycle ads will bring bikers to your events. Bikers like car owners spend money on their toys but to us we take it up a notch, clothes, sun glasses. Mike some of the helmets run $600.00., not to mention the jewelry and the racing leathers ... Just a thought, good luck.

Thanks for the invite, looking forward to a wonderful motorcycle filled 2014.

The foster and adoptive parents of Hall County extend an invitation to you to attend our 4th annual car, truck and bike show on May 3rd, 2014! The show location is the Hayes Dodge dealership, 3115 Frontage Rd in Gainesville GA from 11:00 to 3:00 with trophies awarded at 2:30. All the money we collect goes to benefit the children in foster care in our county. We provide care bags when a foster child comes into foster care with all the necessities like a tooth brush and tooth paste and things like a new toy, a blanket... We also provide Christmas gifts for every child in care and we are looking to start up providing a birthday gift for their special day. We need your help to be able to take care of the 200 or so Hall County foster children. Registration is $15 per vehicle. We also welcome venders. Check out our website and see pics of our other car shows at! We hope to see you there!!

Michael: Thanks for your friend invite. The web site looks like it will have helpful information for dates and times on local car events. I have three vehicles  being a 67 Camaro; 69 F-100 pickup; 71 Nova. I also have a 2012 Chevy Silverado that has been converted to be driven from my electric wheelchair. I am planning to attend the car Show at Togwatee Plaza on the 8th of March. If you are there I will look up,
