  WOW... We got our FIRST reported “SOLD” in our Real Estate Classifieds this week !   In case you hadn’t heard yet...

     Readers in Canada looking for a Hot Rod from their past......  We got an email this week from Mike Lowden....  “. I'm wondering if you might be interested in helping a group of us find an old Hot Rod. This deuce roadster was built in London Ontario in 1956. It changed hands a number of times in Ontari and was sold to Larl Chase in Michigan and then to a guy named Roy Klann....  to learn more about the search  .... Look HERE.

     Benefit Show for Hot Rod Legend  Bo Huff......Bo Huff, was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma and is in treatment at Huntsman Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, one of the premier cancer institute's in the U.S. As you might guess, the treatment is very expensive and Bo's medical insurance is not sufficient to cover all of the cost. If you know Bo, you know he is generous to a fault and has given to those in need many times. Now he's in need.   There is a show to help raise funds this weekend,  but if you can’t make it to the show you can still help.  For information... Click Here

We are very pleased to have the great folks from Nu Relics Power Windows onboard with us.  Earl Cornelius has built Street Rods for over 40 years. During these years, he wanted power windows that were easy to install and worked properly - keeping the window level and straight as it went up and down. As a result, he developed a set of power windows for his 1940 Ford using the original manual regulator as the base for the power window. It was not long before his friends wanted these wonderful power windows for their cars too. Thus the establishment of Nu-Relics.   They now have over 300 models !

Engine turned panels were all the rage in the 50’s when hot rodders who were machinists were able to produce these cool panels at work or in their home shops.      This was a time consuming, tedious process and over time became lost to all but those with the patience and equipment to produce one off pieces.  Now that process has come into the 21st century and we can all have this look thanks to the folks at FPM Metals....
