Tried Something New - 08/17/13 10:16 PM

Since I have DSL with good upload speed and thousands of photos of custom cars from various car shows I attend I thought I would try my hand at making some videos out of them..so
here is a different kind of Saturday night video feature....did notice that when I created them the time was longer than what they ended up being on line..compressed I guess....I made 5 videos but only uploaded 2 due to time constraints

Ah... Fender skirts, Baby Moons, chromed headers, nosed & decked. The stuff of my youth. smile

I'm guessing you're a fan of Counting Cars and Fast & Loud. I love those shows.

I watch Counting Cars, Fast & Loud, Pimp my Ride too, and marvel at how fast they work....I hang at a custom body shop here in town and every week some one comes in wanting their car customized...nosed, decked , shaved, lowered, install '59 Caddy tail lights, 54 Chevy grill, 54 Buick side trim, painted a special blend metal flake with pearl scallops...and want it all done by Friday...ain't happening...and when you tell'em they always say...well those guys on tv build customs in just several hours ..yeah right

Have not missed one episode of Counting cars yet.. really like that show.

On another note... I saw this on Craigslist and had to stop myself from dreaming.

I went so far as to ask if he still had it and he came back with a price of 3 grand. I didn't even mention price...lol.

nebber knowd you was a gearhead! grin

yes,
it's a common misconception by people
who watch THOSE "REALITY" SHOWS
that the bikes (and cars) are
entirely created "In House"

'cause the details kinda' gets lost in the sauce
that most of what is done in the shop was actually
outsourced piece by piece from various specialty shops
often scattered through out the state (or country)
then assembled and possibly painted (sometimes only
the final Clear-Coat) on the spot.

The Shop that commissions the work gets the CREDIT,
while the various shops get paid by the part, and
possible mention in the case of Tooled Leather and
Specialty ART("TRICK")Painting or Fine "Pin-Striping".

What people aren't privy to (even the car owner, who
isn't a welcome presence due to the pressure they
TRY to exert since they generally DO NOT Understand
that once the vehicle is parted-out, it's a waiting game
to get the parts back for approval & final assembly.)

So shops USUALLY adhere to a
"Don't-Call-Us, We'll-Call-You!" policy
rather than have people milling around "under-foot".

KEWL! cool

However one thing you gotta' take serious like...
DON'T LITTER

over that tempting fence lies a 40 foot drop
onto a one of N.J.'s 6 lane highway/speedways.

"LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION"!


These days what Rutt's Hutt has going for it
is a LARGE Double Parking Lot, access to the
hub between several major highways & roadways
and it's proximity to New York City less than
5 miles as the seagull flies.... not to mention
GIANT'S STADIUM - The Meadowlands Race Track
and a Huge Indoor Events Stadium...and Paramus
N.J. "the World's Shopping Center" 2 miles away

A friends 51 that I was acquainted with back in the 50s. Buick powered. The guy that did the pin stripping had a brush in one hand, a beer in the other hand and several very nervous watchers. wink
