RIP J.D. Salinger

If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody.
J. D. SALINGER, The Catcher in the Rye

Sent ya another one, Alex...

...Cant wait to see what ya do with it!

Born too late...

Damn, man...I'd trade my iPhone AND my BFF to be able to go back to these days...More tasty goodness from my Uncle Joe

Somethin' from my Uncle, Rockin' Joe

Uncle Joe and a friend have got together to offer ya somethin' thats gonna be cool for years to come...Heres what Joe has to say about the boards he's offerin':
Heart and Soul Model
Here is a couple pictures of a new board I designed, shaped by Steve Irvin, the idea came from the early '60's but way more tuned and not so heavy. We put a lot of thought into this design. We took an early "60's outline tuned and dialed in 50/50 rails, pinched hard in the tail, added a wood fin for that classic look. 10' x 221/2 x 33/8 thick. Tuned up the rocker nice and even not too flat not too kicked.
Glassed the board not too heavy but with Volan top and bottom and a knee patch on the deck. I'm showing this board around to all the shops and taking orders. I'm not selling this one right now, Im using it as the demo model. Steve will be making more like this w/different style hot rod pin lines and colors. I want to ride this so bad, but I need to get some orders first. Its a gorgeous board. The price on these will $850.00 Let me know what you think.

Thanks, Mad Dog

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess.... 'Will you marry me?'

The Princess said, 'NO !!!' And the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and hunting and played golf and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

The end

Big Duane aint the only cat in Elsinore w/ 2 Honda chops in his garage...

Duane met Fred n Krusty over at the local car show one night and they mentioned they gotta coupla Honda chops, too...ODB n I went over there Monday morn' and were greeted by the sweet white bike w/ Invaders and a 750 stuffed in the same kind of frame as Duanes white bike...Hows that for coincidence?? And in the garage, was this super loooooooooonnnngg purple bike w/ the mini disc brake and alotta rake!

F*ck Mondays

Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.

Stole that one from the late, great George Carlin...

Rumor has it...

...this local barn is full of Pre-War Knucks...But most rumors are bull-shit so just forget I ever said anything

More progress on the Howard Cams Special

Made a mistake in my last Howard Cams post in stating that one of the motors runs in reverse...Lots of the cars in this same era DID have one motor running in backwards (TV Tommy Ivo's car for instance) What made the Howard Cams car unique was that although one of the motors was facing the rearend, they both still ran in the normal direction...BUT one motor had the flywheel on the wrong end of it and a timing chain and blower pulley on the other wrong end of the engine...Tons of machining involved in this...Look closely and you'll notice some other cool motor tricks that later became the norm...
