Dear the 3 people who read this blog,

I've got another contributor! Bo Anderson of long beach and hand job fame. Should help put a little more spice into the life of this blog. My computer has a virus so I'll only be able to update via my iPhone for a while. Enjoy!

Cycles South

The following clip is the probably the best argument I've ever heard for getting a motorcycle. If this doesn't get you at least a little moist and goosepimply, then you my friend, need to check your pulse, cause YOU DEAD. Either that or you've obviously given up on life and should probably move to Liesure World, fall asleep snoring while watching Wheel of Fortune and shit your pants.

Cycles South, incidentally, is a bitchin' movie and you should probably watch/revisit it. Three best buddies travel from Denver to Panama on old thumpers (buying little 2-stroke kawasakis when those break), thrashin' on their bikes, fishing, camping, getting drunk, freaking out on marijuana and hooking up with gnarly chicks the whole way! Makes you were 21 years old in 1971 when thing were simpler, America was free-er, and even if the women weren't very pretty, at least the motorcycles were.

i stole all of this.

The fabled and fabulous "Boothill Express".  Without doubt the most famous Kustom Kar of the 60s and 70s.  Born in 1850, this historic Cunningham Hearse, drawn by four horses, carried Bob Younger, late of the Jesse James Gang to Lee's Summit and his appropriate reward in 1887.  In 1966, Ray Farhner resurrected the old hearse, dormant for decades, and created an instant winner at Rod & Custom shows from California to the East Coast.  And the horsepower increased from 4 horses to 500, thanks to the modified Chrysler Hemi V-8.  The fame of the "Boothill Express" reached its zenith when it became the only Kustom Kar ever exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art.  Later owned by the incomparable, George Barris, this icon of American individualism has come to permanently rest in peace in the Volo Auto Museum.
