Yet another Cali fun time I am missing this year. The Grand National Roadster Show is a mind blower every year and I eagerly await the photos to see what’s what.
This is an amazing roadster from The Lifters Car Club out of San Diego. Photo by lens and pen king Coop. Here is a link to the rest of the pics Coop posted. This is not the type of car the roadster show is known for, but this is the type of car I would trip out on when walking around the show.
Not much on the net about this Lifters club, but why should there be when they deal in 50+ year old cars. Here is one article that is interesting and has some photos to check out.
After looking at a bunch of blogs photos, there are two motorcyles that I am tripping out on.
The Slow Poke by Nostalgia on Wheels is an amazing build featuring all the right tricks and attention to detail. I like the fun attitude of the bike and feel like the colors and the snail character adds a lot to the design. I check out this dude’s blog every day and I am impress to see all his influences come out in one machine.
and The Fairy Duster by Foundry Moto. This is pure beauty, the colors, the chrome, the bars, the fender, the seat and even the display are perfect! This is the type of bike I would trade all my possessions for.

Just got the notice that the new issue of DICE MAGAZINE has been released. I am sure there was some kick ass chopper drinking release party over the weekend, but I am live across the country from all that so I just get the email announcement. If you have not checked out Dice magazine and you are interested in motorcycles, skateboards, vans or other time machines to a classic time, then you must order your copy today.
I got a subscription for Christmas from my wife. So happy to not have to run to order the new copy every time. Hell it might even be at my house when I get home, wouldn’t that be nice. I like a lot of magazines, but Dice continues to wow and excite me every issue. I think it is because of the casual approach to some topics taken seriously by some people. It makes your interests more fun and not just some facts thrown on the page for nerds. The general approach reminds me of the early issues of Big Brother or music fan zines. Some random words set to the printed images adds so much to the story.

I found these cool photos at a junk store the other day. Some neat classic cars.
A new car?
Big Race Day
A day at the park.
On the road.
