Pure Brilliance – Michael Petramalo’s 1954 Chevy Pickup

Pure Brilliance – Michael Petramalo’s 1954 Chevy Pickup

The pickup was born as a farm hand. Destined to spend its entire life in the fields, it was the bare basics… built for durability with a mundane powertrain, a sparse interior, and very little flash in the styling department. This segment of the automotive market evolved and the pickup eventually became an urban social climber. The utilitarian aura of earlier pickups make them great hot rods, and the fat-fendered Chevy’s of the ‘50s are among the most desirable of these platforms.

It’s the 2009 SEMA Show Mega-Post!

Ok, so we can’t promise this will actually be a “mega-post”. We’re not even sure what that means (though it does sound catchy). What we can say is that our guys Steve and Mark are taking in the sights at SEMA 2009, and sending pics to make the rest of us jealous. Bookmark and check back to see the latest!

Caption It!

Caption It!

. Our last “Caption It” contest drew some hilarious entries. So let’s do it again! Hot rodders sure are an eclectic bunch, as evidenced by this shot we took at the Spokane, WA Goodguys event a couple weeks back. Caption it in the comments, then we’ll choose a winner next Friday (the 11th) and award a car care prize. Dude! Free car care! Go to the comments…

Aces: Cars of The King’s Men Poker Run

They were lined up around the block most of the morning. Hot rods, customs, and classics of every flavor descended on the Griot’s Garage shop this morning for a poker run hosted by the King’s Men Car Club. Enjoy the photos, and be sure to check out the Goodguys show this weekend to see these (and tons of other) awesome rides.

There’s just so much that’s right about this shot from our Flickr Group member, Chad Lunn. Great perspective and composition, awesome contrast, and just enough black to let us know this menacing hot rod is not to be trifled with. Thanks for being part of our group, Chad. Hope you enjoy your car care prize!
