In 1915, journalist Emily Post set out from New York to investigate whether it was possible to drive comfortably across the country to San Francisco in an automobile. 7 years later she wrote her book on etiquette

May 15th, 2017 by admin

Emily Post began her career as a writer at the age of thirty-one. Her romantic stories of European and American society were serialized in Vanity Fair, Collier’s, McCall’s, and other popular magazines. Many were also successfully published in book form.

Originally published by Collier’s Weekly, By Motor To The Golden Gate describes her travels with her cousin Alice and her son as she embarks on the 27-day car trip across America, complete with the elements that make any road trip memorable: the nauseating climbs along muddy roads, the elegance of stylish downtown hotels and the “eccentric topsy-turviness” of Midwestern cities.

Bud Ekins, famous movie stuntman and legend in Hollywood customs, cars, and motorcycles for his movie work, and friendship with Steve McQueen and Von Dutch. However, impressive for his own motorcycle accomplishments. Lets take a look

March 12th, 2017 by admin

Born in, and lived in, Hollywood, California, Ekins began riding off-road motorcycles daily in the hills above his Hollywood home just after WW2 ended, as he was too young for the military until years after WW2 was over, as he was born in May 1930

He was a young hooligan, not going to school after 8th grade, and getting 2 years in reform school for joy riding in a stolen car.

He started entering local off-road races in 1949, and within a couple years, was the top motocross racer in Southern California, winning the AMA District 37 championship seven times. He used a shovel blade as a engine skid plate. Crafty.

Matchless motorcycle factory sponsored him in the 1952 European Motocross Championship and he finished the season in ranked 15th in the world.

In 1955 Ekins won the Catalina Grand Prix, and in 1959 became the third three-time winner of the prestigious Big Bear Hare and Hound desert race, which at the time was the largest off-road event in the country, while at half way, he was in the lead, broke a rim, had his team fix it, and still made up the lost time and won the race 30 minutes ahead of the guy in 2nd place. For his 1959/3rd time win

He hired Von Dutch in the early 60’s, and that’s something I already covered in my Von Dutch posts.

In a couple years, he opened a Triumph dealership, and the young Hollywood stars were dropping by… Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman

Ekins won four gold medals and a silver during his seven years of competing in the ISDT, the International Six Days Trial, a form of off-road motorcycle Olympics.

In 1964, he helped pioneer the Baja 1000 when he and his brother Dave did the TJ to La Paz in 39 hours on a motorcycle and was the overall winner of the the inaugural Baja 500 in 1969 in a Hurst Baja Boot

After the first Baja 1000, Both McQueen and Ekins recognized the potential and advanced design of the Baja Boots. Solar Plastics, Steve McQueen’s factory which produced accessories for dune buggies and motorcycles, eventually purchased both Boots from Vic Hickey.

He was the stunt coordinator for the tv show CHiPS, and did stunts in the Love Bug, Blues Brothers, and Animal House. He was a writer for Motorcycling Magazine.

Many of his collected bikes are at auction every year, just a glimpse at Bonhams shows 6 pages of his motorcycles and cars, who states that Ekins was one of the USA’s foremost collectors of veteran and vintage motorcycles – at one time his collection numbered over 150 motorcycles and was considered to be the most valuable in the country.

In his collection which went to auction in 2010 with Bonhams, were things pinstriped by Von Dutch

a 1905 REO Roadster,

a 1908 REO Tourer and

a 1908 Delaunay-Belleville H4 Double Phaeton.

What the unbelieveable hell, Tonya Harding has a Bonneville speed record.

February 26th, 2017 by admin

On August 12, 2010, Harding set a new land speed record for a vintage gas coupe with a speed of 97.177 mph driving a 1931 Ford Model A, named Lickity-Split, on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

On Monday, Tonya did a qualifying run, of 79.1 mph. On Tuesday, she did a second run, at 83.618 mph, establishing a record of 81.37 mph, from the two runs. She is the first person to drive a 1931 vintage gas coup on the Salt Flats, to establish a land speed record. Also, this is the first time that a vintage gas coup has competed at a SCTA-BNI sanctioned event.

I don’t know why this wasn’t mentioned at the Diesel Brothers exhibit at SEMA, but they are working with Chuck Norris on a sweepstakes give away truck… called, what else, Truck Norris

February 22nd, 2017 by admin

if you go to the trucknorris.com website, you can learn about the truck features by putting your cursor over the red dots.

Right? So, to get the chance to win it, you have to register, join the “adventure” club, buy the merch which looks like Chuck Norris springwater, and the more you buy the more “trail points” towards a chance at getting the truck or something.

Look, retired actors have to do something to pay the taxes on their Texas estates. Chuck’s hockin’ bottled water. Why the hell not, there are a lot of people wasting money buying water, and very few buying karate clothes and belts.

I’ve never heard of Maverik stores, CForce water, or the tv show Diesel Brothers. And believe me, not watching commercials is a relief… If the commercials are any good, you’ll either get told how good they are, or they’ll show up during the superbowl or something. Hell, I just posted two, so you can get some idea of what this is all about, as it’s how I tell you the news that I think is cool, or interesting enough to share.
