this year, the EAA show at Oshkosh did not get a special edition Mustang, breaking a 8 year string of innovative upgraded Stangs. This year they got a Raptor, and it’s got some cool details

August 8th, 2017 by admin

Ford has raised more than $3 million for the annual event since 2008 by creating collector’s edition vehicles, with the F-22 F-150 Raptor this years special edition.

The finer details are the grill, and the side mirrors have a similar jet plane outlined lights, green and red, for port and starboard. I dig that

The F-22 F-150 Raptor was purchased by Gary Ackerman of Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas, Nevada. The vehicle has found the perfect home in that Ackerman serves as Honorary Commander/Ambassador for the United States Airforce’s F-22 Squadron at Nellis Airforce Base in Nevada.

Nicole Rush, Ford designer, and the Ford design fabrication team headed up interior enhancements. With the loftiest of expectations for unrivaled care and precision, building the F-22 F-150 Raptor was entrusted to Brad and Doug DeBerti at internationally renowned DeBerti Design. Betancourt says Ford could not have asked for a more purposeful execution of its vision than what the DeBerti team accomplished.

for some people motivation can be very different. Making yourself unhireable to common companies by tatting your face, neck and head, is one way to insure you’ll succeed on your own, according to Gary Queen

Finding that most people won’t train anyone to do good work as a job security principle, meant learning their jobs off the clock, so he went to work when the 1st guy got there everyday, 530, and learned his job before his own shift started at 8

He got his start in custom painting at collision repair shops in Austin. He learned the trade from the ground up. His job was taping off cars before they were painted, but he would come into the shop hours ahead of his shift to learn the other guys’ jobs. It was the only way to break out of the dead end job of taping.

His boss at the time told him he didn’t want to teach him how to airbrush because he was afraid Queen would take his job. So Queen bought an airbrush and practiced in his garage. Over one weekend, he painted his truck.

“I pulled my truck next to his truck on Monday morning. My truck whooped his truck’s ass. I said, thanks for not teaching me how to paint. You were my motivation,” says Queen.

Queen worked his way up to a Lexus dealership, doing the repainting after collision repairs, but his tattoos got him in trouble with the boss, so he quit.

“When I opened my own shop, I had one tattoo on the back of my neck. I said, ‘If I put tattoos on my head I’m going to make it to where nobody will hire me; that will make me have to work harder at my own business,’” says Queen.

Queen switched from airbrushing to run his growing business, and hired two full-time airbrush artists, Mike Cissell and Tim Murphy. Both used to work at American IronHorse, a now defunct custom motorcycle manufacturer and Murphy is a trained artist who went to art school in Boston.

Murphy had a 20-year career as a custom engraver but said the work became physically painful, clutching tools day after day. He wanted to be an airbrush artist so after moving to Texas, he began working for American IronHorse. When it closed down, he came over to Other Side Customs.

Cissell had been a muralist and was doing airbrushing side jobs for friends, eventually building up a customer base. At one point he opened a mixed-use space so he could operate a gallery and give airbrush lessons in addition to his custom paint work, but had to shut it down because the city hassled him about the ceiling, not having separate bathrooms for each gender and not having enough ventilation.

Tim Allen’s recent tv show, Last Man Standing… pretty funny

May 21st, 2017 by admin

very war of the sexes humor… it’s a hoot.

this is where he works, but when he goes home and is around his wife and 3 daughters he has to try and maintain his manliness in a world dominated by women, and be a good example of what men are supposed to be for his grandson, the little kid his single unwed daughter is raising in her parents (Tim Allen’s character’s house) as so many Gen X people are doing.

it’s on Netflix to stream. ABC was broadcasting it, and just cancelled it. Seems they aren’t a fan of Tim Allens adult oriented dad and husband humor. Disney isn’t about that sort of humor, they are about princesses and merchandising, and Disney owns ABC.

Despite strong ratings (2nd most watched comedy on ABC according to Variety.com) and a loyal fan base Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for the show.

The show didn’t have a ratings problem – it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season on Friday night, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights.

Instead of Last Man Standing, they’ll broadcast the princess drama “Once Upon a Time,” which this year drew… 3.2 million viewers, or half of Allen’s number. It’s the story of what might have happened to Snow White, Maleficent, and the other Disney fairy tale characters… Rumpelstiltskin, Peter Pan, etc.

Maybe a network or streaming service more interested in actually having a popular show will show some interest. Hopefully Netflix picks it up to run with The Ranch… another good show.

“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill battle though, after six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.

you can see a full gallery of one,

Pete "Hot Dog" Finlan, is the one pinstriper and painter you probably haven’t heard of, but should. His work was awarded a Ridler, and the Von Dutch Award (twice). No one else can claim that

2nd credit on the board folks.

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.

Go to

I don’t think I’ve seen this before, but I like it. If they would just drive these in Nascar, I’d actually watch that
