Evidently, somewhere in this country (not Houston!), straight-line R/C Racing is pretty popular and TRAXXAS is on top of it. Check out a few of their "OUTLAW" releases below. They got my attention!

I love nostalgic rodding and racing and below are two vehicles that were originally built sixty years ago and were recently up for bid at a Mecum Auction in Indy.

Ever since the Pandemic hit, I've been pulling my old 35mm negatives out of the garage and converting them to digital. I then joined several Facebook Groups that post certain types of vehicles. My current favorite has to be "T-BUCKETS ONLY" and  after converting 

thousands of my negatives, I was surprised how many T-Bucket images I've taken over the last 45+ years. Anyway as I post images on the Facebook Groups, I'll also post them here. Check out a few of those T-Buckets.

This '51 Chevy has all the right "period" mods including ghost flames and a tuck and roll interior. What got my attention was its 235 Chevrolet six-cylinder engine with an Offenhauser dual-carb manifold and valve cover and a Fenton exhaust header.

If you think this 1967 Nova wagon looks "different", you'd be right. The original four-door body was converted to two-door using doors and quarter panels from a two-door Nova coupe. Add an LS1 engine backed by a manual six-speed trans and you'll make the cover of Super Rod Magazine (May 2004).

Nice looking '53 Ford pickup but again, what caught my attention was what was under the hood. How about a 383 Stroker with aluminum heads and a Weiand blower? Bed looks nice too!

Here are a few more vehicles that stood out. Flamed '71 Plymouth Satellite was immortalized; first by making the cover of Hot Rod Magazine (February 1983) and then as a Hot Rod Magazine series release by Johnny Lightning (right).
