I've always liked automotive caricatures ("CARtoons") and a few years ago, I purchased a couple of designs (right) from Wayne Sadler (CARTOONS 'R' WAYNE) and I used them on a couple of previous pages ("RODDING", "RACING"). I recently ran across them and decided to "revamp" my website a little and repost them.

LOOKING BACK.....

Although it's been a while since they've done it, the day after the seven-day Hot Rod Power Tour (Saturday), they would honor that year's "Long Haulers" that visited all seven stops. The first Power Tour images I submitted to HOT ROD HOT LINE were taken on Saturday in Dallas after the 2012 Hot Rod Power Tour (below). The following year (2013) my son and I followed the tour five stops from Dallas to Birmingham. I'm glad I also submitted coverage to Hot Rod Hot Line because soon after, a Ransomware Virus got into my computer and encrypted only my folder of the 2013 Power Tour. I didn't pay the $500 "ransom" so now if I want to see my images from 2013, I have to go to Hot Rod Hot Line and check out my history.

Just got this video on my Facebook Page and decided to pass along a handful of "stills" from the wild video. The title of the video says it all....."Jet Truck (Bob Motz) Catches Wall on Fire at Summit Motorsports Park". The video was taken at the track in Norwalk, Ohio back in 2019. The final image was posted on DragZine Online.  

More "stills" from a video that was also taken in 2019, this time at a pulling track up in Virginia. The pull was put on by the DRAGON MOTORSPORTS POWER PULLING LEAGUE and the posted images are from the WHEEL STANDING MEGA TRUCKS. They look like standard lifted  4x4 trucks but when they hook

to the sled, they're far from it. It was also the debut of "SINISTER SIX" Mega Truck (bottom right)...great photo ops!

I love "CARtoon" artwork, especially when they post original (B&W) together with completed images (color). Here are a handful of recent posts. Nice looking Camaro Muscle Car (top, left) "completed" with a different   background.  Next   to   that   is  a  tribute  to 

professional American rally driver Ken Block who lost his life earlier this year in a snowmobile accident. Now on the bottom images (right), a nice looking rendering of a classic 4x4 Chevy truck with a "completed"  version  available  on a tee-shirt which according to the 

original artist, is a scam. He never gave permission for his artwork to be used and it's something that is now common on Facebook. I even saw one of my older pictures for sale on a tee-shirt!    

Recent post on my Facebook Page from "C10 TRUCKS". Highly modified (body and chassis) 1971 Chevrolet C30 is powered by a V-12 Cummins diesel engine. Really nice job!

I don't post "For Sale" vehicles as much as I used to but every once in a while, something like this 1964 Pro Street    Corvette   (left)

comes along. Owner is asking a hefty 94K! I mentioned above that I like "CARtoon" artwork 

and when I first joined the "FREE Cartoon Coloring Pages" Facebook Group, I downloaded some of the artwork and actually colored them. They just posted a great looking '23T (above, right) and downloading it was a no-brainer. Let's see how I do.

Since I didn't cover any car shows in 2020 and very few in 2021, I decided to join several private and public Facebook Groups to share my old pictures, some going back 50 years! Below are the latest images that I shared.

For a while, I received images on my Facebook Page of custom VWs, custom semis and custom motorcycles which I would then repost here. I still get a few motorcycles and plenty of VWs (above) but semis, not so much anymore.

Posted a couple more images of my son (right) enjoying (?) himself. The photo with the late George Barris standing in front of the Munster Koach I've posted before. Took this at the Houston Autorama. Ran across the Indy Car image recently that was taken at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum while we were following the Hot Rod Power Tour.

2018 NHRA

HOT ROD REUNION

Before heading to the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in 2018 (Bowling Green, Ky), I decided to make some enlargements of images I had taken over the years including some of "Big Daddy" Don Garlits and Tom "the Mongoose" McEwen in hopes of getting them autographed. They had both showed up in previous years so I decided to give it a shot. As you can see above (left) and below, Garlits did show up and I was able to get some of my personal images signed. Not sure if he had planned on showing up or not but sadly, McEwen passed away three days prior at the age of 81.

All the images above were taken at Texas tracks that I frequented when I was a lot younger. Left to right...Alamo Dragway in San Antonio, Green Valley Race City in Fort Worth and the final two were taken here (Houston) at Eastex Dragway in Porter. The tracks have been closed for years.
