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.

COMING SOON BANNER.png

Still have dreary weather in and around the Houston area; this past weekend and the weekend to come. First three weekends of the month have Car Show / Toy Drives scheduled so we'll see how it goes. The bottom images are "Sneak Peeks" from one of those shows here in Pearland (poster, left).

HOUSTON AUTORAMA

BRAD RANWEILER / Minnesota / 1963 Chevrolet Wagon

Since I didn't make it to the Houston Autorama this year (second time in 50+ years), I've posted images from the  Autorama Facebook of the seven finalists for the Millwinders Award presented to the best vehicle showing in Houston for the first time. Posted on the left is the 1963 Chevrolet Station Wagon of the Ranweiler family out of Minnesota who walked away with the prestigious award.

I've seen this "in progress" Pro Street Dodge A100 pickup (left) several times in the past year (Facebook) and I can't wait for its completion.  

Weld nuts, Allen Wrenches and a spark plug together and you get a nice looking paperweight (right).

Here's something a little different unless you're into Batman memorabilia    then    these     statues

should be right up your alley. CRYPTOZOIC ENTERTAINMENT offers these two versions of the famous Batmobile on the site, one based on the Batman TV series from the '60s and a current version from the movie "THE BATMAN". It's actually based on a Jim Lee movie poster of the film. Now if I was to get one, it would have to be the original, matte black version from the TV series. 666 were released back in January 2017 and is no longer available. The

BLUE VARIANT (Batman costume) also had 666 released back in 2017 and is still available for $124.99. They are hand painted and stand 9" tall on a display base with Batman logo. As mentioned, the current release (right) is based on the vehicle from the 2022 movie "THE  BATMAN" and  comes  in 

three variations; the BATMAN DESIGNER SERIES, the BLUE FLAME EDITION and the RED & BLACK EDITION which is a Cryptozoic Exclusive. All are pre-orders to be released in early 2023. The statue is 11.5" wide and 7" tall. The original will have 2022 pieces released and the one with blue flames will have only 750 released. They both sell for $199.99. The red and black version sells for $219.99 with only 400 released. It will be numbered with Certificate of Authenticity. Below I've posted more angles and detail images.

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.

I know if you purchase something online or even search for something, the same or similar items pop up or your Facebook Page. I guess those are the "cookies" they're always talking about. Don't remember searching for it but for some reason  I  started   getting   posts

from "BACON ADDICTS ANONYMOUS". They must know something that all my friends and relatives already know. Now bacon wrapped "Smokies" (top, left) aren't new but bacon wrapped turkey? It was posted right around Thanksgiving and I've heard of Turkey Bacon so why not Bacon Turkey (they can keep the dressing!). Now I know that the bacon "sandwich" (top, right) looks excessive but it's all in how you look at it. What I see is a "BLT" minus the "L" and "T", add extra "B"....."Have It Your Way!"

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.
