I dont know where to start, If you see this in person its small, low, and looks like it'll be really fun to drive....just maybe she'll be done by Cobo 2012
Well well well, look whos back.
not sure were to begin y'all. Well it was brought up at the last meeting that this aint been updated in quite some time. Well here goes. It was a super busy summer Sins of Steel was awesome, since then pretty much weve been driving and planning whats next for us. a few trips to Ohio was good for us. Not alot of shows but a good amount of driving, I'll post some random shots from our summer within the next few days. We have two new members in the club who should have been down from the start Tom an Matt are great brothers and true traditional car guys for life . We have quite a few projects going down this winter as well so some of our cars may look a lil different come spring. We also have two in progress hot rod builds in the club , I know i know your used to seeing customs are here but as we are maturing our cars are getting older. We've been ironing out alot of things lately and from a founding member i must say it is feeling more like a family every day. Were right where we need to be. So for now our sights are on our projects and getting all the cars you've not seen of ours to Cobo Hall instead of just showing up with the same old stuff. Were planning on leaving that stuff at home and showing off some of our hidden gems. So I'll try and keep this lil blog going as we cover our winter projects and new builds. and after the first of the year possibly a list of shows for next year, if we decide to do shows this year. We spent alot of this past summer only going to shows that benifit our traditional hot rod community and the rest of the time travling to thing or places we havent been. We dont want this thing to get stagnent. So check back from time to time and well have some updates but it wont be like it was all random girlie pics and links, only solid info and pictures of our progression in to this next year.

It's been a long time, I promise again taht ill keep up on this more frequently. It's hard during summer. We have had a suggestion that all the members have access to this so any time at random anyone in the chapter can post on here. So on to the latest news around the campfire. Brother Eric is shipping off to Iraq next week (we wish him well and hope to see him soon) and he left us the keys to the 31.... oooooh boy! Also Chris's new chassis is ready for paint, we may have some pics soon of a trim and paint change on the Red 49 Cartermobile, Roberto's 59 Elky is awaiting a really unique wheel and tire combo which is on its way, Dave's new 72 SuperVan is the raddest daily driver around, Franks 59 F-100 is gettin a bit of road time and just may see the Gasser treatment this winter, And we have been Seeing alot of Crazy Tom & Ionia Matt lately and it's a good thing. In merchandising news Were almost out of our current shirts and they have been discounted, after that i do believe we're gnna plan our next thing which probably wont pop up till end of fall. The last 12 months have brought forth alot of progression in our work, we lost two cars but gained two better ones, we had two big facelifts on two vehicles, and gained a few older projects, I feel were coming in to our own quite well as most of our current vehicles are close to finished. In other news Dave has become a So-Cal dealer and has plans to open a Speed Shop in berkley right off of woodward within the next year keep that in mind for any future hard parts needed for traditional hot rod chassis. This year we have concentrated on ourselves rather than shows and cruises, if you see Dave at a show or cruise it's most likely he'll be in the SuperVan pedalin gear, and were doing a frame off on Chris's new Ford, and We put Franks truck on the road so he can terrorize Wyandotte. Next up most likely some cruises to the Drive-In, and Bars, Bonfires and BBQ's. Were workin on our brotherhood and our cars as much as we can I'm proud to see what were doing together, it means more to me than driving to Hunnert AGAIN. So stay tuned as hopefully a few of the other fellas post up pic's and progress on what they're workin on.
Have a safe 4th everyone and don't get to crazy!

Here's some random pic's from the course of the day cars, people, and events. It was soo much fun were definatley going to keep uping the ante on games. The horseshoe tournament is a staple, members from every local club were in it, it kicked ass. The pedal and shoppin car races were so crazy it was fun to see abunch of liquored up adults acting a fool. Food was great, and a big thank you to anyone who brought anything to help out. I'm confident that next year will be even better. We are going to continue the your bring a car you get a patch from here on out so don't make any plans for the saturday of Memorial Day weekend ever again cuz you'll wanna be at the BBQ. Anyone down for mini bike flag drop drag racing next year ?????
