I had this idea of a tribute poem to Von Dutch, Big Daddy Roth and Robert Williams in my head for over three years. They are the godfathers of hot rod culture. If it weren’t for them, there’s a good chance we wouldn’t have pinstripes, fiberglass cars and hot rod/ chopper shows on reality T.V. […]
I haven’t posted much since I’ve started my new job. In fact, it’s been five months since I’ve been able to sit down and write anything. A couple of weeks ago I realized that we were halfway through the year and I haven’t accomplished most of my goals that I set for myself at the […]
