Snot Rocket’s Big Block


The time finally came when the Snot Rocket lost it’s propulsion system. I suppose it’s going to happen with any drag car; a thrown piston, a wreck or SOMETHING will cause a catastrophic failure and a new engine will be needed to get the vehicle down the road again. This time it was some bent push rods and an offset valve or two (I think). Regardless of the problems, the 350 V8 is toast and a big block Chevy engine is the new hotness.

I rode the motorcycle to Clyde two weeks ago with every intention of taking photos of Bernie and Jason while they worked at this new engine. Of course something comes up and I spent hours toiling away at my motorcycle and didn’t make it out to the shop. Well, last week I was at Kustom Persuasion working on my hunk-of-junk El Camino and I managed to snag some photos of the two mad scientists still hard at work on that big block. Bernie takes care of the big block Chevy engine that will be replacing the 350 and Jason was working on the interior of Snot Rocket while also tending to my needs when I needed the help. This El Camino is turning into it’s own saga but I don’t really want to get into that. Instead, just peep some photos of Bernie and J-Money. I can honestly say I miss taking photos at the shop. Every angle is a challenge and the lighting is always absolute shit. That means more time in post-production but it’s always worth it as their beautiful mugs are sure to light up your day.

2017 Upper Sandusky Autumn Cruise


I realized the other day that I never finished editing photos from the 2017 Autumn Cruise held in Upper Sandusky, OH on September 23. Honestly, it was hot as Hell and I just didn’t want to remember that day. Nancy and I rode there form Cleveland, got sunburnt, walked for maybe an hour or two and then bailed. We ate some food (it was tasty), stuck to the shadows and I shot 54 photos—many of those being alternate angles of shots I post here. It was a beautiful day for the show, just not the best day for the show. Overall too hot and sunny to be standing under a clear sky on concrete. Regardless, we showed up, saw some cool shit and here is the proof.
