Here are a couple of photos from Detroit.
Spent the Evening in the city with my girlfriend and a couple of friends.
You hear a lot of bad stuff about Detroit but there is a lot of good going on if you
know were to look. 

My little sister helps organise the Red Bull House of Art project in Eastern Market.
She invited us to a party for the bid to get the X-Games in Detroit. Had a good time and it's good to see people working hard to make Detroit a positive place again. 

Just finished some parts.

Almost done. Foot rest for a Fiat 8V.

 Been working on the wood for the model A a lot and still have a long way to go, but It is getting there and I am happy with the way it is going. Figured you all might be getting a bit bored with photos of the wood work so I am reaching into my stash of old photos. They were all shot with my 35mm Minolta. And put on this here interweb with the help of my technologically savvy girlfriend. With out her I would not be able to create these posts.

 Jean-Claude and his 1926 Rudge.
Met Jean-Claude his wife Sylvie, and son Alan at
Bonneville a few years back   
They were all class and made the trip all that much better. Thanks to Homer or driving me around and giving me a room to stay in.
The intensity of the light made for some cool photos.

One Of my favorite hot rods I saw on that trip. Great metal work.
Model A with what I think is a 32 roof sitting on a 32 frame.

Same car out on the salt.

Saw this old streamliner and just had to take a photo of the engine.
Injected straight 8 with a ton of home made parts 

I loved this midget setup for the salt. It was running an Offenhauser
engine. super neat!

This thing is awesome and it ran really good.
Proble had one of the coolest engines in it. Here Is a link to the Builders site
Erik was super friendly and didn't mind me asking him all kinds of questions. 

One of the Rollin bones cars.
