The other half of my business,will consist of a short blog of my picks, travels and such. I hope not to bore you but here’s a post I made awhile back that has stuck with me. I hope you enjoy. After many years of being into the custom culture of hot-rods, bikes, rockabilly, tattoos and every other stereotype, I’ve become more interested in the story of the build than the scene itself.
For instance this is Margaret from Texas. She and her late husband spent countless hours and many enjoyable years building this Hudson from the ground up. After their build was close to complete, Margaret’s husband unfortunately passed on, leaving the rest of the build for Margaret and their family friends to finish. She as a tribute to him, has continually worked on their project and even had a buffalo pinstriped on the trunk with a matching tattoo on her forearm to remember that he will always be with her and their Hudson. So, If you happen to be on the east Texas highways, you might be lucky enough to see Margaret with her pedal to the floor opening those carbs at 100 mph passing you on the left, because that is the way her husband would’ve wanted it. Story’s like theirs, will slowly diminish, as the spirit of custom culture fades off into the crimson horizon but perhaps that’s the way it was intended to play out. In the end, I’m just lucky enough to have been a small part of this culture and watch it throughout my years.
