So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us
leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found
out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast
resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so
we're back up and running. More videos to come.
CHUCKLES GARAGE 1936 Dodge Hot Rod Truck Vid with music
This is the 1936 Dodge Brothers Modified truck from Chuckles Garage. It's
got a 514ci BBF and was a kick to drive. The truck has since been sold to
Gregor from Speedkills Auto in Germany, who drives it almost every day and
has taken it to the Bottrop show, and also Headbanging. Its been in quite a
few calendars and various ads in Europe, and while I owned it, it was in
CKD and had a 7 page feature in Smokin shutdown. This was my favorite build
to date. Footage by Nic Alberico and Greg Grundstrom.

When Cars Had Fins
I wrote this poem a few years ago. I was thinking of putting a bunch of my
old photos from the scrapbook up with some Rock-n-Roll by Dagmar and the
Seductones, then Dagmar reminded me of the poem, and I decided that they
might just make a good background for it, so I put it together that way.
All the cars in the early part of the video were either mine, or relatives
of mine. Some near the end were from 1970's car shows in Georgia, Stone
Mountain and Andalusia Alabama rod run.
Also: I've had a few folks ask for the words, so I posted them here below.
When Cars Had Fins
So, I've got this old car,
a Hot Rod...
a serious piece of iron
a duel Exhaust Rumbler
a tire smoking
full bore screaming
hunk of Detroit
guzzling $3 a gallon gasoline
and polluting the environment and
speeding my heart
like a mainline shot
every time I step on the gas....
You can't get that
from no Japaneeze
hunk of tin...
No matter if it does have
more technology involved
than the Apollo Moon Lander...
There ain't no substitute for
vintage American iron
beat for beat
the rhythm of my
teen age heart....
I go out and I
get in her and I
thromp on the accelerator
a half dozen times
to get a
good shot of gas down the
carburetor and into the intake
and in range of the spark plug/pistons
so I can turn over the starter and
listen to her catch and lope and
stutter into life,
running on seven cylinders
till that broken ring
piston wakes up and even then
'cause she ain't smooth...
Ain't supposed to be smooth...
She is meant to run with that
wicked kabooka kabooka
just like Ed Iskenderian
intended her to do...
I ease her into gear and
slowly release the clutch and
she lurches and catches and
like a rocket
waiting on the lunching pad for the countdown
and when I do gas her
rhythm and harmony
out of twin pipes
barks rubber between the
gears and pins me back
in my seat..
As the speedometer climbs and
my awareness of the likelihood of
some rookie police officer
who never had a chance
to chase down a
vintage piece of Hot Rod
waiting, like a kid
anxious to loose his
causes me to
just shy of 100 miles
and let her drift down to a
'cause I don't want to
give him the
The old cops
who grew up
They look the other way
or wave and smile
willing to make a commitment
to keep a little bit
of the old life
a little longer
even if the odds
high cost of gasoline
stands against it.....
For there is something good
in the heart of an old man like me
who can remember
what it was like
to be a kid
