Cuda wheel stands. Mopar Nats 2012
Both of these 67 Cudas do wicked wheel stands together. This was our view from the tower at the Mopar Nationals. The second run the Cuda on the left nearly swiped the wall. We were all so focused on that, that we had to watch the video to see how far the yellow one pulled the front wheels. Both of those cars are bad ass





The Secret Stash of Mopars Hidden for Decades: Secret Stash Part 1
I had the opportunity to document a incredible collection of rare Mopars (and two Fords), tucked away. Some of them were tucked away in an old showroom for an auto parts store. The others at a secret, ancient old barn, partially buried deep into a hillside. It was quite the collection of cars! My heart definitely skipped a beat seeing these cars.

Chryslers at Carlisle 2012
The first time I came here in 2007, courtesy of Patrick Krook, I was on crutches, with a broken left foot and a cast up to my knee. And I had a kick-ass time anyway. Five years later, I'm still in awe. Chryslers of every size, shape and year, carpeting the hillsides of Carlisle Fairgrounds for 3 days in early July, mostly undeterred by the heatwave scorching south-central Pennsylvania and the rest of the country that weekend. That line you see here, stretching the equivalent of three city blocks, was for the signature of one person and one person alone. And he did not disappoint. He sat in 90-degree midday heat for over two hours and signed every autograph. Every last one, including one arranged by Patrick, on a piston owned by Ramcharger Trey Simonson from the Hemi engine of the 1964 Daytona-winning #43 Plymouth. You can see it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26329029@N06/7543298206/ It's said that great men can't be good men. Well, Richard Petty is both great, and good. That's why he's The King. Even if I wasn't a NASCAR fan (which I am) or a Petty fan (which I am), he's someone I could point to and say to a young person, "this is who you should strive to be like, in your career and your personal life." Some of NASCAR's youngsters could learn a thing or two from him. And not just about driving. Six more videos to come from Carlisle; I'm working on them.
