What a weekend we had at The NSRA Drags. The Stockers boys were their as well as a good few people. Made new friends and caught up with some old ones I hadn't seen for a while from the Flywheel Site. Benny & Steve went on their triumphs and I drove the back up Jeep (the shovel isn't done yet).
Created by Scarlett & Simo Stockers so it has to be good!
The Dirty Magazine will be dedicated to the love and appreciation of old shit, from slot machines, hot rods and cafés to guitars, vintage fairgrounds, motorcycles, music and clothing – as well as people who have learnt and practice old skills in the modern world, for instance corsetry, blacksmithing, signwriting, maintaining old machinery etc...
The first issue is due out in July and (amongst regular features like album / book reviews, how-to's, how-nots etc) it will feature guitars made from tin, the art of corsetry, stock car racing in the 60s, Indianscot's 2 Face, the story of Chicken Snake and Jerry Teel, a handsome Model A, Gypsy Tours in the 1930s, and a bit of pinball wizardry thrown in for good measure.
The Dirty Mag will be quarterly and will be available through the DB shop - we'll keep you informed of developments!
The saga continues and the bike has finally been finished...and what a bike. This was a real special from Benny Thomas and what a job he's done on it...Check it out and weep. He doesn't just build chops you know!
Great week...First DicE arrives and then Greasy Kulture Magazine. This month my pics are featured along with an article Benny and I wrote. Check it out and all the usual great spreads including Jeremiahs Story. (Love Cycles)
