Nevertheless, I thought I'd "make lemonade out of lemons" and use the opportunity to give the site a fresh look for 2009. If you haven't noticed, over the past few months, I've been adding some tiki art at the bottom of the site, guess I've always liked the whole tiki/surf/Polynesian thing that is associated with the So-Cal hotrod scene. At any rate, I'm not sure I really like the current "bamboo" background, and I might play with the color theme a bit more, but for now...I'm liking the new "feel" of the site.
#1) The late 80's through the mid 90's had a lot of guys using pastel colors to paint their rods. (a trend that I'm glad to see pass).
#2) My tastes in what I consider "kool" has changes over the last 10-15 years as well. Let me clarify that statement by saying that while I still enjoy checking out cars of this caliber at car shows and events. The cars built at home by your average Joe on a limited budget are the cars that I'm enjoying more and more. I'm also really "into" the whole 60's style of hotrod.
