Well, it's hard to believe, but another season of cruise-ins and car shows is quickly coming to an end. But don't worry, I've still got lots of photographs to keep your interest through the fall and winter. Today was the first Saturday in a few months that I wasn't out enjoying the Nifty Fifty and/or a car related event. If you are an avid reader of Suede and Chrome, you've probably already noticed how I've spent my afternoon today. I've been adding to Suede and Chrome since I started it back in 2005. Over the years, it has evolved from a once in a while post in a blog, to a .com that has new material added daily. Throughout the history of this site, I've had the opportunity to share my interest in traditional hotrods in both words and photos.
I haven't really updated the "look" of the site in some time, but I've been kicking around a few ideas on who to give it a fresh look for some time. I may continue to tweek the site in the weeks ahead, but overall I'm pleased with what I've been able to accomplish this afternoon. I wanted to remove the idea of a "blog" since the day I converted it to a .com back in the early summer. With MUCH more storage, this site does not have the limited future that it had before the conversion. God willing, I plan to continue to post to this site for years to come.
I also wanted to give the site a more "retro-traditional" feel. Not only have I changed the logo, headers, border and text colors, I've also reduced the amount of clutter that has grown over the past 5 years. What I'm hoping you will find is that the site is cleaner, simpler, and more enjoyable to read. I've also include several new links to a few car club's that I've been introduced to over the past few years while attending shows in the Midwest.
Thought I'd start the "new look" of the site by posting some pictures and description of a very kool and "Suede and Chrome worthy" hot rod that is currently for sale on eBay. This car is a true example of what hotrodding, kustom kulture, and http://www.suede-and-chrome.com/ is all about.
Thanks for the support you have shown over the past 5 years as readers and followers of this site. Hope you enjoy the next 5 years as much as I have enjoyed bringing you the past 5!
