museums on the amsoil inc. road tour

♦ By simple definition, street rodders want to enjoy their rods on the street. The basic concept behind the STREET RODDER Road Tour program is that we want to travel around the country and visit fun and interesting places. Most of us agree that our cars are built to be driven, not locked up in a building. That said, museums do play an important part in preserving history and the items that tell the story of transportation.This year the AMSOIL INC. Road Tour traveled from Tennessee to the NSRA Northeast Nationals in Burlington, Vermont. Along the way, we were able to visit some very cool museums and got a new appreciation of their value.The AMSOIL INC.

sometimes you have to look back to see ahead

♦ Sometimes in order to see what’s going to happen you need to understand what has happened. Think of it this way: “Take a look at the past and it will tell you about the future.” For those of you who remember carrying a copy of Hot Rod magazine to high school and neatly tucking it between the pages of a biology or a history book the following story should ring true.For starters, I enjoy reading old car magazines as they provide a wealth of history and insight. (Or, I call Greg Sharp of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum as oftentimes it’s easier and quicker to get the “lowdown.”) He pointed me in the right direction once I found myself roaming through a July ’67 issue of Rod &…

back to the ’60s … sort of the cutts family coupe, version 2.0

Twenty-five years after it was first made available for consumer enjoyment, Jim Cutts was successful in acquiring a ’34 Ford coupe he’d been previously unsuccessful in convincing the owner of selling for a number of years prior—apparently a pregnant girlfriend took financial precedence, which ultimately brought an end to Jim’s persistent inquisitioning.This wasn’t your run-of-the-mill three-window coupe Jim had finally gotten his hands on, mind you. His years of bugging probably had a lot to do with the fact that the ’34 had a built Flathead, a dropped axle—in other words, it was a hot rod, which Jim drove accordingly, as it wasn’t long before he blew that flat motor up. Thinking he’d learned his lesson (as far as mechanical limitations go possibly), he replaced the retired Ford V-8 with…
