Vintage Torque DVD #4
The fourth dvd is crazy – OVER 4 hours of material! That is right – another 2 DVD set
featuring coverage from Kalamazoo to Yokohama! We have some amazing cars on this DVD.
guys built in their own garages, as well as traditional hot rods that are in the process of being
restored to the way they were in the 50s.
In December we were lucky enough to get to go to Japan and and we got some killer coverage
from Mooneyes Japan.
A week later Matt Davis from DicE Magazine let us follow him and some other guys riding down
the Pacific Coast Highway-beautiful scenery and some
really nice home built bikes make this segment very nice. (Not to mention one of my favorite
bands The Von Ehrics provide the background music)
Industrial Chassis in Phoenix had an open house and we were able to film them dropping an
axle there-very informative.
One of the best segments for me to watch was the Day of the Drags which takes place just
north of Austin TX. I did not get to go, but HemiDave
was there to capture the action. Another great segment that I really appreciate. After seeing
this footage – I want to go this year!
Special Thanks to Norm and the rest of the Kontinentals.
The Hunnert Car Pile-Up is one of the best 1 day shows in the world. What a lot of people
seem to miss out on is the pre party the night before.
Downtown Morris IL becomes a traditional hot rod heaven as cars & trucks from all over the
country cruise in to check out the scene. We also show
a bit of Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle. The Chrome Czars are the car club the put on the Pile Up
AND 2 of the guy in the Chrome Czars own Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle.
SO I thought that the out of towners that only come to the Hunnert on Saturday, should
know that there is plenty to do the days before the Pile-Up….like go
check out the HRCC shop and be sure to not miss the pre party the night BEFORE the
Hunnert Car Pile Up.
And one of the best quality shows in the country – the Grand National Roadster Show. We
have coverage of the hot rods coming into the show as well
as all the killer rides that are in the Suede Palace (hosted by the Shifters).
(Be sure to see the cameo of Mad Fabricators Originator Piero de Luca give me the 1 finger
salute – I love you Piero & I wish I had a car as cool as the Live Wire!!!)
Overall – there is way too much stuff on these 2 DVDs…...but hey – you can always press
stop and watch more the next day or next week right?
Other stuff that is on the 2 DVD set:
Voodoo Kings-Fire! (lotsa flame throwing!),
Dave White’s Pontiac Safari Kustom
Scottsdale AZ coverage
Dallas TX Chicken Run,
Eric Anderson’s Modified Roadster
Byron Crump’s ‘32 5 Window 60’s style hot rod,
Liberace – this car looks like it should be on the show circuit circa 1961 – only this guy DRIVES
1949 International Harvester….there are so many mods on this thing – you would never know
this was a full size truck at one time!
Flyrite Choppers Open House
Cheater Carl and his 1930 Modified Model A Coupe
Bill Greener and his ‘32 5W – this thing is DRIVEN - as you can see it has MUD all over it!!!
Des Moines & the Cornfed Feast,
the art of Death Ray Design (they did our cover this time),
Murray Kustom Rods – Dallas TX
and the popular Polar Bear Cruise is on this DVD - sponsored by the Bare Bones Car Club –
these guys and gals are not afraid to take the cars
out in the middle of winter and drive em. That is exactly what they do! They cover 45 miles on
backroads of IL with snow as the backdrop.
Some of the bands that you will hear this time include The Ghastly Ones, Diesel Finger, The
Reverb Syndicate, High School Caesar, Los Coronas,The Von Ehrics,
Speedball Jr, Astro Zombies, The Tremors, and many many more. From good old classic
rockabilly to Red Neck metal-we try to have a little bit of everything -
but nothing too out there!
Remember one of the things that makes Vintage Torque DVDs different – you get to see the
cars AND hear them.
So even though there may be some Charlie Hightone playing in the background…if you see a
car getting on it – you are gonna hear it as well!
We appreciate all that have helped us out over the past few months and hope to see ya at a
show in the near future – and if you see me pointing
a camera out the window – dont shoot – its a camera!! Not a gun!
