This, gentlemen, is a personal recommendation. Because if you're here on this blog, you clearly dig traditional hot rods and kustoms. Chances are also that you're interested in seeing fresh stuff in a visually intriguing way. And while you're hanging out here anyway you might as well check out this brilliant movie Cal Thorley and his pals made down in New Zealand. Just start by watching the trailer above and if this isn't enough to make you spend ridiculous twelve bucks on this, take my word. It's more than worth it. Or maybe you'll believe me when I say: Watching this movie made me wanna move to New Zealand. Seriously. So, what are you waiting for?
The article came out great and I'm stoked about that but here's something that can't be shown on printed paper: the hot rod in action. Turn up the volume and enjoy!
Oceanside as the last blue-collar town on the Pacific Coast south of Los Angeles. I've been there a couple of times and indeed there's a more down-to-earth, hardworking, honest-to-god feel over the town. Some people might complain Oceanside is a little more rough on the edges than most other beach cities with their bleached boulevards and polished residential areas. I call it character. And I also think Ryan Allen's mean looking model A coupe lives and breathes that Oceanside spirit. It's sinister looking but it'll never let you down.
W.A.R. Undead. So, if you're in the area don't miss it. More than being just a car show it's rather a party among friends with some bitchin' cars and a lot of loud music.
