Happy Birthday !

 Celebrated the Old man's Birthday . Happy 75 years!
I talk with a lot of my car culture friends and the story is always the same, our taste in cars and bikes always is a direct reflection of our fathers and uncles tastes and is based upon our earliest exposure to those machines. My father would always point out the coolest cars and bikes on So. Cal freeways when I was a kid. We would visit shops , dealers and shows when we had a chance,  attending flat track racing events at Ascot Raceway in the 70's also left a impression. Thanks for passing along the good taste Happy 75th Dad!

Christmas Cheer!

My daughter and I delivered Christmas presents to the Boy's and Girl's Club in Boyle Heights a week before Christmas, made sure Santa did his part too.

Round head lights

So I was going though all my photos and checking all the blogs that I like and it hit me.
" round head lights " All the bitchin cars have them. It gives them their personality.
I'm Ben Salazar. Proud father,husband, car enthusiast, and member of Der Kleiner Panzers.
The proprietor of this blog has been kind or foolish enough to allow me to contribute. I thank him for that and will try to keep the standards high. But really Sal & I have been friends for a long time. Been though a lot and are still enjoying the hobby, it's in our blood. Can't live without it.

Friday Night Lights !

When I was a kid Friday nights weren't for Dodger stadium or the Coliseum for Rams football , they were for Ascot Raceway and Flat Track racing! My old man would take me a few times a year. Found some of my old programs from mid to late 70's.

The Bikeriders

This song was written by the band Lucero and was based on a excerpt from The Danny Lyon Book The Bikeriders. The book is a Photo documentary view of the Outlaws MC. Back in the 60's. The photos in the video are from that book. The song sounds like Spingsteen meets Tom Waits meets The Replacements!
