Cars and Coffee - Now in Oklahoma City!

Posted by Phil on 12/7/2019 to Shop Projects & Shows
So, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you probably know we moved our shop and family out to Oklahoma a couple months ago- I'll go ahead and use that as an excuse for taking so long to update the blog this time!

Things have settled down from the move, and today I took the Datsun out to the local Cars and Coffee about 30 minutes from home.  I fully expected it to be filled with Mustangs, Camaros, and Corvettes... and it totally was.  BUT- there were also a TON of awesome and unique cars out there!  I got to talk with a bunch of people about their cars and mine, and had a great time.  Really looking forward to the next one!

First off, here's my car as usual.  I got so wrapped up with talking to people about their cars I forgot to take any pictures of mine!

2 liter turbo swapped Caddy

One of TWO Roadrunners out there today!

Lotus Elan

You might recognize this Z from my SEMA coverage- didn't realize he's a local!


Clean Cadillac Fleetwood- look how long those rear doors are!

I spoke to the owner of this Monte Carlo for a bit- he's part of a local lowrider club called Illegal Toys.

A pair of bagged trucks from another local club- Layd II Rest. I got to speak with the owners quite a bit- always good to have other like-minded people around!

'Bagged 'Vette


Z31 Turbo

For my California friends and family- this was the price of gas this morning! 

SEMA 2019

Posted by Phil on 11/30/2019
I'll keep the writeup short and just let you check out some of my favorite vehicles from this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas.  If you're a car enthusiast of any type- lifted, lowered, high performance, whatever- you HAVE to go to this show at least once in your lifetime!

The Trucks:

My heart has always been with lowered cars and trucks, but huge lifts with Boggers still make me happy! 

The Cars:

'F8 of the Furious' Murcielago rebuilt/restored by Tavarish on his YouTube channel 

Peter Brock's "Brock Buster" Datsun 510- I believe this was the only 510 at this year's show? 

Z32 with a 2JZ swap! 

The Huracan built by B is for Build on his YouTube channel- twin turbo LS power! 

Daniel Wu's Honda was the highlight of the Honda booth:

But this N600 powered by a modern motorcycle engine was rad, too! 

Harlequin Polo

This Celica had a vintage look, but held a big surprise under the hood! 

Another Datsun Roadster at SEMA?  I'm not complaining at all! 

The Jaguar E Type designed and built by Chip Foose had billet wheels that look just like old-school spokes! 

Best. Gremlin. Ever. 

I've got a couple hours of roll-out footage to whittle down into something that won't put you to sleep - if/when I get that posted I'll be sure to link it here!
