Vintage Motorcycle Ads and Brochures... and decals, lots to see here!


If you were to try to find something for a car collector that had everything... like Jay Leno for example, maybe one of these would be ingenius









This is for Will McElman... I got her number for you Will


Designated drivers, think about this photo, roll down all the windows... I'm just saying

Train and railroad photography.. more is better of a good thing


Suede and Chrome .blogspot.com has found some very cool custom stuff!

The candy pails on the carbs are very funny, and functional too!
The left and right panels look like they are cardboard cutouts! Cool!
Horseshoe brake pedal for luck stopping, and a wrench to get moving
Shopping cart seat backs
A Crosely is small, and this kickstand is a good touch
big damn flamethrowers
Barbwire for a grill, and a coke bottle opener on the firewall
This is just funny, the air filter housing is made from the top of an old outboard motor, and someone can imagine how cool a hoodscoop would be made from http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/10/cool-vintage-look-and-similar-to-cool.html
A cool concept borrowed from the "rap" crowd with one gold tooth
How about the whisky jar for the coolant overflow?

Clever advertising! If trailers were painted to represent what they carried







Source unknown, but Tere emailed these to me... thanks!

I got the seat upgrade from cult leader!

You'll need to do alot of reading of Zina's blog to understand the reference, but it's a lot of funny stuff... and you'll likely join the Pirate Monkey Cult (PMC) too.

Photos by Dirk "The Pixeleye" Behlau

















Mopar fan? Looks like it! Also seems to love drag racing, rock, and staying busy with the camera making videos (maybe that's the best way to hang out with pin up girls... seems to work for several photographers.. think Coop)
http://www.pixeleye.de/ has the full range of his work, but look into http://pixeleye.smugmug.com/ for the 58 galleries of hot rods, drag race events, pin up girls and cars, Le Mans Classics, and custom choppers.
