Well here is the final design for GBM's Kulture Blog.com decal. I Hope to be able to start handing them out in the next couple of weeks. These will look great on your tool chest, garage wall, beer cooler or wherever. Subscribers email me your mailing address to Bingo@GarageBoyzMagazine.com if you'd like one.
Ironically now-a-days there is big money being spent putting together rat rods that are meant to look like junkers.What was once a derogatory term for an unfinished cobbled together, non-period correct mish mash of parts custom build, is now a term and style being embraced by the masses.

It got me thinking about how important it is that those with knowledge and passion of the Kulture pass it on, or it will just fade away.
So many times people are so wrapped up in just owning their car or bike that they forget how impactful just seeing it can be to the next generation or other people in general . Many of us are into the Kulture because of seeing or hearing, or riding in, or being around one car or bike or group that triggered our desire to own an old piece of American iron, or become a Kulture Artist or whatever.
How often do we forget that the hot rod Kulture can be a family affair. Sure its fun to hand with your buddies, shoot the breeze and talk shit, but what about passing the torch. Most kid's knowledge of cars today stop at what they learned from watching The Fast and the Furious or from the latest video racing game. Why not bring the kids out to a show to see the Kulture, or how about just inviting your kid to come out to the car or bike while your fixing it or just tinkering with it. Your passion and knowledge may just help the future generation love and appreciate the old iron and keep it going.

This '23 Ford C-Cab delivery wagon was one of the local cars being shown at the Laurel Lion's Car Show. I liked this car alot as it reminded me of some of the funky hippy wagons I liked as a kid. It just has that 60's anything goes kustom look to me. It is a port-hole bubble window, "Shagin Waggin" lettering and psychedelic paint job away from shere perfection. It was a fun car to look at, and I had the pleasure of seeing it again at the Frederick Car Show the next day. This is another car I hope to find out more about in the future and hopefully write up a complete feature article.
