And now a word about Brian…
Brian grew up thinking old cars, boats, motorcycles, basically anything related to or powered by, an internal combustion engine was cool. Financially naive, he set about amassing his own collection of cool old stuff, simply because it seemed like fun. And, fun is what life is supposed to be.
He spent his formative years in the grocery store at the magazine rack, looking at “Hot Rod” and “Rod and Custom”, dreaming that someday, a car of his would be featured in them, and fantasized about going to car shows. Once in a while, after an evening at Sears in Kalamazoo, his family would go to Swartz’s Drive-In in Kalamazoo, and while his folks complained about kids driving around and around and around the place, he secretly imagined it was he behind the wheel of that muffler-less, hubcap-less ’55 Chevy circling the joint with a youthful driver and pony-tailed girl setting in the middle.
Never got the ’55, but he did the girl, and they’ve been cruising ever since in a variety of hot rods, customs, and a few clunkers along the way.
Follow along as the projects come and go, but the theme stays the same. Something different, something fun, just a little outside the lines.
