Cars, Culture, and Craftsmen

When I went out for a ride this morning, car culture was not on my mind. But when I saw this gathering at Stude Park, I had to stop. These guys are artists who love re-crafting old cars. If you show genuine interest they’ll offer you some food and conversation. A couple hours later I left with an education, a full stomach, and huge respect. I’ve seen great art in the finest museums all over the world – these guys are every bit as good. It was my lucky day.

I had a ’53 Chevy pickup – it couldn’t do tricks but it had a Ram Dass sticker in the window … it was cosmic
