Moal's GATTO Coming to the 24th
GOODGUYS West Coast Nationals



Article and photo courtesy, F. Zimmerman, Goodguys   

"Gatto," a daring, blue Ferrari 250-powered aluminum-bodied coupe - the latest coachwork creation from Moal Coachbuilders of Oakland, Calfornia - will be on display inside the Moal Booth at the 24th West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster August 27-29 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds! 

The car made its world debut on Friday, August 13th, at the Quail Lodge Motorsports Gathering in Carmel Valley, California.

Nearly three years in the making, this hand-fabricated creation unites exterior themes from late '50s Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Abarth Zagato and Maserati sports performance vehicles in a modern, highly-tractable and road-ready performance package.


Photo courtesy Moal Coachbuilders   

The 2,300-pound Gatto rides on a race-bred semi-monocoque chassis.
Hand-formed aluminum body panels are affixed to the chassis components via Moal's specially-developed superleggera (Italian for "super light") process, one in which panels are crimped to a sub-frame matrix.


Photo courtesy Moal Coachbuilders  

Pumping out 300-horsepower at 7,500 rpm, the Ferrari V-12 250 GTO specification motor is hooked to a Tremac 5-speed manual transmission and is topped by six Weber carburetors. Polished Borrani wire knock-off wheels unite the car's European sports car lineage.

The Expendables.......
In Theaters Now !


Photo by Darold   
As we understand it, three F-100 pickups were built for the movie. The before version, the 'abused' version and one for Sylvester Stallone's collection.


Photo by Darold   

THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren't quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger the men struggle with an even tougher challenge, one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Mike Dingman's 'POSSESSED' 
The 2010

Grand National Roadster Show Winner
is at Sacramento Vintage Ford!



Mike and Dianne Dingman's '33 Ford, 'POSSESSED'
is now on display in the Sacramento Vintage Ford showroom through August of this year.

Showcase of Kustoms 2010



Showcase of Kustoms & Motorama takes place along the waterfront of sunny Southern California, with sail boats and the "Historic" Queen Mary as the back drop.

20+ acres of grass in Rainbow Lagoon & Marina Green Park for you to kick back and soak in the SoCal lifestyle. A 3 minute walk will lead to the Aquarium of the Pacific as well as a myriad of adventures on the water with our water taxis to run you around the different parts of the Long Beach water system to high speed craft to run you out to Catalina Island for a day of adventure.

Long Beach Motorama is a modern indoor and outdoor Car Show & Cruise steeped in tradition!

The first car show to be back in the Long Beach Arena in 32 yrs. Long Beach Motorama pays tribute to the Renegades Car Club formed in 1941 in Long Beach. In early 1950 through 1957 the club was producing Kustom car shows on high school football fields. This new craze grew into the show being held in Long Beach Municipal Auditorium from 1958-1960. This was the "Premiere" Kustoms show on the West Coast back then, with the National Roadster Show (Oakland) being the equivalent for hot rods to the North.

Mike and Renee's New Ride


Mike, Renee and Rocky Kohout with their newly
acquired 1931 Model A Coupe. Mike is our General Manager and Renee is the Assistant Office Manager. Rocky pretty much just lays around the office.....

This 1931 Model A Ford was completely restored by
long time customer and friend Harold Hofferber of Sacramento, California at home in his garage.

The coupe had been originally taken apart to be
restored and had been sitting for 12 years when Harold purchased the car in 1999. The car was painted one piece at a time in Harold's garage and the restoration took two years full time to complete. It is painted Brewster Green with Black fenders, has authentic Apple Green wheels and pinstripes.
The details are outstanding on this little Model A.


Our NEW 2011 Model A Parts Catalog is almost completed! If you have ordered Model A Parts from us, it should hit your mailbox late September!

Car Art From Scrap Car Parts



Meet the man who turns scrapped car parts into sculptures worth thousands of dollars. Australian artist James Corbett, 46, creates these sculptures using old car parts salvaged from scrap yards.

After weeks spent searching for the right parts, James meticulously cleans each part and welds them together. His sculptures are made from gears, radiators, spark plugs and exhausts - anything the artist can get his hands on.



His sculptures sell for thousands - one piece, a ram made out of spark plugs, has already sold for a whopping $23,000.

News From The Web


J.C. Whitney Sold

by Mark Del Franco
 
Add Warshawsky to the likes of prominent catalog families, such as the Denharts who built Hanna Anderssen and the Cinaders of J. Crew fame, who sold their businesses to corporations or investment firms. On June 26, leveraged buyout firm Riverside Co. purchased $170 million-plus auto parts cataloger J.C. Whitney & Co. for an undisclosed sum.

Founded in 1915 by the Warshawsky family, Chicago-based Whitney mails about 38 million catalogs a year. Specialty titles target owners of trucks, motorcycles, Jeeps, Volkswagens, sports compacts, and sport trucks. Whitney has 1.6 million names in its database.

But other than helping Whitney to grow, Riverside has no changes planned for the cataloger. "It's business as usual," says Christine Croissant, Riverside's director of communications.

Denman to sell its Trumbull tire plant

By Don Shilling

Denman Tire filed for bankruptcy and plans to sell its plant and equipment to pay debts.

Sandy Pensler President of Denman Tire in Leavittsburg talks about the companys dire circumstances.
The Leavittsburg-based company filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which involves liquidation of its assets, not reorganization. The filing was made Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Youngstown.
The 91-year-old tire manufacturer shut down its plant in early February, with some workers saying the company did not have the raw materials needed to continue making tires for the construction, agriculture and mining industries.
Tim Boyer, chief technology officer for Denman, said in an e-mail Wednesday that no one is working in the plant, office or warehouse.

Denman needed $3 million to buy new equipment so that it could make larger off-road tires and radial, white-walled tires for antique cars. The company employed 260 at full production, although about 80 workers had been laid off for the past year.

Charlene was born in Portland, June 11, 1940 to proud parents Clarence and Marion Culver.  She attended Russellville School and graduated from David Douglas High School in 1958.  Charlene was active in many clubs, rally and was May Fete Queen in her senior year.  Charlene married Bert Lukens in 1959, started her family and was a mother and homemaker through the 60's.  Her marriage ended in 1970 and she embarked on a career in the hospitality industry, working for the Anchorage Restaurant and the Ramada Inn in Portland. 

In 1971 she met Daniel Cyr and they married in 1973.  She continued to work in a variety of positions including real estate and computer sales and service.  In 1990 her husband launched his second career, consumer show production, specializing in hot rod and custom car shows including the Sacramento Autorama and The Grand National Roadster Show.  Charlene was right by his side and handled all aspects of hospitality and event coordination for a business that included the four largest indoor car shows on the west coast.  Upon retiring in 2005 Charlene and Dan embarked on traveling the USA, Europe and Asia while wintering in Arizona.
 
Always cheerful and very caring, Char loved life and was active throughout with organizing gatherings for classmates, club members, neighborhood associations and just good time get togethers.  Her social circle grew with each and every endeavor.  She was remarkable and memorable and will be missed by all she touched.
 
Charlene and family have requested that contribution in her name be made to the American Cancer Society, Ovarian Cancer Research.

Show in Pomona.
You behave up there young lady! You will be missed.

The Raybestos Roadster Pickup
by Hollywood Hot Rods






CLICK on a photo to enter to WIN this 1932 Roadster Pickup by Troy Ladd over at Hollywood Hot Rods.

by Josh Russell - August 19, 2010

This has been a huge week for the Raybestos RPU, as Troy and the team finished the truck! With the Hot Rod TV crew and magazine editors in attendance, and the Ford 5.0L at full roar, we mercelissly beat on the little red truck at the Irwindale short track and dragstrip.

HUGE thanks to the the guys at Hilborn, FAST, Accufab, Pacific Coast Powdercoating, AutoMeter, Redline Gauge Works, and Elegance Auto Interior for jamming 'round the clock to get the Raybestos RPU ready and dialed in before our shakedown session and video shoot.
 
Just a few loose ends to button up before an appearance on Pinks All Out, and then SEMA...  Fix and finish a few minor items...  Another dyno session to tune the engine... Dial in the brakes... Plus the one-off Halibrand-style wheels from Intro should soon be finished, ready to be shod with the proper Coker-supplied Firestone Indy roadster tires.
 
The Hot Rod TV episode chronicling the build will air on SPEED next Saturday, August 28.

HUNNERT Car Pile Up #9
Saturday, October 9th, 2010


The Hunnert Car Pileup is a car show for hot rodders who build their cars, and drive them. The Pileup is about hanging out, meeting new friends, and seeing old ones. It is about checking out the craftsmanship in others' cars, and showing off your own. It is about great music, art, and finding that rare part. It is a nod to a bygone era that lives in each of us. It is about the drive there, the drive home, and the story that goes in between.

2010 will mark the 9th Pileup, but their 1st show at Progress City in Decatur, Illinois.
Its going to be a great one!

If you have never been to the Pileup, you should check the show's Entry Criteria to see if your car will pass inspection.
