Probably The Best Grille Ever

I mean seriously, i don't think anyone was even close to being that rad in the year 2000.
Just check that helmet out, it even has a hole to stick your ear plugs in!!!

Chopped EK from 84'

Shit Post But Interesting (i think)

Have you ever wondered what was inside the tail pipe of a Formula 1 car?
I did, i'm weird like that and found this up a 05' Mercedes engine in a McLaren.

I Just Like This Photo


Talking about old photos from the Kustom Nationals, this was probably my favourite car there. Its got a whole lot of writing painted all over it now though. You can just see the start of it on the left door.
Not sure if this cars build was started in Australia.........I hope i'm wrong though.

Kustom Nationals

They chop a car at every Kustom Nationals show each year.
These were photos i took from 2006 and i've never seen pictures of it finished. Anyone know??


I think i was 15 or 16. The photo appeared in the background for an add in Skateboarder and i was told Thrasher mag but i never saw the Thrasher one.
I'll try and dig the ad out.

Nah Fuck Em'

Happy Days

I live for days like these.

Motor #2

This is what i was up to today, head on and valve clearances adjusted. Had to machine two rocker bolts. Smooth sailing so far and so it should be i guess, I've built enough engines.....don't worry i'm very gentle.

Motor #1

Been busy assembling the motor for the hardtop. Photos are in reverse order, don't know why?? Anyways the slugs are in the mill. Assembled pistons.

Rear main seal fitted (the fucker will probably leak knowing my luck) and crank bolted in. Head ready for action. The cam is in the box on the floor. Its only mild, what you would call a tow grind in the 60's.

Had the block bored to .040thou oversize. Thats the only size pistons available.

Hey Charger

In the 70's blondes swooned over them as men with moustaches smoked the tyres........classic!

Oh I Believe

I got the motor for the Valiant back from the machine shop today. Which means nothing except i gotta stop doing body work for awhile so i can assemble it.

She's The Leader Of The Pack Brrm Brrrrm

This is my grandma's sweet motorcycle tattoo. She drops by my house at least once a fortnight on my grandads old shovel head to give my house what she calls a womans touch - you know lace and doilies and shit.

Hover Boards Weren't Invented By the Chinese

How racist was that film Back To The Future. I mean fuck!
Remember when the Doc (no relation) comes up with a plot to send that little cracker Marty McFly back in time just so he can slowly, piece by piece erase the black mans history.
No Shit! Marty goes back in time just to play rock and roll guitar at his parents school dance just so he can claim rock 'n' roll was invented by 'him' a white man!!!. I mean double fuck! How crazy is that.
Everyone knows our little black mate Chuck Berry was the first to combine rock with rolling. and stamp a 'n' in the middle.
Fight racism at the source - Hollywood.

Get Welding

Its just steel tubing folks. Sure its no longer a legal chassis but when has 'being legal' ever stopped you doing most of the things you do in life.

Bobby Dazzler

Daryl Finger's 34 Ford running a Dodge poly V8. Photo was taken circa 62' i'm told.
Daryl had more style in one rolled up sleeve than most people have in there knee high socks.

Real Men Go To Barbers

You'd be a right royal pork chop if you got your moustache trimmed anywhere else.
Thanks for the stubbie cooler Luke, I told you i'd put it on my blog.
The boys at Barebones Barber Shop are some of the raddest geezers getting round.

Yeah speedway rules just like this guy. Do a kid a favour and take em' to the speedway. If he's gonna grow up to wear a white collar and suit one day, he may as well have known someone with grease under there nails.

Aaahh Bruce

A good a reason as any to have a beer i think. Happy days Mez.


Dude i know how you feel. You got all the right shit - shoes, jeans, car and now after all that hard work you found yourself short in the moustache department wondering where it all went wrong.

It hurts i know, i've been there. I've faced the name calling, the whispers behind the back. I've seen the giggles from the young girls and even been refused service at the local speak easy.

Its ok though, theres still one ace left up the ol' Docs sleeve. Just cut this sweet tickler out, lick the back and slip in on. Problem solved.

Trikes Are Gay

This photo came from me mate Poddo.
He likes Kombi's, trikes and long walks through trailer parks.

I'm Still Alive

Sorry fellas I've been working hard in the garage to get the Valiant hardtop done so i got a daily diver next year and as a result i've been a bit slack on WCZ updates.

Check the picture - rust holes in the roof big enough to FTW. I should actually take pictures and post them up, but it's not really a car i think visitors to my blog would be interested in. Let me know if ya keen and i'll do regular updates?

To tell the truth it was just a car i thought i could fix up and sell, and then i told myself i wouldn't start the hotrod until it was driving. But like every project i seem to do, i get to involved and now the car will become just a reliable old car i can drive EVERY DAY and not feel bad if someone scratches it or rests there beer on the roof.

It won't be a show car, but it will be reliable (i hope) and rust free.

Floyd Koddington

Remember that time on American Rat Rods when there head painter left and everyone was was like, "Who's going to paint all the cars now" and Floyd Koddington said to Wayne "We have to get this car done in 3 days start to finish" and Wayne was like all fuck and looking stupid and shit, but was really packing darkies on the inside and said to Floyd "who's going to paint the car" and Floyd was like "relax boys i got a secret painter i'm flying in from the Redfern housing commission flats" but little did everyone know that Floyd was going to paint the car and when everyone left for the day he chopped up a big bowl of weed and pulled an all nighter then when everyone came to work the next day they saw that Floyd had sniffed way too many paint fumes but had managed to paint a complete car and Wayne was like "oh fuck all we have to do now is sand out all the paint runs and buff out all the orange peel" and they only just made the deadline in time for Floyd's second wife to take all the credit for the build. Yeah that was this car.......

Watch This

Add your own music. Enjoy!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009


Oh i should have mentioned in the post below that Ryan also does some way cool paint jobs and pin stripping, both big and small, but if you read Chopped magazine you would have already put the two together.
If you like what you see go here

The True Originals

Ryan from Chopped Magazine was kind enough to give me this rad photo of some Australian drag racing from back in the day.
Theres so much cool shit going down in this photo. Take the time to really look at it, its solid gold.
These guys are the true originals, the rest of us can only follow.
Thanks Ryan.

Fuck Jared

Actually i don't even know Jared, but i'm sure he's a better fella than Sharky, who i don't know either.
Anyways fuck the both of em' cause they both got nothing on the Mez.
Did any of that make sense? It wasn't really supposed to.
Just go buy Street Machine mag on the 15th of December.

You Should Have Bought It.

I had a post a few weeks back on building a cool cheap hotrod.
Well i remember saving these pics of this unfinished model T lakester that sold in Melbourne, i think for around 11k with a heap of spares.
Theres a lot of things you'd change - motorcycle? front tyres and crazy zoomies to get away from the rat rod shit, but a lick of paint and a tidy up is all it would really need.
If anyone knows what became of it let me know - i want that fuel tank.
