TOECUTTERS HATE LIST: It's for real this time.

TOECUTTERS HATE LIST: It's for real this time.: "Here we go it's on. Russian Pete up to bat. Spent all day finishing the frame up. Welding and blending. Stay tuned for updates"
Check this shit out!

Our trip to Tri-C Engineering

 On Saturday before we went to Winfields we stopped by Tri-C Engineering home of Rick Cressie and his Pops.  Itchy is having his trick ass roadster built there with these awesome craftsmen. Below is a pic of Rick (standing, pondering etc) and Itch checking out the new steering installation.

 This is the car in question, a 27 PU track nose car , the noce is hand hammered without the use of an English Wheel, the grill is an upside down early jag unit, solid brass. A Mullins trailer is used for the bed, it's going to be amazing!
 Killer Merc...
 Couldn't get Rick to tell me much about this bike.  Certainly is one trick piece, trackmaster looking frame is bitchen!

 This is Ed Balzer, hye saying "What the fuck do you want?" A fine car builder himself
This is an early sprint car in final stages, look at that beautiful pipe on that Fronty

Can these guys do pipes or what!

Little bit of everything going on here

Hand made intake

If you need any kind of fabrication work from small jobs to complete miullion dollar bhuilds these are the guys to handle your building needs. These is no job that they can't handle.

Look at this bad ass KNUCK!!!

Itchy and Kevins wild adventure


 Met Tom "itchy" at his house and hopped in his caddy for the trip to Winfields shop.  Picked up another Kat at the "Bear Pit" and forgot another one and we were on our way.  None of us bothered to ask if anyone knew where the hell we were going. We roamed around the desert like fucking idiots, asked directions twice and drove somewhere in the vicinity of an extra 60 miles in all directions before we finally found Winfields shop at around 1:30, Mind you we left the Bear pit around 10:30ish.
    Anyhow, we did finally get there and here are a few of the pics I shot. There was a wide diversity of automobilia and plenty of vendors if you needed some goodies.  I think this will be my last time to this deal, living in LA I've seen most, if not all of these cars before. In an hour and a half we were out of there for a lunch back at the Bear Pit that couldn't be beat after a long day of being lost in the desert.


This thing is pretty bitchen, straight flathead eight with webbers.  Single airbag in front, radiator in back, diamond in the back, sunroof top, dig the seen with a gangster lean ooooh....
This is a beeautiful Goddam truck, smoooooth
Itchy on the phone next to my truck "NOT"
