  • My Favoritre Quote

    'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Japanese Customs – over the edge


2196721839_e7dd046cf0_bWell, now I’ve seen it all.  I happened onto some images of Japanese customs and these are the wildest cars I’ve ever seen.  They appear to be mostly late model ‘vehicles, and all are wildly customized. Many had up-swept pipes 2196730503_7e85c05d3b_b(how does s/he keep the rainwater out?) that extended what appears to be four to six foot either up or up and back.

2196733745_ac1c506fc0_bAnother addition is a large panel that is molded into the front which gives the initial appearance that they are  on trailers, as seen in the two left images.  I have no idea what the purpose is or what it is meant to convey. If anyone knows or has an idea, please post and share with us.  You can see the other images from the show on ch.knuckles flickr site.
