Chrome Pipes & Pinstripes Episode 3: The Doctor Is In W/ Guest Jimmy “Doc” Parsons

Listen here!

(if that player doesn’t work go here, you can also find the show in itunes)

Last Weekend’s Show: 2014 NSRA Southwestern Nationals held in Oklahoma City, OK

  • Coverage Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
  • Lots of cars, stockers, mildly customized, hot rods, street rods, wildly customized, a few actual kustoms and everything else you can imagine
  • Spectators everywhere, seems to be a theme this year. Good thing because it means that people are willing to spend money, in this case $15 a head to come to car shows, maybe a new boom in car building is on the horizon as well.
  • Got to spend the day with my buddy Jared. He drove over from Tulsa to hang out at the show and it was great to walk around the event with a buddy that’s not quite as ate up with this whole car thing as I am, gave me a different perspective on some of the cars.
  • After the show I followed him back to Tulsa, had dinner with him and his wife and then I passed out on the couch while the NASCAR race was on
  • Sunday I went over to Doc Parson’s house with the intention of filming a feature video on his hot rod “Rowdy” but the weather was not cooperating.
  • Wemic’d him up and recordedalittle bit for you to hear here on the podcast.
    • Doc Parsons was a racer for more than 5 decades all over the U.S. and abroad
    • Stories that I got to hear but we didn’t get recorded told tales of gold prospecting in Peru, diving on shipwrecks and coming up with artifacts, building a car for some bigger tracks that USAC outlawed before it finished it’s 3rd race
    • his shop was full of racing memorabilia that all means something to him whether or not it means something to the rest of the world.
    • Photo Apr 13, 1 36 59 PM
      Doc’s 1 year in a drag effort was in this car.

      Photo Apr 13, 1 41 12 PM
      One of the vintage photos of Doc and one of his cars.
    • Doc’s “Rowdy”
      The very rare intake with 3 single barrel and 1 2 bbl carb and hidden nitrous plumbing underneath.
      Here you can see the holes drilled in the Halibrand wheels to balance them.

Brad’s Honda Cafe Racer

A couple of years ago I was wanting to shoot a couple of projects to just practice on. One of the ones that showed up was this kool little Honda Cafe Racer that my buddy Brad had recently finished. Yes, this is a departure from my normally narrow focus on hot rods and kustoms but when it’s a kool home made piece like this I can’t help myself.

Motorcycle Feature: Bryce Schmidt’s 81 Yamaha Cafe Racer

Now I know that the main feature of this site is traditional styled hot rods and kustoms, but my motor based interests vary a bit from that narrow niche. I have a lot of talented friends building a lot of different types of vehicles, Bryce is one of them. A local Salina guy, Bryce has a very low, stretched chassis and sickenly fast Jeep dragster, as well as some other projects like this bike. A few months ago he asked if I’d take some photos of the bike in this under construction phase, I’m a sucker for something new so I jumped at the chance.

From time to time I will feature stuff like this that falls outside of my normal scope just to feature some talented builders, after all the main focus on this site is to show off the fact that you don’t have to live near an ocean to build kool stuff. Now on to the photos.

Bryce is also working on a Harley chopper this winter and I am hoping to shoot it when the bulk of construction is done, then of course 2 more shoots with the bikes once they are finished and painted. I have plans on shooting more bikes in 2014, mostly old school choppers, triumphs, BSA’s etc. that are pretty cool and Kansas built.

See you at a show,
