This year has flown by faster than a night at the strip club.

It’s already November and you know what that means: SEMA.
If you are reading this you are most likely getting ready to roll out to the big event in Vegas or sitting in a hotel room in Vegas on your laptop. While others are reading this after the show and glad to be home after a long week in Sin City. Hope everyone is having or had a great time at SEMA and don’t/didn’t lose or spend too much money at the Casinos and/or strip clubs. We look forward to SEMA every year to meet new friends and manufacturers and to visit with the ones we see once a year at this great gathering.

A huge treat for us this year at SEMA is working side by side with one of our customers - Jonn Farr - rebuilding one of the coolest mini trucks of the 90's. Some of you may remember this truck as the Ramster or some will remember it as the Pushster.  Either way you remember it. The truck was built long ago by Todd Wilt and then stuck away in Warsaw Indiana to die. Jonn was always a huge fan of this truck and got an opportunity to purchase this truck and jumped on it.  After the purchase Jonn contacted Donnie and came up with a game plan to get the truck to debut at SEMA.

After several weeks of intense planning Donnie got on the phone and started contacting SEMA participating manufactures that would place the truck in the show.  It only took a few phone calls and our good friends at Air Zenith Air Compressors agreed that this truck would represent their product perfectly. Make sure to show them some love by visiting  After Air Zenith agreed to place the truck it was off to the races for the next 6 weeks for a complete face lift of the project.  We have set up an entire web site for the truck at Make sure to join as a friend and follow this project from start to finish.. It has been a true one of a kind story of what it takes to get a vehicle of this magnitude to the SEMA show.

The November issue is full of features and shows from the left coast to the right coast. Several of our freelancers are featured in this jam-packed issue. We start off with the very Hot Gauge Girl Trinity Crumby gracing the cover with David Neals beautifully done 68 C-10. This truck has and will be seen in and on several magazines and DVDs. Next photographer Randall Reynolds captured Brandon Lassiters 99 Chevrolet Extreme who found a new way to use a wheel, check inside the bed. The newest guy on the staff Dan Moermond ran down Tony Baker and his 01 Chrysler PT Cruiser during a show in Kentucky. Finally we have legendary Brad Walker shooting Cody Dillards 91 Chevrolet S-10 that is under construction and looking good to this point.

This issue has 6 shows starting with Draggin Detroit in Michigan were Double D rolled in and covered the Motor City event put on by Vertically Challenged car club. Brad Walker made the trip to the Nashville Nationals put on by a great group of people better known as Good-Guys. Next California photographer Cheri covered the Car Show for the Classes held for the kids at Knotts Elementary school in Buena Park, Southern California. Cheri and Steve also covered the Relaxin in So Cal show put on by Relaxed Atmosphere known worldwide in the Mini Truckin community. Rat Rods have been coming on strong the last few years and our own BLT (Big Lenny Thompson) was at the Road Rumble in Indianapolis, IN to capture all the rods and rust. Pulling out the trifecta in this issue is Cheri who made over to the U.T.I. Open house in Rancho Cucamonga Campus where everything showed up from Sandrails to traditional Lowriders.

As always check out the talented Miles Fork and his work in the Fusion Pin-up were this month’s model is Lacey Nichol. Also in the special features is the wacky female mud wrestling event held at Luckys Autosports in Lexington, KY during the Midwest Mayhem event. This concludes the November issue, hope you enjoyed and had a safe trip to and from SEMA.

Until Next Month, Don’t Eat too Much Turkey, Bundle Up, Start The Tear Down and Remember:  She’s Not Going to College!
