JIMI HENDRIX HAWAIIAN HAZE | DUNE BUGGY RIDE OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE TO THE AFTERLIFE

jimi_hendrix_dune_buggy.jpg

In 1970 Jimi Hendrix was sent off to Hawaii to film a movie called “Rainbow Bridge.” His entourage rented a Bushwhacker dune buggy that was over-the-top. It was customized with a metal-flake paint job overlaid with pin-striping, and a loud floral-printed rag top and interior. The crew unbolted the top and Hendrix would flip himself around on the roll bar like a gymnast. Barry Hilton had about 50 customized Bushwhackers at his hotel painted light blue & Gold with big rainbow stickers on the top and sides that were used used in the movie– making the Bushwhacker dune buggy an icon of the psychedelic era.

JUST SOME GOOD OL’ BOYS… | DUKES’ DESTRUCTION OF THE ’69 DODGE CHARGER

“Did you know that the original script for The Dukes of Hazzard had the General Lee painted grey for the confederacy? It did. Rumor has it that George Barris commented that it would be very hard to see the car in the Georgia woods if it were grey. He suggested that it be painted a very common color that is found in every auto shop in the country– Engine block orange. That, my friends is how the orange car was born!” –John Schneider (Bo luke)

A trailer load of General Lees ready for “Dukes of Hazzard” disposal. Seeing all these beauties in person must have been incredible. Makes me so pissed they were destroyed.

JERSEY BOYS BORN TO RUN | FRANK STEFANKO’S EPIC SPRINGSTEEN PIC “CORVETTE WINTER”

“Corvette Winter” by photographer Frank Stefanko is by far my favorite image of New Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen. I love the story of how the two gritty Jersey boys– Bruce and Frank came together…

Bruce Springsteen sits on his 1960 Corvette in Haddonfield, NJ for the epic photo “CORVETTE WINTER” shot by (c) Frank Stefanko

Written by Tim Zatzariny Jr.

“Frank Stefanko and Bruce Springsteen met in the cold winter of 1978 in the unlikeliest of places: a small town in South Jersey. They were young, hungry and had something to prove. Stefanko was a working man, sweating it out by day in a meat-packing plant in Pennsauken, NJ. But, his true passion was photography…

Beach Run

“Beach Run” original 34″ x 34″ oil painting by the artist Richard St. Clair

When I first met Richard St. Clair at his home outside of Philadelphia I was immediately put at ease by his disarming demeanor and quick smile. Soon Dick was leading me to his studio where I was instantly absorbed in his paintings, the layers of mementos from years on the road, and all his incredible photos taken during his years of traveling the country. Seeing the photos behind the paintings in person made me appreciate the paintings more, as the authenticity and honesty in the photos are staring you in the eye.

SONS OF SPEED– A RACE OF PRE-1925 BOARD TRACK MOTORCYCLES | PHOTOGRAPHY AND WORDS BY BRYAN HELM

Matt Harris of 40 Cal Customs racing his 1923 Harley-Davidson – Sons of Speed

Billy Lane of Choppers Inc. had a vision to race vintage board-track motorcycles with his friends, family, and other respected builders and racers. Sons of Speed finally kicked off in Daytona during the 76th Bike Week at the New Smyrna Speedway on March 18th, 2017, after having been cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew.

Waiting outside the New Smyrna gates, there was definitely some anticipation and excitement to see these bikes perform on the track. Since these vintage bikes have no clutch or gearbox, the four riders are positioned at the top of the banked track and are push-started with the help of gravity and some manpower. It’s so great to hear the bikes fire up once the twin engines roar to life, propelling the riders down the paved track.

THE CARNIVAL OF DREAMS | A LAUREN VANCE SHORT FILM STARRING GARY OLDMAN & IAN RUHTER

TSY friendly, Ian Beaudoux, was recently part of a great short film as Cinematographer that stars Gary Oldman, THE CARNIVAL OF DREAMS ~ Check it out!

The friendship and passion for collodion photography shared by Ian Ruhter and Gary Oldman is deep and beautiful. The process is reflected in the inhabitants of Slab City, where those gathered on the margins of society have built their own sense of community. This project is as much about building relationships as it is about the alchemy of collodion photography and the physical act of taking a photograph.

Bummed that TSY could not make it to TROG West out at Pismo Beach, CA. Stoked though that our photographer friend Pierre Robichaud shot these amazing images for us to share with y’all. I can’t imagine The Race of Gentlemen without the colorful (in more ways than one…) backdrop of Wildwood, NJ… but damn if Pierre’s photography and words don’t make me even more sorry that we weren’t there.
