Chuck Palumbo
Discovery’s Lords of the Car Hoards Hit TV Show

Chuck is an American former professional wrestler, best known for his time in World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment. Throughout his career, he has become a six-time World Tag Team Champion (four times in WCW and twice in WWF/E).

However, his legacy might be a true car guy.

In 2005 he opened CP Kustoms and along with Rick Dore – who is a renowned hot rod guru – they embark on a hunt for neglected classics- from Corvettes to Camaros- through the backyards and private lots of hoarders. And that's where the name Lords of the Car Hoards comes from.

Chuck and Rick offer up a golden opportunity: they'll tow away the rusting fleet, sell what they can, and use the money to turn one of the cars into a show-worthy vehicle. SLAM gets to keep any leftover profits while the hoarder gets a kick ass ride, and a much needed fresh start. It's the deal of a lifetime, but Chuck and Rick quickly learn that striking a deal means helping the hoarder confront their obsession and the personal struggles that fuel it. From building cars to rebuilding lives, transforming cars is a challenge that puts Chuck and Rick's business, reputations and sanity on the line every time.

We lost a good friend.

Lynn Schultz passed away last Wednesday, April 9th.

Lynn, along with her husband Dennis “Spuds”, was a pioneer in the hot rodding world. Cruising the streets in your cool ride and then stopping off at a hamburger stand.

However, Lynn and Dennis felt something was missing. And that something was music. So they asked a local hamburger joint if they could bring some 45’s and spin some tunes. So for over 20 years Georgies Porgies of Oak Creek, along with hundreds of other locations, has provided music for thier cruise nights and car shows.

May the Lord give her – her own turn table in heaven so the angels will have a rock’n good place to cruise to.

Visitation will be held on Monday, April 14, from 4 pm to 7pm at the FUNERAL HOME with a Funeral Service at 7 pm.

Madison's Autofest Car Show

Richie just posted the recent Weaver Auto Parts Autofest held in Madison. The show was March 21th thru 23rd.

Richie the Photographer

Richie has accumulated an impressive library of car photos spanning the past 6 years. He doesn’t think of himself as a historical figure but everyone agrees that these photos will be referenced in future years. Many hours of traveling, shooting and sorting goes into each album he creates.

So make sure you wave to him as he moves quietly through your event. He might ask you to close the hood of your vehicle to make sure it’s documented to show its full body lines.  We are grateful he continues to love what he’s doing.

Here are the new additions to his collection of albums:

Autofest Car Show
Volo Auto Museum
Hunnert Car Heads Up Nostalgic Drags
Detroit Autorama Extreme at Cobo Center
Street Rod Nationals - North at Kalamazoo, MI
MAAC Fund Car Show at Hiller Ford
Tichigan Lake Lions Car Show
Masterpiece Concours D' Elegance
Allenton Lions Classic Car Show
Back to the Fifties in St. Paul, Minn

See all the albums.

Oldest motor vehicle car in the world that still runs.

1884 De Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout. The Dos-a-Dos (Back-to-Back) Steam Runabout was built in 1884 by George Bouton and Charles-Armand Trepardoux for French entrepreneur Count de Dion, who named it 'La Marquise' after his mother.

The world's oldest running motor vehicle has been sold at auction for an astonishing $4.62 million, more than double the pre-sale estimate, as two bidders chased the price up in a three-minute bidding war.
