"Get On It!"

The Austin Texas Hot Rod Scene at

by motorfoot 9/23/2009 3:57:00 PM

I thought that I would post on one of my other projects. Actually, I have shifted focus almost entirely from MOTORFOoT to MOTOR Austin.

MOTOR Austin has gone through several redesigns, including a recent home page update. Since I do photography of local events, I thought it would be cool if the entire home page design would be photo of an Austin hot rod. The home page stays fresh since every few weeks I change the featured image. The current image is of Mercury Charlie's Nadine, since the second annual  Hot Rods and Honeys is in October.

Another project I just finished is a video of a local car night in Buda Texas, just south of Austin.  This car night is organized by the GearHeads car club and has a pretty decent size showing each Saturday night with a nice mix of cars.

Check out the video below for a taste of Buda car night, and check out MOTOR Austin while you are at it.



Lonestar Roundup Austin Texas

by motorfoot 4/17/2009 8:21:00 AM

Friday morning...thunderstorms pound Austin with a steady rain. Just a few pictures of the 2009 Lonestar Rod and Kustom Roundup.

Saturday proved to be a great day for photography...

South Congress on Saturday evening was perfection AND a Frans cheese burger.

It almost felt small town sitting in a lawn chair in front of a burger drive in and watching cars, people, and... what the hell is that?

Unfazed by the horde of amateur photographers, Aliens arrive at Frans on Congress for a quick burger. Apparently martians dig hot rods and hamburgers too.

On Sunday the clouds rested from their work and the sun blessed the 11:00 AM hill country hot rod cruise from Jo's CoffeeHouse on Congress to the Ski Shores Cafe on lake Travis.

What a beautiful day for a burger and hot rod show at the Ski Shores on lake Travis! Mercury Charlie says adios until next year.

Austin | Hot Rods

Saved! Five-Window with Hemi Power -- Hot Rod Deluxe

by motorfoot 11/23/2008 11:53:00 PM

On Friday I got a little treat - a short but highly entertaining excursion in a bitchin hot rod built by Mark Ford of Austin Speed Shop, Austin Texas. This coupe caught my eye on a previous visit so it was blast to have the owner give me a ride in it.

Another cool bit is that you can read about this traditional hot rod in the January 2009 issue of Hot Rod Deluxe, on the news stand now.

Lonestar Roundup 2008

I thought I'd post a few more cool pics for your viewing pleasure. 

After hanging out at a local cruise night location in Austin, a few of us headed over to Congress street to get a glimpse of some of the cool rods. Last weekend was the annual Lone Star Rod & Kustom Roundup and there is was definately a koncentration of coolness!
