Based out of the small town of Marshall, in the state of Michigan, the club officially was formed with its first fifteen members in October of 2004. Since the club’s inception, it has lost and gained members, lost and gained friendships, but stayed true to the original idea of its members owning cars and/or motorcycles, or both. We haven't strayed much further from the idea than that.
Simply put, we are a group of guys who, in one form or another, all dig the same stuff: Cars, Trucks, Bikes, Bands, Booze, Babes & Beers. We base our lives around our families and friends first, and the club second. We like to work on our own stuff and ride or drive it when we can; we have great parties and get-togethers, love our fellow members and respect their families, and ultimately just dig having a good time.

SS Car/Bike show is Saturday...

... see ya'll at the landfill!

Johnathan Livingston Seagull- er, I mean Churchill...

AKA "Mad Johnny", "L'il Johnny Dirthill", "Cabey-Wabey", "Der Reverand of Love Unions", "Cora Belle and Beezers Daddy" and "Mrs. Churchills Man Hubbend" (As well as mine)... he is the "Ayatollah of Rock-A-Rolla"... my Brotha from a different motha... and... he got his big wheel put back together-yah!

In Spectacular Harley Orange and Black Mad Johnny debuts his luscious '59 panhead in a supreme effort upon his return from Der Deutschland where he re-assembled yet another Milwaukee Two Wheeled Tractor that he sent piece by piece to our Italian-Germanian "New Daddy" and "Euro-Bro" Donatello Turrisi in classic Radar O'Riely fashion... if I had half this young mans energy I'd rule most of the Americas... Cheers to you my brotha! How many PBR swillin' Michigan Hillrods do you know that have assembled classic Hog bobbers on two continents? Yeah... I rest my case... if you love old two wheeled iron like I do then walk up and give this man a kiss right on the lips... I have and it's not that bad... but watch it with Aaron Morse- that man can lick his brow with his tongue... whew... I still love that damn brewer though- he's the only man that has ever been in my drag racing leathers besides me- I have the photos to prove it... but that's a whole 'nother story... Johnathan  Harrison Churchill- you make your old buddy and your club proud... \m/

The madness never ends

Codys been busy... in more ways than just choppin' dis Ford!

Gipp gave birth to a solid gold small block Chevy

Sometimes...'re in the right place at the right time and you are front and center when something old becomes new again. I went to the first attempt to hold a vintage drag bike race in Smithfield, Ohio. Wayne Skinner and his family put this thing together... along the way they managed to get M&H Racemaster Tires to cast 60 or so of their old 4"x 18" drag slicks from the late 60's-early 70's. Incredibly they still had their molds... Avon, on the other hand, had discarded theirs. These were the first purpose made slicks for motorcycle drag racing. Needless to say this old bike drag racer had the Skinners put his name on one! I'll eventually build a quarter miler around this- British or American powered of course...

Winter in the Mitten...

Winter finally struck the Mitten:
The legendary Dutch oven snorting cocaine...

Indiana cops are still trying to find these car thieves... 

Gordo is contemplating how he can shoe horn this baby into the Fabulous Hudson Hornet... 

Some of the krew went to Auburn to check out the museums and to gain knowledge and wisdom.
