Showing Some Love

Sometimes you just gotta show your homies some love and that’s what I am doing today.  I won’t be bringing you much dealing with OMGP criteria but if you’re an automotive renaissance man like myself, you’ll enjoy today’s post.  If you’re not, come back tomorrow, I got you tomorrow.

Hecht is the writer and associate editor of MyRideIsMe.com.

I met Hecht when he would comment on some of my posts here.  His comments are always full of enthusiasm and almost always gave me a little chuckle.  After conversing with Hecht and checking out his site, I found that that is who he is.  Hecht is a man with character that really enjoys his automobiles but especially hot rods and old school American rides.  His site, My Ride Is Me, has a lot of great content from general blog entries highlighting cars and shops, to how-to’s and stories, and he even showcases some art.  He doesn’t discriminate, but he definitely enjoys engines that are shaped like a “V” haha.

One of my favourite parts of his site is the “Pinup Models” gallery.  Why, well who can deny the classic beauty of a beautiful pinup model and a gorgeous ride?  Here are a couple of my fav’s.

Heidi Van

Nikki Dodge

Jenny Dee

Okay, that’s enough beautiful women for right now.

MyRideIsMe also has a whole forum for a person to ramble on.

Now I want to highlight a couple of posts I enjoyed.

“Car of the Week”

Do you really have to understand why I like this one.  I am sure it has a lot to do with a certain squared vehicle and Hecht talking about how he wants one.  Not to mention that that woodie rendering is freaking sexy as hell.

Hot Rod Scout

I never thought I would see an International Scout in hot rod form.  I can honestly say that.  Thinking about it, this is not how I would do a Scout in a hot rod fashion, but I still think it’s pretty damn cool.  Go check out this Corvette powered sex machine.

1933 Ford Pickup

There is just something undeniable about a sexy hot rod on the salt flats of Bonneville.  It has an aura that is unmatched.  This is a very cool story of a sexy little ’33 Ford Pickup.

Pocket Full of Possies

…uuuuuuuuuhhhhh  This thing is so gorgeous I can’t remember what the post was about.

2009 Grand National Roadster Show

The GNRS is one of the best and most prestigious shows on the planet and Hecht has great coverage and great insight on the whole show.  If that’s not enough for you, look at that car!!!  Check it.

I’d also like to mention that he has some great coverage on there.  Think I’m lying?

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C, D, & E

So do you believe me now that Hecht and his site is pretty awesome and worth a look if you like a plethora of rides but also really dig rods and muscle?  Well if you don’t then you sir or ma’am need to see a doctor.  I dig his site and it is on my daily check list.

*edit*  Craig “Pikesan” Pike is the OG at My Ride Is Me, Hecht is just a boob.

    We have wanted to do an international long bed (long as in 10 foot, not the same old run of the mill 8 foot stuff dodge, chevy, ford have) muscle truck since we can remember. The Scout Rod is a fantastic find. Nice.
