Still not sure how to integrate the "Youngrodders.com" text, so I've removed it for now.

rebelbill -- maybe the building could be a shop or garage of some sort?

I was thinking more like an old fashioned drive in. When I think about hot rods sometimes I can't help but imagine what it might have been like to have been a teenager when my parents were. When I daydream about it I get this perfect picture of a 50's drive in with T-Buckets and Wolfman Jack cranked up on every AM radio in the joint...Damn I was born way too late...

Not to mention the trends of todays youth, as I think has always sort of been the norm, is to try to recreate the past in some of the newer styles.
