Like I said before, Coker is not going to come out and make a public decree one way or the other. He tried to subtly disassociate himself with the situation and when that didn't work is most likey conferring with a legal team on how to proceed from here. It is possible that Coker had no idea this was going to happen, and is now on damage control.

What does it all mean? I think that this is simple, unadulterated mass media marketing of products, events and lifestyles using word associations to add credibility while preying upon the natural good tendancies of most people. While distasteful it is definately not illegal (note: no charities mentioned by name). This is exactly why I will not do business with the named companies or their affiliates until they publicly take responsibility for their actions.

They've got some money invested in this, and endorsements. It's not going to go away quick.

Yep, the Gas Monkey Garage video is alive and well. We really scored a victory there, didn't we?

Jon,

Been here, done that...

With all due respect, you're fighting Guerrilla Warfare using Front-line Tactics.

I want to hear from some of our guys with more than 5 posts, and who didn't just register here 12 days ago.

There's a really important reason that Corky Coker won't admit his involvement in this, even though it's blatantly obvious that he's connected. What's the reason?

And re-watch the video that they posted. It's different than the original one that they posted.

Put it together.

Looks like he is no longer the anti christ of hotrodding. What we have here is some hot rod manufacturers trying to cash in on the younger generation who have embraced the new "hot rod Kulture".

Good eye home brew -- they edited that part out of the video. They're trying to out-spin us. And we wish them good luck in their endeavour .

Corky won't "officially" admit that he funded the video. And, he can't "officially" admit that he didn't.

Why won't he "officially" admit either?

With the baby boomer's becoming empty nester's their disposable income is now being used for toys. Many of our generation are getting back into hot rods. Many are reliving their youth by building cars they built or would have liked to own when they were growing up. Many of the street rodders who built cars so they and their families could enjoy cars together are looking towards hot rods as a more simple type of ride. Thus the number of old school builds. The manufacturers have noticed this trend (probably 10 years old now) but have just caught on. The baby boomer's and hot rod kulture guys have just about exhausted the original speed parts and wheels, etc. and prices on these parts have gone sky high. Enter the repop guys. Fill a market. But it is not enough to fill a market but you have to create a bigger market to be really successful. Coker Tire was not happy enough with selling tires to antique guys but wants the hot rod guys as well. Thus Honest Charley's and Newstalgia Wheels. How do you advertise to these guys that are building old school in the new hot rod kulture? You get the anti christ to market to them. This is what we see happening here and other places as well.

And, here I thought that the "Rat Rod" and "Old Skool" stuff was just for hotrodders that were poor (like me) and cheap (also like me).....................It turns out that corperate America is trying to cash in on that one too............Hope that they rot.

Even though I am poor, and cheap, I still prefer to paint my cars, rather than let them rust. Also, I keep my thong in the privacy of my own bedroom.................Whoops, that one slipped........................

It's too bad you feel that way.
I was in the process of posting my credentials and some sage advice as to beating these clowns at their own game.

But hey what do I know...

By the way I've lurked for over a year and registered in Jan 2006 after I felt comfortable with the enviroment.

Thanks for enlightening me...

I entirely missed the anti-Christ edit. And from another post...

"Just because someone else says something, it doesn�t either make it so, make it right, or true. I don�t care for any �anti-Christ� statement at all."

who said that, and when?

And on what day did it reappear on you tube with that edited out....

Added August 30, 2006

Can't make cause out of correlation, but that's kinda co-incidental.

Don't think that Jon was talking just about you.................many of the posts have been made by new members. It seems strange that so many new members are willing to jump in with their opinions, while us older ones are sitting back waiting to see what happens.

Thank you for your post Poncho, but I do believe it was directed at me.

As a former Admin of a UBB with a userbase of of over 90,000 there is one thing I've learned.
It's the userbase that keeps sites alive, whether they registered yesterday or have 40,000 posts.

You never know who's stepping up to the plate or what they bring with them...

I too have been sitting back and watching (after a couple attempts at levity) but the light at the end of the tunnel isn't looking to be the sun, I was going to offer a way to derail this impending train wreck...

No, suppa roosta, it was directed at me. Like I asked, how long do you have to be a member before you earn the right to have an opinion?


You probably wonder why I just don't do away. I guess I like watching train wrecks, too.
