Hey now, I have to be respectful of our older.. quite OLDER members (j/k poncho) without crossing the line. I still post around here occassionally, you might/might not have seen me post but you are right that I've been really busy and don't have time to really do things as much as I would like to.

the thing that gets me is the "west coast choppers" german cross stickers on everything from escalades to old beaten farm trucks.

I'm thinking of getting one that says "east coast lawnmowers" just for kicks.

The image has been around for 100's of years on vessels. Another "don't mess with me" / "warning" image.

The most feared modern version of the "skull" motif was worn on the collars and caps of Waffen SS troops in Hitler's Germany 1933-1945. And, the funny thing is, the Nazis ripped it off from some other historical people.

If you look back at rod magazines in the 70s there are several articles dealing with the LA Roadster's showing their "clubhouse" and many of the "decorations" there are emblazoned with swastikas, SS emblems, and Iron Crosses (the Maltese Cross actually, predates the Nazis by decades), and some vehicles in that time had the plainer German black cross with white outlines as used on vehicles and aircraft in the WWII era.

This doesn't mean diddly but was a form of "rebellion" against the times and authority.

I think it is funny as hell that little girls and women wear "VonDutch" fashions and have no inkling about what that really is.

I also found the Von Dutch thing kinda silly also. Of course some people will slap any label thrown at them on their chest/***/head.

I guess they feel that nothing demonstrates your individualism like being like everyone else!!!

That doesn't even make sense to ME; and according to my wife - I am just about the oddest ball you'll ever run across!!

I think that I will just stick to flames and pin striping (and I had the audacity to question SKULLS?)!!!
