kustoms, hot rods, and olive trees

Being a family man, it keeps getting harder to make sure everyone at home is happy. And it just gets worse when it comes to choosing a destination for a weekend trip or a family vacation. Luckily, there are guys like Max Trono who know how to throw a party. A party that doesn't just appeal to the kustom or hot rod guy but also to his wife, his kids, and his friends. It's called the Kustomweekend and it's usually held sometime in May, consisting of a car show, pool parties, surf band concerts, soap box races, flea market, barbecue and much more. Okay, I guess you get the point. There's something for everyone. And best of all, it's situated in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, in the beautiful Chianti region just south of Florence.

I know, there hasn't been much going on here lately. But as they say, work always gets in your way. Or sometimes it's just life itself. Anyway, a few days ago, a charming letter made it through the firewall in my brain. It mentioned a movie project. A movie about several things very dear to my heart: speed, passion, perseverance, love.

And best of all, there was a link to the trailer of that movie. I watched it immediately, not only because it's only a few minutes long. I watched because it grabbed all of my attention. It gave me goosebumps. I was thrilled. But there was also some fine print: the movie doesn't exist –– yet. Unless I and you and some other fellas out there get their shit together and send some funds to make all of this happen. So, here's what you gotta do: Follow this link, enjoy that beautiful trailer, and show some support. I sure will.
