Description 57 Chevy Street Rod prowls the Night its four occupants searching the streets for a run. Some months back I published a pix goes by the monicker of Bad 55 Chevy Rat Rod. In that scenario its five occupants were rumored to be a part of the Rockabilly Crowd. And they were up to no good. They were cruising the streets around the water-works. Their bad 55 bow tie rumored to run in the low thirteens was said to blast on a mixture of pump gas and Four Roses ~:0)This time round Im sharing their arch-nemesis with the Hot Rodney Hot Rods Crowd. This 57 Chevy Street Rod prowls the long lanes surrounding the old refinery. Her crew always looking for a street run is hard and mean. The rustle of empties is often heard about the feet of her passengers. Though the driver is said to have never tasted the Fourecks. I dont know if thats true, but I do know this. Hes known to pilot his rig into the high twelves when the atmosphere is just right. And tonight the air is cool as the steely look in his eyes. Even his toadies sense that this could be the night of which street legends are made ~:0)Will the dark street-racing duo of the 57 Chevy Street Rod that prowls the Night meet up with the Bad 55? Whose turf will it be? The Water-Works? The Old Forgotten Refinery? Or will they drag down the length of Main Street and up onto the steps of the Court House? With this mob there are no rules. Pandas - Constables - Bizzies Blue Healers Coppers Barneys County Mounties the Bronze or 5-0 Can they catch or even see these outlaw Chevies and their decadent crew burning up the bitumen on a Saturday Night in Their Town? I for one simply wont speculate. Ive got to see the run with me own eyes. I gotta to be there or be square the night the Dark Knight of the 57 Chevy Street Rod goes up against the Bad 55 Chevy Rat Rod from the other side of town. - Ha!U gotta get a print of each of these rods for ur walls! The 57 Chevy Street Rod and the Bad 55 Chevy R
Chas Sinklier, VivaChas! Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement The VivaChas! Story
There's a new sheriff in town here at VivaChas! - - - We have a story to tell U about what it is we do with all these cool photos we make. Long-Story-Short, VivaChas! uses half the proceeds from the sale of the Hot Rod images here to make a difference in the world. We got the idea for making giving a major part of our business plan from the book by the founder of TOM'S Shoes, Blake Mycoskie's - "Start Something That Matters" - it's all about integrating helping others in need into Ur business from the very start & that's what we're doing here at VivaChas! ~:0)
The mob here at VivaChas! works out of what we call "The Club House" that is a small building on the property where Chas lives & works - we rely on third party venues for printing and shipping, so the only expenses outside production are web-site related and that's very low. So what sort of donations do sales at VivaChas! support with the "profits" from Hot Rod, Rat Rod & Pickup Art Photographs?
For starters VivaChas! supports the work at World Vision International. There we and U can provide on a monthly basis the money needed by children in the needy places of the world. Right now we're helping a one year old girl in Guatemala - As funds become available more will be done there to supply water and other necessities many of us take for granted. We also suggest U support a child through World Vision urself - here's a link - http://www.wvi.org - That's a great place for U to start helping as well ~:0)
Now for closer to home. About 400 miles North of our Texas Hill Country Clubhouse is the town of Abernathy, Texas just outside Lubbock. There the hard-working staff help kids & teens learn what real love is all about - self-less love and direction for youth is what they do. The Love Shack is a genuine non-profit just as is World Vision - just closer to home so-to-speak - Go to The Love Shack site - http://www.abernathyloveshack.org - and read their story. They step into the midst of a need in their community and make a difference. Help us help them; or help them directly through their site. VivaChas! supports The Love Shack with a monthly donation - - - U could do that as well either directly or by buying Hot Rod or Hill Country Art from VivaChas! ~:0)
Let's face it kids and teens are the world's future. By supporting world relief and regional relief folks, we here at VivaChas! are pitching-in where and how we can. U can jump in where U want - it's up to U ~:0) Our goal is for giving to remain a lasting part of our business plan as it is in our everyday lives ~:0)
That reminds me about local giving. VivaChas! in a focus of global giving, regional giving and local giving provides locally from our own income from VivaChas! - Hot Rodney Hot Rods - and other sources as we think them up in the future! Additionally, I - Chas Sinklier the photographer behind VivaChas! - teach college students about the Way, the Truth and the Light - along with PhotoShop and other Art classes ~:0)
So - when U buy a VivaChas! print, half what we call "the Profit" - above printing & shipping goes to World Vision, The Love Shack and other non-profits as our bit in helping our fellow man. So there U have it. The VivaChas! story as it now stands. We'll be updating it regularly for U - - - now go buy a nice print for Ur own clubhouse, that blank spot on the wall, or as a special gift with a story for someone U know & love ~:0) VivaChas! - VivaTexas! & VivaYou!
