The goals of Motorheadmen.com
A small group of men and women who felt there were a few things missing from the Old school automotive culture on the Web. So we decided to bring a new look to the old times. A time when Old school car building was different, and finding the parts to build your ride was a journey filled with the stories from the men who wanted to help with other people’s builds.
A New Beginning to An Old Life
From the 50’s until the 80’s life was different. Motor parts were not as easily available and we went to Salvage yards to find what we needed to build our rides. In fact, half the fun of building the old machines was sifting through the Salvage yards for hours for that single part; listening to the seasoned builders, who always had a tip to help the build or a fascinating tale that went along with that little part. As time goes on, we are losing those stories as well as the Salvage yards that made it possible to find what we needed. And so, a few old Motorheads decided to document and share those old stories and to save and share the images from the yards that are left today, before they are all gone. It was a battle to find parts, but it was a fun battle at times to walk the yards. So, we started documenting the stories and the men and women who still live the old school ways.
This site is a tribute to the old school Motorheads of the world. Men and women who love turning wrenches and getting their hands dirty for building their own rides. It does not matter if it’s a hot rod, a truck, a bike or a muscle car. If you are a Motorhead you are welcome. We are not after the most popular or the everyday wrencher. Our goal is to provide stories of the men who build cars from scratch during a time when every part had to be found. Their stories are priceless. The guys who always helped other to learn and build their rides from whatever they had to use. These men always had a good lesson to help the men and women and always had a story to go along with their lesson.
Also, there are many men and women today working to preserve the history and we are glad to help them bring it to one spot on the Web.
Long ago, when life was simple and motor parts were not so easily found; a fervent group of men established a community to gather people with a passion of building old-school vehicles. And so sprang the idea of Motorheadmen.com. Initially, it was focused on interviewing old school men and women who had spent their lives building the cars since the days when you spent as much time searching for parts as you did building. Back in the late 70s, all through the 80s and the early 90s; when it was way harder to build those vehicles. Back when every little town had that one good-old, motor- guy who shared their skill and advice to help others build their dream cars; who knew all the stories; all the salvage yards, and all the tricks to make it possible. Also, to show and share the stories of the men that went out of their way to find parts and cars in order to save them in hope someone would need that part or that old car. Now we are losing the salvage yards and all the stories that go along with them.
Sadly though, these treasures of old-school veterans are being lost to the world. And people like us, just cannot bear this loss. Hence began, motorheadmen.com; a website dedicated to the lost stories of building old-school vehicles. To offer our skills and mindset to anyone who’s interested.
We sought out to interview some really cool veterans of this art. Masters of motoring with intriguing accounts of their lives and builds; leading to more old-timers and even greater stories. We strongly felt that this needed to be preserved on video and continued our quest. Today, after only a year or so, we have more than 100 leads and still more pouring in every day. We also have been able to get some pretty awesome stories from the men that remember those days and the true efforts of these men in order to preserve them.
We hope you stay tuned to our channels and enjoy our work.
This site is for everyone who is adult enough to understand.
It is a space to hang out with fellow Motorheads. An Old school place, where noone is being watched or monitored; because we are adults. And we are quick to blacklist anyone who cannot act maturely. We are not perfect, but we are working on making a good place to have fun the old-fashioned way. A place to share your own stories or old car builds.
It started out with a small group of passionate photographers taking pictures of beautiful ladies with sexy cars. But, some social media sites wouldn’t approve; stating it was too racy.
But to some old-timers it was not racy or erotic, it was a part of the culture that we grew up in Many of us grew up enjoying sexy ladies next to beautiful cars. We were used to eyeing photos of hot girls on dream cars on Calendars. It was a tasteful cultural aspect. Who doesn’t remember those old Snap On Calendars?
WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT WE WANT TO SEE ! We are not politically correct and we dont care.
Yes, the world is a different place today and you can find things online that you cannot un-see, but this is not that site. Here you will find tasteful media of beautiful scantily clad women and bad-ass cars. Our social media site will always be a free site, because we are not corporate leeches. We do ask anyone willing to help us to keep our work going to either donate to our cause so we can pay the photographers for their hard work with the beautiful ladies and the sexy machinery. We had to come up with a way to make a few dollars to help keep all this alive and running on the Web. Follow the links if you would like to help our efforts.
A side Note about today’s builders
We are not here to bash anyone or put down today’s art of the builds. But simply to share the way it was in the past There are many many men and women out there doing amazing builds with everything the world has to offer. In ways we wish we had the resource available today to build the machinery. The world of building cars has change in the last 15 years. There are some incredible retro builds today and talented men and women with the passion to see them through. We salute all the true machinery builders today.
Being able to build the right ride the way we want it is a true passion; a passion that we hope is passed on to all the young men and women that love cars and old machinery. With out the stories and the history we have nothing. The true young builders today need to see and learn where it all started.
Meet the Team
It is our vision as a team to help the young car lovers meet the old car lovers; to help them understand the way it was in the past and to help anyone that needs it whether it be a new Hot Rod or a old Hot Rod. Here, we all share the view that we decide what we want to bring to the Web. We all work together from all different areas of the world to build and maintain the Motorheadmen Networks.
WE ARE A SMALL TEAM RIGHT NOW BUT ARE GROWING IN LEAPS AND BOUNDS EVERY WEEK. WE HOPE TO PROVIDE SOME GREAT ENTERTAINMENT AND LEARN AS WE GO; TO BE A GREAT OLD SCHOOL MOTORS TYPE OF WEBSITE!
WE HOPE YOU ENJOY WHAT WE ARE DOING AND HOW WE DO IT.

When I first came onto this project, my first meeting was a photo shoot. The photo shoot was a lot of fun, but the more our conversations progressed the more involved I became. The reason I love being a part of this project is because it is amazing to work with someone who is as passionate about getting things accomplished as Bill is. He has a serious passion to provide a better place on the web for old school car guys. For years I’ve tried to figure out what my purpose was and, I believe I found it. How I fit into this project is my knowledge in the IT field. For over 4 years I was an Technical Support Adviser and I learned numerous programs while working in this position. My most current position was IT Administrator. I learned a great deal about IT programs. I didn’t have any knowledge of before. Does that make me an expert at photo/video editing? Clearly it does not, but my passion for it, well let’s just say I’ll let my work speak for itself.

After graduating high school in the mid-west I joined the US Military for 3 years, spending 1 year overseas in Korea. I am a mother and a business owner. I am a free spirit determined to get the most out of life. I worked in Corporate America for 17 years before deciding I needed to do things differently.
I have been doing small modeling jobs off and on for a few years. I don’t take myself too seriously here, I am completely comfortable in my imperfect skin and I hope to see more women feeling the same.
“The more you know is the more you’re worth.” I believe this to be true and I am beyond thankful and excited for this project. I have always wanted to learn how to fix my own cars and now to be a part of something so much bigger is an honor. Bring on the muscle!
