Coop Scores Speed Parts

Mister Cooper got lucky on a trip to a guy's garage to pick up some new wheels for his Falcon. Besides the aformentioned rolling stock, the famed artist let go of a few more dollars from his Cooply stash, heading home with a vintage Vertex Mag, a classic Edelbrock X-C8 cross-ram intake complete with dual Carters and a… » 8/02/07 9:00pm 8/02/07 9:00pm

Coop Hits the Swap Meet

The one and only Mister Cooper got together with Señor Jalopy and belly-tank Bobby to hit a Model T swap meet in the fine city of Long Beach. As one of the few art critics Los Jalops intrinsically respect — as he himself has a bit of the old artist in him — we dig the man's take on the inherent majesty of the layout… » 7/27/07 9:45pm 7/27/07 9:45pm

Coop Takes a Hooptyride

Given that the august Mister Jalopy hasn't seen fit to update his marvelous catalogue of wonderous things in over a month, Coop hopped in his new Falcon (the wagon is sadly still in a lawyer-induced state of disrepair) and went to check out the goings on at Hooptyrides, Inc. Also, one post down, he details an encounter » 7/19/07 7:00pm 7/19/07 7:00pm

Yes, Please Lick the Plug: Coop's 78-Foot Painting

Coop is not a man to be understimated. He not only paints pictures just shy of 80 feet, they also happen to feature spark-plug-licking females illustrated in his inimitable, sexy style. Pop by his flickr page and check out the genesis of this bechwheemouth of rad-ass art. Also, check out his Kimberly Kane stuff,… » 5/21/07 8:00pm 5/21/07 8:00pm

Coop Felled by Lawyer!

Poor Coop. His recently-purchased Ford Falcon wagon was uncerimoniously crumped by a legal eagle sipping a caffeinated beverage and making an illegal left turn. Mister Cooper's laid up with a busted leg and the front end of his fresh garage-saling ride is ailing in a way that isn't just gonna buff right out. We wish… » 5/08/07 2:00pm 5/08/07 2:00pm

Forget it Coop, It's Chinatown

Somehow, we imagine Coop walking out of the Los Angeles City Jail in a cream suit and watching fedora with a brown band, sauntering down the steps and stepping into his Model A hot rod. Just then, his phone rings. A voice on the other end of the line asks, "Are you alone, Mr. Cooper?" » 4/13/07 12:15am 4/13/07 12:15am

I Wanna See Some History! Coop's New Tackle Box

This has absolutely nothing to do with cars. Unless it does. Which it does. So it does. While garage-saling, Coop picked up a tackle box once owned by one Harold Underhill, replete with a collection of lures, as well as Harold's fishing license from 1959. For petrolheads of a certain age, this will immediately invoke… » 3/28/07 11:45pm 3/28/07 11:45pm

He Brakes For Nobody: Coop's New Wheels

Apparently dissatisfied with his Model A's garage-sale-booty carrying capacity, Archduke Franz Coopinand requisitioned this '65 Falcon from fellow artist Keith Weesner. It's got a warm three-hundred-two inches of Ford Windsor under the hood and front disc brakes. He's threatening to install a slot car track in the… » 3/04/07 1:45pm 3/04/07 1:45pm

The Future is Then: Coop on Decals

Pal-O-Tha Jalop Mike LaVella once said, "For some reason, and I'm not exactly sure why, American Culture seemed to peak around 1963." We'd be more likely to say '68, but we do understand LaVella's argument for '63. Regardless, the 1960s were simply an incredible time for design and popular art in this country; we… » 3/01/07 4:00pm 3/01/07 4:00pm

It Was The Time of the Vanner, In The Year of '71

Over at the blog which indexes all positive apes, the Inimitable Mister Cooper posted an incredibly boss ad for a custom Dodge van. Unfortunately, it was not safe for work, so we passed on passing it off as our own discovery. But when the boss isn't looking, click over and check it. Meanwhile, Coop's post pointed us… » 2/22/07 3:45pm 2/22/07 3:45pm

Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue: Coop Goes Model-Crazy

A certain Mister Cooper indulged his Gasser fantasies lately in molded-plastic form, whipping up a '63 Pontiac Tempest, a '37 Chevy, and a Ford Cammer-powered Willys panel truck. Now and then, a sophisticated man of the arts and letters likes to take a break from dosing himself with cadmium, settle down at the desk… » 2/19/07 8:30pm 2/19/07 8:30pm

22 Pomona Avenue: Horrific Hot Rod

The builder left alone. His mind was blank. He needed time to sleep; to get the memories from his mind. This much is obvious, but you really just have to go look for yourself. The only thing we could possibly say about this hot rod pickup from the Grand National Roadster Show that Coop didn't is that if there is any… » 2/03/07 7:45pm 2/03/07 7:45pm
