We have just finished our second in-house 32 Ford chassis and have a 34 ford chassis coming off the frame table soon. You can check out the 32 on our Clients Rides page. We will be selling them for $9,995.00 less wheels. They have Pete & Jakes suspensions and Moser 9" rear housings, call the shop for more info. We also finished installing our new louver press last week and are now doing 3 and 4 inch louvers starting at $5.00 per hole you can also check them out on the Clients Rides page. Check back soon for more updates as I am going to try to keep up a little more than I have been. See ya'll around, Jody

It's hard to believe, but here we are already in 2012, and the start of the spring car show season here in Houston and around Texas.  The shop is buzzing with clients projects, everything from a/c installations, and suspension upgrades to custom fabrication and new power plants.  But there is also something else being built here, our own 1932 highboy roadster, which we are trying our darnedest to complete for the Spring Lone Star Nationals in April too.

The progress on the Duke's Speed Masters '32 roadster is clipping right along, and it will be a race so to speak, but isn't that what Hot Rodding is all about? Here are a few progress pictures I thought you might enjoy.  Swing by the shop and check it our and of course you can check back in our Gallery for progress pictures.

Duke and Kevin Tetz at Houston AutoRamaThis last Thanksgiving weekend Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center, hosted the 51st Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts AutoRama featuring some of the most impressive Muscle Cars, Hot Rods and Performance Houston has to offer. The Houston show has long been know as one of AutoRamas biggest show, buy attendance it is the forth largest in the country. It is an easy to use this show as an indicator of the health of the Custom and Performance automotive community locally.  With the number of cars displayed for the 2010 AutoRama show being estimated to be around 800 cars, this looks to be the best show turn out in years.

When Chris Satterwhite's beautiful 1937 Chevy truck  won best in class for Modified Street Rod Pick-up, we had an opportunity to talking with Kevin Tetz from Spiketv’s Trucks.  Kevin pointed out the high quality and the quantity of our local cars, something all of us should be proud of. (See Chris' truck this month as our featured ride) Kevin also pointed out the local craftsmanship is here in Houston too, as seen in Chris' truck and especially the custom one of a kind stainless grill Bob created here at Dukes.

 We are seeing more people getting re-involved again on a local level too. As a community it is important for all of us to keep this momentum going.  I would like to challenge all of you to join a local car club this year if you haven't, to attend local car shows and cruse night when you can, and most importantly get our youth involved by taking kids to car shows cruses and club meets.

Here, at Duke's Speed Masters we will share our thoughts on the world, of Hot Rodding, Muscle Cars, Classic Cars,  Custom Trucks  and more. The Dukes’s blog is a very personal extension of the business that we run. This is where each member of our staff will have the chance to talk about what they find exciting or special in the world of automotive restoration and customization . We will discuss upcoming events and any new and fantastic vechicles that have come our way. I have always found the little told stories to be the most interesting and the most helpful. We hope that the little tid-bits here will become a source of great pleasure for you as well us for us.
