The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    When life gets heavy and I’m feeling low
    With limited prospects and lack of dough

    When I’m down and out and got no friend
    There are just two things on which I depend

    This steadfast duo is right for the job
    A six-string guitar and a dog named Bob

    When I play a few cords of a Dylan song
    Like a Rolling stone, I can feel no wrong

    Old Bob doesn’t judge me for how I dress
    Or if I’ve made my life a mess

    A pat on the head and a little bit of care
    Is all he needs, I know he’ll be there

    When hard knocks leave me with a bruise
    I cure it when I play the blues

    I don’t suppose I’ll ever have money
    Or live in a land of milk and honey

    I don’t consider myself as poor
    But here’s the thing I know for sure

    With a song in my head and Bob at my side
    Whatever live brings, I’ll take it in stride
