Hot rods and custom cars have always represented the independent and rebellious spirit of America. A craze that started not long after WWII when G.I.’s returning home decided to strip down and modify for speed an old jalopy they could pick up for cheap.

It’s a trend that continues to this day and is more popular than ever. Hot Rod Artist Larry Grossman brings this exciting scene to life with his unique and highly detailed pictures in Hot Rods.

June Breeze Jigsaw Puzzle by Jonathan Green

$18.95

Looking as if she is floating in the clouds, a young woman wearing pearls and an expansive woven sun hat is the subject of the original painting, June Breeze, by South Carolina artist Jonathan Green and transformed here into a 1,000-piece June Breeze jigsaw puzzle. The young woman in the painting seems as mysterious as she is elegant. Looking away from the painter toward something only she can see, she wears a white dress with puffed tulle sleeves and a billowing strand of tulle decorates her large woven reed hat. The result is a painting that is both beautiful and enigmatic. Though the expanses of white may make this a more challenging jigsaw puzzle to complete, the result will surely reward the effort in the working of it.

Sailing to the Mark 2023 Wall Calendar

$15.95

How to sail faster than your competitors? How to round the mark first and find a breeze to keep you ahead? On salt water and fresh all around America, sailors are planning strategies to overcome the limits of their waterlines and finesse the right of way to tack ahead of the competition. Andrew Sims and JH Peterson capture the excitement of competitive sailing around the world and bring great races together in Sailing to the Mark.

This 2023 monthly wall calendar features: Large blocks for notes | Superb printing quality | Heavy 100-pound paper | Deluxe 11- by 14-inch size

Races and locations featured in this edition include:
~ The Mississippi River may be frozen in Minnesota, but the lure of sailing brings DN-class boats out on the ice. These single-person “yachts” carry 60 square feet of sail capable of powering these ice rockets to speeds of more than 50 mph.
~ The competition is relentless among Olympic 470-class sailors in Miami, FL. Since it is a one-design boat, teamwork, tactics, and skill make the winning difference.
~ Between the wind and the tide, participants in the J/111 World Championships off Narragansett, RI could not predict the outcome of any race.
~ April sees competitive sail boats from around the world arriving for Charleston Race Week at Charleston, SC, where some 180 boats participate in more than 100 races throughout the week.
~ Still making waves, Freedom, the winner of the 1980 America’s Cup race, is setting her spinnaker during the 2019 World Championships off Newport, RI, where she took sixth place in the Modern Division.
~ As these boats demonstrate on San Francisco Bay during the Rolex Big Boat series at St. Francis Yacht Club, color makes the wind go faster.
~ The VX One-class start is exciting, fast, and wet at Charleston Race Week off Charleston, SC.
~ Light wind demands more sail as these competitors seek an advantage during the 2020 Eggemoggin Reach Regatta on Penobscot Bay in Maine.
~ Hiked out to keep their Lasers going fast during the Olympic Classes Regatta off Miami, FL, these sailors prove they need to be as resilient as their boats.
~ Traffic is heavy in the ORC Class race during the New York Yacht Club’s 175th Anniversary Regatta of Newport, RI.
~ A clutch of boats flies their asymmetric Melges 15s spinnakers during the Winter Series Regatta on Florida’s Sarasota Bay.
~ Framed by the Golden Gate Bridge, Perseverance (sail 216) seems to be falling behind Big Bouys (sail 28447) on a downwind leg of the Rolex Big Boat Series. San Francisco Bay looks windy and cold, though running gives the sun a chance to deliver some warmth to these J/105 sailors.
