Welcome to Dream Machines 2012 TO OUR FRIENDS, old and new, we say welcome back to our beautiful coastside, thanks for your support, and have a most wonderful time here. We’re delighted to be presenting our 22nd annual show, this year expanding it to two days, and proud to say it keeps getting bigger and better every year. The show is not only fun for exhibitors and spectators, it also benefits the functionally disabled members of our community; and for that we again say, thank you. Each year the Coastside Adult Day Health Center uses all the proceeds to preserve existing programs and, in some cases, to establish new ones. All the volunteers hope you enjoy this year’s show. Please tell your friends about it and join us every year on the last weekend of April. Drive Safely, Bob Senz, Show Founder Chad Hooker, Show Chairman Bob Pelikan, Show Co-Chairman To our volunteers: On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, and most importantly, participants of the Coastside Adult Day Health Center, thank you for volunteering your time during the Pacific Coast Dream Machines. This event is a critical source of funds to support our program costs. It is because of people like you, our volunteers, that this event is such a remarkable success. The costs of providing our participants with the real needs they require to maintain optimum independence, are more than most can afford to pay. The profits from this event provide us with the means to assist those participants that need it, keeping them close to family and friends and in the community many of them helped to build. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Janie Bono, CADHC Executive Director Thank you: CADHCgratefullyacknowledgesthesupportandleadershipofshowFounderandVisionary Bob Senz, Chairman Chad Hooker, Co-Chairman Bob Pelikan and all of the dedicated volunteers, participants, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees.

Demolition Derby to make smashing debut at dream machines
ehind the wheel of a car, most of us work hard to avoid getting into an accident. But in the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show’s newest event –– the inaugural Dream Machines ChampionshipDemolitionDerby to be held on Saturday, April 28 at 1 p.m. –– crashing and destruction is the point. In fact, the bigger, the badder, the better. "I'm putting on over 40 Demolition Derby events across the state this year," says Demolition Derby organizer Fran Holland of Holland Racing Promotions, who, with her late husband, has been participating in, as well as organizing derbies for over four decades. A self-described tomboy, Holland says demolition derbies –– think of ancient gladiators, but with cars –– attract fans and contestants from all walks of life. "There's definitely a stereotype," she acknowledges, "but like most stereotypes, you shouldn't make assumptions. I've had drivers of every kind, from mechanics and car buffs, to lawyers and judges. And you might think it's really a guy's event, but we get women drivers, too." The history of the demolition derby is unclear. Some suggest it has been a crowd pleaser at county fairs and other rural events as far back as The Great Depression. But all agree that demolition derbies really took hold of the public's imagination in the 1950s and '60s. The sport gained even more notoriety in the 1970s, mostly thanks to the popular ABC show, Happy Days. It was there that handsome biker-with-a-heart-of-gold, Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli, fell in love with Pinky Tuscadero, a beauty who made a beastly living as a professional demolition derby driver.
DEMOLITION DERBY DETAILS The Demolition Derby will take place at 1 pm on Saturday, April 28 at the Pacific Coast DreamMachinesShowheldonthegroundsofHalf MoonBayAirport,9850N.CabrilloHighway,one Highway 1 about 5 miles north of Highway 92. Holland Racing Promotions officials encourage plenty of ramming and crashing. “The drivers who do not“mix it up”, that linger in the background and do little hitting, will not be scored. Aggressiveness is a must,”stated Derby organizer, Fran Holland. Thisshowisgoodfamilyentertainment––young andoldjoininthescreamingandhowlingfortheir favorite drivers.

The optimal vehicle for destruction is one of the massive sedans or station wagons American car makers were known for in the '60s and '70s. Drivers find these vehicles of yesteryear through private sellers or at junkyards, and pay an average of $500 or less. The cars are then stripped of all interior fixtures, trim, plastic, lights, and glass. After some safety modifications, they are then often spray painted, usually in garish colors designed to make the car stand out in the crowd--and capture the fans' attention. One item guaranteed to also capture some attention at the Demolition Derby –– the first in Pacific Coast Dream Machines Shows’ twenty two year history –– is the prize winning purse. "There's a $5000 purse," says Holland, "with $3000 going to the lucky winner. It's going to a great event, and we're even expecting to see some locals in the event." Organized in heats and scored on the quality of each hit, drivers stand to gain a lot for competing with a car that is basically worthless in any other market. DREAM MACHINES 2012 7

The P-51 Mustang was America’s premier fighter in World War II.
“Mustang Madness” Impressive Array of America’s Premier World War II Fighters
ircraft display coordinator Eddie Andreini Jr. is excited to bring “Mustang Madness”, a spectacular array of P-51s to this year’s Pacific Coast Dream Machines, April 28-29 at Half Moon Bay Airport. “We’ll have more P-51 Mustangs on display than you see at Mustang-specific shows,” says Andreini, son of legendary aerobatics pilot Eddie Andreini of Half Moon Bay. The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seatfighterandfighter-bomberused during World War II, the Korean War and several other conflicts. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy aircraft shot down, second only to the Grumman F6F Hellcat among Allied aircraft. The Mustang used a common, reliable engine and had internal space for a huge fuel load. With external fuel tanks, it could accompany the bombers all the way to Germany and back. EnoughP-51sbecameavailabletothe8th and 9th Air Forces in the winter of 1943–44. When the Pointblank offensive resumed in early 1944, matters changed dramatically. The P-51 proved perfect for escorting bombers all the way to the deepest targets. The Eighth Air Force began to switch its fighter groups to the Mustang, first exchangingarrivingP-47groupsforthoseof the 9th Air Force using P-51s, then gradually converting its Thunderbolt and Lightning groups. The defense was initially layered, using the shorter range P-38s and P-47s to escort

the bombers during the initial stages of the raid and then handing over to the P-51 when they turned for home. By the end of 1944, 14 of its 15 groups flew the Mustang. In early 1944, General James Doolittle told his fighters to stop flying in formation with the bombers and instead attack the Luftwaffe wherever it could be found. The Mustang groups were sent in before the bombers and could hunt the German fighters while they were forming up. The results were astonishing; in a short period of just over a week, the Luftwaffe lost 17% of its fighter pilots. As Doolittle later noted, “Adolf Galland said that the day we took our fighters off the bombers and put them against the German fighters, that is, went from defensive to offensive, Germany lost the air war.” Despite the advent of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with some air forces until the early 1980s. After World War II and the Korean War, many Mustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing.

“Big Bertha”, one of the extreme, mega-modified machines by the fabulously creative Blastolene Brothers
Blastolene Brotherhood: No Limits When It Comes to Creativity T
he distinguished Yale lecturer William Lyon Phelps once said that assumptions should be thrown out about every three weeks. But for the madmen who design out-of-this-world vehicles under the proud moniker of "Blastolene Brothers," Phelps didn't go quite far enough. "Assumptions,"saysBlastoleneaficionado Michael Leeds, "have to be tossed out every day.You think of the craziest design you can. And then you take it even further. If you're one of the Blastolene Brothers, there are no assumptions, no limits." Case in point: "Big Bertha," a monster of a concept car that Leeds designed and built from the ground up. Part race car, part muscle car, and part Bat Mobile, Big Bertha will be showcased at this year's Pacific Coast Dream Machines, April 2829 at Half Moon Bay Airport, alongside "Blown Ranger." Crafted from one fluid piece of sheet metal and powered by a 1942 Fairchild jet engine, "Ranger" is just the latest in Leeds' street-legal stable of moveable art. More a way of life than an actual organization, the Blastolene Brothers are loosely made up of mechanics, artists, and designers Leeds has met at both art shows and car shows. The group includes people like Los Angeles artist Baron Margo,whoseshowcasevehiclecombines roadster elegance with an updated sense
of "Lost in Space. Another sculptor, Michael Cooper, took his talent from the art studio to the garage when he combined a 1933 Ford truck, a blown 353 cubic inch Chevy small block engine, and a whole lot of imagination to create "The Tubester." Then there's Arizona's Rodney Rucker, a man who sees potential in every vehicle he comes across. This includes an authentic stage coach that he motorized and drives from the same seat where, a hundred years ago, the driver held reins and horse power came from actual horses. Leeds says he and his fellow Blastolene Brothers are grateful they get to follow their dreams--and are conscientious about their part on the planet. "I've converted Big Bertha from regular gastopropane,andplantodothesamewith Blown Ranger. It's a good first step," he says. "We are all looking for the next innovations to make our cars environmentally friendly. That's going to be a huge part of where I go with upcoming projects." Leeds has no doubt that the American car-driving future will include "sustainable" vehicles that will not only look beautiful, but also perform to top standards. "We can figure this out," he insists. "Throw away the assumptions, and take the borders off our thinking." In other words, think "the Blastolene way."

Dez Molnar’s one-of-a-kind, space-age Gyrocycle is the world’s first flying motorcycle.
“Hybrid” Gets New Meaning with Space-Age Gyrocycle D
ezso Molnar seems to have done it all: he's built rockets, flown jets in the US Air Force, rocked out in bands, and invented a music toy for Mattel. He judged the X-Prize, designed lunar robots, restored a rocket car, and helped lead the U.S. assault on the land speed record. The passion he's currently absorbed by is his gyroplane motorcycle, also known as the "gyrocycle,”an enclosed motorcycle that's built to soar. Exotic and elegant, Molnar's hybrid vehicle is one part Evel Knievel, one part George Jetson, and one part George Lucas. And a whole lot of Molnar's vision. "I'd lost friends and family in motorcycle accidents, so I stayed away from riding," Molnar explains. "Racing bicycles and the crashes that came with it gave me respect for high speeds on 2 wheels. But for this project, I had to become a rider to truly understand the challenges motorcyclists face in city conditions and long trips." To that end, Molnar rode across the United States. What he learned on that trip helped him design a personal aircraft that uses a motorcycle engine for propulsion, and gyrocopter rotor blades
for lift. And it's street-legal. The single-seat Molnari GT prototype completed road and flight testing in 2006. For the past year, it has been showcased at the Florida Air Museum. "I'm bringing the GT to the west coast for air show season," says Molnar, who admits to a zeal for sharing his invention with the fellow "gear heads" he'll meet at Dream Machines. "The new 2 seat gyrocycle is currently getting its propeller and blades fitted. After the last series of test drives, I have a firm belief that it is a better cross country machine than the production street bikes available to the general public." To that end, Molnar plans to use it personally for long trips. In the meantime, his mind appears to be constantly clicking, looking for the critical innovations that will give the gyrocycle consistent air time. "I was thrilled with the local test flights we did" Molnar says of the video posted to his website at www.molnari.com. "And now it's time to leave the lab and take some voyages." Given all he's accomplished so far, one ought not to discount his perseverance. "I'll get there," he promises. "And have a great time along the way.”

The Bleriot made fame as the first across to fly across the English Channel
Made History as the First Aircraft to Fly Across the English Channel
ric Preston’s rare antique plane, a 1909 Blériot XI, is sure to be a showstopper at this year's Pacific Coast Dream Machines, April 28-29 at Half Moon Bay Airport. The Blériot XI is the aircraft that was used by Louis Blériot on July 25,1909, to make the first flight across the English Channel made in a heavier-than-air aircraft. This achievement is one of the most famous accomplishments of the early years of aviation, and not only won Blériot a lasting place in history but also assured the future of his aircraft manufacturing business. The event caused a major reappraisal of the importance of aviation; the English newspaper, The Daily Express led its story of the flight with the headline, "Britain is no longer an Island". The Blériot XI, designed by Raymond Saulnier, was a monoplane, with a partially covered box-girder fuselage built from ash with wire cross bracing. The principal differences were the use of wing-warping for lateral control, and the tailplane,whichhadasmallbalancedrudder and a single rectangular horizontal tailplane withtip-mountedelevatorsmountedunder the lower longerons of the fuselage. Like its predecessor, the bracing and warping wires were attached to a cabane structure made of steel tubing above the fuselage and an inverted pyramid, also of steel tubing, below it. When first built, a small teardrop-shaped fin was mounted on the cabane, but this was later removed. The main undercarriage was also like that of the Type VIII, the wheels being mounted in castering trailing arms which could slide up and down steel tubes, the movement

being sprung by bungee cords. Thissimpleandingenuousdesignallowed crosswind landings with less risk of damage. When shown at the Paris Aero Salon in December 1908, the aircraft was powered by a 35 hp (26 kW) 7-cylinder R.E.P. engine driving a four-bladed paddle type propeller, but this engine proved extremely unreliable and, at the suggestion of his mechanic Ferdinand Collin, Blériot made contact with Alexandre Anzani, a famous motorcycle racer whose successes were due to the engines which he manufactured, and who hadrecentlyenteredthefieldofaero-engine manufacture. On 27 May 1909, the 25 horsepower (19 KW) Anzani 3-cylinder engine, produced in fan or semi-radial configurations, was fitted. The propeller was also replaced with a Chauvière two-bladedpropellermadefrom laminated walnut wood.

“Dream Cycles” Debuts:
A Showcase of the World’s Finest Custom Bicycles
aybe yours was one of the millions of parents who, at one time or another, shook their heads and bemoaned,“What were you thinking?”You weren’t, of course. So they then slammed you with, “Do you want to end up with a life behind bars? Well, do you?” In the case of Dominick Guida and Boogie Breiz of Behind Bars, Inc., the answer is definitive: “Uh. Yeah!!!” Because the bars they’re behind are mounted to a bicycle, the purest form of mobility, and, for many of us, our first, glorious taste of freedom. “For us, Behind Bars, Inc., is a dream come true,” explained Dominick, co-founder of the decade-old business where he and Boogie build, refurbish, customize bikes and host the largest bicycle show on the West Coast. “We have also built anddonatedcustombicyclestoauctionoffintheassistanceof raising funds and awareness for various causes.” Bicycle enthusiasts since childhood, the two first met ten years ago through a mutual friend. Each recognized in the other a passion for restoring and customizing bikes. A business was born. “Our most recent collaboration involves Chris Coddington; son of Legendary Hot Rod builder and designer, Boyd Coddington. Chris owns and operates Hot Rods by Boyd; a company dedicated to keeping Boyd’s legacy alive. For this collaboration we have created a limited series of hand-built custom cruisers that host styling cues inspired by Boyd Coddington,” said Boogie. “We had a lady who wanted to restore a vintage cruiser for her mom to ride up and down the beach,” Dominick said. “We did a lot to the bike, but the result is very simple, with beautiful powder coating, and a basket on the front. It came out, if I do say so myself, just perfect, very nostalgic.” Behind Bars Inc. is ready to “blow people away” with a showcase of award-winning, customized bicycles as they debut “Dream Cycles” at this year’s Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, April 28-29 at Half Moon Bay Airport. “We are really excited to be part of Dream Machines,” Dominick said.“This is another avenue for us to put the word out that cycling is a very cool part of the world of machines and vehicles.” To find out more about Behind Bars, check out www. behindbarsinc.com/

The fascinating concept of unimotorcycle racing is to travel, from a standing stop, 100-feet on one wheel with the winner determined by fastest time.
Unimotorcycle Racing: A Singular Dream Machines Sensation
hat crazy man concocted the sport of unimotorcycle racing? Legend has it that these two motorcycleridingbuddieswalkedintoabar in Daytona Beach, Florida. After a couple of brewskis, one guy turns to the other. His voice full of despair, he says,“You know, I’ve racedfour-wheeledvehicles,three-wheeled vehicles, and two-wheeled vehicles. What’s left?” It may sound like the beginning of a good joke. But in the late 1980s, that’s exactly how the sport of unimotorcycle racing got started. That night, the gang at the bar filled several cocktail napkins with sketches, scribblingsandideasthatofficiallylaunched the Unimotorcycle Racing phenomenon. Several years ago, Moss Beach resident Jim Holsman attended the Unimotorcycle Racing World Championship in Holland. Holsmanwashooked.Hewasdeterminedto help spread the word about unimotorcycle racing and helped make it a popular part of the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show. “There’s nothing quite like unimotorcycle racing,” said Holsman with a twinkle in his eye.“It’s great to see the passion people have for it.” The concept of unimotorcycle racing is to travel, from a standing stop, 100-feet on one wheelwiththewinnerdeterminedbyfastest time. Races are held on dirt to minimize the injuries from the crashes that may occur. Unicycles in competition are limited to 4’ in width and 8’ in length. Fans can check out the action at this year’s Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, April 28-29 at Half Moon Bay Airport (the unimotorcycle racing will be held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on April 29 only). “It’s very big in Europe with the Germans, Belgians, and Dutch,” explains
Unimotorcycle Racing heats will be heldat11a.m.,1p.m.,and3p.monSunday, April29.Forinquiriesandentryinformation, call Jim Holsman at 650-712-0100.
unimotorcycle devotee Thomas Ingraham, a resident of El Granada, and co-organizer with Holsman of the races at the Dream Machines Show. “Here, the sport is a little more organic.” Unimotorcycle racing is the grown-up version of popping a wheelie on your favorite childhood bike. Picture the usual motorcycle: then take away the front wheel, add some modifications for speed, a few more for safety and stability, maybe a few bells and whistles for some pizzazz, and ... you’re off! “You’re up on the back tire during the duration of the race, so obviously, there’s no steering,” says Ingraham of the straight track. “And these things really move. The fastest guy has done 100 feet in 2.5 seconds.” Speed is, of course, the primary reason people love the sport. But for Ingraham, there’s a second component -- the camaraderie that occurs when a team of guys get together, sharing all they know about physics, geometry, and good, oldfashioned mechanics to build a winning bike. “There will be about five or six teams from throughout the Bay Area competing at the Dream Machines Show,” he says. “We all know each other. We all share knowledge and swap parts. Don’t get me wrong; each of us wants to win. But we’re also great friends trying to promote a really unique sport and have a good time while doing it.”

hePacificCoastDreamMachinesismorethananextravaganza foranyonewholovesthespectacleofmotorizedpower.It’salso aboontooneofthearea’struetreasures—theCoastsideAdult Day Health Center. Dream Machines is always the largest fundraiser of the year for the CADHC, which simply could not do the things it does without private support. Open since 1982, the center at 645 Correas St. in Half Moon Bay helps provide independent, safe, quality living for the Coastside’s frail elderly and disabled adults. The center also provides crucial services for caregivers who can be overwhelmed by the experience. CADHC offers a daily program of activities and a variety of health services operated by a team of professionals and program aides. For instance, there is an Alzheimers program even a regular “Alzheimers Café” that gives those with dementia and other memory ailments a coffee shop-like environment in which to interact with others. The CADHC works in cooperation with the participants, their caregivers and personal physicians in an atmosphere that is both caring and supportive. Other services include nursing and personal care, medication monitoring, speech, occupational and physical therapy, social services, nutritious meals, fun activities, and door-todoor wheel chair assisted transportation. The goal is to restore and maintain physical and mental health so participants can remain in their own homes, close to family and friends in the community they helped build. Providing such services is never easy and that is particularly true in an economic downturn. The center has several sources of funding, including private foundations, the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee, the United Way and the San Mateo County Aging and Adult Services Department. The center also benefits from generous donations to its endowment fund. TolearnmoreabouttheCADHC,contactexecutivedirectorJanie Bono at 726-5067 or visit www.coastsideadultdayhealth.org.

Music Lineup To Rival the World-Class Machines
ith a backdrop of the world’s coolest cars, some of the biggest names on the Bay Area music scene are heading down to Half Moon Bay Airport for the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, April 28-29. “We’ve put together a fantastic music lineup that will rival the quality of the world-class machines on display,” said entertainment director Grant Walters, a longtime supporter of the event beneficiary, the Coastside Adult Day Health Center. Kicking things off will be the 2nd Annual “Festival of West Coast Blues”hosted by the Stan Erhart Band with renowned sax player Nancy Wright and special guests Wendy DeWitt, “the Queen of boogie woogie piano” and Kirk Harwood, winners of the Golden Gate Blues Society International Blues Challenge, and Grant Walters on harmonica. The “Festival of West Coast Blues” is supportedbytheGoldenGateBluesSociety. “Festival of West Coast Blues” runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Then, get ready for The Inciters, the West Coast’s premier 60’s Soul Band, who recently released “Soul Clap”, their new album on Jump Up Records. Wielding drums, bass, guitars, a full horn section, and strong female vocal section. The Inciters perform from 1 to 4 pm. On Sunday,The Seducers with pedal steel master Joe Goldmark bring their trademark country western sound to the stage, kicking things off at 10 a.m. Joe Goldmark used to be a member of the almost-legendary Twangbangers (that included guitar hero Redd Volkaert) and since leaving that ensemble has released five albums of pedal steel goodness. The Seducers perform from 10 a.m. to 1 pm. Then comes the headliner, Curtis Salgado, World Renowned R&B Vocalist and Harmonica Master and BMA Soul/Blues Male Artist of the Year in 2010. Salgado effortlessly mixes blues, funk and R&B with a delivery that is raw and heartfelt.

He moves with ease from the tenderest ballads to the most full-throated stompers. Blues Revue says, “Salgado is one of the most down-to-earth, soulful, honest singers ever, and his harmonica work is smoking and thoroughly invigorating ... rollicking, funky and electrifying.” Aside from being a tremendous vocalist, Curtis is one of the finest blues harmonica players in the world. In 1979, when John Belushi was in Eugene filming Animal House, he caught Curtis’ act and liked what he heard and saw. Curtis took the actor under his wing and schooled him on blues and R&B history, which Belushi soaked up like a sponge, and used a good portion of Curtis’ show as the basis for the Blues Brothers act he and Dan Akroyd put together. The first Blues Brothers album was dedicated to Curtis. Salgado performs from 1 p.m. to 4 pm.
