A Team Of Mostly Women Races To Make History At The Indianapolis 500

Wishing good luck to team Paretta Autosport led by Beth Paretta with Simona de Silvestro in the driver seat during bump day at Indy on Sunday! https://www.npr.org/2021/05/21/999087718/a-team-of-mostly-women-races-to-make-history-at-the-indianapolis-500

Over the years, only nine women have driven in the marquee event. But this year, one of 35 teams competing to qualify — including the driver, owner and crew — is made up mostly of women.

Raise your glasses to my beautiful mama. It has been one month since she died and I am just shattered. I miss her every day, and am so grateful for the 87 years she graced this earth with her beautiful smile, charm and silliness. She embraced the unusual and the different people that populated this world and she was kind and open to everyone. She taught me the meaning of having a moral compass, of standing up and speaking out for those who had no voice. She was the original DIYer, raised during the depression when you made everything yourself. God forbid you had to go to the store to buy it! If you did she taught me to make sure it was quality and worth every penny you paid for it because that penny equaled blood sweat and tears. I was raised to be kind and generous and to always give others the benefit of the doubt and every single thing she taught me colors the way I run Gearhead. You get quality and value for your money because it was how I was raised. It is a gift and a legacy and I will honor her spirit, her grace and her unique take on life with every order I pack and every product I release. She called me her Wildflower— she got me as few people ever have. I have always marched to the beat of my own drummer. My husband gets me and my mom adored my husband @cuznbill_tattooer because he too marches to the beat of his own drummer. I would not have stuck with running Gearhead for the last 20 years if it were not for the love and support of these two incredible people. If you have people like this in your life your are rich beyond measure. Make sure to tell them every day how much you love and appreciate them because one day they will be gone. I love you mom, and I will carry on because I have to. I love you Bill, you are my rock. Love always Michelle #gearhead #gearheadrocks #gearheadrecords #gearheadmagazine #gearheadapparel #diy #gonebutneverforgotten #wildflower #marchtothebeatofyourowndrum #love #appreciate #missyou

Named Kookie’s Kar after appearing in “77 Sunset Strip” the legendary ‘31 Ford Model A built by Norm Grabowski went through many iterations before this photo in 2018, courtesy of Mecum Auctions. With its candy-red flames racing across the Rose-pearl body paint, dual super chargers, dual slicks and “Zoomie” exhaust pipes, this t-bucket marvel set the standard for “Live Fast, Be Weird” DIY Kustomizing. #livefastbeweird #diy #kookie #weird #wild #original #hotrod #modelt #mecumauctions #normgrabowski #normgrabowskikookiekar #gearhead #gearheadrocks #gearheadhq #gearheqdmagazine #theweirderthebetter #roadster #kustomkulture

CJ RAMONE "CHRISTMAS LULLABYE"

This song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. It is one of the most wistful melancholy Christmas songs ever. Written and recorded by CJ Ramone (thank you!) for the Gearhead release Rodney on the Rock Presents...Santa's Got a GTO vol. 2 A handful of the full-length album on cherry red vinyl are still available (gearheadhq.com/shop). This song so perfectly fits the mood of this 2020 holiday season. Please be safe folks and tell those close to you how much they mean to you. Much love and respect, Michelle Haunold Lorenz

LIFE: 1957 The hotrodding craze was hitting the mainstream.
Bored teenagers and returning servicemen looking to amp up their lives created a subculture that permeates our current culture. LIFE: 2020 Let me get raw and personal (this is Michelle btw): I am resurfacing from a deep dark depression. Almost a year of death, loss and grief has left me void of the creative juice that usually fuels my daily routine. It seems mundane, even negligent to try to focus on going about life as if everything was ok. But maybe that is exactly the point: maybe we need to focus on things that entertain or soothe or engage us. Maybe it is exactly these actions that keep us moving forward, driving for something better, something healing and uniting. I don’t have the answer but I am trying to find my way through this so for the next few days or weeks, I AM going to share projects, products and images that inspire and excite me. Hopefully it will jumpstart my creative juices again. Be safe and love those around you. Keep the volume up and the rubber on the road, Love Michelle #life #love #grief #loss #gethelp #youarenotalone #community #keeptherubberontheroad

Our Story

Gearhead® Productions, Inc. is a California S Corporation, owned and operated by Rev. Michelle Haunold and guided by a board of directors. Overseeing the entire Gearhead® brand, the company manages the federally registered trademarks, copyrights, and licensing for all the Gearhead® products including a clothing line, a record label, a magazine, digital content and other printed matter. The Gearhead flags logo is recognized internationally as a calling card to all DIYers-- it’s the place to go if you dig underground rock and roll and the ingenuity of American car culture! Gearhead® started as a magazine in 1993, the brainchild of former owner Mike LaVella. The magazine was inspired by the DIY culture around hot rods, custom cars and rock n’ roll. It was an immediate success and the worldwide demand led to the creation of the clothing line shortly after the launch of the magazine. In 2000, the brand expanded to include the record label when Rev. Michelle joined forces. Having met when both were writers for the critically acclaimed punk magazine Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll, the two worked together to release over sixty records as well as a expand the line of clothing and accessories and the continuation of the magazine. Internationally recognized, the distinct logo and products associated with the brand have been sold to over 50 counties. Gearhead® products and music have been featured in major motion pictures, national radio shows, TV shows, advertisements and national magazines, including multiple MTV productions, West Coast Chopper motorcycle events, Rockstar and Sega video games, ads from Airwalk, Vans and Roxy and magazines including Rolling Stone, Spin, Newsweek, Women’s Wear Daily and Alternative Press. The Gearhead® brand continues to grow change and expand, pulling design elements and inspiration from the past but barreling down the road towards the future.
