Bondorella’s Big Adventure

November 3rd, 2016 – Most of you out there┬áhave seen Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, right? If not, seriously, what are you waiting for?? Shockingly, my hubby falls into that latter category. I know, I know… he’s weird. Anyway, if you’re amongst the NORMAL people out there, you’ll remember the scene where Pee Wee visits the…

48 ford f1 with Flathead

Bondorella’s Flathead

My Feller has a saying: “Nobody ever listens to old Brian!” In this case? He was right. I should have listened. When I bought my ’48 Ford in 2006, the truck had a barely running mid-50s OHV6–not the coolest motor. For Christmas that same year, Brian surprised me with a flathead, an early 50s Mercury…

Bondorella on the Road!

SIMI VALLEY, CA – Much as I love them, my spotlight-lovin’ motorcycles have been dominating this blog, but I can’t blame them.

The Dymaxion House (formerly) in Rose Hill, Kansas photo circa. 1949–one of only two prototypes of the R. Buckminster Fuller-designed prefab house, donated in 1991 to the Henry Ford…

Organic Carrots and a Prize!

Easter morning, we were layin’ around be lazy, waitin’ for the Easter Bunny to bring us chocolate (which he never did-the rat!) when Brian read online about a bike/car show at the Irvine Farmer’s Market… and heck… we needed some organic produce anyway, so we rolled out of bed, hopped in Bondorella, and headed to…

Bondorella goes Surfin’!

Every summer when I was a teenager, we’d escape the Arizona heat and spend a couple weeks on the California beaches, and I fell in love, not only with the beauty and the nice cool weather, but with the ocean. I swore when I moved to California someday, I’d learn to surf. I did in…
