Down the rabbit hole!

In the final scene of ‘Straight To Hell’ (1987) - a spoof on the Spaghetti Western genre directed by Alex Cox (Sid & Nancy) - starring Joe Strummer, the phrase “La vida no vale nada” (life is worthless) is scrawled on a silhouette of a bull.

A grim statement, which was taken from a wildly popular 1950’s Musica Ranchera ballad by Jose Alfredo Jimenez about a life worthless if you sit idly by. The song became a 1955 film of the same name.

“I have Mexico in my ears. That’s where it all comes from” said Strummer of his work, who as The Clash was desintegrating, began traveling heavily. Mostly in Spain in a car with a stamp that read “la Vida No Vale Nada”

In the 2014 documentary, ‘I Need A Dodge! Joe Strummer On The Run’, the filmmakers look for his beloved car lost along the way.

Just a little bit of obscure music history tying @cinemeccanica @spaghetti.and.a.western together in a collectible bumper sticker, now available at @via.Meccanica in Joe’s exact scrawl from the film in black and rust (I have yet to come across an image of the original stamp on his car).

Order yours today! 🖤

New in the shop: Amazing hand-knit children’s sweaters by @via.meccanica . Made of super-soft Peruvian wool, each is an homage to iconic figures such as the 1920’s Wall of Death motorcyclist Lillian Lafrance, western queen Dale Evans, king of cool Steve McQueen, and Lee Marvin of “the Wild Ones”. Iconic and classic heirloom sweaters for your special little one!
(And don’t worry, they come in grown-up sizes too- just message her for a custom order!)

“It was the thrill of risking my life that took me to drome riding. I was the girl who flirts with death. From childhood I was inspired by wanderlust. I was always alone, dreaming of adventures– how to ride a pony out West and follow my calling to fame. This was my secret. I shared it with no one.” - Lillian LaFrance, female daredevil, stunt rider and inspiration behind Huxley’s 1st birthday sweater, handmade by @miss1932 for @via.meccanica 🙏🏼😘😘 #thefutureisfemale

I'm looking for socks! I went to the website but couldn't find them. Can you point me at them?
Just want to thank you for the PERFECT restoration you did of my 1970 Norton Commando’s original seat, Corinna. That seat transformed the bike and you have no idea how much happier I am with it now. Your work is the finest I’ve ever seen and working with you is icing on the cake. 5 stars.
I’ve had more than a few seats made by via meccanica and I’ve gotten some bandanas and other little awesome nicknacks. Corinna is a pro and turns raw materials in comfortable works of art. When I need another ass cushion, I know where I’m going to get it. Example A:
Best seat maker I know of. Excellent product from the material used to the stitching. Absolutely no complaints and nothing but praise to you and the wonderful work you do. You can count on recommendations from me, keep up the excellent work.
