The weather was roadster perfect in LA this past weekend and continues today. I am working on the house but my mind is on the roadster. I wish I had it running and on the road. I am determined to install the motor and transmission this week. The weather won’t last so I am planning on doing it tomorrow. I am a long way from starting the engine, but I can at least look at an engine bay that is not empty.
Long Beach was great even though I did not attend I had feedback at the office this morning. Lots of cars and people. I will go at the end of the month to pick up some much needed parts for the roadster. My friend Bob purchased some Drake parts for a good deal and found out he did not need them. I know I have done this many times. Cars that take a long time to finish require duplicate parts (especially cheap ones or good deals).
The GNRS is only a couple of weeks away so I am getting the “Pew Hilton” ready for our annual guests. I look forward to this show and the LARS each year and never tire of the enjoyment it brings me. If you have never been, come on out, the weather is wonderful compared to what I see back East.
Roadster was nice but pricey. I think the economy must improve a little more before buyers step up to $65K cars.[singlepic=3597]
More my speed 4 door sedans are cheap and plentiful at the Long Beach Swap meet. Prices range from $11=20K for these multi-door beauties. Don has a real nice 39 with a 302 and room for the grandkids.[singlepic=3598]
In the preferred parking area you could step up a pay substantially more for a nice 40 coupe. Not much room but really cool to take to breakfast every Tuesday or Toppers.[singlepic=3599]
A regular at all events in SO-CAL this tudor has lots of louvers in the most unusual places.[singlepic=3600]
High dollar Deuce hiboy built by SSR in Huntington Beach. Very nice car in the high end category. I know they cost a lot of money to build but the abundance of these cars keeps prices down.[singlepic=3604]
Interior was distressed leather and had a roll over the back like the real deals. Nicely done.[singlepic=3602]
Standard aftermarket dash, steering wheel and column. This stuff is really nice and works right out of the box. LimeWorks (Steve) knows traditional parts.
This is what I do on Sundays other than watch Arizona put some big numbers on the board. Maybe Pete can do that for Seattle next year.
