I think this day will go down in World history as the day America served justice on the man who declared war on Americans. Â I normally don’t talk about other topics, but this message should be spread throughout the world that American’s can come together and are not afraid of any challenge presented to them. Â We owe a great deal of thanks to our men and women of the armed forces who risked their life’s to protect us. Â Thank You!
The weekend was filled with several car events and warm and windy weather. Â Sandy sent in some nice photos from Seal Beach and Steve took some great shots of the cars at Bakersfield. Â Thanks to both of you for providing the photos for all of us to share. Â I spent the weekend helping the wife do lawn work and watching golf. Â I did manage to pickup my valve covers from P&J and they came out nice. Â I am moving at a snails pace but at least I am up and moving.
This morning I stopped by the “Office” on my way to J&P and Bob came roaring in his red model A coupe with the SHO, DOHC V-6 motor. Â Bob has owned this car for many years but doesn’t drive it very much. Â I have been pushing him to get it running, drive it around town and see what fun he has been missing all these years. Â I bought him coffee for his efforts. Â Driving them is what makes all your effort and money spent seem worthwhile. Â Way to go Bob.
We will be heading to the Bay Area for Mother’s Day and seeing our children. Â I will also be able to attend Brizio’s Shop Party which is always a must attend event for me.
Stripping powder coating from the valve covers was really a big job for me. Â This photo is after two coats of Aircraft stripper.
After two more coats and pressure washing I called P&J and Steve said bring them to him. Â It took him two days in his tank to remove all the red paint.
The final result of the 84 Corvette valve covers looked like this. Â The finish will hold up and last for many years. Â I will add the black breathers and a Pewsplace decal in the circle.
The covers really stands out against the black intake manifold. Â I am still stripping the block for its final black paint. Â I am slow on this process.
Here are two legends of Pasadena holding down the chair space on the Seal Beach Main Street. Â Bumper Iron Bob (on the left) is talking to P-Wood about his recreation of his famous Hot Rod Cover car sedan. Â I can’t wait for the update on the HAMB.
Sid Shavers, Brizio built hiboy, now in LA was looking good at the Seal Beach show. Â The interior is one of Sids greatest efforts to make you feel you were in a Jaguar.
I don’t know this Deuce but the spectator is looking real hard at the engine and his wife is wondering… “what is he looking at?”
Bob and Sandy have a clone of this one for sale but she liked hers better. Â As you know, I love maroon coupes and this one was very nice and only $50K.
This is another profile of the convertible sedan that FJ built. Â I show this one a lot as it is one of my favorites. Â I can have more than one can’t I?
Today’s 3 window…..Dreaming!
Steve has good taste in cars and I really liked the look of this Deuce 3 window. Â I want a louvered trunk lid but I don’t want to paint, sand and rub it out. Â See more tomorrow.
