Toppers Tuesday

I just returned from the city by the Bay and had a wonderful time. San Francisco always is an exciting place to visit. I lived there for several years and still miss the uniqueness of the city. The weather was perfect and the trip was non-exhausting. I attended the Rod and Custom Show at the Cow Palace and it was a complete waste of my time except for the Brizio exhibit. Roy, as usual, had some very nice cars on display. I need to learn how to shoot photos with florescent lighting as my pictures did not turn out very good. I need that SLR camera with all the settings. The wife reads this so maybe a hint for my birthday.

I also visited my friend, Tom Walsh and looked over his latest project. Tom is a prolific builder and is completing a 1940 Ford coupe that is stunning to say the least. This is the nicest coupe I have seen in a long time. I add Tom to the list of Tim and Gary who also put together some beautiful 40 coupes. Tom built a beautiful 40 Convertible a few years ago and let it get away, so this is the replacement.

Tom has a garage next to his house that any Hot Rodder would love to have. I have known him for over 20 years and he continually upgrades his garage. I have included some pictures for you to see. We should all be able to get up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and walk a few steps into paradise.

More on Tom’s Garage tomorrow.

Stay Tooned!

The reason for the trip, my daughter and me at my son’s Art Show in SF.  The joy of my life Chris and Sarah.  She looks like me, good looking!

A portion of Tom’s immaculate garage. Tools are his specialty. This is just one side of the garage.

Tom’s Bonneville record holder. Just in case he gets bored with his other 12 cars.

Roy Brizio booth at the Cow Palace. Very well executed 34 Phaeton for a long time Hot Rodder from the Bay area. This car used to be blue and the owner was a member of the San Jose Roadsters. (Poor pictures. Maybe the operator not the camera.)

Roy had several cars with the Resto-Rod look. Woodgrain dash, Sids interior and all blended together in a perfect Brizio/Shavers style. This was my favorite car at the show.
