I arose real early, 4:00 am and slipped into my truck and headed for the Long Beach Swap meet. The weatherman had predicted rain, so I did not know what to expect. Bob and I stopped for coffee and headed South. Surprisingly Long Beach was nice and full of vendors. I guess the Christmas season brings out the swappers on both sides of the fence. Walking through the aisles we didn’t see much related to old Fords. Lots of Chevy stuff for sale, but very little early Ford anything. I did manage to find some button head stainless bolts for the roadster, but not much else. Bob found some stainless steel gas tanks for his new roadster, so the day was not lost. I don’t think I will go again until January. Ebay provides all the early Ford parts I need, I just do like the bidding process or the 7 day wait.
Bad day for CAl, UCLA & Ohio. Football fans will know what I mean.
This one has been sold. Long time for sale, but a very nice car is going to a good home. I like this car.[singlepic=566]
My favorite view…QC and A spring! Bumpy ride for sure.[singlepic=567]
40 Delivery with the salt flat look. This one is on Jalopy Journal for $21K[singlepic=568]
I always wondered what a 34 hiboy sedan would look like. I like this chopped version from NAPA. Jalopy Journal Photo.[singlepic=569]
32 chopped tudor at Moorepark. Old time hot rod. We need more of these and less resto rods. Chopped about 4 inches and cracked lacquer paint I presume.[singlepic=570]
The A pillar has been leaned back rather than splice the top. Do you like it?[singlepic=571]
Bob’s very, very nice 40 standard coupe built by Gary Monnich in Sonoma. Crowds around this one all day.[singlepic=572]
Rear view of the Cloud mist Gray 40 standard. The car has buggy springs, 327/350, 8 inch Ford and quiet mufflers. NICE![singlepic=573]
Beautiful stock standard dash and interior. This is the way to do one for the V8 Club lover.
Beautiful fresh full fendered Deuce at Moorepark. Big wheels and slick black paint. Do you think the demand will ever end for these car? One is being built everyday and faster than Henry made them.
