Early V8 Wednesday

Many of my friends left the LARS and headed to Lake Tahoe to attend the 50th anniversary of the Early Ford V8 Club. Prior to being a hot rod lover, I really enjoyed the fully restored Ford V8’s. I was an active member for many years and attended many meets across the country. I used to spend lots of time searching for Deuce parts for my cars and have fond memories of the finding the hard to locate part such as a three window ash tray. One of my friends, George, is still a Deuce lover and collector of parts. He first drove his roadster around Lake Tahoe in 1970 at the EF National Meet. He is doing it again this week in the same roadster. George has cherished his collection of Deuces and will probably be one of the only ones who is driving their same car. His car has a dropped axle and later flathead but still is fairly close to original. Today is the big show and I hope he receives some kind of recognition for his efforts.

The car lag is still with me today as I try to remember all of the nice roadsters I saw at this years LARS. I have my favorites and of course meeting many of you for the first time is very special to me. I hear from hot rodder’s all over the world and that is my inspiration for continuing Pewsplace. If I can bring you closer to the event or activity I have accomplished my goal. I am always glad to hear from you and see photos of your cars. Please continue to send them to me.

Some of you asked about the prices of cars at this years LARS. I was involved in a few transactions, but in general prices for excellent built cars were on the high side ($75K and up) and I think some of them sold on Saturday. The show is known for well qualified buyers and asking prices are usually above market. If you are selling a Deuce roadster, the supply is much greater than the demand which means the prices drop on Sunday. I saw several Deuces in the $30-35K range and some in the $100+ range. Normally, persons buying a car in the 6 figure bracket, prefer to build their own but not all of them. Pro built roadsters can run $150 — 200K real easy so you can buy a used one for a considerable savings. If you just want to have fun and drive one stay with the lower priced cars of good quality.

Have a great week and remember Sunday is 40 Ford Day at LaPalma Park. I won’t be there this year due to family obligations.

Stay Tooned!


George is driving the scenic Lake Tahoe area in his primo Deuce roadster from 1970. He loves General Jumbo wheels.

Troy Williams had a very nice Kennedy built roadster for sale ($68K) at the show. He still has most of his father’s cars and had some on display.

Steve had his 40 convert for sale ($40K) and I did not see it on Saturday so I presume he sold the car on Friday. There were several nice 40 converts for sale in the $25-55K range.

The top on this roadster was made from a wire form as you can see from the photos. Lobeck would have loved the ET’s on this one.

Don had his fresh roadster for sale for $50K. He had his usual touches in design that few can duplicate. He sure has the eye for the early look in hot rods.

Dick and his buddies from the St. Louis area were on hand at this years show. Dick added the fenders to his long time hiboy and headed west.

Don drove along with the group in his famous roadster. I didn’t see Gary and his car but maybe he came with Don.

This rare 32 RPU was parked across from me in the Specialty Parking area. It seems roadsters were parked everywhere during the weekend as they were the reason for the show.

The trio was parked in the shade. Ed, Ron and Bob have some real nice roadsters. Ed’s is relatively new while the other two have been done since the 80’s.

Rich drove his fresh DD out for the day and showed me all the neat features he has incorporated into his build.

A long time in the making, Ed’s 29 is a work of art thanks to a host of top craftsman on the West coast including Roy Brizio.

Pete and Rick had the clone of their famous cover car on display in their space. The workmanship is first class and I am happy to see them build a duplicate using the original chassis.

JR just traded his nice truck for this 40 standard and has given the car his famous fathers look in just a few months. Nice work John.

Standard dash’s were not woodgrained but should have been when they look this nice. Window moldings were done in a matching style. Cory in MI would like this one.

Saturday’s Highlight!

The Kennedy Boys just finished this one for Bob and I fell in love for the second time this weekend. Bob has an extensive collection of cars but always leans toward the true hot rod look in his builds. That is Chuck’s CMG 40 standard parked next to Bob.

    Crypto was the last missing component of the metaverse. Crypto introduced the idea of digital scarcity, which enables digital ownership. Many components of crypto will play pivotal parts in the metaverse. Decentraland is a Metaverse platform where users can develop and monetize content and apps in 3D virtual environments. It is built on the Ethereum blockchain and aims to develop a network owned by its members while also providing immersive gaming experiences. Axie Infinity took the crypto world by storm during the Covid-19 pandemic, emerging as the biggest “play-to-earn” game, blazing a trail for the likes of Sandbox and Decentraland. With a virtual reality aspect, this project is realizing the vision of the metaverse. The Sandbox is essentially a game, and it has the backing of gaming brands like Atari, which could help it navigate the current bear market. In addition, Lionsgate recently partnered with The Sandbox to create a “Hellboy”-themed metaverse destination, Deadline reported, and Tony Hawk announced he will build a skateboard park there.

  5. Die Casino Apps zum Herunterladen sind im App Store eher selten. Dies liegt an den der restriktiven Store Politik seitens von Apple. Das Unternehmen ist im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz Google weit weniger offen gegenüber Echtgeld Spielen. Vereinzelte Online Casino iPhone Apps sind dennoch verfügbar. Trotz Download bestechen diese durch schnelle Ladezeiten und komfortable Navigation, die perfekt auf euer Mobilgerät abgestimmt ist. Über Angebote für Sie als Neukunden, zum Beispiel einen Willkommensbonus, informieren Sie sich am besten direkt auf der Website des Handy Casinos, wo Sie auch alle Details fürs Spielen um Echtgeld auf dem iPhone erhalten. Übrigens ist fast jedes iPhone Casino Spiel, bei dem Geldeinsätze möglich sind, auch ohne Internetzugang in Spielgeldversionen, in der App für mobile Casino Spiele zugänglich.

  6. For Australians using prepaid credit, the phone company deducts the funds immediately from your balance and those who pay monthly have the amount added to their phone bill as if they made calls for that cost. Pay by phone bill casino Australia isn’t available for landlines as it is in the UK. Still, mobile casino deposit by phone bill Australia is available from cellular phone service companies. There are so many benefits to signing up to a phone bill casino and then making a deposit that way.  Being a pay by phone casino means we offer a safe and quick and easy method to deposit money. When making the most of a deposit by phone casino, you can simply and speedily deposit and be playing games in no time. In most cases there are no fees for depositing via mobile phone and that is a huge draw for players. With debit card payments about to be a thing of the past at UK-based online casinos, so too may processing fees be extinct soon. Depositing at a casino with a credit card was treated the same way as drawing cash; a flat fee is charged by the credit card company. With a mobile phone deposit however, it is simply added to the bill with no extra fee.
    Another potential problem with the Martingale is that it can lead to chasing losses. If you keep doubling your bet after every loss, eventually you will reach the table limit and be unable to continue increasing your bet. The Martingale system can reap rewards in blackjack but be aware that a losing downswing can seriously dent your bankroll. You could reach your betting limit or even hit the table limit before ending a bad run. Casinos may still be closed due to Covid-19, or there may still be many restrictions on the number of visitors allowed in; that is why Netbet Casino has been attracting even more attention from gamblers around the globe. Why not take this time to hone your skills? How about trying to master the martingale strategy? This being said – I pretty much have moved over to Craps after a long series of making nothing at blackjack…
