Shakespeare said, “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing” and working on a computer is a good example of his foresight. I mentioned yesterday that I had lost my pictures due to an error I made in trying to clean up I photo. Thanks to my son, the computer wizard, he was able to retrieve all of my photos. I am now back in business with my blog. I owe him big time. Thanks Chris.
Independence Day brings a lot of celebration to Americans. BBQ’s, beer, hot dogs and hamburgers will be served all over America to celebrate our freedom. I hope all of you take time to think about what it means to be living in a country that allows us as much freedom as we have. I know times are difficult now but we will survive and live to see another day. Americans, when united, are as strong as any nation in the world. It is up to us to keep the spirit alive and the flame burning. Put your flag outside and let people know you are an American.
Parades and car shows will be held all over the US and our little town is no different. Fire up that hot rod and join in the festivities. I hope to take more pictures this weekend so…
Have a great Independence Day!
The above picture tells the story for me. We all need to unify and make America great again.
Deliveries were used to sell war bonds so we could win the war. I hope it doesn’t come to this again. I won’t have mine done in time.
She looks a little overdressed for the parade but her 3 window is right on the money. Note wheels and headlights. I bet her husband is a hot rodder.
This is the March of 1951 Hot Rod cover showing the parade of roadsters. Now this is a parade I would enjoy.
The Forties Limited had a tour on Saturday and this is a photo from one of the stops. Nice 29 would look good in the parade on Sunday.
Rudy is just finishing this beauty. Nick would be proud of this one. He set the standard many years ago.
I thought this battery box looked good in the engine compartment. Most of the people put them in the trunk, but I kind of like this set up. The whole car works for me.
Standard sedans are nice especially when they look this good. The owner of this low mileage original has upgraded it to the modern day with a new French block flathead and highly detailed undercarriage.
Bob O would like this set up in his new coupe. Note clean wiring and routing of all hoses on this engine.
Orville had a very nice just completed 40 standard coupe in LaPalma. He likes Folkstone gray and orange wheels. Looks good to me.
Classic interior shows stock interior and dash with late model column. The whole car’s theme is carried out in every detail and upgraded without drawing attention to the modification. Nice job Orv.
Orv has his trademark of OEM looking engines in his cars. The SBC looks like GM installed it in an early Chevy. Everything is very tidy everywhere you look.
Even the trunk is finished is a simple square weave carpet from LaBaron Bonney.
Chris had to go to Canada to pick up his sedan body. I have hauled the bodies in my pickup for many years. Yes they fit. Nice scenery!
