Friday’s Fords

I have been working on Poppe this past week fixing lots of little items that require attention on a 30 year old HotRod. Brake rotors, radiator cap, grease fittings, wheel seals and a host of small items. The car only has about 20,000 miles on the speedometer so it was in great shape for the most part. Boyd and his team built quality Hot Rods that go down the road with the best ride possible using his chassis with 4-wheel independent suspension. I am very pleased with the overall performance of this former AMBR contender from 1987.

I was successful in selling all of my parts that I had advertised and now have some room in the garage to work on Pepe and Poppy! Keeping up with the maintenance is a full time job and something that I like to do. I try to keep up my welding and fabrication skills by making needed replacement brackets and required modifications. The old eyes are not what they used to be but I get by with decent looking welds.

Have a good weekend driving your Hot Rod!

Stay Tooned!

Ruby has been on the road for many years and still looks pristine. She has been updated with A/C, MII, PS and new wiring for the long haul Woody shows.

Don Orosco’s Deuce wowed the crowds at Car Week in Monterey.

A period build with all the correct components used throughout.

The car will be a contender in the 2018 AMBR Show in Pomona.

The standard delivery is a rare bird in 1940 Models.

I like everything about the 34 sedan with the chop, color and whitewalls.

The late Pete Chapouris with the Donae Spencer car that he finished at his SO-CAL Speed Shop.


Don has been building traditional Hot Rods for many years and this one is one of his best.

Gary’s Deuce is just right and black on black is my favorite theses days.

My first Deuce was a 5 window so I’m partial to the hiboy coupes.

Dan’s roadster has long been a favorite of mine — All Steel on a Lobeck chassis.

You don’t see many hiboy model 40 roadsters but I love this one.

Tim built a very nice 40 convertible and chose a maroon interior to compliment the black exterior.

He added a maroon top also to add to the contrast.

I like 40’s with the top down and sitting just right. Nice job Tim!
