Friday’s Fords

The cold spell really hit most of the US and the wet spell has hit California. All these Polar Vortex spells and storms makes working on the Hot Rod a tough challenge. I managed to list, sell and ship some parts this week but got nothing accomplished on my cars.

Poppy needs a new lower fan belt and Pepe needs a new lower radiator hose. It seems the power steering pump came loose and allowed the belt to rub a hole in the lower hose. I lost some fluid but made it home. Working on your Hot Rod is a full time job to keep them in running condition. I always like to drive them once a week to keep the seals from drying out and the fluids flowing.

As we are now in the second month of 2019, the events start to show up on our SO-CAL Car Calendar. The Early Times Mid-Winter run is on the 24th and is always a lot of fun for our group. The Back Road Boys will going to Santa Barbara for a tasty lunch and some coast cruising. We lost one of our leaders who moved to AZ so we will designate a new tour guide soon. I will continue to do the planning and making reservations. We are looking forward to a great year.

Stay Tooned!
