The weatherman has played havoc with our plans all across the country but especially in the east and west. Our plans for the Beach Cruiser event should be O.K. as the rain is supposed to subside by then. We seldom cancel an event in our area due to rain. It rains so little that you can almost pick any weekend for a show or trip. The problem this year is that the heavy rains have destroyed some of our sacred spots to drive our cars. Roads have been closed, venues closed and this condition will force some events to be moved to a later date or cancelled. The Woodies in the Valley was cancelled sort of due to rain, but many drove regular cars and had some fun anyway. I am looking forward to Saturday for a shot of Woodies.
I wish I could report some good news on Poppy but I can’t. She still doesn’t start or pump fuel. I won’t make anymore comments until I can say she is running. Hopefully, by the LARS! I have been talking to Dave about his Deuce frame for another project I would like to start. I missed out on a nice Wescott body, but know of a Phaeton for sale that sounds interesting. Just dreaming at this time but I need another chassis to build or get rid of the jig.
As we start the season, please feel free to send me any photos of our projects or completed cars. I will post them when appropriate. Enjoy your weekend driving your hot rod or working on it if you live in the snowy east.

As the weather permits, we all will be hitting the roads with our Hot Rods. Overnight stays are common for the long distance trips. George and Denny unload their goods at the motel.
Pat somehow fits in his Deuce and drives it to the events in LA.
The cabriolet is a rare Hot Rod but do look good.
Sometimes we need to rebuild our Hot Rods after an accident and Walsh’s Restoration is the place to go.
This clone is being done to save our history of famous cars.
Roy built this looker and the owner drives the wheels off the roadster.
I love this photo of SFSS sedan.
Here is a better view of the sedan.
Great shot of a 40 coupe and garage!
This 34 comes to the LARS each year from Soutn Dakota and is a favorite of mine.
The 40 convertible is a long time favorite of mine and I have owned three of them.
Roy built this 34 roadster using a reproduction body from SAR.
A chopped 34 sedan has a great profile.
The PRC was an annual event that I really enjoyed.
CSR built this beauty and it’s for sale as you see it.
A classic chopped sedan really is a great road Hot Rod with room for 4.
A nice clean 36 sedan delivery.
Jocko’s Speed Shop 40 pickup is a mint original with a full house flatty.
Lucy can hold her own with the Deuces.
Time to hit the road in our Hot Rods for some good times with our friends.
