Friday’s Fun

Let’s see; Speed Week, Pebble Beach Concourse d’elegance, Car Auctions, Andy’s Picnic, Woodies at the Beach and GG’s in P-Town; yes, the automotive biggies are in August and draw thousands of participants and spectators from around the globe. Room rates in Monterey equal SF during this time of year and they are sold out. Car enthusiasts are spending money they don’t have but they are having fun thinking it doesn’t get much better than this and they are right.

Each year I head north to enjoy most of these events. Many of the B’ville cars drive straight to GG’s with the salt still on their cars. I hope they clean them soon or the rust man will get them. Bob-O is spending today cleaning his coupe with a power washer and a gentle hose spray.

I picked up Curvy from Frantic and he fixed all the problems even in this 106 degree weather. He is the go to shop for your repairs. I will spend tomorrow cleaning the car and making sure all the wheels and tires are up to Walt’s specs.

Have a great weekend with your hot rods and make sure you smile all the time.

Stay Tooned!

Lou captured Bob-O’s coupe parked on the salt with the Early Riders group. Driving a little Deuce coupe 1600 miles in 100 degree weather is something you don’t do every day.

I love this 40 sedan with the cooler installed. The moon disc look right at home on the 40. I am not sure about the color name but I like it.

These guys do have fun and drive the wheels off their cars.

You don’t see many 29 deliveries but I have always liked them since I saw the one Lobeck built.

Nice 40 coupes bring the money. These guys are trying to see if they can drive the price down a little so the wife will let them buy it. The car did sell to a long time 40 coupe lover from AZ.

I try to take various wheel photos to show the many variations of steel wheels that are being used today. I love these black wheels with maroon stripe and v8 logo in the stripe.

Jim has one of the nicer 34 phaeton’s around today. He has been keeping it busy driving to various events this year.

The shoebox woodies are really popular and command a big price in today’s woody market. It is hard to beat black and varnish when done like this one is.

Alan Johnson originally built this one-off woody and then it was completely redone to its current state by  the new owner.

Today’s $$$0 Woody!

This one was part of the trio of woodies from TX that showed up at the LARS this year. All three were very well built and were driven to the show.

  1. I drove my 40 Tudor down to B’ville from Meridian, Idaho with the window cooler that doesn’t work that well, it helps, but it’s not new age A/C. The color was modified from Folkstone Gray, everything I’d ever read about FG was that it’s more tan than gray, so when I had the Lacquer mixed to shoot I had them “Tan” it up a little over what the color chip showed……..my wife likes it and so do I.
