I appreciate all of you patience in waiting until Google cleared Pewsplace for viewing. It has been a long battle and expensive to clean up the Malware. Hopefully, we will have several more years of a safe website.
The GNRS is in the books and we are headed into the season of driving our Hot Rods on the highways which is what I enjoy the most. I enjoyed the seeing the beautiful paint jobs and exacting details of the show cars but I much prefer the sitting behind the steering wheels and watching the highway disappear as we search the Back Roads for adventure and good times. We are starting off 2018 with a trip to some new destinations that weren’t destroyed by the great fires we endured this year. I have Pepe running excellent and Poppy under repair for an unknown shutdown problem. She just won’t stay running. Walt and I replaced the module, resistor and coil with no luck in keeping it from shutting down after a few minutes. We are looking into a new distributor and fuel pump to see if those could be the problem. A Hot Rod will always present challenges and we usually are up to meeting those challenges, but this one is taking longer than most. I will figure it out and let you know.
As for my health issues, I have been seeking treatment to improve functioning of my shoulders and hands. Age is not kind to us when we continue to do things that were a piece of cake years ago but now can be challenging. Arthritis is the biggest culprit causing the discomfort. I’m sure many of you know the feeling when trying to use your body as you used to. I’m very thankful for good doctors who help ease the discomfort.
As you know, I love to see your projects in any stage of the build process or completed. I will publish them and work them into the theme for the blog. Please feel free to send them to me a Pewsplace@gmail.com.
Now that we have seen another traditional roadster win the AMBR award, it will be interesting to see what style the Riddler Award we be this year. Usual winners are radically modified customs.

I have always liked the Deuce sedan as a hiboy with or without a chopped top. This year’s show had several on display.
This 39 was a entire in the show a few years ago. George Young and son build some nice woodies.
Parked in front of the Suede Palace was this 39 standard convertible.
From Rex Rods Keith had this very nice 5-window with Buick engine.
The color is almost a stock looking Winterleaf Brown.
Equally impressive was this REX Rods 34 hiboy. Keith knows Hot Rods.
Tony had his much modified 40 convertible in the Show and Tom captured a perfect photo.
I missed this one but I like the patina and stock height!
Roy had some beautiful cars in his display and this four door was my favorite.
Tom captured this perfect photo of the Rolling Bones display. If you like the look they were displayed in a very well laid out scheme.
