Friday’s Tour

I was sitting in my favorite chair when the phone rang. I noticed it was Bob-O so I answered the phone and he advised me that Dave, from Australia, was in town. He had called and invited us to have lunch at Galpin Ford and tour their automotive collection. I could hardly say no as Galpin is the largest Ford dealer in the world and his grandson is an avid car collector. I should remind you that Dave purchased Bob-O’s 40 coupe a couple of years ago and was in the US to attend the LSRU with Lucky of Old Crow Speed Shop fame. (He now has his own shop) Bob-O wanted to drive his 40 sedan to show Dave so after a long coffee break at the “Office” we headed to Van Nuys.

We arrived and parked in front of the Horseless Carriage restaurant which is located in the dealership. Bob-O knows everyone in the joint so we had a private parking place and a great booth by the door. Dave and Lucky arrived and we discussed the Roundup and enjoyed a fabulous meal. Lucky and Bob were able to arrange for the tour which is located in a building a short distance from the restaurant. When we walked outside their were a few people looking at the old Ford parked in front of the world’s largest Ford dealer. Most people who love these cars have gray hair but some of the younger fellows like Dave also love the old Fords. After doing a complete walk-around sales pitch we drove to the Collection with Dave in the back seat. He is wanting a family car and this one would be perfect. He sat in the back seat and was amazed at the amount of room in a 40 Ford sedan. I think he is hooked.

We were admitted to the vehicle display by our tour guide and spent the next couple of hours viewing and listening to the history of each car. The curator was very knowledgeable about each car. The cars range from rare Cobra’s, Mustangs, Roth built specials and a host of hot rods. My favorite was the Bill Likes 29 highboy roadster (Edelbrock Special) that is fully restored and in primo condition. The car was purchased with a complete collection of invoices, speed tags and loads of documents outlining the history of the car. Bill was an employee of Edelbrock and set lots of records with the car. Lucky ask if we would like to see another car that he chopped for the owner. We jumped at the chance even though we had already spent too much time looking at cars.

The award winning 5 window was stored in another workshop located a few blocks down the road. We enjoyed looking at this wonderful 60’s style 34 five window coupe with lots of show car touches including a plexiglass side panel hood. The car placed in the top 10 at the Detroit Autorama this year. Finally, we thanked our host for the tour, jumped in the 40 sedan and headed home on the busy freeway.

I would like to thank Dave, Lucky and Bob-O for inviting me and making the day one to remember.

Stay Tooned!

Lucky is checking out the sedan outside the restaurant located in the dealership. The patina sedan would look good in Australia.

My iPhone photos are not the best but you can see the quality of the collection. The 65 Shelby Mustang is #1 and was purchased at BJ for 375K. Nice!

This is an original 1964 Daytona coupe from the famous builder. The blue one is a clone built on the same jigs.

A pristine example of an early Cobra fully restored. Some race history and documented makes this a valuable car.

Here is a 66 Shelby with the side scoops and rear side windows.

The Collection includes a display of Von Dutch knives and guns he was famous for.

Von Dutch once owned this XK140 Jaguar with his touches apparent all over the car.

Bill Likes 29 roadster was my favorite car. The display included all the history memorabilia  he had kept while he owned the car including and extra engine and transmission.

The engine was period correct including the flex pipe headers. I saw timing tags that were in excess of 140 mph.

The Halibrand was standard equipment on all quality racers of the day. There is no substitute for the Halibrand in my mind for an early build.

Today’s 60’s Style Show Hot Rod!

Untold hours and dollars were spent on building this very detailed 60’s style show car. Modifications were everywhere along with extensive chrome plating that exceeded $100K.

I thought it was 1962 again when I saw the upholstered firewall. Everything is chromed including the radiator. Advanced plating did all of the outstanding chrome work.

  4. Saving on commission fees is one of the most common reasons sellers decide to go it alone. But even if you can avoid the 2.5% to 3% of the sale price you’ll pay your own agent, you’ll still likely pay 2.5% to 3% of the sale price to your buyer’s agent ??” unless your buyer is also not using an agent. According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report 2021, 82% of home buyers are represented by an agent, so prepare to pay their commission. Eventually, hopefully, an interested buyer will offer you a price. There may be some negotiation involved. This entire process will be easier if you have a clear idea of your home’s value and a firm minimum price in mind, but again, this is where a professional real estate agent can really be worth their weight in gold. 2. Buyer Agents avoid FSBO: Buyer??™s agents will often avoid showing FSBO homes altogether. They don??™t like bringing their clients to these homes because they are so frequently overpriced, poorly staged, and it??™s more difficult to schedule a showing without a seller??™s agent. The transactions can be dicey, as the sellers likely do not have all their correct documentation prepared and can thus be a headache for buyers. https://topsecretfree.com/foros/profile/kristapaige658/ New construction options are endless on the First Coast.

Oboje zmierzaj? do tego, do czego w ka?dej odmianie pokera si? d??y – u?o?enia jak najmocniejszego uk?adu pi?ciu kart, spo?ród dwóch w?asnych (niedost?pnych dla rywala) oraz trzech z pi?ciu wspólnych, mo?liwych do wykorzystania przez obu uczestników rozgrywki. Z perspektywy typuj?cego mo?emy obstawia?: Postautor: Sith » 31 gru 2008, 10:16 Najlepszym pokerem jest tzw. poker królewski (ang. royal flush), czyli as, król, dama, walet, dziesi?? w jednym kolorze.

  16. Hi Lynn, I just came across this posting when I was searching for some information on a old jaguar I owned for many years and restored in the late 90’s. One small bit you got wrong I would like to set straight. The Von Dutch XK 140 coupe in the Galpin collection was never owned by Dutch.
    Von Dutch did do some relatively mild performance upgrades, pin-striped and stylized the car as you mentioned in the late 50’s. It was rather painful stripping the car’s paint as I new at the time we could not really honestly re-do the pin stripping and call it Dutch’s work. We did faithfully restore all of the other Dutch features but decided to not reproduce the striping. I am really glad to see it has such a good home. I believe the Galpin collection all of this information correct on their website.
    cheers
