Monday’s Deuce Show

The first Havasu Deuces show is in the books and judging by all the photos I received it was a huge success. The garage tours on Friday and the display on Saturday was Deuce heaven to most Deuce lovers. Both spectators and owners were enjoying seeing all these old Deuces cruising the streets of Havasu. The planners are to be given a big round of applause for organizing and implementing  the show. No small job to hold such an event and I thank them for their efforts as I’m sure everyone else does. Looks like there will be another one in the future. The Deuce continues to be the most popular Hot Rod of all time. I am not sure why they continue to be built but I have to think Brookville bodies have made a lot of people happy who wanted to build a Deuce. The aftermarket is booming for the Deuce parts manufacturer and will continue to do so in the future. It doesn’t matter that the cars are over built compared to other models, the demand is there as is the supply — so the price will continue to be within the reach of those who seek the Iconic Deuce. I think most of us are beyond the stage of it must be a “Henry” built or I don’t want it. The enjoyment comes for the building and driving experience that most of us remember when talking Hot Rods. Thanks for all the excellent photos I received, I appreciate them very much.

“Keeping the Flame Burning One Day at a Time” is my motto and I hope you will continue to support these events.

 

Stay Tooned!

The sky was a little cloudy early on but cleared up later.

I think the count was 175 Deuces in all. You could keep busy all day long looking at the Iconic Deuce. Examples of most models were present.

Val liked this particular Deuce and so do I. She rode over with her husband in his Deuce roadster.

Spotless garages are to die for. A place for everything and everything in place. Impressive!

John had an impressive garage filled with Deuces, signs and Deuce grille shells.

The Deuce is in the front but some really nice other makes were also in this garage.

A old build but still very nice is this tudor tub with skirted front fenders and Duvall windshield.

You can’t beat a chopped tudor for comfort on your long trip to Havasu. The Moon Disc do it for me.

Dave from the Back Road Boys also made the trip to Havasu.

Joe’s Deuce sedan with Ryan Reed’s enhanced stance was really looking sweet on the polished concert floor.

Ryan snapped this shot of Joe’s sedan on the lawn. The front running board/fender height shows the lowness of the sedan.

Heading home Ryan stopped for this historic shot! Route 66 made famous by the TV show than ran from 1960-64 which was when I was in college. We watched that show in the basement for the entire duration. Starring Martin Milner and George Maharis who were two drifters driving across America.

Walt had his Boyd all aluminum built Deuce on display to bring back memories of Boyd and his red cars.

In closing, this is how the Iconic Deuce got started and I am happy it lasted all of these years. A young car guy listening to some good advice from the “Suit!”

“Long Live the Deuce!”

  18. Don’t operate your dish washer unless it is actually filled to potential.It uses the same numbers of electrical energy and h2o regardless of whether one meal is in it. When you do manage the dishwasher, be sure to apply the vitality-conserving characteristic, which atmosphere-dries your meals.

  19. Hello.This post was extremely fascinating, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this matter last couple of days.

  20. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

  21. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.

    extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!

  27. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

  32. Awesome issues here. I am very glad to peer your article.
    Thanks so much and I am having a look ahead to contact you.
    Will you please drop me a mail?

  33. We stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page again.

  34. The polite lady in the office didn’t speak much English when I visited, but the process to rent a scooter from is quick & efficient. You can message on Facebook to see what stock they have available or just turn up. Side Note: I’m not sure the logo for Bikes gives off the best impression XD. Farang guy zooming on a Vespa without a helmet… With an almost perfect feedback score on Google & Facebook, you’re in good hands with them. They also have a garage next door to the rental shop where they’ll perform regular maintenance. I’ve rented a Mio from here which had squeaky breaks due to water in the drum brake. They quickly swapped this bike to another hassle-free. Although the variety of bikes they stock is a lot smaller, they offer very competitive pricing and are conveniently located at the Huay Kaew end of Santitham. If you’ve seen the Yamaha Tricity, and thought heck, I’d love to give that bike a try. Then send a message to Cheap Charlie and they are renting the Tricity for only 3850 per month. The unique two wheels at the front (3 wheels overall) of this scooter offer much more stability than a tradition two-wheeled scooter. Charlie Rentals also offers fantastic monthly prices with Clicks & Scoopys as low as 1900 baht per month.

  38. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?|
