My wife and I are in San Francisco for the birth of our new Granddaughter, Izzy, she and her mother are doing just wonderful. We now have two precious grandchildren that will bring us back to this beautiful “City by the Bay” on a regular basis. I hope to visit a few hot rod buddies while in town and hopefully check on their projects.
The big winner of the Ridler Award this past weekend at Cobo Hall was a 1965 Chevrolet Impala designed and built by super star Chip Foose. Congratulations to Chip and his team on their accomplishments in capturing the prestigious Ridler Award. It seems like the later cars continue to dominate this event as shown by the “Great 8” finalist. One 32 roadster and a 37 Woody were in the final running. This long running show has been a favorite of top builders to show off their design and execution expertise.
I had an opportunity to attend the Koffee and Kix this weekend and the turnout was impressive for the first event of 2015. Don always does a great job of making everyone feel right at home and feeds us accordingly. I look forward to next month’s event.
I am off to the hospital to visit Izzy so that’s all for today. Have a great week!
The Impala had multiple modifications and classic Foose touches in every corner.
This 32 was one of the finalist for the Ridler this year.
The 3 window was being admired by the Hooters at a recent show. Sorry you can’t see more of the 3 window. FB photo.
SFSS can add the all important bead to edge of a 33 hood as shown above. Now that takes talent.
This Barry’s Speed Shop special was looking good at Koffee and Kix on Saturday. It seems like the Dearborn Deuce has done quite well since being introduced a few years ago.
The early arrivals always “Power Park” and have first look at the Koffee and Kix.
Frantic showed up for the first time in his well traveled sedan delivery. Nice to see you Fred.
Dave’s Tub always draws a crowd and Craig was telling us how he did the engine turned panel for the Auburn dash many years ago.
Time for a little fun after a day on the salt.
Dennis liked the action also in his RB sedan.
