As we progress into the summer months, we are going to experience some hotter than normal days. The entire country is being plagued with record setting temperatures. Goodguys big event was in Columbus and I know several of my friends who attended the show. The heat can be a deterrent even for the hard core roadster drivers. My friend Larry and his son trailered their Deuce sedan hiboy to the event as his old body can’t stand the 4 hour drive, especially with the Winters Quickchange howling in the rear end. Looks are everything in a hot rod but sometimes common sense takes over and you realize that you are not as young as you used to be. You really need to ride in comfort to the event in order to enjoy the event. We are lucky to have several events that are no more than an hour drive. P-Town, another Goodguys big event is a 5 1/2 drive but if you take your time and ride in a comfortable hot rod you can arrive and still feel fresh. The choice is ours and sometimes the ride you select is not the Prom Queen ride but rather your nice riding 40 tudor sedan.
The weekend was quiet at Pewsplace and I did finish painting the rear brake parts. I have a big week planned to deliver on my promise of a roller by the weekend. I am trying to beat Steve and his coupe project.
Stay Tooned and Cool!
Life on the central coast is good. Here are three of Henry’s most desirable hot rods. Steve is leading the group to a lunch stop on their impromptu drive on a beautiful sunny California day. I know some of you have all three of these rides in your stable.
Sometimes a clean black 40 pickup is all you need to run to the “Office”. See the Early Ford Club site for details.
Frank finally purchased his latest dream car. He has been looking for several months and settled on this one. He drove it home and stopped for one of Franks famous hot dogs. The 39 convertible coupe is a classic hot rod and is my kind of hot rod.
My search for a 40 woody project has netted me some great leads. I know it looks bad but the owner said it is very solid with only surface rust. Now for that cheap wood kit….did I say cheeeeep?
Corey stopped for quick look at the Pacific Ocean on his way down the central coast.
How about a Washington Blue sedan delivery? I like the Halibrands on these deliveries.
Tim is finishing this black on black sedan for one of his customers. This will be a great long distance driver. The glass looks tinted.
Mike likes to stop and view the Pacific ocean on his way back to hot Tucson. I heard the car has been sold but I can’t confirm the sale. I thought he really built a super sedan to be driven in comfort and style.
Just a reminder that Bonneville is coming up real soon. I think Mariani has a new 34 for the salt this year.
Today’s 40 coupe!
Picture perfect! Gary’s coupe is any hot rodder’s dream car. Stance is everything on a 40 coupe and this one confirms the statement.
