I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday and are ready to start the week off in the right direction. We had lots of events going on over the weekend as did the rest of the country. With the season being in full swing throughout the country, everyone is enjoying driving their hot rods. We had a house full of company but did manage to make our annual Memorial Day drive on PCH through Malibu and view the magnificent Pacific. The roads were crowded but the view was worth the effort. The roadster boys were having fun in the North as well as the West Coast Kustom boys were enjoying a weekend in Santa Maria. I love seeing the roadsters and customs driving side by side with the sparkling waters and crystal clear skies proving a perfect background for photos. FB is full of photos that show what I am talking about. Having fun with cars, seeing old friends and meeting new ones makes the holiday memorable for all who choose to make the effort.
On a sad note, one of my long term friends and fellow hot rodder, Larry Hoffman, passed away last week and is building a new Deuce in his big garage in the sky. He was always there for me and could answer any question I ever asked him. I will miss him.
Thought for the day â€” if you continue to wait until the next time to take a trip â€” that time may never come! Do it now! The LARS is just a few weeks away.
Nashville had some really nice cars and this shoebox was one of them. The engine compartment was full of excitement with a Ford in a Ford combination.
More and more of these Ford motors are showing up in just about everything these days. The stack injection really is impressive looking and works flawlessly.
The Deuce Victoria had one of this big boys installed and left off the hood sides for us to view.
Lots of detail in this one. Dave spent some time looking it over real close. You don’t see many T’s anymore.
I am sure that turtle deck is filled with required operating items such as gas and electrical.
Santa Maria had some really nice customs like this 36 taildragger.
Darryl had his eye popping roadster in Santa Maria for everyone to drool over. This is a beautiful roadster and is driven almost daily.
You do need to stop for gas and some food while on the road at night.
Rodger picked this patina Deuce as his favorite at the Springfield NSRA show. He would have painted it “old 99 lacquer”.
Gary’s old Deuce sedan is up for sale again and is located in the next town over. The new owner has added some upgrades but the car is pretty much as built by Cornhuskers.
I would love to own this nice 33 coupe with the chrome wheels and ww’s.
Here is another one with a different build approach. I like all three door hinges and bones.
It is just hard to beat a 46-48 wagon for all around comfort, room and cruising. The wood is the big money item on building one of these beauties.
Today’s Hill Climb Special
Don built this classic racer a few years ago, sold it and then repurchased it. Immaculate detail and still running mechanical brakes.
New Cars For Sale
See these two beauties under the For Sale section.
Opportunity for a rare car to be yours.
A rare 1934 Ford Phaeton is being offered also. Lot’s of history and not quite finished but would make a stunning street rod.
