Monday’s Mood

It seems that driving your Hot Rod is something most of us do on a regular basis. I enjoy driving something that you had a hand in building or buying. I seem to love fixing things on purchased Hot Rods and I love the tear down and rebuilding of early iron. I don’t have the body for full on restorations any more, but I can still do the light work without much trouble (Aleve) or other complications. Seeing progress on your project gives you an ego that you actually made the part and it worked. Some failures are bound to happen but making a part more than once is not shameful. I remember visiting Lil’John’s place and there would be a pile of scrape parts in the corner. He always said, ” It must be right or I won’t put my name on it.” I am not that fussy, but do like it to be safe and functional without obvious design flaws. Due to a busy schedule this year I haven’t worked much in the garage but hope to get back at it soon!

The Early Times Mid-Winter Rod Run is Sunday, February 28. The meeting place is at Richard’s Place and leaves at 9:00 AM. Should be fun as always. We have a group planning on attending.

Have a productive week!

Stay Tooned!


Stay Tooned!



B 25 009

My friend Dave, who has a fleet of Hot Rods, drives his trusty tub most days and was captured in front of this B-25 in Camarillo, CA. The tub has over 200,000 miles and is still going strong. Purchased from Neal East in the 60’s and redone by Dave over the years.


Dean captured this 34 roadster which looks good in the silver paint (including grille) and black top.


The back has a nerf bar and LZ tail lights.


Ken has decided to sell his convertible and you can read about it under Cars For Sale. Looks to be a beautiful Hot Rod.


Several of our Donut shop crowd like the 1939 Ford convertible sedan. The project is located in snowy Chicago and is priced right but would require lots of work.


Lew has a nice selection in his garage. He has long been a 40 Ford and Deuce fan. (5-window)


This R&C cover car, was a dream of mine for many years. I saw it at the NHRA Nationals in Indy. All chrome undercarriage!


Mel decided to take his beautiful roadster out on a rare winter day in IL.


Pete likes to race his cars as well as drive them on the road. Here is his famous roadster in race trim.


Frank has another new Deuce for his fleet. From MI, and older Henry sedan that looks great. Hairpins, Halibrands and dropped axle complete the package.


Steve and the CCR’s went to lunch and this 34 showed up and started his dreams again.


A pair of Deuce Woody’s are a rare sight. Big rake on the black one.


This one is close to the original Winterleaf Brown color.

In the Garage


Gary, from Cornhusker, has been using a straight rear crossmember with the Winters QC for several years. Rubber snubbers are used in the C-nothches.


He reports no clearance problems and it looks like he moves the 2×2 tubing back about 1 1/2″ . No floor issues with this set up. I am changing mine so I don’t have to cut the floor. Thanks Gary!

  37. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I
    was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  38. I was just looking for this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.

  39. Excellent post! We will be linking to this
    particularly great article on our website. Keep up the great writing.

  40. 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.

  41. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are
    not already 😉 Cheers!

  42. I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained
    about my website not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help
    fix this issue?

  43. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos|

  44. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a top notch article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
