We had a great weekend with our Woodie friends at the Doheny Wood Show in Dana Point, CA. The weatherman cooperated and we had super weather for the show. The turnout was around 150 wooden wagons which is about normal for this show. We all brought our contribution to Dave’s wonderful Trip-Tip lunch and enjoyed the day at the beach. I can’t say enough about the people that attend the Woodie show and their cars. They both are outstanding. We are looking forward to the next show in Santa Barbara, CA.
My hand is still giving me some problems typing so I’ll close for tonight and wish all of you a wonderful week.

We were all welcomed by the SC Woodie Club.
Bob Oney built this beautiful 47 Woody a few years ago and it showed up yesterday.
A different approach to the dash instruments. I like it!
Here is a comparison to a nicely restored original dash in a 47 Ford.
Shoe boxes are real popular with the Woodie crowd.
Jim owns this old Don Thelan build and It still looks great. He also owns a Deuce roadster.
I liked this 40 wagon with a P&J chassis and SBC.
This very nice shoebox was for sale for a $118K. No takers today!
The interior of the 1950 was very nicely done with all the modern conveniences.
Sometimes we just have to step back and admire our build. Heavy chop on this Deuce.
The 40 also makes a nice custom when decked out with skirts and Desoto bumpers.
A friend in Hawaii just purchased this barn find 32 and has made it drivable. Many people prefer this look and appreciate the original body.
By comparison, many choose to build a repo model to their taste and live with comments about it being a repo. For me, I would prefer this one any day of the week over a stock 32 as shown above.
Hollywood Hot Rods has a new facility and here are a few photos from FB.
Troy likes these engines and has installed several in his builds.
This unique 3-window has been a long term project at HHR.
The engines do detail up real nice when Troy in finished with them.
