Monday’s Mood

The past week has been very cold for Los Angeles. Temperatures have been in the high 30’s in the morning and the low 50’s during the day. We are not used to these temps this time of year and I don’t have a heated garage for working on the Hot Rods. So what is a man to do?

I find myself spending lots of time at my computer or iPhone which is non-productive in my mind. Looking at various sites like the HAMB and Fordbarn provide lots of information and tons of For Sale items. I even bought some items which I didn’t need but couldn’t pass up. But the answer is to stay active not sitting and dreaming. If this keeps up, I am going to take some field trips to some Hot Rod shops and take some photos for my blog.

Today, I am going to feature some Hot Rods by the water. I live close to the Pacific Ocean and love to drive my Hot Rods to the water’s edge. The water provides the relaxing mood and serenity I need sometimes to get my mind clear of distractions. We have lots of shoreline to visit and we do often forget they are they are close at hand.

Stay Tooned!
