Monday’s Mood

As snow starts to fall in some parts of the country, Rodder’s start to think about what to do during the down time. Many have purchased a new project and or upgrades for their current ride. They will be busy in their heated garage or some shop having them installed.

The economy has taken its toll on some shops and also some jobs that support our hobby. This has caused some to sell their hot rods and maybe ride it out until the economy improves. This has been a very hard year for many who enjoy our hobby. I wish all the best of luck in the remainder of the year and 2021.

My RA has improved so that I am able to do some work with my hands (limited) and have been getting the new rear end ready for painting and assembly. I chose a Chassis Engineering kit to install the unit in Blue. Gordon donating a pair of springs and Heidts now has all of the CE parts available. I will have everything ready to go in another month or so.

We all dream about our next ride and I’m no different. I still want another 33 roadster as my last ride and continue to search for parts and a suitable body; dreams are what keeps me going. “Remember you’re never too old to dream another dream”.

As we head into the holiday season, our attention turns to family and enjoying the best of the season. The pandemic makes it difficult to enjoy being in groups so this year it will probably be done using Zoom as the media. This seems to be the new normal.

Stay Safe.

Stay Tooned!

I like the top on this convertible. Some are just not right for my eye if they are left stock.
