Monday’s Mood

The road ahead of us may not be as uncertain in 2021 as we have a new president-elect taking over the leadership of our great country. Most of us have suffered in one way or the other and are looking for some relief in our lives. I was raised to think change is not always for the good but change is inevitable.

My love of the automobile and the events associated with the vehicle have been greatly affected during 2020. Consequently, we have not been able to enjoy our hobby and cars as in the past. I hope the solution to the pandemic will come very soon. Promoters and enthusiasts have had to adjust their schedules and budgets to hang on during these trying times. Our support will be greatly appreciated during the coming year.

I seem to be stalled in my efforts in working on Blue. I have some health issues (RA) & age that are still causing a delay with my physical capabilities. My mind is fine and I have all the required tools but unable to convince my body to go ahead and do the task at hand. I admire people of my age who can still crawl under cars, weld and fabricate, and assemble their projects.

Pewsplace has a large following and I try to answer all questions I receive. I also listen to suggestions about what vehicles to feature. Most of you know, that have followed me all these years, that my love are roadsters and open wheeled cars from the 30’s. Please continue to send me your photos and I will include them.

Hopefully the new year will bring our Back Road Boys some new adventures and maybe some new members. Our members are all in their late sixties and 70’s. Cars are 30’s and 40’s with some late models. The purpose is to enjoy our outings using our old cars as transportation.

Finally, the last two months bring us the much-celebrated holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. The normally joyous months maybe hampered a little by the pandemic but keep positive and stay safe.

Stay Tooned!

Roy converted a Dearborn Deuce into a roadster.
My first Deuce was a 5W. I like this style for a coupe.

1940 Converts are special to me. I have owned 3 of them.
