Late with this report as my old back gave out yesterday. I will make this short. The 40 Ford Day was great. A good turnout of 40 Fords and other Hot Rods, make this a must attend event for me. My friend Bob and I drove down to Orange County and arrived around 7:00 am to a lot full of 40 Fords. We grabbed our cameras and water bottles to ensure a hydrated day. Very Hot in Southern California these days….100 plus.
Have a look.
Jim’s top notch beige 40 coupe. He wins best coupe most of the time. Prolific builder.[singlepic=1238]
Stock 40 convert, nice restoration. The price was $85K. No takers.[singlepic=1239]
There was a time when red coupes were the rage. Now black seems to be the color. Both of these were 80 built cars.[singlepic=1240]
Unusual Mint green 40 Woody. New wood and interior that looked very fresh.[singlepic=1241]
C&G Auto Parts out of Escondido brought their new 40 delivery to the show. Air bags and all the trimmings.[singlepic=1242]
Frantic Fred built this Wescott 40 convertible. Fred does some nice work. The car is a greenish gray with all the comforts of home.[singlepic=1243]
Chris has had this car done awhile. He built a 40 convert with a 39 rear section. Very well done.[singlepic=1244]
Home mad trophies are highly sought after. If you want to be in contention, you need to have your hood open.
Out of Lake Arrowhead was this wonderful custom being built by a metal man with a passion. The car is unfinished but has some really neat tricks. This will be my feature car on Friday.
