Huge weekend for the Deuce lovers. The coveted Riddler award was presented to a 1932 Ford built by Alan Johnson. The car started life as a Tudor and ended up as a restyled B400 with all the glitter. I actually like the car, as it is a nice blend of superb craftsmanship with an old style flavor. The GNRS and the Riddler were both won by Deuces. You can see all the cars on HotRodHotLine.com. Big Al did an outstanding job of taking the pictures.
The Hot Rod Reunion was this weekend in Bakersfield and I hope to have some pictures this week. I did not attend this year as you must be able to walk a great deal to see the cars. The Valley Woody’s also had a meet in Visilia this weekend and my friend Walt attended. He may send me some photos. Somehow a Woody meet without an Ocean is not the same.
The season has started in California so I better go out in the garage and start pushing. Brake lines are next.
The 2009 Riddler award winner. A beautiful Deuce B400, sort of, that was built by Johnson’s Rod Shop in Alabama. Workmanship was first cabin. This young builder keeps turning out outstanding cars. Congratulations Alan.[singlepic=2105]
My last 40 coupe coming home from the find. The neighbors love seeing all these relics I haul home. They sometimes write letters to the home owners association.[singlepic=2106]
A local car that uses a SO-CAL frame, 327 with a 4 speed and a straight non dropped early axle. Nice dependable ride.[singlepic=2107]
Famous photo of Ray Brown’s Deuce in the snow. Wow that must have been an experience.[singlepic=2108]
Poteet’s new 5 window from Rolling Bones. They have the look of early hot rods and the ride to go with them.[singlepic=2109]
Another pre-war look with a Brookville body. ASC rails with stock crossmember welded in by Sqeek Bell in Bakersfield. The top has the look of the era.

Brookville Deuce, Washington Blue, Tacoma Cream wires and Bob Top headed down the highway to heaven.
