The big weekend is over and it seems all the people had a great time. I am sure sorry I missed it but maybe next year I can get back on track. I received several photos of the GG’s event and thanks to all who sent me their favorites. My viewers seem to like the same type of cars that I do so it makes it easy for me to select the cars to feature.
I spent the weekend working on the sedan delivery, Andre, and removed all the body mounting bolts. I will need to have a pizza and beer party to lift it off the chassis. Maybe I will serve beer after the task is completed.
The Labor Day Cruise and the Ventura Nationals are next so…
Everyone like this Deuce Vicky. A complete resto rod, as in the 70’s, is still a very popular look for some folks (me included). Upgrade the driveline and leave everything else the way Henry made it. Cool ride.
The Deuce Vicky has the spare tire carrier attached which is lost on most hot rods. I left mine on my 3 window but later removed it and installed a luggage rack. Cool guys did not have either on their hot rods.
While we are discussing Vicky’s how about a rare 33 that was in Steve’s booth. Steve had just finished installing torsion bar suspension on the outstanding example of the Ford Victoria.
Vicky’s have the distinctive rear bustle that made them a classic choice for many owners. I love the black wire wheels and the overall understated elegance of the car. Ted has a stable full of beautiful cars.
No show would be complete without a nice 32 three window coupe. The steelies and stance make these rides some of the best.
Not to be left out, Don drove his 32 hiboy for all of us to drool over. This car has the look and the proper components. I noticed he has added radial tires for the long haul. I suspect the wide whites are in the garage on the wall.
Ray from Bend always builds a great car whether it is a Deuce or a Forty. This little pickup was a big hit with 40 fans. He also likes the CMG color. His partner in crime, Orville, brought his 40 and it found a new home with the same owner who purchased his sedan. Now this would be a nice pair to have in the garage.
The new owners of the Roadster Shop have been turning out some really neat rides. Steve loved this Speed 33 with the track nose. Watch for a future feature in the Rodder’s Journal. Note drilled bones… the latest fad from the retro rods.
Brian has parted with his top notch 40 sedan and is now a Sedan Delivery owner. This little beauty was originally from SO-CAL and is stock with a Columbia and 12 volt starting and lighting system. I wonder if that will help him in those cold Reno winters.
When the day is over and the prom queen wants a cool ride home I know she would always choose this bright red Ardun powered coupe of Bruce’s over my primered rat.
