Some light rain dampened the weekend for car shows but we still had a nice showing in the Simi Town Center. Â The day cleared up and the wife and I headed to the show. The Cops are the main sponsors of the show so they had some of their cars on display. Â Funny, I never thought I would see Cops who liked Hot Rodders. Â In my day, we were their target for giving tickets. Â My little town is full of retired Policeman and many are car guys. Â I support the show and took a few photos for you.
I had planned on taking Ruby to Fred’s today but it is still raining in Simi and Woodies don’t like the rain. Â I broke down and went to the new “Office” this morning instead of Fred’s and the crowd was light due to the rain. Â I don’t know why people can’t drive in the rain but I saw 4 accidents on my way over and back. Â I can’t imagine those bias belt tires in the rain but I am sure they slide around. Â I do like the looks on early cars but not on the everyday drivers.
My wonderful talented son, the graphic designer, gave me an early Father’s Day present. Â He created a new Pewsplace logo that I can use on some wearables. Â I hope to have some shirts very shortly. Â He has a lot of artistic talent of which I have none. Thanks Chris.
Ron has sent me some photos of his owner built top on his Deuce. Â Can you imagine seeing this on the 210 freeway at 6:00 am on the way to Pomona?
The rear view shows his approach to building the top. Â He likes the exposed wood bows and irons which he reworked to fit the chopped windshield.
Nice little Deuce roadster with a different style top using Gates irons and BoB’s top design. Â Albert did the top in a classic white vinyl.
A very nice 54 wagon was in attendance. Â Alan built this one a few years ago and sold it to a young man who drives it everywhere.
Billy loves his Model A coupe which used to be Bob o’s. Â He has finished the car with all the best early stuff he could find. Â What no flathead!
Bob O’s little great grand daughters looked cute standing in front of his chopped Mercury.
1940 Ford pickups will always be in style in my book, Â Sitting just right this primered example only needs the bumpers to be complete.
You can’t beat a black roadster with a black top and maroon wheels. Â This Utah based beauty will be at the LARS for you to admire. Â This is the Bop Top version with a SO-CAL windshield.
Here is my Father’s Day present from my son. Â I really like and it should look good on shirts and hats.
I wonder where the Bay Area Roadster Club will be parked this year? Â Roy is a member so maybe they will be next to his booth. Â Are you getting excited…I am!
Mo’s Deuce roadster has been completely restored by some of the best craftsman in the business. Â This is at Pebble Beach a few years ago. Â I hope Jack brings in out this year for us to admire. Â My friend Don went to school with Mo in the LA area.
