Monday’s Update

My wife and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary this past weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara with about 100 other Woody lovers.  The morning drive was beautiful but really foggy and damp.  We met up with Walt and Lorraine and arrived in time for a wonderful parking spot.  The SBCC has a large grassy field with lots of room for everyone with room to spare.  You can set up your pop-ups and enjoy a day at the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The weather warmed up after lunch and we left after the surf board drawing.  Unlike last year the drive home was superb.  No traffic to speak of and the car ran flawlessly up and back which is about a 200 mile trip.  Thanks Walt and Lorraine for sharing our anniversary with us and a special thanks to the Santa Barbara Woody Club for hosting the event.

I have received a lot of photos from Bonneville, Mike McKennett Restorations & Reproductions and Forties by Bedford that I will share with you this week.  I have also completed more work on Lucy’s engine installation and documented my progress.  Thanks to all who continue to provide Pewsplace with photos of their adventures in the Hot Rod world.

Stay Tooned!


Pop-Ups were set up quickly by the Woody owners and make a perfect cover for the day.  Ruby was loving it in the grass.

Walt drove his 37 this year and was a magnet for photographers attending the event as well as many students.

Ruby was also admired by many and received many complimentary comments from participants.

This was the winner of the best forties woody award from the SBWC.  The car was really very nice and featured lots of trick components, one of which was an FI crate motor disguised as an early Corvette unit.

Seldom seen, the 38 Ford Woody makes a very nice car and this one was super clean with a modern driveline.

The morning crowd started to fill up the grassy knoll and you can see how much room is available to park your Woody.

This is Gray Baskerfield’s brothers 40 Woody that has been done for years.  Pete and Jake did the chassis many years ago.  The color is BRG not black as it looks in this photo.  One of my all time favorites.

There were several nice 1940 Ford Woodies in attendance at the meet.  Most were hot rods with modern suspensions, but there were a few stockers also.  I like both types.

Parked directly behind us was this very nice 1950 Woody with a late model Ford driveline and super nice wood.  Many people like the 49-51 as they don’t have all the squeaks and rattles of the earlier Woodies.

The trip home was really nice and Jane took this picture at 70 mph somewhere below Santa Barbara.  The Pacific Coast Highway has long been the place for cruising.

Today’s Pit Car….dreaming!

Don was having a ball at Bonneville in this pit car.  Looks like the way to get around to me.

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., but sup?o?e you added something to possibly get a person’s attention? I m?an Monday’s Update | Pewsplace is a little
    plain. You should loo? at Yahoo’s front pa?e and note how th?yy create

    how much t?me I had spent for this informat?on! Thanks!

  44. M? programmer is trying to convince me tto m?ve to .net from
    PHP. ? have always disliiked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s t?yiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several
    websites for about a yesar and am concerned about switching to another ?latform.
    I have hea?d very good things about Is there a way I can im?ort all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  45. ?ou really maske it sewm so easy with ?our presentation but I find this matter to ?e actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It se?mm? ttoo coomplex annd very bro?d for
    me. I’m looking forwar? for your next post, ?’ll try to get the hang of it!

  46. Hi ther? would you minjd sharing which blog platform you’re
    wo?king with? I’m planning to start my own blog iin thee near future but I’m having a
    tough time choosing between Bl?gEngine/W?rdpre?s/B2evolutionand Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking forr something unique.
    P.S Apo?ogies for ?eing off-top?c but I had to ask!

  47. Howdy, i r?ad yohr blog fropm time to time and i o?n a similar one and i wass just ?uri?us if
    ?ou get a lot of spam remarks? If so howw do yoou re?uce it,
    any lugin or anything you can suggest? I ?et so much lately it’s driving me insane so any as??stance is ve?? much app?eciated.

  48. I’ve ben bro?sing online mor than 4 hoirs today, yyet I never found any
    interesting article likle yours. It’s pretty worth ?nough for me.

    Personally, if all sit? owners and bloggers made go?d content as yyou ?id, the net wijll be a lot more useful than ever bef?re.

  49. Heya!I und?rstand this is s?mewhat off-topic but I ha? to ?sk.
    Doe? building a well-established bl?g like yours require
    a lot oof work? I am comp?tely new to running a blog ho?ever I
    do write in my diary ev?ryday. I’d like to sta?t a
    bl?g so I ?ann share my personal experience and feelings
    online. Please let me know if youu have any? kind of ideas or t?p?
    foor b?and new aspiring blo?gers. Appreciate it!

  50. My brother ?ecommended I would possib?y l?ke this
    web?ite. He was tot?lly right. This put ?p tr??y made
    my day. You cann’t believ? simply how a lot time I
    h?d spent for this information! Thank you!

  51. I think that ?hat you posted made a lot of sense.
    However, consid?r this, what if you typed a catchier ?ost title?I ain’t suggesting your informatiopn isn’t solid, but w?at if you added
    a poost title that grabbe? folk’s attention? I mean M?nday’s Update | Pewsw?lace is
    kinda vanilla. You ought t?o peek at Yahoo’s front paf? and
    see how they create news he??lines to grab viewers
    interested. You might add a relaed video or a picture or two to grab re?ders
    interested about everything’ve wr?tten. Just my opinion, it would bring yoyr posts a l?ttle liveli?r.

  52. F?ntastic beat ! I wish to appr?ntice even as you amend ?ou? website, how can i subscfribe for a weblog website?
    ?he account hel?ed me ? acceptable ?eal. I had
