It was a football weekend at Pewsplace. Â Saturday was the big number one and two college teams fighting it out in a lackluster game. Â Sunday was full of rain and lots of good football with the Giants coming out on top against the Patriots. Â I did manage to remove the brake pedal assembly in Andre and clean it up for painting. Â I am not sure if I am going to use a power booster as Ruby stops on a dime without a booster. Fred likes the booster but I think it is more hype than anything else. Â I am not sure a 7 inch booster is going to do much for stopping the car any better than without a power assist. Â In any case I made a pattern for an adapter to use the dual Mustang disc/drum unit I have always used. Â My friend Bob needs one also so I will make up two pieces. Â He sold his coupe at Long Beach yesterday and will be starting on his 37 truck next and will use the same set up as I am using on Andre.
Dave went to the Nojoqui Falls event yesterday and sent along some nice photos. Â I don’t think it rained in Solvang as the photos look dry. Â The event attracts lots of cars from the area and the coastal region. Â The weather kept most cars in the garage in the LA area so football was a blessing to those of us stuck inside for the day. Â The week doesn’t look good weather wise so I need to plan my work days in the garage and keep focused.
John builds some really nice cars and this is his latest. Â He has been a fixture in the Michigan hot rod culture for many years. Â Always the innovator this hiboy sedan has all the tricks he is known for. Â See the JJ for details.
Phil liked the flamed blog but is very partial to his beautiful flamed Deuce roadster. The top on this car is one of the best I have seen. Â Terry Hegman, master metal craftsman, did the work and it came our perfect. Â Steve Davis did one on the “55” Deuce with the DuVall windshield back in the 80’s.
Phil likes it both ways and drive his Deuce everywhere. Â Now this is living high in a Deuce roadster. Â How do they keep their hats on?
Standard woodies make a nice looking hot rod. Â I saw this one at SB and really liked the overall theme of the build. Â The front end treatment on the standard for this year was a carry over from 38 with a small modification. Â The did not make a 38 standard woody and if you recall the 38 standard grille you can see why.
Yes, Deuce 3 windows are still popular with steel wheels and louvered hoods. Â This style will always be my favorite.
I am still a sedan delivery fan and this 46 looked good to me. Â I don’t recall seeing this one around but I like it. Â I wonder if Bobby had his 46 in attendance?
Here is another Deuce with a neat top on a DuVall windshield. Â I have not seen this one either.
The smoothed out woody looks good. Â Note the one piece windshield, frenched headlights, and absence of door handles. Â I wonder if Ruby would like the Halibrands? Â Jim is changing his to tan steelies to join the movement of steel wheels are in.
The 1939 tudor deluxe is a good looking car and this maroon example was available for all to view. Â Looks like an LS motor with all the trimmings. Â Nice car.
The 39 Deluxe coupe has nice lines. Â The windshield wiper and Â frame set it apart from the 40 coupe.
Bob has another 39 coupe for sale. Â This one is a very nice driver with a souped up flatty and Lyon blue paint. Â Give him a call if you have an interest in this coupe. Â 626-791-0707 Â ask for Bob.
Today’s Deuce in progress….dreaming!
Rex saved another one but got mixed up on the wheels. Big and littles but in reverse. Â See the JJ under Rex Rogers.
