Monday’s Update

We were blessed with great weather this past weekend and I was able to make it over to Johnny Carson Park for the Kiwanis car show on Sunday. They had a great turnout and the pancake breakfast was fantastic. I roamed around till about noon and then headed home. I always like the shows held at JCP as the venue provides a very nice grassy area for displaying the cars. One thing about this particular show is that it is open to all types of cars and you can see about anything you like. The early hot rods are not so prevalent, but there are always a few you haven’t seen that show up. Burbank is full of hot rods from the past but usually don’t show up until the Throttlers show in the fall. I am fortunate that I love all types of automobiles and can appreciate the history of each one I see.

The NSRA show in Bakersfield also was going on this past weekend and Dave sent in some photos of his trip. He just got home from Austin and headed out again. I should have a complete update on the show on Wednesday’s blog.

I am off to secure some parts for Andre’s chassis.

Stay Tooned!


A stock appearing Deuce roadster was heading up the Deuce show. You don’t often see them done in this style. I believe this was a Henry model.

You will always find a Willys or two at JCP. This one had all the right stuff to drive it on the street not the race track.

One person owns both of these wonderful shoebox customs. The sedan is a 1949 and the convertible is a 1951 which is my favorite.

From the rear, each car has its own personality. Take a close look and you can spot the differences.

I have always liked the 51 converts done in a mild resto rod style. This one was perfect.

From the rear the 51 was really nice with a full custom interior and SBF engine and late model running gear.

George brought his very rare 56 Chevy convertible to the show for us to admire. You need to see this one in person.

The factory equipped dual quad set up complete with air cleaner requires a second look.

Parked under the shade trees this cool Mercury was surrounded by other chopped Mercuries. Again, Burbank has some cool customs.

I am a sucker for stock mint black 40 Ford pickup trucks. I have not seen this one before and really admired it for being left alone. I could make this a nice daily driver with a dropped axle and nothing more.  Bob-O would chop it.

 Today’s Deuce Coupe!

NSRA Bakersfield had a lot of Deuces and Dave liked this one. Just think, you can purchase a brand new 5 window body today and build your dream. Registration is easy, right!

  19. I want to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from this difficulty.
    Right after browsing through the the net and meeting ways which
    are not productive, I thought my entire life was well over.

    through the post is a critical case, and those that could have negatively damaged
    my career if I hadn’t noticed your web page. Your own natural talent and kindness in maneuvering a
    lot of stuff was very useful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if
    I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I can also at this point
    look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the impressive and amazing
    guide. I won’t hesitate to propose the website to anyone
    who requires counselling on this matter.

    as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through,
    however I actually believed you would have something useful
    to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something
    you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

  23. Hi Lynn, Interesting note on the 56 air cleaner for 2 fours. This is referred to as the bat wing air cleaner.
    It was a popular item for all GM 2 four barrel cars.
    I bought one for a 57 Cadillac 3 years ago at LARS because it seemed like a key puzzle piece for a dual four car. These were even made for Mopar in the mid 50’s. Because they were all similar in shape and build I would have to assume they were built by the same supplier such as Delco, or a similar supplier to the big 3 mfg’s. This style air cleaner vanished with the demise of the oil bath air cleaner. Virtually impossible to reproduce at any reasonable cost it is an item to be valued by all dual quad officionado’s.
    My purchase at LARS netted me a cool grand. Google bat wing air cleaner and enjoy the education. Still tuned, Gary
