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!

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. Thank you for the blog post. Thomas and I
    have been saving for a new guide on this subject matter and your blog post has made us all
    to save all of our money. Your opinions really responded all our concerns.

  3. My spouse and i were now excited Michael managed to round up his homework using the
    precious recommendations he came across from your very own blog.
    It is now and again perplexing to just possibly be giving out facts that many
    others could have been making money from. We take into account
    we now have the blog owner to be grateful to because of that.
    Those illustrations you made, the straightforward website navigation, the friendships your site
    make it possible to engender – it’s mostly incredible, and it’s really leading
    our son in addition to our family imagine that that matter is entertaining, which is pretty pressing.

  4. 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.

    Being alive devoid of the answers to the issues you’ve sorted out
    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.

  5. The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me as much
    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.

  6. Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?
    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary daily.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
    aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  8. 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
