The weather cooperated for the weekend and the Moorpark Roaming Relics car show was another great event. Lots of cars and people combined with super weather put everyone in a good mood. I arrived early and Frantic, Bobo, Bruce and I had breakfast at the Cactus Patch which is an annual tradition for most who attend this show. I walked until I could walk no more then headed home to watch some football. The Raiders were unbelievable against the Broncos. The score was hard to believe.
The Moonshine Festival was also this weekend in Georgia and I should have some photos ready by tomorrow. My friend Andy and Jim always attend but Jim forgot his camera. The is the gathering of all the forties that used to haul shine in the days as well as a few more always loved forty Fords.
My daughter came home late as her flight was delayed due to the weather in San Francisco. The rains came later on in our area so the trip to the airport was something at 9:00 pm last night. It is always nice to see your family. My daughter has always liked Woodies so she was really thrilled to sit in Walt’s Woody Wagon. The rain prevented a ride, but she got one this morning when the rain subsided. She used to go to all the Wavecrest shows with me and would talk to the owners even as a little girl. She thanks you Walt.
Tomorrow is garage day so…
It seems if your first name is Frank you have a lot of luck finding Deuces. This TX beauty is now in NM in Frank’s garage and will be stunning when complete. Chopped 4 inches with a straight no rust body means he will hold on to this one for sometime. Maybe the PRC will open the run to coupes and sedans. Just a hint!
Did I mention the coupe is fully upholstered. What a find this coupe would be for someone not named Frank,,,maybe Lynn.
The headliner is also complete and adds to the period look. Maybe some piping would have looked more correct?
How about a real SW panel in a stock Deuce dash…this looks great in an early build style car.
My first encounter with this roadster was a few years ago at the LARS. I fell in love with the profile and thought I had found my roadster. The price was out of my reach but I went home and ordered a Wescott to build my own. The top on this car really is right on the mark. Neil could make one to duplicate this look if you wanted him to…right Neil!
Tom has this real deal Vicky for sale if anyone is interested. I have his number if you would like more information, send me and email. Looks nice in the photos. Ford powered.
For my money, this was the best car at Moorpark. The owner just had Lance do the period correct interior to go with the Americans.
Everything looked very nice and clean and smelled fresh. I prefer this non split bench seat in a coupe.
I featured this car previously and had several people send in comments. The car is a magnet when it shows up on the street.
When the owner starts this 502 everything shakes including the driver. Stand back, pop the clutch and watch the smoke from the burning rubber.
As I was leaving this chopped (2 inches) 5 window was a late arrival from Bakersfield. He comes every year with lots of patina this car is just a plain Hot Rod that gets my juices flowing.
For Sale on the Fordbarn this beauty also lights my fire. How could you not like the convertible, completely stock and ready for someone to put it on the road. The car came from the Ken Lay collection.
