It was a beautiful weekend in LA for cars. Sunday was the Harbor Run in Ventura which turned out to be a great event. I also like Corvettes so I attended the Red Line Corvette Show in Thousand Oaks. I used to be into Corvettes when I was younger, but they are really hard to fit into, so I switched to Hot Rods. All in all in was a great weekend seeing a lot of old friends and old cars.
I have also been working on the roadster, so I will include some pictures of the top brackets I made. Now for a trip to the upholstery shop for some tan material.
Beautiful setting for the event. I have always like the ocean and the serenity it brings to me. I can sit and stare at the waves all day long. Maybe that is why I don’t get anything done.[singlepic=1495]
SO-CAL built 5 window from a few years ago. This is a very, very nice car. BA 327 with a Halibrand and SO-CAL detail. The paint is absolutely perfect. The owner has had this car for many years.[singlepic=1497]
Very nice sounding 327 with three carbs and a 350 turbo.[singlepic=1500]
You can always tell a Gabe interior… Perfect. Tri-C made the trick tilt column. Dash is a SO-CAL panel that looks correct.[singlepic=1501]
I seemed to be drawn to the Jalopy’s. This was a local Ventura car that showed up early.[singlepic=1503]
Brizio built Hiboy has been around for a long time, but still looks good. I believe Roy built this one in the eighties.[singlepic=1498]
Fat Jack built 33 Phaeton with lacquer checking all over the car. The owner parks in the same place every year. You don’t see many Phaetons any more….too much wind for the wife.[singlepic=1499]
More and more Model A coupes are showing up. Where I grew up this was considered a “Deuce Coupe” as our town only had one real 5 window Hot Rod.

Top bracket for rear hold down on the new top.
Really chopped Tudor from Santa Barbara was looking good sitting in the shade. The top is chopped 4 inches.
