Great weekend. Saturday’s Trompers Swap Meet was small but a nice gathering of hot rodders and parts. Bob and I headed out early and quickly walked the show and then headed to Pasadena for a wonderful breakfast at Russells. This is the place for breakfast in Pasadena. I was back home before noon. Alan was coming to pickup up the 48 convert so I was very busy the rest of the day. I hated to see the car go, but the wife was happy for all the room we now have in the garage. I will have to purchase a car soon or she will get used to the extra space.
Sunday, being Easter was not supposed to be a work day, but I managed to watch the Masters all day and work on the Deuce frame. I also had time to scan some of my early cars I talked about on Friday. Dave, my high school buddy, who just happens to live not far from me, sent me some pictures of his Chevy. I think he is building a Deuce pickup now. The sickness never goes away. I can live with that.
Here are some pictures.
Sad day when the 48 left. Alan will make it a nice one. I plan on stopping by and watching the progress. He is fast.[singlepic=2246]
Swap meet favorite 34 roadster. He had some nice parts for sale.[singlepic=2247]
Suede 36 looked like a lot fun to drive. I bet he comes to the PRC meet next month.[singlepic=2248]
Same goes for these two guys. A roadsters are popular at the PRC.[singlepic=2249]
Hemi’s for sale. I didn’t ask as I would have purchased one for sure. I think they both sold.[singlepic=2251]
The Jalopy Journal’s pick for best roadster this year. This is a very nicely done car.[singlepic=2250]
Chrome louvers on the hood. How do they do that? Chrome the hood first and paint.
My first car in high school. 53 Chevy with the custom treatment. I loved this one at lot. I kept it through College and then sold it to my buddy who totaled it in a week.[singlepic=2253]
My buddy sent me a picture of his custom hardtop. Dave and I had these cars at the same time and showed them everywhere.
