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.
Swap meet favorite 34 roadster. He had some nice parts for sale.
Suede 36 looked like a lot fun to drive. I bet he comes to the PRC meet next month.
Same goes for these two guys. A roadsters are popular at the PRC.
Hemi’s for sale. I didn’t ask as I would have purchased one for sure. I think they both sold.
The Jalopy Journal’s pick for best roadster this year. This is a very nicely done car.
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.
My buddy sent me a picture of his custom hardtop. Dave and I had these cars at the same time and showed them everywhere.
