Roadster Week

The week of the GNRS has finally arrived and I can hardly wait to have a look at this year’s contenders. I have only seen one so far which means I have many more to view come Thursday night and Friday. My guests arrive on Wednesday and we will make the rounds to visit some shops and some of our friends who have small car collections. My loving wife understands the sickness after all these years and is a real supporter of my wanderings during this event. I forget all time and schedules and hopefully see all the cars I want to. I have missed a building or two in the past but I normally manage to see the cars I like. Building 9 has race cars this year and I love to look at them as well as visit with some of the owners whom I know. My friend Tom is bringing his record holder Deuce roadster down to display as well as to visit building 4 to see the contenders. I never tire of car shows of this caliber as they attract all types of people and cars which provides me with lots of material for my blog and mind. I usually come away with a dream car that I would like to build or meet someone who has the parts I am looking for. I have been very fortunate to have established a large network of friends from all over the world who share the same passion for Hot Rods as I do. I hope to see you at the show. If you live in LA you will be able to drive your roadster to the show as the weather is going to be fantastic. Leave the top at home.

Sorry 49ers…go Broncos!

Stay Tooned!



Gary pulled his 40 convertible out in the show for the last time as the car will now reside in FL. I know he hates to see this one leave.

Originally a southern California car I am sure a new home in Fl will be a welcomed change from the MN winters.

I had a question about replacing the Vega with a 525 box and what is required. Here is the photo showing the installation. The exhaust manifold from a GM truck that dumps in the front helps with the exhaust system but a rams horn can be used also. This installation uses the long shaft but a short shaft is also available from Borgenson and others. The bolt patterns are the same and you will notice an improvement in steering ease for a heavy car.

You might be a Forty Ford lover if your desk looks like Gene’s. Thanks for the photo Gene.


You know how I love sedans and this one showed up on Facebook today. I love the Red Ram and the green wheels.

A very rare B-400 made into a hiboy hot rod. Is this a roadster, cabriolet, or convertible sedan? I suggest a convertible sedan.

Maybe Joe’s purple beauty will show up for all of us to drool over.

Walker Morrison’s roadster is another one that is high on my favorite list.

My friend built this history making roadster a few years ago and replaced the six with an Ardun head flat motor. Perfection at its best.

I will look for one like this at the show but probably won’t find one. I have a dream!

Monday’s Roadster!

From the past this one always attracts my attention. Skirts, full wheel covers and  nose high attitude makes a statement direct from the 50’s.
