California has two great months for roadster shows. In January we have the Grand National Roadster Show and in June we have the LA Roadster Show. Both shows have lots of roadsters to view and admire. I have been intrigued by convertibles and roadsters since I was 16 and never lost the love of top-down cars.
The Deuce has always been first on my list, but the 33 has grown on me over the years to be my personal favorite to drive. This is due to the more comfortable cockpit and 112″ wheelbase. I also prefer roadsters without fenders. I was raised that a roadster is about motor and performance. Racing was the issue in my early days and a fast roadster was one not to be messed with on the street or strip.
I am without a roadster this year but have friends that I can ride in while I work on the Woodie. I think every old guy who grew up in the ’50s loves a roadster and would like on in his garage. How about you!
