Thursday’s Thoughts

I am reaching back to my younger years and scanning some pictures of the cars I liked growing up. My memory is not as good as it once was so if you see something wrong let me know and I will correct it. I have people from all over the world reading my blog so I like to be as accurate as possible.

I sincerely believe that a lot of people think about selling their cars and starting a new project during the off season. We don’t have an off season weather wise, but the main events are not until next year. Selling your car that you have owned for a long time is very hard to do. Seller remorse sets in immediately. The money you receive usually just adds more zero’s to the household budget and dwindles away to things your wife has always wanted. She deserves them so that is O.K. The project you are looking for is always a few thousand more than you can afford so you settle for something lesser and know you can make it perfect. Does that sound familiar. I am there right now. I want a different project, one that runs and I can tinker with when I am able. In order to do that I need to make room in the garage and the budget. Andre will never be sold, so the roadster or the sedan project must go away. I have not owned these cars for very long so it won’t be hard.

Finding the right project or finished project is relatively easy in today’s market. Several great cars have come on the market as they do every year about this time. So what do you do? I am looking for something that would satisfy my wants for a hiboy, sedan and roadster all in one car. Lobeck did this a few years ago and built a Deuce sedan delivery hiboy that I really liked. I have not seen it lately but I know it is in Orange County somewhere. Paul Beck in Michigan did the back door as he did on Lombardo’s delivery. You can buy the package today but back then Paul made everything himself. Nice work.

I am sure I will have a new running ride by next year but in the meantime I can continue to dream.

Stay Tooned!



Steve is putting this nice truck on the market. SO-CAL history, SBC to stock drive line, new upholstery and wiring.


Jim is needing some assistance in selling his toys. Here are two of them. RPU with Cad and 5 speed, Roadster with hemi. Please let me know if you want a contact number.


See JJ today for the amazing 5 window the Limeworks has brought back to life. Great story.


Period perfect flathead by Taylor engines. Note block Edelbrock heads.


Slick little 34 coupe at P-Town. He parks the same place each year and adds to the car. Numbers added this year.


Glenn has the SD back on the road after acquiring from Lou. This is a Hot Rod cover car from Sunland. It is nice to see it back on the road. Beautiful CA scenery along the coast.

Today’s rides…dreaming.


Jet Black Deuce hiboy on ebay. Nice looking early ride with late model dependence.


SO-CAL car owned by Ron and later by Narod. This body is perfect with metal work by Steve Davis and Scott Knight. Chop is 2 1/2 in the front and 2 in the rear. The rear window has been centered for clear vision. The top was also filled as that was the style when this car was built. Narod installed a blown Donavan but the car now has a crate motor. Nice ride.
