As we approach the GNRS gala event I find myself planning all the places to visit during the week. Most shops will host some type of event or don’t mind if you stop by for a visit. Set up day is Thursday so I figure Wednesday would be a good day to hit the places near Pomona or down in Orange County. I know some of the back East people are anxious to arrive in CA early to warm up and enjoy the cars that are being built. I have my favorites and they let me take pictures of the projects. This promises to be a good year even with the economy still in a slump.
I did get a line on a sedan delivery rear bumper but have not contacted the person yet. I know I can find one to copy or purchase. I have all the remaining parts and have not searched for any new items in a while. Lyn in SD has some on eBay that have come way down in price. She had a 1940 SD for over 30 years. Nice lady.
Today is a great weather day so I better get back out in the garage and make something happen…
One choice for a motor is the 327 SBC with Camel Hump heads. I am not an orange fan, but Krylon can fix anything.[singlepic=3614]
Steve’s beauty would look good in Andre if I am forced back to a flathead by the CARB.[singlepic=3616]
How about a SBC disguised as and early Olds. Olds has been out of business for a few years so maybe this would work.[singlepic=3617]
Another JF photo of a wrecked Deuce. No wonder they are so rare. Again, I hope no one was hurt.[singlepic=3618]
This is from Paul at SS magazine. He knows I like these cars. Forty front end with 39 headlights look good on this convertible sedan. A very high end sedan from Tracy, CA.[singlepic=3619]
This is my neighbors wife’s car. The car is for sale if anyone is interested, please let me know. The car is very nice, MII, nine inch, 350/350 and a stainless exhaust system…not cheap.[singlepic=3620]
Please count the number of cylinders and let me know what I can put this in.[singlepic=3621]
Now your talking… a 327 in a Deuce. Bob has an Offy in his other car. I think they burn clean…don’t they?
Tom’s beauty at Roy’s. This has to be one of the nicest 40’s built in recent years. Tom has the tenacity to put a pile of pieces together without a scratch and the end result is perfect. Mohair interior with MII, 350/400 and a nine inch. You have to see this one.
