We had a light turnout today due to the rain. I spent the entire morning doing nothing and so far have done about the same. I prefer sunny days but we need the rain. I have received lots of comments on yesterdays blog and I thank all of you for thinking of us in CA. I know we will survive but it make take a few years which I don’t have.
Tom in Oregon, a long time friend and Hot Rodder, has finished his 34 “RAT” and has it on the road. He sure looks like he is having fun in his retirement. When I first met Tom in Danville he was driving a Yosemite Green 40 convert with orange wheels. I loved that car and he use to pick me up to go to the Danville Dukes breakfast at Max’s. We had a good time together and later both relocated to the LA area. Tom likes 34 Fords and is also building a 34 truck extended cab. This is a good sickness to have in Oregon where car people are welcomed.
It appears the rain is here to stay so I will have to remain in the garage dreaming rather than working. I seem to do that in good weather also. Andre is calling me so I must leave you now.
Ray has the best looking 5 window around. Lots of maroon paint and louvers make this hiboy a standout. Chop is just right.
The side profile makes you want a 5 window just like this one. Lobeck tires and wheels are still popular today.
A deck lid full of louvers and some big meats say Hot Rod to me.
Tom is looking like a young punk in this recent photo. All he needs is his cigarettes rolled up in his T-shirt. I love this car. He has worked long and hard to achieve this look for his coupe. Nice job!
Tom and his friend Jane are enjoying themselves in this early hot rod. Having fun is what it is all about.
Please note the Winters QC Tom installed with a model A spring. I wonder how loud the whine is…not from Jane… but the QC.
Frank has been busy removing the dual sidemounts and making the Cabriolet look like a hot rod. I need to go over and see him.
Here is another Lobeck creation. He can build the car I like with his eyes closed. Barry has the touch and the team to make it happen.
Gene should have the body off and painted by now. He is a fanatic when it comes to accuracy of mounting parts on his tudor.
Tom being well over six feet tall had to add a few inches to his 34 truck or section his legs he made the right choice on this one.
