Toppers Tuesday

Cold again today, but the weather lady promises it will be warm again soon. I spent yesterday working on the 48 convertible and accomplished a lot. The removal of the stainless side trim fasteners was quite a job. I had to grind off the t-nuts on about 50 fasteners. Now I can take the fenders to the stripper and have them stripped and primered. I want to have the parts ready for storage. Make a plan and stick to the plan. Old GM training.

Some of my viewers have sent me some real nice old photos and I will share them with you today. I love old pictures, black and white and young looking people. Today is Toppers, but due to the weather it will be a light turn out in roadsters. Funny how roadster owners are fuzzy about getting cold. I think one owner had an experience on New Years Day that he wished he had taken his coupe.

I will be short today as I have lots of errands to do for the wife.

Stay Tooned!



Full fendered 34 roadster with all the period correct accessories.


32 Hiboy with nice top and white walls. Note top goes uphill not down like today’s tops.


1934 Roadster with DuVall windshield skirts and white walls.


Another one in a lighter color. Note front bumper on both roadsters.


Do you know this famous car? Hint SO-CAL Speed Shop owner.


I found this book on ebay. I have been interested in flamed 40 tudors lately. Steve has influenced my thinking.


The real McCoy from Bob in San Diego. The car is still around but is plain and not recognizable to many.


Now for the truly “Dare to be different crowd” a chopped 40 tudor out of Roberts Rod Shop in Toledo. I have know Gary and his brother for many years.



This is my favorite this week. Brizio built Regency Red 3 window with baby hemi.
