Beautiful day, big turnout and lots of BS at Toppers. Only one roadster showed up… Don is the driver in the group. Way to go Don. While basketball, politics and small talk dominated the conversation we still had time to talk about cars. It is always good to bring your problems to Toppers and someone will have an opinion of how to solve it. Most of the time it works. I love the intellect that exists among the “Lunch Bunch”. Wiring is the topic lately and we all know how complex that can be. Joe and Dave have been working on Dave’s coupe and Joe was installing a new fan switch. As for me, I just started the wiring project and learned that I need a bulkhead mount for the battery cables. Friends can spend your money for you. I always come home after Toppers and get motivated to work on the cars. The nap comes first. I call the nap upholstery work since I am on the couch.
I have received some more pictures of the 3 window find and will share them with you.
Here is the 3 window find of the month. Improved photos of the car out of the trailer.[singlepic=2187]
Another view showing originality of car. Jim will make it perfect. Now lets see, coach maroon or brewster green with black fenders. SBC or flatty with T5 or 39 transmission. Big decisions to make.[singlepic=2188]
Here is Harvey’s 34 in 1954 getting ready for the build. This shot is in Downey where he grew up, raced and hung at Harvey’s Broiler on Firestone Blvd. The car looks like this today. Still sitting out back of his garage in Whittier and that’s O.K.![singlepic=2185]
I haven’t featured QC’s lately, but here is a nice one at Brizio’s. Note the clean workmanship, 40 housings with 9 inch ends and a Winters center section. Dutchman does Roy’s rear ends and they work on the street. I am building my own for the sedan I don’t have anymore.[singlepic=313]
This was a great day for me and all Deuce lovers. Thanks Ford and John Buck. Once in a lifetime.
Today’s rides to Frantic Freds…Dreaming[singlepic=2182]
Here is a sweetheart from Washington. $75K big ones and it could be yours. I love these cars with the top down, not up.[singlepic=2184]
The top down with a little rake is perfect for cruising and you can take a friend in the back seat.[singlepic=2183]
If it rains you can put the top up. As the song goes…it never rains in Southern California.
