I receive a lot of questions about Toppers. Toppers is a local pizza joint that our “lunch bunch” goes to every Tuesday. The late Joe Mayall named each day of the week for a local restaurant we visited. Over the years Toppers is the only one that we have stuck with. Today, we had a great crowd and lots of good conversation. When you are retired it is great to get out of the house and meet with a group of people who truly enjoy old cars. If you are ever in Simi Valley on Tuesday’s stop in and say hello…. located on the corner of Erringer and Cochran.
I took the day off as the weather turned cold. I just watched the Olympics and took a long nap. I did receive some photos of Bob’s new 3 window after he added some new wheels and tires. The car is super solid and will make someone a nice hot rod. These cars are only available to the well healed individual who can afford the real deals. Just think many of you sold these for a few thousand dollars many years ago.
Tomorrow I am headed out to look at a seat for Andre…
The 3 window as it arrived at Bob’s. Nice piece but required a new look to satisfy Bob and his crew.[singlepic=3829]
New tires and wheels plus some detailing have the little coupe looking great.[singlepic=3830]
Front view in Bob’s very picturesque driveway which has been the background for hundreds of cars he has owned over the years.[singlepic=3831]
The side profile is a wonderful view of the Deuce 3 window. Henry and Murray Body Company should be proud of this classic design.[singlepic=3832]
I am a storage lot scrounger. I find lots of great cars that are put away and forgotten. This one finally rusted away but the storage lot would not reveal how to contact the owner. What a shame. Andre was found in a storage lot which is now a new commercial building. Thanks for progress.[singlepic=3833]
Myron, who was at Toppers today loves his 47 Ford convertible. Frantic built this one for him a few years ago. Like all of us he sold this one and built a Deuce hiboy roadster. Boys and their toys.[singlepic=3834]
Myron would like a nice coupe to drive so his wife would go with him. I need to talk to him.
Local 3 window that is a very nice car. The car has been primered for as long as I have lived here.
