Toppers was cooking today. Everyone was talking about how good the NSRA run was at Bakersfield. I didn’t make it but I overheard several people talking about the two 40 coupes that were outstanding. I didn’t say anything but the cars are the product of Tim in Sacramento. I know the Streetscene boys were really impressed with the cars. The flip up radio top was a big hit with most who saw it. Tim and his son put together some nice cars for us to enjoy. I am still in love with his 40 convertible he built. Way to go Tim!
I have some photos of Franks 3 window to share with you. He sure runs into some deals. The 3 window is a diamond in the rough. Finding old Fords is a very exciting hobby for hot rodders. The chase is sometimes more fun than the build. If you’re looking for a 3 window give Frank a call.
The next big event is the PRC which will take place this Saturday. I understand there is a new route this year which should prove challenging to all who participate. I will be there taking pictures of the roadsters. This is a premier event in my mind. More on Monday’s Update…

I know Tim won’t mind but the convertible is my dream. This is the only convert he has done and he did it right.[singlepic=4162]
Tim’s son has a beautiful dark blue 40 coupe that has the stance and looks of my high school ride.[singlepic=4163]
Tim’s wife is actively involved with him in building the cars. She picks out the colors as most women have better taste in colors than men do.[singlepic=4164]
The driveway always has the neighbors stopping by to see Tim’s cars. He has a factory going at his house.[singlepic=4169]
Tim has another folkstone gray coupe going together as we speak.[singlepic=4165]
Frank drug this old Ford home yesterday. Lots of potential in this real deal 3 window. The price was right![singlepic=4166]
The car has been stored since the 70’s and needs everything but don’t they all.[singlepic=4167]
An original seat is worth about what Frank paid for this car. I had three of these seats and discarded them for bucket seats. I was always sorry about that decison.[singlepic=4168]
Here is a rear shot showing the tire carrier and bumper.
Todays event…not dreaming.[singlepic=4170]
The PRC is going strong and is very well attended and managed by the Pasadena Roadster Club.[singlepic=4171]
Pat has his car finished now and surely will show up for all of us to see a beautiful old school roadster.
