Very hot today so we all decided to go to the Junkyard for lunch. Â We had a good turnout and listened to Bob O’s stories concerning his trip to B’ville. Â He indicated the weather was very hot and after two days he was ready to come home. Â Lots of great cars at the hotel and people from all over the world were in attendance. Â I have this on my bucket list for next year but I would have to fly to SLC and drive from SLC to the event. Â I saved the date.
After lunch, we did a little bench racing in the parking lot and talked about our next ride. Â Dave has found a sedan delivery he is thinking about buying and I have located another 40 coupe. Â Remember, this is bench racing so nothing will ever come of the desires but talking is sure fun. Â I brought the leftovers to the wife and she was happy. Â I hope to finish the fuel line installation today.
The end of the month brings lots of car activities to the CA area. Â Pebble Beach in Monterey for the rich and famous, Goodguys P-Town for everyone who loves cars and the Bay area, the Primer Nationals and the OC Great Labor Day Cruise to name a few. Â I hope to take in as many as my old body will allow me.
This is the Junkyard restaurant in Simi Valley. Â Great slogan and great food.
Lots of great parking for the “Lunch Bunch”. Â Very hot today so the BS took place inside not in the parking lot.
Here is the black Aeroquip hose Orme Bros sold me for the fuel line. Â Neat stuff and very safe.
The first fuel line from the pump to the fuel filter is complete. Â I am waiting for parts for the next leg. Â My fuel pump has a 3/8 inverted flare which allows for a easy connection without an elbow.
I love this photo from Steve. Â You can drive all day in one of these coupes and still party at the Casino’s at night. Â Note front wheel fender height. Â No hub caps indicate ready to race in my book.
Frantic and Chuck put together this rust free cruiser a few years ago and it goes down the road like a new Cadillac.
John has some of the nicest rides in LA. Â He has owned this one for many years and I love the stance and Royal Maroon wheels.
A very nice rendition of a 34 hiboy roadster from Rory.
A Hemi powered 47 Woody is not your normal powerplant for one of the lumber wagons but this one is special.
Thanks to Dave I located the alternator bracket I like. Â Total Performance has them available through Speedway.
The Guide 682-C headlights are going to be out of style by the time I start driving Lucy. Â I still like the look.
The same car had a shortened rear pan which I sort of like. Â Maybe some louvers would cut down the bulkiness.
I think the Airstream looks a little large for the cabriolet but it sure makes a cute picture.
Where do I park? Â Parking at Roy’s Shop Party is limited even if you are driving a roadster.
Today’s 5 window …..dreaming!
I must admit I still like the Halibrand wheels on hot rods. Â This little coupe was on the point at Roy’s a few years ago.
