We certainly have roadster weather today and the rest of the week looks perfect for driving that roadster to Pomona. Â They don’t have to be perfect to have fun just point it to the Pomona Fairgrounds and have a wonderful weekend at the LARS. Â Roadsters grow on you over the years. Â You always think everyone has a Deuce hiboy roadster and I don’t want one for that reason. Â I tell you that is no excuse. Â If you don’t want a Deuce try another year or model roadster they all are lots of fun. Â I am sure their will be over 800 roadsters to look at and many of them are for sale. Â Stay away from the roadsters with the gold leaf painted for sale signs or the permanently labeled windows indicating the car is for sale. Â I always look for the hand written small piece of paper on the window or seat with phone numbers. Â Most of these sellers are looking for new ride if they could just sell their roadster. Â I have seen some pretty good deals at the roadster show in previous years. Â This may be your year….bad economy, lost job, divorce, reducing collection (not sure about these guys) or any other reason you can think of for selling your car. Â We have a couple in our gang that would like to sell a car and I hope they find a buyer. Â Sunday is the best day to purchase a car as the price normally goes down by 10:00 AM. Â Good luck to the buyers and sellers.
I am keeping my stuff in the garage and will enjoy walking around and looking at the cars and seeing old friends. Â I will be wearing a Pewspalce T-shirt so please stop me and introduce yourself. Â I would love to meet you.
This will be the last post until next Monday.
A very nice maroon hiboy with blown hemi will start your day off in the right direction.
The laid back windshield is not for everyone but some roadsters will have them for you to discuss.
Lynn will by missed this year as well as his open house. Â I know he is building a new 33 somewhere.
Jeff always has his Moal built 29 track roadster staged early on Friday. Â This one is perfect.
Not all roadsters are Deuces. Â This little T really was sweet and probably scoots down the hi-way.
Primer is O.K. in the preferred parking but not in the main roadster display. Â This is a Wescott body and looks fine to me. Â Enjoy the ride not bragging rights.
Flatheads are sure popular at the roadster show. Â Note the two contrasting styles. Â Bob (on the right) is telling the visitor about his Boyd phaeton from 1984.
This 34 Cab is for my friend John in Canada who cannot make it this year. Â I think Mike Chrisman built this one a few years ago. Â John’s is not chopped.
Full fendered and smoothed out is the 80’sand 90’s look that some folks still prefer. Â A model 40 looks good no matter what style you choose.
I think you can find about any style you like at the LARS. Â Talk to the owners and have them tell you about their roadster. Â You will learn quickly what is important to the owner.
Tubs are not as popular as they used to be, but Roy can change that if you step up for one. Â This is beautiful 35 that he built a couple of years ago.
