Wednesday’s Wood

The Santa Barbara Woodie Club’s big event is coming up so we were talking about the show at lunch today. The show attracts over one hundred Woody Wagons due to the beautiful venue location. Over looking the Santa Barbara Beaches provides just the right setting for the old wagons. People come from all up and down the coast to enjoy the summer months in a very classy city. People who enjoying driving their Woody Wagons gather on the hilltop to view the Regattas taking place on the Pacific as well as the activities that go on for the beach goers.

Jane and I have been going to this event for as long as it has been in existence and have always had a great time with our friends. We each provide some delicious items for lunch and lots of deserts for the sweet tooth members like me. Putting you feet in the water and walking on the sandy beach is a favorite thing to do for many who venture down the hill to the beach. The very first event was held on the beach but soon the city had complaints and the event was move to the Santa Barbara City College campus. We preferred the beach but the grassy knoll works just fine.

Today we will look at some Woodie Wagons and some various Ford models I like.



Stay Tooned!

We had a discussion at lunch about how come it costs so much to build a chassis today. If you look at the before and after photos you can imagine the man hours and parts involved in Jim’s 40 Woody chassis. Every piece is hand crafted, installed, welded and made to enhance the overall design.

Soon Ryan will have Jim’s Woody in color.

Some think the 1938 Woody is not the best looking design from Ford, but this masterpiece looks good to me. The color and Sid’s interior add class to the beautiful wood.

I use the F-100 automatic column in my cars because I like the stock look and not 3″ diameter steering columns.

The 46-8 Ford Woodies are real popular and plentiful in our area.

Finding one like this to finish is a dream. come true for some. Drive and enjoy while working on the restoration.

The Teardrop trailer is quite popular with the Wagon owners and are quite functional when traveling our coast highway.

They accommodate two people for a comfy overnight stay.

Some Teardrops have full TV and music systems installed for late night listening and watching.

Probably one of my favorite Woodies is Cliff’s rig from our town.

Cliff shows up each year with his Teardrop and 40 Wagon. Time for lunch.

Any responsible Woodie owner has a set of dishes and some wine for lunch.

Most Teardrops are home built but commercial units are available.

We also like our ice cream after lunch.

Enjoy your lunch overlooking the Pacific and the white sandy beach.
