Simple things in life can cause me a lot of frustration. Â I have been working on the sprinkler wiring thinking it would be a good practice session for wiring my car. Â After installing the timer box, I had to wire each of the 9 terminals to the appropriate outlet on the timer. Â Sounds simple enough but for some reason neither the wife or myself could accomplish the task. Â The wires would not go into the terminals ( push in type). Â I called Bob and he agreed to come over and help me. Â It took him (an electrician) less than 2 minutes to accomplish the task. Â The directions clearly stated to push them in and made no mention of pushing up the connector to allow the wire to pass into the terminal. Â I was embarrassed but at least the job is now completed. Â I went back with him and shot a couple of photos of his wiring job on the dash and gauges. Â He is moving very fast as the LARS is not far away.
This is a busy week for car shows. Â The GG’s in Del Mar Â is the largest event by far. Â The cruise from P-Town to Del Mar has started and should provide a lot of fun for the participants. Â I hope Steve takes some photos for me. Â I went on this junket years ago and it was great fun. Â Several stops along the way breaks up the boring drive down the I 5 freeway. Â Maybe next year I will make it in Lucy or Andre.
I need to get back to work while the weather is nice. Â Eighty degrees today makes me feel fabulous.
Here is a clean little 33 tudor sedan that was recently for sale. Â I wonder if Louie is driving his dads to Louisville this summer?
I like model 40’s with fenders also, especially when they look this good.
I like maroon 40 sedans and this one from the San Diego area will probably be in Del Mar. Â I would add the dropped axle and be done.
Bob still has his patina 40 coupe for sale that someone needs to Â purchase and be ready for the summer cruise.
This is the later style heater that also works well under the dash. Â Use as a heater, A/C, or radio box.
This is not Don’s but is a very nice 33 Ford racer. Â I believe this is the real deal and includes the trailer for you show guys. Â Nice ride.
Poteets roadster in the early stages at Roy’s. Â This is the stage Lucy is in Â and I need to get going to complete her.
A SO-CAL starter kit that has been finished and is looking good. Â Pete can build you one or you can build your own. Â Save your money for one of these as they are over 6 figures.
Mr. Washburn had SO-CAL build him one of my favorite traditional contemporary hiboys for all of us to enjoy. Â Blue is in this year.
Frank has a stable of Deuces and Forties to choose from when heading back to LA or the LSR. Â I wonder what he driving this week. Â He only has the real deal cars.
I traded my 40 convert to Steve for this wonderful phaeton back in 2001 and had a ball driving it everywhere. Â You need to experience the wind in your face when you are between two semis going 70 mph. Â Momma did not like the wind and held on tightly all the time.
