Wenesday’s Journey

Andy’s Picnic is in the history books and was attended by several hundred fans from all over the West. My friend George and Rich sent in some photos of some of the cars they liked. I wish I could have made it but I will see most of the cars at P-Town this Friday. I first started attending Andy’s Picnic in 1984 while out in Northern California on business. Once I moved to the bay area, I attended them every year he held them. He is a legend in the hot rod world and a wonderful person. I wish him all the best on his trip to Indy with the gang.

The heat is still with us so work has slowed to a crawl. My wife and I went to the paint store, the upholstery shop and selected a color pallet for Andre. We both are in agreement on our choices, so for now, we are headed in the same direction. That is a good thing. I have a photo that shows our final choices. If we see something better then I will issue another ECN. Remember those?

I will be out of town for a week but will try to post some of the cars from the GG’s event on Sunday.

Stay Tooned!


George and I like 40 woodies and this one is sure a looker. Maybe he will be at P-Town.

The 37 Cabriolet sports  a similar color combination and was sitting in the shade on this hot day.

I have not seen this tub but it looks good  in all black. I hope to see this one also in P-Town this weekend.

A rear photo shows the clean lines of the tub. The black paint looks flawless in the photos.

I have always liked the Winter Leaf light brown color on Deuces. My friend Jim in Atlanta owned this for a long time and it is now back in CA.

Jeff and Gary drove their Woodies to the picnic and were looking for the beach to cool down a little. The late Don Thelan built the maroon one and Gary built his 37 in his garage. These are both high end woodies and are driven regularly.

Mercury’s are a rare sight and this brilliant blue one had the top down to enjoy the heat.

Some hot rodder’s were in attendance as the cute 5 window hiboy looked race ready. Lots of louvers to keep it cool.

Rich is a pilot and shot this photo about 1:30 pm when a lot of cars had headed home.

Today’s little Deuce coupe!

George stayed over for a trip to Lake Tahoe on Monday. He drives his little Deuce coupe everywhere. He must have seen some beautiful scenery on his way home. He likes shifting his 6-speed Tremec in the mountains.
