My good friend Bob had his neck operated on last week and is doing fine so I thought I would go by and say hello. Â He is a great person and car nut like me. Â Being a working man all his life he knows how to fight to win the battle and I know he will come out of this one a winner. Â Good luck to you Bob and I am sure you will be driving the roadster real soon. Â I then headed over to Frantic’s to see what he is working on and take some photos. Â After driving to the Valley, I soon arrived at Fred’s but there was no Fred. Â I guessed he must have gone home to see Lu. Â I was close to Bob’s so I stopped for a BigBoy, hold the center, and some ice tea. Â I passed some time looking at the pretty girls and again headed back to Fred’s….no one home. Â I came back to the wonderland and enjoyed the sunny afternoon ride. Â I again passed the day away without doing anything but dreaming and that’s O.K. according to my daughter. It is almost nap time so I will close with some photos for the “Wonderful Wednesday” I had.
Joe has been around a long time and he has one of the nicest 3 windows around. Â He also owns a 46 SD and 56 Ford pickup. Â Do you think Fat Jack painted the wheels and grille shell?
Frank’s newest Deuce was looking good with fresh paint and Halibrands. Â This transformation took a whole two weeks.
Eric had the wheels of the meet. Â Can anyone tell me what the brand name is for these rare accessories?
The Deuce RPU builders could take a lesson from this builder. Â I love the stance and overall design of the Deuce. Â I can’t tell but the steering arm appears to be missing on the cowl? Â How about those black wheels again on a black car.
If you were concerned about the rain in SL you could have driven this nice red 40 convert. Â Did you know they offered a red color in 1940…yes they did! Â Gary had one like this in the 80’s.
I have been following Chris’s build on the HAMB and he is coming along. Â If you want a real one you may have to start with something like this. Â He is young and has the talent for locating the good stuff. Â See the HAMB for more details.
The black plate tells me this is the real deal Deuce roadster and not a wannabe Brookville. Â Either one would be welcome in my garage but I can tell the difference just by looking at the reveals on the body. Â Say What!
I don’t know who purchased this Ohio built beauty but he was at the Outriders Picnic last year but he had a really a well executed RPU. Â How do you like the suicide front end and bones? Â Can you say L0000W?
This one is more my style but doesn’t have the “Cop Shop” look of the one above. Â These cars are growing on my list….I don’t have any more room or money left so I will just dream. Â You can do that can’t you?
Neal has this very tick real deal RPU with lots of one-off stuff he fabricated. Â The rear bed has a seat for the little ones.
