Hey Kurtis, I'm not having a go just relaying that Terry has asked me not to post any pics he has sent me of the progress and I'm sure this is true to others he has shared them with.

I will take as many pics as I can when I see it at Pebble Beach and I'll post them then and the progress shots if I get the ok for those.
Cheers
Jimmy

Today people pay upwards of $150.00 a pop to view them parked on a golf course lawn. I'm guessin' the $150.oo is ment to keep the 'riff-raff' at bay i.e. hotrodders & kustom guys. One can hope some of the money actually makes it to a good cause!

I suspect that Bruce Meyer was instrumental in opening Pebble to hot rods and customs. He was already a concours guy and a Pebble Beach exhibitor before he started collecting hot rods, and I imagine that he lobbied to include some limited classes for them each year.

Exactly, Bruce Meyers was/is one of the greatest mover's and shakers. Don Orosco used to live in Fresno, and was a great mover and shaker for our local Concourse. He owned/owns one of the original Chevy powered cars the Reventlow Scarab after having other classics like D-Jags and a cool Maserati Birdcage. He moved to Monterey, and was responsible for getting improved recasts of the old Ardun heads, before passing them to someone else. There are some others but I can't recall all the details right now. There is a cool new book on "Hot Rod Garages" that you can glean a lot out of.

Dean Batchelor, also had a very long and respected career as an automotive journalist, for "Road & Track" magazine, hence the connection with the "Sports Car" crowd. Then thankfully before he passed away, he finished his incredibly fine book,"The American Hot Rod". A true gearhead "Icon" in my eyes. After all, aren't Ferraris, just Italian Hot Rods?

Don't confuse Bruce Meyers (creator/manufacturer of the Meyers Manx) with Bruce Meyer (hot rod collector and Petersen Museum patron). I'm sure it happens all the time, but they are two very different figures in the universe of car enthusiasts.

sorry, my bad on the spelling! Bruce Meyer then, I remember the little Manx as well, but that guy is not who I was talking about, I noticed that after I posted but didn't change it, thanks for catching that. He really got the ball rolling with the restored milestones.

If I screwed up I screwed up

Terry and I been friends for years. I am sure he'll forgive me.

Pebble is only a few days away. I'm worried he'll not make it.

It's tough being so far away and unable to help all my friends thrashing.

Found this today, sometime in the 1950's there was a Hot Rod feature in Popular Mechanics or like magazine that Dad had in the basement work shop. I cut out all the photos I liked and added them to a scrap book I'd started, must have been 9-10 years old. I used Scotch tape to attach things, over the years the glue dried up and all the clippings are fine. Hope the last minute restoration is going well.

Jimmy,

It's a shame I couldn't have met you while you were in Utah. I would have LOVED to hear all about Pebble Beach. Thanks for the photos!
