I remember the good old days when they both talked to me..now...nothing. Glad to see they're both up to no good. They both rule.

That is so cool! I am not really sure why maybe because it just looks cool and would be an adventure?
It would be funny to get a pic of that in a NAPA or autozone right in front of the don't work on your car in the parking lot sign. The looks on peoples faces would be priceless.

What would be great to see is if they bolted in a old bench seat in its 'regular' spot, and strapped a esky to one side.... now think of the 'conversation opportunities' that you could get with that...especially if they sat a 'dummy' in there on the highway....for that matter (put on 'stupid' hat), I'd sit there for a little along the trip just to take a few photo's of peoples faces as they passed you by...


Cheers,

P.S. Caddy engines with 2x2's are the new flat black...

"And absolutely no one in NorCal was willing to help the two with a tow bar set up"

ABSOLUTELY NO ONE?
I wonder if they asked the right people... Cause I can think of more than a handful of good folks here in Nor-Cal that would help with a tow bar if I asked.

Looks like an awesome trip..
Post more pics when you get em!

The towed car is licenced (see photos)

The idea was to do it like the "lakes days" and Steve wants to show all the Street Rodder "gold chainers" (not my favoite term) that young guys are capable and interested in building highly detailed and superbly built traditional rods. The body is off for paint (yeah) so it seemed perfect to show off the chassis details in the RJ booth. I would love to see them blasting across the country in that set-up!

A lot of you guys slam the "Street Rod" scene, so be glad that Steve and Geoff are takin' real rodding back to the "lawn chair" crowd!

This is marketing brilliance! When you look at all the road trips that have been covered over the years in various magazines this one will go down as one of the memorable ones. Its outside the square thinking, its insane and I am sure that people wont be able to work it out but then I say "Why not?"
Imagine the stories that Steve and Geoff will have on this road trip? Imagine the stories and memories that the people that they visit will have! Its freakin classic!
Imagine going down the freeway and being passed by this roadshow!???!
I remember meeting Geoff at Squeaks one year - what a cool guy! Steve, you have one bitchin ride and your work is brilliant!
Looking forward to seeing this Road Trip in TRJ

I think its been so long since Steve has had his own hot rod that he will use any excuse to drive it! Its probably the best way to get both vehicles there since I don't believe I've ever seen a "Rodders Journal" semi at any of these events.......

So why exactly do they really need a reason other than just wanting to do it!!! Sometimes that reasoning thing can really get in the way of some cool shit and this deal is "Way Cool"!!!

Maybe the body will get swapped at the nats and then they will tow the other frame home... Trolling for lunkers with different bait

SPOSE THEY CAN HAUL A LITTLE MORE GAS THIS WAY TOO
