Default The Perfect Day



Johnny Joyo walks into the shop and for a split second, I don't see his face. Instead, I see a snapshot of his '36 cabriolet where his face should be. My cell phone rings and El Jefe's name appears, but I don't see it. Before my brain registers t...

Yeah the pics that Bleed posted gave me a little chill down the spine. First of all I am always extremely excited for people when they decide to take that step in their life and get married. It's been the best choice in my life I know Paul probably feels the same. Couple that with a good group of friends that also happen to have some of the baddest rides out there and you have the making for as you call "a perfect day". When you can mix life's passions and it all blends smoothly like it was meant to be it;s a day to celebrate for sure. Family, Friends, & Hot Rods.....what else is there?

Yeah,... your right, In conversation when someone brings up another Hot Rodder,... I picture his car or project first,.... (And I am one of those knuckle heads that say "It's not about the cars,... it's about the people" )

Sounds like a great time for friends and family,.... I wish Paul and his new Bride all the best life has to offer.

A guy I met just once over a year ago reintroduces himself at a wedding. My brain can’t pull his name, but I instantly see his roadster in my mind’s eye.
I was afraid that I was the only one afflicted with this disease. I can tell you all the details of a guys hotrod but pulling up his name that is buried in my gray matter someplace is always a problem. It will come to me but long after the embarrassment of the immediate situation.

It looked like a nice day with fun stuff to look at in the parking lot. Much cooler than the few weddings that I attend. I hope they have a long happy life together.

You and me both Tommy,,I was talking to a guy yesterday that I went to high school and I really didn't remember him,,he knew my name,remembered the band I played in but most of all remembered that jacked up 63 Falcon sprint,,

When the talk turned to cars he said he had a primer red 55 chevy with chrome rims and no front bumper,,,I said yeah,,I remember the car and this is just a fluke but I instantantly knew him as Tommy. HRP
