Default Rodder's Journal... Coverage of an Excellent Show

I just got home last night and started processing this morning. Here's the first few. Killer show. Best first-time effort I've ever seen in my 53 years of going to shows. Congratulations to Steve and his attentive staff. The cruises and activities were very well planned and lots of fun. The rough streets of Baltimore were not kind to lowered cars, however!

Except the owner's defacing his own beautiful statement to express an ugly statement. Kind of a "cut off your nose to spite your face" move.



Man, this maroon roadster is gorgeous. The way the honey colored steering wheel matches the cowl welting and the "Firestone" lettering on the tires and feels so good against the incredible maroon. All the black and chrome and polish details bring it home. Stance and proportion are spot on too. I O.D. easy on late 40's and early 50's text book hot rods, but I'll make a GIGANTIC exception for this one.

Thanks for taking the time to shoot all the pictures and post them Tom. I know it's a time consuming shitty job, but someone has to do it, even with nit wits like me bothering you to chat. It was good to meet you.

Jeem, the wild thing about the car is its pedigree. I got to know the owners, Jack and Cathy Sternemann from St. Louis. Before that, I had assumed that it was a beautiful repop of late 40's/early 50's style; but no, it is actually an iconic Southern California car that Jack acquired and restored. Maybe someone can chime in with the original owner's name.

I'm not big on vulgarity either, but it is funny.

The car was built by Walker Morrison in the early 50's.

I enjoyed our chat too, Ol. What's your actual first name?
