The Jalopy Journal
Up until the late 1980's we had a loop to cruise (as well as several old drive up burger joints around the Puget Sound area) where I grew up in...
@Ebbsspeed, sort of.
Sloughs were originally used by loggers for moving logs to Seattle. The boat races took place on them as well. The owners of...
Man those guys drove the hell out of those boats!
There was something similar in the Seattle area where I'm from.
Here's a video of one of them....
I agree with @HOTRODPRIMER, those Pontiac's are pretty sweet, but the green on your's with the Fiestas is a standout. Glad you had a good...
Driving those Austin's must be fun I'm sure, but sliding that T-Bird all over the place would put a heck of a smile on your face.
The driving of...
Ah, Thanks @lurker mick. I see the lines on it now. My old eyes coupled with the delivery being in shadow made it hard to decipher the make. Still...
Thanks for the history, great stuff.
What's the story on the Rod & Custom panel. It looks to be a 1937-'38 Willys.
That thing is sweet!
Looks to be super fun, but that helmet isn't going to help you much if one of those buses doesn't see you...ouch.
I see you went through Crescent City, love the Fresnel lens!
Lots of great stuff. There's nothing like traveling the back roads of America.
It's Wilshire Blvd. Google is your friend.
Creswell Drug Store, 8801 Wilshire Blvd at Robertson Blvd, Beverly Hills
I agree the whitewalls and Fiestas make all the difference. I think whatever you decide on paint it will look good, but now with era correct...
@Austinrod, Maybe a dumb question but what is the shiny rod (that looks like all-thread) on the right of the picture for?
So Mighty Mouse cares about the young mice hot rodders, but not the law abiding citizens they were terrorizing? o_O That's too funny.
↑ Ha, ha I agree and I'm now rethinking what I said about them.
The top on it with the fenders makes it downright sinister.
@sololobo take a look at the picture where they're polishing it. The end of the pipe looks really clean. I'm betting there's some sort of block...
@Malcolm you might be thinking of Wilson Welding in Dallas/Ft Worth that makes the finned backing plates....
@EVL401 Awesome, great to hear!
@J.Ukrop so you didn't make the big move back East with the rest of the RJ crew?
@Green Voodoo, or anyone else, have any word on the Green Voodoo Thunderbird?
Would more than love to see this car in the public eye again.
It's probably not pc around here.., but damn I like those Polyglas tires on it!
I burned the tread off on a few of those back in the day.
Man oh man, another feature vehicle that I wouldn't change a thing on.
Who wouldn't be prouder than heck to wheel around in this little hauler?!
Drop...Dead...Gorgeous...I wouldn't change a thing.
Looks good and mean, the meatier tires on the rear made a world of difference.
We need more of this these days. Sharp car and sharply dressed.
I'm kind of lukewarm on the outside looks of the Holiday House, but the inside...damn!
It's reminiscent of a 1930-40s boat cabin.
Man that thing is looking so good! That's gotta be a blast to cruise around in.
Sorry if I missed it, but have you had any further thoughts on...
Love the car! And the story line is okay, despite several technicalities.
But who the heck would stay standing in the middle of the road when...
That thing is seriously cool.
Is the one in your lead picture an earlier year model (free standing headlight)?
It's quite a dance to race the tether cars (2nd video)!
It must've been a site if those guys got their lines crossed.
Instead of “Kookie lend me your comb”, how about Kookie lend me your car![emoji846]
