1949 Ford Crash,Long Beach,Yesterday?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Bad Bob, Oct 11, 2010.

  1. I just saw that there was a 1949 Shoebox that crashed into a Semi,Sunday night,in Long Beach. Two people involved,went to the hospital.
    Anybody know who it might have been? The story said they were coming from a show.
    I did a search and couldn't find anything.
     
  2. hope they are ok!
     
  3. I know a lot of guys with Shoebox Fords,here in SoCal,so I was concerned. I was hoping it wasn't GassersGarage and his wife,but the article said DUI might be the case. He's a cop,so I really doubt it was them...

    The car in the photo I posted, from Masterson Kustom, was the car I saw wrecked on the news. Pretty much what Bob posted was what they said in the story.

    They had the Swap Meet at Veterans Stadium- not a car show.
     
  12. And the swap is pretty much done by noon, so I'd say they had headed somewhere else after the swap and if the alleged DUI was involved that time frame would make sense.

    I watched the video and even though not much of it was shown, it appears to me, the big rig was parked.
     
  23. Holy crap man that shoe box is wasted. Hope they're o.k. That footage was horrible to watch.

    That is hard to look at! Tangled with a bob-tail last year, totalled my truck- no damage to the big truck just like this one. Crazy how that works.
     
  29. That's a bad one for sure, I hope they come thru this OK. That steering wheel is really twisted, seat belts?
