Event Coverage 2011 Palo Alto Concours D'Elegance ... PICS!!!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HEMI32, Jun 26, 2011.

  1. @R&C RON -

    I completely agree about this Concours being "awesome" ... my son & I really enjoyed it.

    We actually swung by the HAMB BBQ at ~3:00 ... but could only see a couple of cars from the Quarry Lakes Park front gate ... and I was too cheap to pay the $5 parking fee :eek: ... so we left. :eek:

    Regarding Mumford's 3wd ... D'oh!, I guess I missed that one too! ... I had put the "??? - 19xx xxxx xxxx" text into each post as a place holder ... then resized & inserted the images into each post via my iPhone TJJ app (a lot quicker than the Photobucket method) ... but forgot to update some of the owners names ... It's fixed now.

    Nothing but praise for your selections. How anyone has the gall to 'nit-pick' these autos is beyond me.

    Hey Todd,
    I was there under the Oaks selling space on the car. I forgot to send the paperwork, so They let me park in the bark under the trees. Had a bunch of Sunbeam's to look at all day. Next time park in front of the store, run in get the Fred's and run out !! I promise no tickets....... Dave
  4. D'oh! ... We walked thru the row of ~20 Sunbeam Tigers ... but I guess I never looked in your direction ... I'll blame it on my son who really wanted to go the opposite direction to look at the "old Police cars" ...

    Great pics of some outstanding cars. The cream of the crop as they say. Thanks for taking the time to share.

    It's a late model Eaton/Magnuson blower, from the mounting pattern it looks like an M62 off a Buick. Inlet port's on the rear face of the blower.

    The A-motor streamliner runs an M90 off a Thunderbird SC I think (at least it looked like the one I've got in my bits-I-might-use-someday bins) with a single sidedraft Weber on the inlet port. I've never seen a 'Bird Maggie run draw-through before, wonder if he's had any way to check his cylinder-cylinder AFR/exhaust temps.

    On the little aluminum roadster, I was trying to figure out what all the pieces were that he put together to make up the transaxle...

  16. Big effort, thread overwhelms!- much appreciated Hemi32, with thanks. Subscribed.

    The T speedster & roadsters are rad, the banger candy dandy. The Westergaard '36 is inspiring stuff. Too much, a fine Ford feast!

    Welcome to the H.A.M.B.!!! ... I'm honored that your first post is in one of my threads.

    Your Deuce Roadster is just plain bitchin' ... my lowly cell phone pics don't do it justice.

    I too would like to thank Mr. Palmer ... IMHO, the "Flathead Hot Rods" & "Flathead Race Cars" were the highlight of this years event.

    NOTE: Checkout the SEABRIGHT HOT RODS website for more pics & info about Gary's '32 Hiboy:

    Great Pics. Thanks for sharing.

    When was the last time you went to a show and saw, not just 1 or even 2, but 3 Ardun OHV setups (plus an additional 4 cyl in the swap meet):eek:

    Thanks for the pix.......and feel free to share some of the 'non-flathead' powered cars. I look forward to the Concours shows locally every year, alot of guys bring out the VERY rare/odd cars to the show & you find out that the car was in the garage right behind your house.

    Someone that is VERY close to our place has a couple of MB Gull-wings that he builds in his backyard. It's funny, he's a 'junk collector' like us & you would never think what he has in his garage by the way he looks & his house.
