    A great setting for an intimate gathering of Hoodlums...

    Thanks for the awesome pics @Blues4U...

    I extend a congrats to @Bad Bob for his Milestone at the event...I suspect the Club has deep roots in the movement...

    I never met Harold, but I've been talking to him on FB about mercs. Nice guy. He sent me a copy of Car Culture Deluxe with his cars in it and he also sent me a poster too!

    This will be it for photos for a few days at least. The wife and I are heading out in the morning for a few days of camping on the beach north of Santa Barbara, CA. Gonna get away from everything for a few days and enjoy the surf, sand and sun. I'll post more photos later this week or next.

    OK, here's the next batch of photos, I got to some of the award winners this time.

    This Ranchero custom was featured in the Rotunda at the TROG event in Santa Barbara a couple of years ago. The owner comes to a lot of Aces events. I love this car!

    This Zephyr was voted Best Custom. I wish I had gotten more pics of it, but it was hard to get any shots due to the crowds that were around it all the time. Very deserving of the award IMO. DSC_4538.JPG DSC_4539.JPG DSC_4541.JPG DSC_4544.JPG DSC_4545.JPG

  22. Thanks for sharing your skills with us. How did you manage to catch so many pictures without people in them? Great venue, looked like a well thought out and executed show! Being show number 17 they have certainly got it down.

    I was there early and got most of my photos before people started showing up. It got tougher later on, then you have to be patient. Some people are very courteous, they see you taking photos and they stay out of the way until you take the shot; or they suddenly see you and apologize for being in the way. I always thank them, and tell them not to apologize, it's all good, the show is for them after all. If nobody came out to see the cars the venue wouldn't allow the club to hold the event, so you have to be respectful. But some people are just jerks, they look right at you, and then stand right in the way, maybe just looking around, or talking, and they make you stand there and wait till they feel like moving on.

    And I try not to be the jerk photog either, because some guys act like they own the place; but I realize sometimes I get so carried away with what I'm doing I'll stop right in front of someone, or back up into somebody, and I assume some people hate photographers, so maybe that's their way of getting even, just stand in the way and make us wait. It's a game, oh well, I try to be respectful at all times and not be an ass about it.

    OK, time to finish this up.

    To start, I really liked the heavy flake in this coupe, which got me talking to the owner. It seems he drives this coupe all over the country, he has a ton of miles on it, which explains the message on the rear panel...
    DSC_4656.JPG DSC_4658.JPG DSC_4659.JPG DSC_4660.JPG DSC_4661.JPG DSC_4663.JPG DSC_4664.JPG

    My friends Buddy and Suzi Dughi and their band The Hot Rod Trio. Authentic rockabilly and roots rock, even a little surf thrown in. No psychobilly or punkabilly, they are the real deal.
    DSC_4666.JPG
    Suzi isn't just a pretty face, she really knows how to slap that bass! Seriously, she's really good, plus she sings.
    DSC_4669.JPG

    Besides being a great guitarist and band leader, Buddy is a serious hot rodder too. He drives a nice 30-31 RPU that you'll see later, and he is an ACES CC member. He's been building cars a long time and has built some seriously good cars, sold 1 or 2 to Brian Setzer, and he knows Jimmy Vaughan. I know Buddy & Suzy from the local music scene, I play blues, they play rockabilly, but we've jammed together, and played the same events. Both their band and mine opened for the Blasters a couple years ago. Buddy was in a blues band with some other friends and both of our bands opened for Eric Sardinas.

    I don't think this is a club members car, just a guy that didn't want to park inside, so he could leave early.
