  1. Whattup Robert! Just finished with the engine and trans and have the truck back on the road.Can't wait to cruise.
     
  2. I didn't know it was out? Glad you got it going. My '55 is down still. The finances seem to be eluding me still.

    i was only out on the bull for a little while wednesday. but, i noticed that the parking lot on van nuys at emelita (east side, actually between emelita and califa) was open and had all of it's lights on, and had very few cars. us hamb cruisers should plan on meeting at that lot next month. what say you'se guys?
     
  4. Has anyone "called" TOD (time of death) yet?:eek:
    I gotta say, it was really good while it lasted. Thanks for that Reid. After it getting shut down almost 3 decades ago, I would've never expected it to ever happen again in my lifetime.

    i don't think it is in danger of dying, it's just that different car types have more or less taken over.
     
  6. How about it was just cold and will pick in the spring when it gets warmer.
     
  7. Yeah, invisible ones:p
     
  8. Well, if you think about it, EXACTLY one year ago was the World Finals in Pomona, and Van Nuys was SMOKIN that Wednesday!

    Well we do what we can, I for one will make everyone I can (and I have thus far), If you count the much larger mass of lowriders there were more cars out there spread out than any local cruise night..just saying they are more down than us "hot rodders".

    see you next time, because last time I had a blast.

    Before calling "TOD" on Van Nuys Blvd, how about December? 2nd Annual Van Nuys Blvd Cruise Night Toy Drive...Drop off toys at Corky's starting at 6:00pm....bring an unwrapped toy or gift card and help at risk kids have a brighter holiday season...Wednesday December 8th...
    Let's see if we can beat last years donations...hey...Even Groucho and R. Seghi donated last year! :D
     
  11. What are you trying to say Reid, me and Groucho are cheap? Did you hear that Grouch? We're cheap. Hey, if ya got a worthy cause we'll donate otherwise ...

    No...Just saying that you guys who are the most vocal also help out, so if the others don't join in, then THEY are cheap....
    Always appreciated your help with clean up at the lot too...
    Looking forward to seeing you out there again this year!
    And for those of you who thinks it's too cold...Put on a jacket and roll up the windows ( unless you drive a roadster)
