We are home from our awesome trip out to Victoria for deuce days. We had a great time with a few highs and lows, and thought some would appreciate a recap of the events. This isn’t a summary of the show, more of a summary of my road trip. As some may know I just finished building my first hot rod, a 30 ford coupe. I have a build thread for those who missed it... https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/frys-model-a-coupe-build-recap.1128346/ The weeks leading up I did a lot of testing and tuning, finding anything that needed adjustment or review before our trip. Cranking coilovers, adding bumpstops, weatherproofing, removing squeaks and rattles, adding anti theft items, packing tools/oils/parts/etc, trying to reduce my inventory so we could actually pack some luggage in the trunk. Eventually we were able to squeeze everything into the back and we were off. I had pre-booked some hotels for the way out but nothing for the way back, unsure of just how far we’d make it. This would be me and wife’s first trip without the kids in ages and we were both excited and nervous. Day one, With everything packed and ready to go we hit the road, the wife driving my truck as we head to the in-laws to drop off the kids. It was hot outside but the car was cool and comfortable for the 200 mile drive and I was feeling confident. Ready to leave, with 1130 miles on the odometer, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Deuce days sticker and canola fields, leaving the prairies of Saskatchewan. I wasn’t sure if putting the sticker on would be good or bad luck... Stopping for lunch in Medicine Hat, AB. The car freshly cleaned and waxed looked amazing for a crappy paint job. The wife took this of me rolling down the number one highway. Storm and tornado warnings, strong winds and rain, we tucked the car away safely for the night in the in-laws quonset.
