    Last weekend the Triple Cities Street Rods (my club) had our 50th Anniversary car show...450+ cars:D

    I had contacted Gary M. @2NDCHANCE about doing one of his lense paintings for a "Best of Show" trophy. He knocked it outta the park with this one...absolutely beautiful. I built a wood base/stand for it, and it was a big hit.
    Thanks Gary:D 100_3492.jpg 100_3494.jpg final4.jpg

    Ever since my brother moved to Santa Barbara a long time ago, we have been visitors and community scrutinizers. We scoured the neighborhood parks, beaches, and local mountain trails. We even drove around to Solvang + Santa Ynez and came home via Alisal Road that goes over the mountain top, back down to the ocean at Gaviota.

    During the whole time in Santa Barbara, my brother came to know various auto repair/parts places. He did most of his work on the family cars, but if there was a problem he could not handle, he and his friends knew where to go for information or physical help. Bob Joehnck Automotive. They lived a short drive away on E. Gutierrez St., from the downtown location and the auto repair shop was a “local” favorite.
    Jump up many years later and our son was going to UCSB on the northern end of Santa Barbara, in Goleta Beach area. Our son had his first car. While at home, we both looked after it with care and love. I remember distinctly, my first car. So, we were ok. But, when our son moved away 200 miles north to UCSB, his connection to me was a phone call in an emergency.

    My brother had told me stories about the car repair stuff anyone could do at the time. But, suggested that with the history of Bob Joehnck and his staff, that was a place to go for our son. Plus, I did not want our son to be spending his time working on a car when he could be studying or actually, partying in Isla Vista. Yes!

    So, when a problem with his car running funny, I asked him if he could do some minor work. He chuckled and said who in the area could do good work? Well, it was instantly Bob Joehnck Automotive for dependable auto repair and maintenance. Our son took his car there as he knew the streets in that portion of downtown Santa Barbara and they fixed it to run perfectly. Now our son was happy and had a competent place to take his car when necessary.


    His continued visits to Bob Joehnck worked out as he had maintenance taken care of, but that car lasted for many more years up to 100k miles. Then he sold it to a friend who was in need, for a dollar and the friend continued on for many more miles. So, after graduation, he got a sporty car until he could afford a nice reliable family sedan. No, he did not want one of his parent’s old cars, either. A parental side joke he had for our cars, worked in our favor, as we kept our cars for many years of no fix/pure delight road trips. @HEMI32 thanks for the inspiration and information.

    Great scene, Moose. I'm guessing the shoe shine boy is in the hotel lobby.
