  6. Late to the tribute party but I've been busy. If I'd have finished this, I'd have shared it last week.

    PS, When I say busy, I've been storyboarding on a new show being developed for FOX's prime time animation block and beyond...

    A 50s Plymouth Station Wagon always reminds me of surfing early Dana Point in the cliff side semi-secret surf spots. At the time, the inland surfers were all parked at the Doheny Beach parking lots and stuffed the surf breaks there. But, if one was a little curious, a walk along the rocky shoreline at the base of the cliffs was the answer to great surf, glassy waters with plenty of kelp to keep the location fairly smooth during any swell.

    As the sea weed grew and spread, it made for some exciting unforeseen rides until the skeg got stopped by the seaweed. Then it was nose first into the water. But, to be able to surf these spots with only a few others, was pretty much “heaven on the water.”

    One of the Long Beach surfers from our high school bought an early 49-53 station wagon from some lady that had it parked in a side yard. It was not the best shape, but after a couple of teenagers got finished with some motor tune ups and a power wash and wax, it turned out to be a wonderful looking surf wagon.

    It was a regular at the Doheny Beach surf spot parking lots. But, they kept wondering why we always surfed a couple of waves, then disappeared back to shore. (for the long walk along the rocky shoreline and disappear around a tall cliff.)

    But always acknowledging the ownership of that cool Plymouth Station Wagon, we thought that was the epitome of surf wagons. That was, until we saw some custom ones at the local Long Beach car shows at the old, Municipal Auditorium display floor. Then it was instantly wanting a station wagon that looked like the custom ones we saw on the floor displays.

    We had no idea that George Cerny was a custom car guy until we continued to see the station wagons and other custom cars at other shows. But, we always wandered back to the station wagon for a dream world vision of being able to park it at the Dana Point pier parking lot for the Killer Dana surf sessions. The tall cliffs hid the other spots as the coastline cliffs have bends in the direction, from the South and from the North. The best spot was where the current Dana Point Harbor bridge is located.

    The lot also provided us a longer walk back along the rocky shoreline below the cliffs from the Northern parking lots to the surf spots that we called “the best on this particular coast” area. Chest to overhead waves, glassy water surface, only a few brave souls that fought off the rocky shoreline to get to the spot. What more would anyone want in a semi- secret surf spot, besides being able to get to the parking lot with a cool custom Plymouth Station Wagon.


    Those semi secret surf spots were always glassy and pristine. The heavy kelp beds kept the water smooth. They lasted until the Orange County government decided they needed a place to park some power boats and sailboats. One place was Monarch Beach Cove to the North, but it was located in a private community that was against any incursion of the public. So, they finally agreed to build the new harbor in the Killer Dana Cove and all the way back to the Doheny Beach surf spots.

  14. What a great way to start my Friday. thank you guys for what you do.
  15. Great reminder @edcodesign

    This is one I was proud to do for a NYC fireman. I hope, in honor of the first responders to the 9-11 attacks, we can forgive the modern wheels on this rig. I tried to find the file I'd put more traditional running stock on but to no avail.
    Have a great weekend everyone!

  16. This reminds me so much about a funny deal on a road trip years ago. we were on a cruise from Des Moines to Columbus with Goodguys and a buddy of mine was in his old flattie powered 32. We were somewhere in Illinois and he shucked the rear end in his car. Any way we went and got a truck and trailer to haul his car on to Columbus and we were pushing it on the trailer and we got it about half way on and ran out of steam. we were on I70 and it was busy. I walked around the car and there was the owner standing there trying to keep the car from rolling back and his pants were down around his ankles and his tighty whities sticking out for the passers by. I wont tell all the other details but we gave him crap for a long time. I told him his secret was safe with me.
    True story,

    Carved this at work 35 years ago from a vinyl eraser, mounted on a piece of wood. Took a picture of an eraser, to show how big it is.
