    Ever since I read that interesting story, it was a throwback to those little kid days in Long Beach. Back in those formative years of pre-teen days, we were introduced to the whole line up of clean cut kids with mouse ears on their heads. They were All American kids and had one of the coolest jobs around. We constantly saw them on a TV show called the Mickey Mouse Club. Little did we know that one of the characters would end up with the developer of a hot rod Scarab Sports Car.

    “Hi, I’m Cheryl” was heard everyday the show was on after school. She was not the most popular Mouseketeer, but played an important part of the shows. It wasn’t until much later that she became the second wife of Lance Reventlow. As little kids, we read about the Scarab Automobile Sports Car Company. We liked it that a Long Beach legend, Chuck Daigh, was one of the successful drivers for the Scarab Organization. It was one heck of a custom build to challenge those other sporty cars in racing.


    Reventlow? He was pretty good at using his trust and it paid off. We were always impressed at what a great design the Scarab Sports Car was. As we were getting into our teen years, all sorts of motor sports became interesting, but then, hot rods and drag racing took over. That was a moment to remember. But the Scarab was a precursor to liking all motorsports.

    One thing that was difficult to draw was the odd look that the Halibrand slot, finned wheels were with the three prong knock off hubs/spinners. That looked odd back then and still looks odd, today. It just does not have symmetry.

    “In ancient Egyptian religion, the Scarab was also a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection, much used in funerary art. The life of the Scarab Beetle revolved around the dung balls that the beetles consumed, laid their eggs in, and fed their young, represented a cycle of rebirth.”

    In our high school, there was this girl’s club called Scarabs. They certainly downplayed the origin of the Scarab Bug. But, under our breaths, whispers wandered all over the campus… about that bug. Their red sweatshirts made the interiors of our hot rods and cruisers brighten up a little. Red on red in the 58 Impala was kind of cool.

    And if ya need somebody to watch over the mustang so you can free up some space for the build, I'd be happy to... :)
  26. One with a ( STORY ) This was back in the 80's? I pulled into a McDonald's to hangout with some friends. We met to drink coffee and tell stories, { lies }. Lol One night after I parked the coupe, and went inside. I was met by this sweet little old lady. She asked me what I was driving. I said was a 1929 Ford when new. But now is just an old Hot Rod. She told me that she thought it was some kind of U.F.O. landing. I laughed. A short time later. I was driving the coupe when I got passed a Virginia state trooper. I noticed in my mirror that he was doing a donut in center of the highway. I thought this can't be good! So I pulled over. He asked if I knew why I was pulled over? I had many ideas. Lol But I said no sir. He said that I had improper registration, and tags. I asked him what was wrong with them. He told me they were for a vintage car with only limited use. I told him that all my friends, with old cars had them. He said that might be so. But he told me that he hadn't passed them half a dozen times. At the time I was driving it, as our second car. So I politely thanked him. I then went to the DMV. I thought about what the lady at McDonald's had said. So I got a personalized tag the, ( LO U.F.O ) So sorry if I've told this story before. But we still meet at McDonald's and tell the same old stories over and over too.:) Ron.... 20190919_203842.jpeg

    The dust is in your hair
    The dust is in your crack
    The dust is in your car, every nook and cranny.
    You are tired, dirty, and having the best time of your life.
