    Hey Ryan,
    Nice story, details and photos from the shoot...(shades from my past !) I did not know how long your family was in So Cal, but, agreed...Disneyland is a big zoo without the wild animals.

    To get your perspective back to the real So Cal, a fun, train ride down the coast to San Diego usually calms everyone down and gets things right again. Maybe next time...

    Those were nice cars in the photoshoot. That area of OC has a lot of places for good background shots. No, not from the sheriff's department, either.

  9. I sold Nathan that 46 Ford steering wheel that is in his sedan when I took it out of my 34. It looks perfect in there, one of my favorite wheels.

    I've never been a big fan of mordoors, but something about that sedan just feels right. '27 Roadsters, always a favorite.

  20. Love the mordor,I have always been a fan of the redheaded stepchild in the Deuce lineup and am driving my second one.

    As for your experience with your family in the Disney experience (bowels of Hell),I can sympathize having being the willing participant in what can only be described as a good reason for divorce or methodical & premeditated acts of mayhem.

    The experience scared me for life and I have refused to go on any extended family vacations,I love my family but the old saying is true,"Fish and relatives stink after three days." add Disney to the equation and you so realize why men die first! HRP

  21. Last time I was in so-cal Disneyland I was 9. I am now 70:eek: I took a trip with my Dad who came out to Santa Monica to help his Dad (my Grand Dad) with his estate/will. Anyway we went to Disney and I am sure I was a pain in the ass. I don't remember. But what I do remember is driving down to Tijuana Mexico in my grandfathers 50 Chevy sedan delivery.:cool: We drove out across the border and My GF dropped my dad and I off on the side of the road.:confused: He turned around and went back in to Mexico. Later returning to pick us up and head home to LA. Later I realized why when he removed a piece of wood from under the dash /radio to remove the tequila he had purchased and not claimed at the border.:cool: No I never told my Mom!:rolleyes: Cool looking 4 door!

  27. Ryan you are just a happy man! This is why!

    Men Are Just Happier People

    What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can never be pregnant You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park.

    Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks.

    A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Two pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

    You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes - one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes. No wonder men are happier.


    - If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.

    - If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.


    - When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.

    - When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


    - A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

    - A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.


    - A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.

    - The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.


    - A woman has the last word in any argument.

    - Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


    - A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

    - A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


    - A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

    - A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.


    - A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.

    - A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


    - Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

    - Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


    - Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

    - A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

    Fantastic story! Fantastic cars! Now about the whole kid thing. Now don't get me wrong, kids are great. I love my little nephew but no thank you. I can barely keep up with myself let alone another human being especially some place like Disneyland/world.
