    Hi Guys!

    My wife and I are goin to the states for our honeymoon. Its our first trip to the US. We are starting at Bonneville speed week and then a two week road trip. Where going to Vegas and California. We are going live in the LA area, but might take a trip to San Diego or San Fransisco.

    We are going to Petersen automotive museum and NHRA museum, So-cal speedshop and maby Barris or Hines shop.

    Are there any cool shows or other shops I should visit?

  2. If you are out in Pomona you need to go to the NHRA Museum and take the tour of the SoCal Speed Shop back room. About 4 miles apart. The museum is closed a couple of times during the week so check their hours first. SoCal does a couple of tours a day. 11 and 2 if I remember right. Took her wifeliness to both. She liked the museum but was kind of bored at the shop.
     
  3. yeah, so when are planning to be here?

    I second the primer nationals. Sounds like the time would be right too.

    Friday night's a good night to be in Burbank at the Bob's Big Boy (technically it's Toluca Lake, but Burbank is right there). It's one of the oldest ones, and it draws a lot of good vehicles. There's a lot of money in the area (Hollywood), and guys bring out some real impressive stuff. If you get there in the afternoon before the cruise you have to check out Auto/Aero books in Burbank and 8-Ball (a cool vintage style store) also.

    You had mentioned Chris craft 50's boats,if you are travelling back along Interstate 80 from Salt Lake and coming by Lake Tahoe there are a couple of places to check out for some old woodys.
