    SAM_6180.JPG SAM_6181.JPG SAM_6178.JPG So, I'm home, dogs are washed, feet soaked a bit, pictures loaded, Various dads called (Both step and adopted) brain exhausted.... What a weekend!

    My buddy Andy (Nitro Brother here on the H.A.M.B.) left here at 4:30 on Friday morning, caravanned a bit with some of my fellow Red Devils club members, hit Early Ford Store, then over to So-Cal, Then Walden's. Makes for one hell of a long day! Up reasonably early yesterday and out to the grounds to spend about four hours walking the swap meet. Andy being a newbie to all things L.A.R.S. had his head mounted on a continues swivel, and I thought at times he might over load! Walked preferred parking, had a semi-tearful reunion with my old beloved O/T Maverick (ya, I kissed it on that goofy white roof!) living the wild life on the coast these days, and out a semi sedate dinner as has been tradition with ElPolacko and I for about twenty five years at Clearman's North Woods in Azusa. Back out this morning to walk the Roadster display, and hit the NHRA museum. Spent a bit of time saying hi to good H.A.M.B. friends, (Howdy Steel Rebel! Thanks for lettin' me take a spin in your bucket! I DO consider than an honor!!!) and introducing myself to and talking a bit with some heroes that the H.A.M.B. has allowed me to get to know as friends. (That'd be you Dean Lowe!!) 6 1/2 hours of driving and I'm home!

    Damn, what a weekend!!!!

    Got to see Lil' John Buttera's game changing '29 in the flesh again for the first time in many, many years... You can't know how profoundly this car changed the landscape of hot rodding if you SAM_6198.JPG weren't around in the seventies.... For better or worse! Good to see it still around!

    So, having not shot too many picts at So-Cal, it was time to head up the street to Walden's for more of the same AND ice cream! A quick aside, as I waited for the gates to open at Walden's my phone lit up, and it was a lawyer that I am interviewing to handle the dragging case of the destroyed Falcon... When he asked if I could take a half hour and talk right then, I explained that "no" I couldn't as I was celebrating my "Holy High Holiday"... He asked if I was Jewish - "Nope, hot rodder..."

    SAM_6220.JPG More from Walden's. The channeled '29 delivery is the Kersh family car on the last sixty years or so.

    The photo loading stuff is being retarded again, or maybe I am. Either way, I have to go build a T-Bucket steering column before the heat rolls in today... More later.

    Chip,
    Take pictures please! Mines acting up a little as well (Squeeks), not exactly sure how to get the nylon top bushing out in one piece?

    The water in that gutter is awfully green.. Someone overheat close by?

    And are my eyes deceiving me or is that Jimmy White's Hemi coupe sitting in the shade behind the yellow coupe?

    Great shots! Keep them coming.

  20. Great photos Chip! Keep them coming! Wish we could have made it. Someday. Does the LARS still include the reliability run?

  23. At one point at Walden's someone suggested that Chip should "save" a parking spot out in front of Walden's for one of the Red Devil's cars...

  25. Yup, White's Hemi was right there.

    We couldn't tell if it was antifreeze or just brackish water standing in the gutter. When I suggested to Chip that he should find out by kneeling down and tasting it, he kinda gave me a weird look...

    Thanks for the pics of Lil' John's car. His style isn't for this site, but no one can deny the man had talent.
