    It is Don Blairs and you are right it went thru many stages of Lake readiness...

    Here's the thread that led me to these questions below...the second link is the comments on the first...

    OMG...that is devistating
    OMG...that is devastating news. The hobby is truly losing an icon. Not only do we lose a great guy, but we also lose such great memories, knowledge, expertise, and everything else Don had to offer and did so freely. I am so, so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be truly missed. Condolences to the Family. RIP Don.

    Yes, Don bought it from the Spaulding brothers, replaced their T body with this one, and his own blown flathead

    Really stoked to score these RTA tags in a antiques mall in LA. I'm trying to do some research on Sam Comstock. I found his name mentioned in this thread in a Hotrod Magazine report for the April 1950 El-Mirage meet. Would love to find out any more info on what club he was a member of and what car he ran. Seems he did pretty well

    I’m blown away by the quality of these photos. And you have so many; these really help connect me with that moment in racing history. Priceless.. thanks for taking the time to share them.

    Hello HotRodDean; first off nice score on the timing tags! Kind of amazing you come all the way over here to find them in a antique mall in L.A.!! Good for you and glad you saved them. Crazy where some of this stuff ends up. I have checked everything I have but do not show anything on Sam. I think the best bet is to check with our friend @Jimmy B . His memorabilia collection is quite extensive. Take Care

    We have driven to El Mirage from San Antonio 4 times in our Deuce highboy roadster, 2019 being the latest trip. I was wondering if there is a chance in Hell I could buy one of your PRC plaques. I intend to display it on my roadster until we head back to El Mirage in case it is disallowed by club rules. If I can't display it, I would be happy to hang it on my garage wall next to my club plaque, The Spokesmen. I would be more than willing to join the PRC if out-of-state residents are permitted. I totally understand if this is no bueno. Gary.

    I believe an ex-member of PRC offered his plaque up for sale a couple of years ago on eBay for $500.

    I think he is a member here too, just cannot recall him name

    Thank you oj. That is actually my Son and Grandson. Like I said I am trying to get the Grandkids involved also. My Granddaughter is even doing some welding on things. Hell she's a better welder than I am!! Sorry to say but my parents passed on a few years ago:( But as you know they have left us all with a lot of excellent pictures and information for all to enjoy for years to come!!! The picture of Mom on the pickup is one of my favorites. Happy Holidays to all!!:)

    Thanks @woodiemike same to you Hotrodder...;)

    Who is that in the background with you and your Grandson and I'm not talking about Fido...

    Nice Hotrod shaping up by the way...I'd expect nothing less from you with the amount of it in your bloodstream...thanks for all your contributions here...;)
     
  21. Hey mike, the roadster is awesome. Are you going to be running 6v or 12v. What are you planning for a distributor? I might have an extra Lincoln LZ distributor hanging around. Merry Christmas. Bruce.

    How's it going @Stogy? Hope things are well with you and yours. Thank you for the attaboy! I always look forward to your comments here on the HAMB. Always very insightful and knowledgeable. Thank you for your contributions. That picture is my Son and Grandson. The guy in the background is "uncle Fester" after a hard night of Trick or Treating!! LOL!!:):) Our build is going to be the "usual" traditional build. 59AB motor, 32 K-member, 39 pedals, 40 steering wheel, 40 rear end, juice brakes, etc., etc. And a hundred other small things.;) We are plugging along as I am trying to involve my Son and Grandkids as much as possible. It has been very rewarding so far. As the saying goes, it's all about the journey. Doing the research, hunting down parts, etc. And of course the "Hot Rod" experience. Take care and Happy Holidays.:)

    Hey Bruce good to hear from ya!:) Going 12V with this one. Not going to go to crazy with the anything. Was just going to use the stock "crab" distributor to keep things simple and the cost down. I certainly appreciate the offer though!! If things change I will let you know. I assume you will be at LARS this year? If so I will be looking forward to seeing you again. Give you Grandfather my best! Happy Holidays and see ya soon.;)

    Hey Mike, sorry I have not been here in a while. Thanks for the reply, yeah it is pretty amazing that I travelled all the way over from the UK and found them. I'm still looking for any information that may be out there on Sam Comstock. Thanks again for your reply and making this fantastic thread happen!
    Happy New Year to you.
