    Hello,

    "Now, that is one look that we would see almost weekly, cruising around Bixby Knolls or in the parking lot at Lions." (from previous post)


    Or…I forgot, these 40's were seen frequently, at Lions Dragstrip fighting an uphill battle against the perennial winner, Junior Thompson in his black Studebaker Sedan. The B/Gas rules put most street cars with SBC or V8 power to weight in this class. David against the Giant… This time as usual, the Giant wins…again.

    51 years this week my gal has been riding shotgun in a whole spectrum of hot rods with me. This will be our last one. See the smile? She knows we are going for ice cream! Dennis Day (D-Day Design) did my air cleaner to match the flames this spring, his usual great work. And inspired by Don and others, decided to try the cyclops fog light look. We'll see, jury still out. 001.JPG 005.JPG 20170411_122111.jpg 002.JPG

    Hey O,
    An escapee from the Price Automobilia Museum in So Cal, perhaps? That is one fine 40 either way,(Ontario or So Cal) with the looks of hot rodding in California from the 50-60's.

    Apologize if this is already on the thread but found it this morning and for an ol' fellow it brings back the days of summer. Worth another glance anyway.

    Next Gen! We talk a lot about the lack of younger blood in our hobby. And I don't disagree the Uber riding millenials don't care about old cars. But I just wanted to post a bright spot. This is Wyatt, my youngest grandson, who soloed with the hot rod Monday and did a fine job. He is going to take it to the August Cars and Coffee in Portsmouth. My grandson has been taught well by his father, welder at Navy shipyard, how to use tools and to love old cars. So sometimes quality is better for the hobby than sheer quantity.
