Thought I'd start this off since I've been working third shift and even though I had a day off I'm still keeping my same insane schedule!! Well, as some of you know, I have revived an old car club that dates back to the mid 1930s that ran at the dry lakes of California, the Hot Irons car club. (see for more info - http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=207183&highlight=hot+irons ) Along with a few friends and an original member its pretty wild,...history is where its at!! I'm pretty pshyched about the fact that I was able to track down some family members to past Hot Iron club members. One actually found ME on Ancestry.com....it was pretty cool. After talking with her brother, I found that he kept a TON of his father's photos, trophys, etc. I'm trying to work it out to head out and visit him next month, but that will all depend on work, etc. Club support T-Shirts have been printed up to help support the ongoings of the club, research, etc. $12 bucks each. Anyone interested, feel free to contact me. Always looking for info, pics, etc of the club and its members. In addition I'm still gathering history,etc. to compile in book form,...doing written transcripts out of my conversations with member's family members and our one original member who is now once again a Hot Iron member at age 90! Truely a kindred spirit, wonderful gentleman! Keepin busy,...even doing it on break at work,..guys call it my "homework",..ha! For now the Hot Iron Club have a simple myspace webpage, but I took it out of my own pocket to register a web domain which I'll be working on to put together a simple website. For now though www.myspace.com/hotironscc there you can see few pics (though its slow to get pics of rides and other member's, etc. with everyone's schedules!) On the hot rod front,...got my new Bill Stipe 340 cam,...an H&H pressure plate, and next week ging to my friend's to pick up an old Winfield carb on a Winfield single carb intake with an extra parts carb that will go with it. Found a Columbia II speed rear axle,...need to know some info on any differences on those between the years if they differ and if so, how, etc.?? So I'm considering running the Columbia rear for travelling. Still looking for info on running a "B" transmission with '39 gears in it,..so if anyone has any,..pics, etc. post them or send them to me! I'm also looking for a good solid "B" trans case or complete tranmission for a reasonable price,...let me know if ya have something and can help, it will be much appreciated! Engine is in its build process now,..oh yes, and we're stroking her out with an offset to the "C" crank also,...she outta purr something beautiful when she's done and dropped in!! In addition, I've been making some really good friends with restorers who have been able to appreciate what I'm doing with my '27 T roadster modified,...went to Herb Kephart's place, great guy, damn sharp too!,...and hung out for a few hours. Looking forward to meeting up with Zach and some of you other guys at Hershey this year,...looking forward to it!! God bless and GOD SPEED!!
