  1. What's not to like about a HEMI-powered Deuce Hiboy? :D ...

  2. Erik & Okansa Hansen's Deuce Fordor (built by Tim Strange at Strange Motion Rod & Custom) was a "Finalist" for the "2018 America's Most Beautiful Street Rod" award:

  4. This was a good time. I hadn't been in a long time. I went to the first show 32 years ago in the back seat of my parent's '37 before my first birthday & again when I was maybe 11 or 12.

  6. Beppie -

    The honor & pleasure is all mine!

    Your 3w is simply the "Bitchin-est" ... my father would have loved it ... a true HOT ROD that is driven! ... and an owner that "get's it".

    I don't spend much time on the internet, so I just happened upon this thread today. Wow. Best event coverage I've ever seen. RatFink, not only do you know how to take great car photos, but you also have a very good eye for great rods and customs. I walked and cruised that fairgrounds for three full days, and didn't even see about a third of those cars. Excellent. And Todd, you sort of stole the thread, but with excellent amplification. You learned quite well at your father's knee. But even more than the excellent photos and info, this event--and especially this pinpointed coverage of it--makes me feel relieved and encouraged that the rod and custom world is thriving (despite so much else...). This includes--as you so well show--plenty of good oldies still on the road, looking good, and participating. Plus plenty of great new builds, both traditional and contemporary, with plenty of tasty new ideas. Yes, yes. Thankyou, thankyou.

  15. I wholeheartedly agree!

    Pat - Thanks for the kind words ... much appreciated! ... and yes, I did sort of steal @49ratfink's thread ... but only after asking his permission (i.e., Mike & I have been friends since the late '70s).
