    My dad just got back from driving his 1940 Ford custom from Seattle to L.A.(Pomona) for the GNRS with it's all stock 1940 Ford running gear and the two dogs. :)

    Getting ready...oil change, adding defrost tubes, etc.

  4. That's awesome, you gotta be proud of your pop. I was just thinking about how shitty it was getting stuck in the rpu in that downpour Sunday night getting out of the GNRS. Then I read this post. I'm a weenie.

    I know it's not the topic, but somebody needs to get that car and a good photographer togethter. On topic, it had to be one of those trips of a lifetime. Thanks for sharing.
     
  23. There is nothing better than a dad you love and and a hobbie you both love. Great story on the trip.

    I saw you guys pulling in and stopped dead in my tracks and just starred till you turned the corner. What an amazing custom. I really really really like it.

    Your dad rocks! What an awesome trip that must have been. Our boring drive from LA to Phoenix in a Scion couldn't have been over sooner. Gotta do it in a hot rod and enjoy the ride next time.
