  13. This has got to be one of the best shows in the north west for real traditional hotrods and customs. The weather was perfect and the poker run was very well orginized. This is no parade, its a real cruize. Thanks to Keith and the Swindlers for the invite.

    THANK YOU SWINDLERS !.....I had a great time !.....It was really well organized....great people, food, scenery (Well, I was told by my passenger there was good scenery, but I was to busy "givin'er" tryin' to keep up with you crazy hot rodders !....hahaha !)....And the cars were the best....I didn't see one muscle car, or pink street rod with heart-beat graphics !....It was sooo cool to get so many cars together that are HAMB friendly....Thanks again Swindlers for the invite, I'm spending today recovering from a great time !.....

    Dave,

    I know! I had the '40 ready to go, and our babysitter couldn't make it. I have found it is far more difficult to get the babysitter since we now have two. :)

    Next year...

    Fish has scored a nice pair of milk truck wheels! Dig the tonneau cover too! Thanks for the pics!

  24. Hey Mika,
    No, rear wheels and tires are on loan from Paul Riechlin. He got tired of them sitting around and thought they would look good on the roadster. He also made the tonneau for it as well. You need to get back over here next year for the run.
     
  25. Badass pics. Aewsome cars. The roadster looks so badass Fish. What WAS Gup drivin'?

    I second that! Fish the roadster is bad ass ( as it has always been) just a little different now.
     
  27. Yeah...Fish's car is bad ass. With the tonneau and no windshield, he rules. Too bad he "fagged out" and put the windshield on it...I guess he doesn't want the wind "mussing his locks"...
