    Hello,


    My wife and I like getting out when we can, although we are in the most susceptible category for the pandemic. But, going for short drives to the ocean always makes life seem a little less awful. The calm, blue ocean and wave action tells us that life and society will move on despite some setbacks we have not experienced before.

    One day, we saw a cool Chevy truck parked by the side of the road. It had a nice stance and looked to be recently returned from a stint at the local tire shop. The So Cal Tire Shops are plentiful, but Tucker Tire in Laguna Niguel and Fonseca's Tire Shop/Auto Repair in San Clemente, have been around for many, many years of quality service. Experienced from each other...two of the best shops...IOHO

    Jnaki

    So, either the current owner is a transplant from Bend, OR, now living in So Cal. Or, he bought the cool truck from someone in Bend, OR. Any PNW or Oregon folks know anything about the history of the truck or perhaps the business of the former owner? Something about “Sea Stacks?”

    Got this on a trip to the junkyard this week. If you check out the lower door you can see emergency vehicle. I’m sure under the top logo was a big 500. 63D3A89F-432F-475F-98A0-641BACDA8F20.jpeg

    My first attempt at lettering on my '39 Chevy. Far from perfect, but neither is the car.

    Most hot rodders today are used to professional, computer aided, gold leaf lettering to make a ride
    look "authentic". Back in 1967 when I had no extra money to spare and wanted to be "cool on the street",
    I used white contact paper, cut out my design on the living room floor using scissors, and put it on my car.
    I suppose a lot of things have changed for the better..... pumpkin 2.jpg

    I’ve lived in Oregon for over 30 years and never heard of a sea stack. I guess I need to get out more.
