    Well I ran up to the barn where my car is being stored at the moment and laid out my number with some Duct Tape! I can not wait to bring it home this weekend then I can get my ass in gear on it.

  15. I can't believe Steve finally builds a hot rod. Not to tall I guess after all.

    I'm calling it, the "Sore Thumb" as this is what Steve will look like sticking out of his new ride going down the beach.

    Just as I pulled my touring in to work on it Mark aka MJW sent me this inspirational picture. I had seen it before, but now I really get it.

  20. I know that John Sizemore has contacted the powers that be, but I want to officially throw my hat in the ring for October as John's alternate with my 1922 Chevrolet 490 speedster. She certainly won't be the fastest car on the sand, but she's got plenty of character :) Of course, my 81 year old father would LOVE to see his son race on the same beach that he watched WWII fighter pilots fly target practice runs over the Atlantic as a little boy (his great grandparents had a place on Cresse Ave) :D!

    First coat of paint on the old girl. May not make the cut to race but she'll still be there bombing around the streets.

    Just got my weekend passes. Booked my hotel months ago. Working feverishly on my build to get it ready to cruise. Alas, no racing for my '31 Tudor as it's a Hot Rod and not a racer according to rules. Who cares? Gonna have a frigging blast. Can't wait.
