  3. No issue there. The flooding happens often in the Jersey shore towns. They'll be back up to speed in no time.

    Rooms around Grover Beach and Pismo area are packing up quickly. It took me awhile last night to find a room. Currently, I am going through my whole ’30 roadster to ensure it is mechanically sound. I will be driving from Ontario to Pismo which is about a 230 mile trip up the 101 for me.

    Does anyone know where the actual race track is going to be laid out in relationship to the Pismo Beach Golf Course? It would be nice to know so one could get a feel for where you want to stay at ... it would also be nice to get a reply to a private message on this subject.

    Kustomrama's Customs by the Sea and the Race of Gentlemen are coming to California!!! Submissions have started to come in for both shows, presenting the first Featured Ride of the season: Bill Pearce's 1939 Ford Convertible - a Hacienda Heights, California Survivor Custom. Bill's Ford was restyled in the late 1940s or the early 1950s, and the list of modifications includes a channeled body, a chopped windshield frame and a padded top by Carson Top Shop. A great custom! The car is currently owned by Bill's grandson Duane Perdoza, who will attend the Pismo show with the car!

    We have been driving cars on the sands of Pismo Beach for 50+ years.
    TROG Beach Racing will be great for the area.
    Got my hotel reserved already.

    Very cool. Your driver needs a booster seat though.

    All campgrounds are off island, they're all suitable for a weekend of roughing it.

    Woo hoo! Every year Tony aka Flash spends countless hours locked inside a damp basement with no windows to bring you these fantastic Driver/Rider cards. Come to the race in June and buy the poor guy a beer.
