Problem solving hot rod chassis parts for 40 years.
Road Trip: pics from June 11
Fred & Dorina Guajardo – San Antonio. Met Fred in an unusual way. Hot Rod Hotline sends us names of those who have requested one of our Welder Series’ catalogs. Paul was looking at emails from our San Antonio hotel room and saw that there was a catalog request from Fred Guajardo in SAN ANTONIO. Hey, wouldn’t it be neat to deliver it? Phoned Fred and he said “come on over.” It felt like he, his wife Dorina and daughter Vanessa were long-time friends. They treated us to a wonderful Mexican brunch at a local restaurant! Wish we could deliver all of our catalogs! Think of the postage we’d save and the people we’d meet.
Fred’s 36 Ford pick-up project.
Alamo Hot Rod Parts in San Antonio. Neglected to get a picture when we were here on Thursday so returned for the proof.
A Road Tour participant – first one seen as we approached our hotel in San Antonio (Schertz).
After a quick clean-up of the ’32 & ourselves at the hotel, we meet the other participants at Vintage Air’s facilities.
George Package of Vintage Air takes us on a tour. Quite impressive. We are driving quite comfortably in our ’32 because of a Vintage Air unit.
Vintage Air Showroom with Jack Chisenhall’s 53 Studebaker. This car drove 219 MPH with the air on at Bonneville. Also quite impressive.
Driver meeting #1. Rick Love gives us some road tour instructions for the upcoming days. Jack Chisenhall looks like he’s seriously taking notes so as not to mess up. One of the best instructions: enjoy yourself.
