Road Trip: pics from June 18
7:00 am – Arriving at La Roadster Show at the Pomona Fairplex. Following Chick Koszis in his sweet 55 T bird.
Some of our Road Tour members filing in.
Passed the HAMB group on our way in. Paul & Dorothy went back later to say hello and got a delicious homemade cookie.
Took these for our good friend, John Adams.
Bill Story’s 56 Ford Longroof (wagon). On the Road Tour from San Antonio to Pomona Bill was driving a ’32 Ford roadster (topless). He lives in Pomona so went home and switched the ’32 for this GORGEOUS car. Modifications galore and extremely well done. It’s for sale – we can get in touch with Bill if you want more information.
Bill Story’s ’56 wagon – Note the modified bumper bead line around the exhaust, the body line around the license plate.
Engine compartment of Bill’s ’56 wagon.
Dave Schaub is driving this ’32 Roadster 49 states in 7 days and all to benefit Ronald McDonald House! To sponsor or to find out more about him, check out his website at www.49in7.com
Our Road Tour group (that’s the Welder Series coupe on the corner). The tent was provided by Street Rodder Magazine – nice touch and much appreciated later when the sun burned through.
At the Swap Meet – ’34 Ford Vicky $55,000
Tommy Ivo’s slingshot dragster. They fired several of these dragsters during the day (a “cacklefest”) and since we happened to be parked across the aisle, all conversation ceased during that time. Dorothy thinks it was a guy thing for sure!
Chuck Lombardo, Jr. tricked out our Welder Series #2050 Ford motor mounts. Pretty sharp, don’t you think?
Neat cover for the tire – keeps your pants clean when you sit down.
Note reflection of legs several feet away (is that a pun?). Very straight and clear (paint not legs and not feet).
Road Tour participant Fast Eddie’s 57 Chev. His passenger was Kent Kottler, who was a friend of Fred Guarjardo’s in San Antonio. We met Fred when we hand delivered a catalog on June 11. As they say, small world.
Road Tour participants Jerry Koch & JC Carrillo. Enjoyed a meal with them early in the tour and continued to find them to be good company.
Rick Love’s 39 Ford Deluxe. Rick, Vintage Air VP, was a great leader and kept us on track for a good portion of the drive. He worked hard on planning the tour and it certainly paid off. Thanks, Rick.
Road Tour Participants – The Hernandez family from Texas in their ’34 Pontiac.
Road Tour Participants – Stan & Clifford Friesen from Texas in their ’67 Camaro. A couple of breakfasts and other conversations with this father & son. Great guys.
Jerry Dixey – Street Rodder Magazine host & leader of our Road Tour in this ’55 Chev. Jerry travels from one Road Tour to another. Forgot to ask him how many miles he puts on this car each year. Jerry and several other cars were leaving on Sunday for the next tour to Pueblo, CO. See you in Louisville, Jerry. Thanks for a great job.
