Problem solving hot rod chassis parts for 40 years.
Road Trip: pics from June 20
Two of the Norwegian Vette Club members who were staying at our same hotel in Kingman AZ.
Their group of 22 guys & gals pull out of the motel for the next leg of their adventure.
We also finish packing the ’32. We’ve carried this one gallon container of gas for emergencies. Haven’t needed it yet, hopefully it stays that way.
Day 17 – 3,739 miles
Approaching Lake Havasu City, AZ. Our friend, Jim Prowse from London, Ontario gave us the names of some friends of his from Lake Havasu City and said we should give them a call.
Syl & Shirley Szucsko’s home & large shop. They were very welcoming and showed us their projects and comfortable motor home that Syl converted from a Greyhound bus. With the extreme the heat, it seems that trying to grow grass is a waste of time. You also save time by not having to mow! What a concept.
Syl & Shirley’s current ride is a ’34 Dodge. Very pretty.

A visit to Speedway Customs in Lake Havasu City.
A visit to Havasu Speed Equipment.
If you were wondering whatever happened to the London Bridge of London England fame, worry no more. It’s safe and sound in Lake Havasu City. Brought over and reassembled brick by brick. A very pretty sight.
Thanks to Syl & Shirley for taking us around. Hope to see you next time you visit Jim & Barb in Ontario. Paul & Dorothy now head for Williams AZ.
Took this for DW, nobody else.
Arrived Williams AZ – neat town on Route 66. This diner had a street rod body on the roof. Phantom ’37 Ford body was made in Quebec! Ignore the pick up truck.
Another place on the main street. Dorothy snapped pictures as we drove through hunting for a “Motor Inn” in keeping with the Route 66 theme.
Here’s what we found. Clean room, good price, walking distance to the heart of town. Straight north from Williams is the Grand Canyon, tomorrow’s adventure. But tonight we’ll wander down the main street of Williams.
As we walked down the street, we heard an amazing guitar player at the diner with the car on the roof. Had to eat here! We stayed until dark listening to Steve Reynolds (www.stevedreynolds.com) as the temperature dropped to low 50’s! Steve Reynolds commented that we were “real troopers” in our short sleeved shirts as everyone else donned sweatshirts & jackets.
