The 36th Annual SO Rod & Custom Show VISITOR sneak preview!

We are all looking forward to the show next year, and always hope for bigger and better.

Vehicles will come from far & wide. Sharing a sneak preview of one of our 'special' visitors, and also changed our website header photo. So, what do you think? Excited yet? Hope so. Remember to mark your calendars. AND ... to make this even easier, why not visit our CALENDAR, go to the event ... and request an email reminder to be sent to you! It's up to you to select how many days in advance you want the reminder! How good is your memory? One day or 10??? *grin*

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON FEATURED AUTO:  "Thanks to Bill Snook we will have a Ridler finalist in our car show.  It is owned by Bob Komlofske of Prineville, OR.  ... see the picture of the 1953 Chevrolet pickup (on our website). According to Bill, the owner has nearly $375,000 invested."

Spent the weekend spraying Lizard Skin into the interior of the '49'.  Put on three coats.  It took so long to dry that I had to clean the spray gun after each coat. I spent more time cleaning the gun than applying the sound deadener!

Fun at work

I know most of you don't get to work on old cars and hot rods for a living but I get to and I have to tell you it's fun going to the office every day.
After work I even get to roll one of my wrecks up on the lift and turn a screw or two ...

This is work (though some days the ranch does offer other diversions for my hands and mind)
And after work I get to play with my toys ...

Most days Herb comes to play in the shop as well so if you want to find one of us at any time, the best place on the ranch to look is the "Big" shop.


Photo Albums Update

The photo albums on our website have been updated, to make albums that are listed by car dates, rather than by members' names. Check them out! A lot of the images from the 'old' website have gone into an appropriate album. It's great to look back on these 'old' images. Hope you enjoy them. They can be viewed as a slideshow.

fall colors

Linda and I went for a drive to check out the fall colors in Ashland's Lithia Park.  It was very nice. Enjoyed it so much we drove over to the South Medford DQ for an ice cream cone and then drove to Jacksonville and over to Tolo Road in Central Point and back home. What a great day in sunny Southern Oregon.
