CUSTOM CAR CLUB
Cruisin' with Conrad September 2002
Hello Eagle Rock,
Remember Thomas Strojinís roadster, I wrote about some time ago? Well, it is getting closer to the road. It has been out of the living room for quite awhile, and now getting the final nit-pickin things done.
it is getting closer to the road. I've been
helping out with some classes at
colleges but it has been out of the living room for quite awhile, and
now getting the final nit-pickin things done.
If you forgot, it is a 29 Model A roadster (McGibbons body) on a TCI 32 frame. A built 327 Chevy small block, hooked to a Muncie 4 speed and the final part, to get
the power to the ground, is a Ford 9 inch rear end. A nice set mags with big and little rubber, to give it a nice stance. It has an aluminum, finned Champion dash insert for the gauges, nice old retro look. And we found a set of 42 Plymouth ruby red
taillights, at Buffalo Ford Parts, and Thomas mounted them perfect. So if the creek doesnít rise too much, it will be at
cruise night soon. Thomas is almost to the point of having a hard choice, in what to drive. He also has a 41 Ford 2dr, 56 Chevy 2dr, and a just
acquired 64 Corvair.
Cruise night, on the 31st, went very well. Uncle Max Norris came with his just finished 26 tall T coupe. George Encinas and bride parked the motor
long enough to bring their T-roadster. Rollie came with a T-tub, with A-bone dual carbed engine and 16-inch wires, pure nostalgia. Ronnie Reno came with his 51 down in the weeds 4dr black and silver Chevy. A few more
cars are as follows: 56 Ford panel, 70 LS7 Chevelle, two 31 A-bones- a 4dr and pickup, 53 Ford 2dr sedan with a flathead, and a big window Cuda.
So if you didnít come, you missed out. So take the last Saturday of the month and get down to Jimís Burgers in the evening.
Just Cruisiní Conrad Halvorsen
