Rose Bowl Swap Meet in the morning

Vanner Down!!!!

A blow out in a loaded van nearly 50 years old is not a good thing and at freeway speeds it was enough to make my butt pucker.  Who knew those 12 year old off road tires were no good?  Being broke down on the side of the 405 always sucks................

Organ Donor

I saw this thing at the local pick-a-part a few months back.  It was really  Once they are in, they can never leave in one piece.  So..I did the next best thing to actually saving it and driving it.  I picked the bones for any piece of meat that would make my van a little nicer.  I actually got a head liner out  of this thing..never even seen one before

Morning Find......

I always get excited when I find an old car club plaque.  They're just neat.  This one isn't the greatest but still original and still cool.

Some days just turn out better than others

Buying out old parts stashes is always a lot of fun.  Generally you have to take it all, the good, bad and the ugly.  I got a little bit of all three in this lot.  That 80's beemer is ugly as hell!

Sometimes if your lucky things come wrapped up in old filthy tube socks!  What could it be?

Could it really be?  Are those really Vincent header pipes?  WOW! 

It goes to show that you really never know what is hidden in boxes and milk crates hidden in old garages.

So Long Chief.........

I just finished an estate sale for a man that passed in my old neighborhood.  As a kid we all just called him Chief.  I remember being a little afraid of him when I was younger.  Not that he was mean or anything, he just had a certain way about him.  I am glad to have gotten to know him as an adult because I always really liked talking to him.  I would often run in to him while visiting my parents.  Chief was a cornerstone on the street, the last original owner and will be missed.  He didn't want a funeral and there was none.  I just thought that I would share a few photos that I found in his stuff and wish him farewell.  So Long Chief.................
