1957 All Original Single Cab with 43K Original Miles !!!!

It's not very often you come across a Monster like this. 1957 ALL original Single Cab. Seriously, it's ALL original.  It also reads 43,000 miles on the odemeter!!!  There is SO much paint on this ride, it's insane!!!  The bumpers are very nice as well the 15" wheels, which sport the original hubcaps to this truck. A true survivor. It still has the dove blue paint in the middle of the front emblem. Most folks don't know this, but this is how they came from the factory.

While checking out $Mike's newest addition, we were both lucky to have The Professor come over for a lecture and a learning session on  the preservation of original paint and original condition cars. We learned a lot for Professor Linda as he taught us all the tricks my Dad had mentioned to me a while back. Any hoot, it was a learning experience and it the end ........ both $Mike and I got THE HOLY GRAIL GARAGE baseball caps.  You can bet I will be sporting mine to the up coming OCTO meeting.  OKAY.

Check out Linda chatting us up on how he's going to take over the world. Though he looks like he was roughed up the night before!!?? Wink

A vist from France ........... PUTAIN!!!!!

So I get this email from Yohann that he is in LA!? What!!?? He was running around town putting deals together and closing them as well. I asked him why he was SO damn busy?? He told me he joined an up and coming firm who is taking over the VW scene. If any of you guys out there know Yohann, you know he's a pretty calm laid back guy. But he seemed really RUTHLESS during this visit!!??  It all made sense once he put his baseball cap on before seeing his next client.

See for yourself ................  PUTAIN !!!!!!!!!!

Pomona Auto Antique Swapmeet

What a way to start off the new year. Haven't been to a P-Town Swapmeet since the June event. The weather was incredible!!! While in other parts of the world its freezing ass cold, in Sur Califas it was in the low 80's with plenty of sunshine. Great day for a walk around the entire event. Which I did.

This event usually gets rained on or it's freezing ass cold. I've been there when its so cold, your feet hurt!! JODER!! But not this event. This one was full with lots of cool cars and displays. Not much at all in the VW swap area, as its been like this for the past 15 years or so. This is more of a social gathering and a get together bbq with friends. As always, the GERMAN FOLKS had the fiesta going and loaded with tons of food (hmmm tacos) and beers!

Good Times.
