Low-key fun in the sun day featuring a signature Vallejo breeze making the whole thing rather pleasant indeed. The Vallejo Elks Lodge made a gracious host with a lovely uncommon place to sit and as far as car shows go, this one was most comfortable. We met some characters! Sport, the gentleman who owns this 1953 Kaiser Deluxe, shared that he found this girl on eBay for $610 closing bid out of Kansas. We all agree to enjoy the way she has rusted, and the pin-stripping he added is simple beauty capturing my heart for favored car of the day. Sport says of his choice to grass the floorboard: “I like to feel the grass between my toes when I drive.” Brilliant!
Shane broke his camera at a waterfall shoot some weeks ago, you may or may not one day see those images on this blog, so we snapped a few images with a little Sony. Excuse the quality while the real camera is at the shop.
Back to rust! The gentleman who owns this truck and hood ornament tells me he pulled this gun out of his back field when clearing a fence. He thought it a fortunate find and had to mount it to his project car. We marvel at the history of the gun and why ever it was once buried. I’ve got to adore the personality true artists incorporate into whatever projects they set sight upon. This is my favorite story of the day.
Matt Martin and Trevor Holmes made the trek down from Grass Valley to join this easy day. What a treat to roll down the road in caravan with Matt as well as my dad and his truck. Cruising is not nearly as pleasurable as the face time we enjoyed chatting with these friends for whom I have developed heart-felt affection.
