For those travelling through BC and NW WA area here's a list of rod run dates that may tie into your travels:

Event List

For the Pacific Northwest I believe you can find an equivalent for WA/OR at:

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and if not check with perk120@aol.com who appears to be the individual who keeps the list current.

Insuring your vintage Airstream and Cars

I've had a query from one of the members about who provides insurance for Vintage trailers and cars, in particular in AZ. I don't have an issue in Canada as we are forced to use the provincial government's insurance arm (ICBC) for our basic insurance and can purchase optional insurance for our vintage cars. For the trailer I have the basic coverage again from ICBC and use a third party for the options. Insurance on the trailer, fully covered, with replacement value of $12,000 and increase it to 16,000 (Canadian of course so about $47 dollars US ) is just under $150/year.

Hey!

The big Hot Rod show is March 2-4th at the Expo center (next to Seahawk Stadium). Lot's of nice trailer queens and daily drivers.

I'll be there! : >

My wife snuck me down to Mount Vernon/Burlington, WA for the automotive swap meet this past weekend. I have to be careful as I'm not covered for medical insurance out of our province - I hate having this leash on me.

Anyways, there were several cars there for sale that would have made great vintage TV's including a beautiful cream colored 1957 Ford 2dr sedan with later power train. Very nicely done.

As we were leaving and several blocks away we spied a late '50's or very early 60's small Airstream (under 20') being towed toward the swap meet. Exterior wise it looked very good at a quick glance. Although I wanted to go back and take a look my chauffeur was insistent that we head back home so I didn't get a chance to take a further look.

For those though who are looking for vintage TV's the automotive swap meets are great places to head to. For those in the Seattle/WA area there's large one at Monroe the May 19th weekend. There's always lots of cars for sale at that one.

You sure have it in wonderful shape. A fellow I worked with had one for a long time and truly enjoyed driving it. I suspect he regrets ever parting ways with it every time he lumbers down the road, all alone, in his very large SUV, and more importantly, with gas over $4.00/gal here.

2007 Pigeon Forge Tn Rod Run

These are not mine, but I just got back from the Rod Run. Thousands of cars for you guys to drool over. If you have never been, its worth the trip. You have to book your room at least up to six months in advance. Here are a few of the oddities and a nice truck and chopper I saw. Have lots more of oldies, but too many to post.

What is the first green truck. I looks like the love child of an Avalanche and an Excalibur.

Hey S.T.

Neat pictures. It's surprising what shows up at these shows - everything from the "gotta have a 32 Ford" to the "what the heck is that?" crowd. I like to look at the works in progress, the less common vehicles, and the ones that would fill a niche' in my wishes.

Thanks for sharing - great stuff to get the blood pumping just before the "season".

Barry

My husband will like to see all of the pictures on this thread. We have a '65 Malibu SS Convertible, and a '48 Willys Jeepster that is waiting to be street rodded for our daughter (she is years away from driving, but she is excited to start helping her dad with it). We also have an '86 Porsche 928. I forgot when I first posted this...my husband also has a '72 BMW R 50 motorcycle. I try not to think about it! It worries me when he drives it.
My husband also loves vintage wooden boats, but that is another story!

Anyone been to the Keels and Wheels car and boat show in Houston? It has a great variety of classic, vintage, and unique cars and boats. Texas Concours d'Elegance

At the time I worked for Ford in the early 1980's, I had put together a 1950 F1 pickup. I removed the OEM 90 horsepower flathead V8 and 3 on the tree manual transmission, and replaced them with a 351 Cleveland and a cast iron FMX automatic. It was pretty cool rolling into the office every morning with it, I eventually sold it to one of the other employees there. For all I know, it's still running around Louisville to this day.
Our current tow vehicle, and my daily driver, is our 21 year old F250 diesel. I have a soft spot in my heart for it, since I had a small hand in its design.

Oh, boy, where to start???

My husband and I were both bitten by the Triumph bug before we met (actually HOW we met), we both love vehicles that are different and we both have no restraint!!!

We have:

1945 Ford 2N tractor (the 'lil workhorse around the property)
1947 Simca 5 (just sold it, sniff, sniff)
1948 1800 Roadster (Triumph, aluminum-bodied!)
1951 Dodge B3B Pickup (basically restored but still in pieces--Brad's working on it right now)
1953 Triumph Mayflower (just sold this one, but have another two-one parts car and one with an MG drive train, of all things! Don't ask me why--I would really like to know, too. We bought it like that, for the body.)
1953 1-ton panel (when restored, we will tow the Excella car hauler with this)
1954 Wagemaker Wolverine (cool 14' wooden boat)
1956 TR3 based Devin (awesome fiberglass car most people race--it's for sale)
1957 TR3 Vintage Racer (Brad's vintage-racer-in-the-works)
1958 Isetta (given to me on Valentine's Day! Upcoming restoration project.)
1960 John Deere 440 ICD Crawler (needs engine rebuild)
1962 TR4 (Brad's soon-to-be daily driver)
1963 TR3B (no longer a project--sold most of the parts and stuff)
1963 Case 530CK Backhoe (corral-cleaning and yard-filling duties)
1963 TR4 Vintage Racer (was to be my next racecar, but I am happy with my Spitfire!)
1964 Spitfire 4 (Brad restored this completely and it wins concours)
1964 Amphicar (my favorite! Can't wait to get it restored!!!)
1965 Herald (for sale--mostly complete & possibly running)
1967 Spitfire Vintage Racer (my vintage racecar "Tristan")
1968 Spitfire MK3 (my street driver, also for sale)
1968 Ford F600 Utility Dumper (corral-cleaning and dump duties)
1969 Spitfire MK3 (my next street Spitfire)
1974 Airstream Excella 500 (totally gutted; to be a two-car hauler)
1980 TR7 Spider (my next daily driver--engine is rebuilt and it is almost ready to go)
1980 TR7 Anniversary Edition (parts car for the Spider--we also have a coupe)
1983 Winnebago Brave (our SOB--also for sale)

1968 Triumph TR250 project
1979 Jeep Cherokee (full-size, two-door and for sale)
1988 Ford F250 diesel (current big TV)
1994 Honda Civic EX (Brad's daily driver and current toad)
2002 Dodge Dakota (my daily driver & current smaller TV)
I sold my beloved sport bike (1988 Kawasaki EX500) for a concrete garage floor when we moved to Arkansas, sniff sniff. Sport bikes and gravel roads really don't go together...

Along with all of this insanity, we have a 1959 Triumph Tigress scooter (bears used to ride on these in the circus!), a Triumph Tina scooter (smaller than the Tigress but similar), several assorted mopeds, my two Honda Hawk 400 motorcycles (one Hondamatic, one regular shift), two golf carts, a couple Spitfire parts cars, a couple Triumph bicycles (get the theme here????), a Schwinn Spitfire cruiser bicycle, and a super-cool 1949 Batavus moped that looks like Batman would ride it. I don't have a pic of it here but can post one later.

We had a Corvair rampside pickup project we recently sold. That was the coolness. You could load stuff in the side of the truck bed with a built-in ramp.

We both realized we have WAYYYY too much stuff to ever get to before we both pass on, so we are lightening our load by selling what we can bear to and keeping the really special ones (that would include Big Al, our 310. )

Moosetags, is that a GT6 peeping out from behind your gorgeous Isetta? I want to paint our Isetta yellow, too--it's so cheerful! We are both dying to eventually get a Delorean! One day...

bhappy, we are trying to make it down for Wheels and Keels! It looks awesome, but we have not been able to make it the last few years due to other things going on.

Susan
