Our May Putt to Bicuits Cafe was a great success. Lots of club members attended joined by friends and friends of friends. We sat outside on the patio and social distancing rules were followed, wait staff wore masks and the menus were disposable as were the condiments, etc. No more than 10 people in a group and the tables were spaced 6 feet apart. Food was great and the wait staff was friendly and efficient! Thanks go to Gene and Margaret Maione for putting this together.

Our Hot rod community recently lost one of our own, a genuine hot rodder, Eddie Aston.Eddie, born and raised in Southern California, was involved in Hot Rodding as soon as he was able to drive, (and secretly before that). There are so many great stories of Eddie, including him hot rodding his dad’s brand new 56 Ford pickup to driving cross country with Jack Stewart in a 1923 Dodge roadster. Eddie and Joanne met in 1964, Eddie joined the LA Roadster club in 1965 and they married in 1966. Eddie’s family (his two children and wife of 53 years, Joanne), were always supportive and involved in Eddie’s hot rodding pursuits.  Joanne even had a few Hot Rods of her own as daily drivers,  like the Corvair with the chevy V8 in the front, ‘Old Hessie’ a 1956 Ford Truck and ‘Harriet the Charriot’ a 1951 Chevy Styleline coupe.  Eddie started his professional career at the LA times (don’t tell his boss but Eddie even hot rodded his company car).  In his professional life Eddie pursued a variety of careers, owning a mobile home park in Bend, Oregon and as a motor home company executive in Knoxville, Tennessee. Eddie and Joanne put together and held a large annual hot rod event in Bend that drew many in the hobby.   Eddie at one time was the president of the LA Roadsters. Eddie’s taste in Hot rods ran the gamut from mild to wild, he loved being different.  Eddie loved driving fast (hence the name Fast Eddie), being busy, and always ready to go at the drop of the hat.

Eddie was and will be remembered as a great friend and consummate Hot Rodder
