Early Friday morning Feb 3rd.
Ron Olmstead, Larry way, Val Muyres, Steve Besore and myself headed out for Pomona and the GNRS. This year our rides were Val’s 40 and Ron’s 35, Steve’s 32 all Fords. Nonmember but good buddy Chip and his co-pilot Judy went with us in the Model A P-up. By the time we got on road out of town I think Val had already burnt a tank of gas. Long way from Sun Lakes to meet with us. Lunch at Cheriako summit (SP) , Then on in to San Dimas.
We checked in our hotel, and then supper at the Roady House restaurant a few doors down from the Early Ford store.
GNRS never disappoints, whatever your hot rod/custom interest, it’s there! And it’s there in multiples and every color combo possible. Vintage builds and new builds some exotic some retro and all perfect. AMBR cars to drivers of every flavor it’s just boggling!
Interesting that some former AMBR cars show up being driven to the event! Love that. Each of the building are a different venue, hard to pick a favorite.
Then there’s about 800-1000 cars outside on Saturday the “big daddy drive in’s”.
Just a spectacular event!
We spotted Terry Scotts x-roadster there, took a photo and talked to new owner (sorry Terry doesn’t sound like you could get it back)
Got some rain in sunny California before stopping for breakfast. Steve’s getting the full Roadster road trip experience.
Other than a nagging valve cover oil leak in the 35, and a dead battery in the 32 we had a reasonable trouble free run to and from.
Ya shoulda been there!
