Cruiser Newser - April 2017

It was almost sunny today. The little yellow daffodils are popping out and even a few early Rhodies. That means it's almost Cruisin' time. 

Time to pull the cover off the old Hot Rod and get ready for the next round. For me, I've  been working on a long list of small things I always wanted to get around to. Mostly electrical, curled up under the dash board, moving wiring, replacing a bad gauge, and generally making it tidy. You know how it is with Vintage Hot Rods. Things I could have done better in the first place. In April, I will make my annual trek to Mark's shop in Modesto. My Opinion has always been... Hot Rods are more fun with a clutch. So the mighty TH400 is out and a trick 5 speed with a long overdrive is going in.
What are you working on? Head over to the Facebook Group and let us know. Lots of questions, answers, cars for sale, and coastal Hot Rodder Chatter.
