reRun… Leno’s Hot Rod MG TD

mqdefaultSunday afternoon, after Football… Checking all my email addresses, hoping someone would write… YouTube did, so I’m checking out
Jay Leno and his ’52 MG TD HotRod… This MG is all HotRod.
I love the classic Fendered Roadster look, and american sound.

I’m a small car guy, and I have HotRodded British cars before… They really are small.
Jay Leno gets a little bitchy about the legroom as he hangs out with the builder.
— It’s a well produced Hot Rod Story. Crank up the volume! … WATCH IT HERE

From The 2015 Rods ‘N Rhodies Invitational…

Another Rods ‘N Rhodies is in the books.
What a great weekend. We had 103 cars from all over Oregon, plus amazing cars from British Columbia, Washington, and California.
Best of Show is that little dark green ’36 Ford coupe. Great fun for me was getting a ride in the winner down to Mo’s where we did a photo shoot for next years poster. There were many well deserved Merchant awards, and lots of volunteers hustling around. Here are a few of my pictures.

Best Coastal Cruiser 2015…

Oregon Coast Hot Rods will again Award the coveted Best Coastal Cruiser at the Rods ‘N Rhodes Invitational Car Show on Sept 9-10.

From my Facebook Post 2015:
Previously on Oregon Coast Hot Rods {…Oregon Coast Hot Rods will be presenting a Merchant Award this year. “Best Coastal Cruiser”.} This was as tough as I had feared. I was close with a sweet Chevy II, a 51 Chevy hauler, and a few others. I love vintage cars, more than bling. I just kept coming back to the ’51 Chevy Suburban. It is owned by Dave Surmon and his wife Linda from Albany OR. This Suburban started life in the Air Force. After it was discharged it got a job as a School Bus. Then it dropped out and became a Hippie Hauler in Berkeley, with Rainbows and Flowers no doubt. The remnants were picked up, and taken to a farm where its new owners did extensive restoration and upgrades. Today, with Dave’s help, it is a fabulous cruiser with lots of room for family and fun.
