Gas up, Polish the Brass and Get Out to see the largest car show in SoCal. It's always be a great show of many many early brass cars of all makes and models.

Cars 1932 and earlier are welcomed for the tour of the Pasadena and Rosebowl area in a festive manner of the holidays. If you can't attend the tour I suggest driving to our meeting place under the SCE power lines off the 210 freeway and Foolhill to look at the many other cars that just show up. Get there before we leave at 9:00 to feast your eyes.

I think this year is the 56th year of the annual event.
Perfect weather is always gaurranteed!

See You THERE!

Gene:

Hope that pictures will be posted of the Holiday Motor Excursion. Nothing like this on the East Coast, lest the coastal New Jersey area. I will be bringing in the New Year driving my '26 Runabout,,,,, at least around the block.

I know your T will be running the best with the E-Timer ignition. Thanks for your faith in the E-Timer & spread the word.

I believe Jay Leno may be running a E-Timer shortly in his '25 Runabout he loves so much.

We're driving the '24 Studebaker as it holds more folks than my '13 Speedster. I plan to shoot a video & will post the Youtube link if all goes well. See you Saturday!

I'm going to be driving up from Lomita, about 25 miles. Gotta leave at 5:30 am. It's going to be cold at that hour. Last year it rained, so didn't drive a T. I don't know where the perfect weather guaranteed comes from, I've been caught in the rain there several times!

Any body got FOG Lights??

It's been so foggy here thelast couple of day you need a knife of shovel to get thru it.

Won't be nice for the newly polished brass but the that's life in Surf City.

Ralph and I are going to have another cup of coffee and wait till about 7 before leaving.
Hoping to see Tom, Larry, Scott, Bill and others from the OC and Long Beach club there.

Make sure to say Hi if we miss you

Wanted to attend with my car but can't get the -- newly flared -- leaking fuel line fixed. Darn!
Will try to be there at around 7:45 anyway, to soak in the good vibes.
