Yet another event this past Saturday at The Reserve.... Retirement home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Entrants were limited to 35 vehicles. There was a parade around the facility for residents to see the car's. Also included was fresh soft taco's to munch on. There was quite a selection of cars from antique to modern. We had 2 Corvairs here this day also. As usual our Corvair's get a lot of attention.drinking smiley No awards, as that seems to be what most owner's like these days.
Made for a nice day-event, even tho it was only from 10:00 to 1:00. Kind of like most cars & coffee events.

smileys with beer

I have a new system. So far this is as reduced as I can get them. It has been a challenge to compress-reduce them enough for this system we have here to even attach to a post.
I'll keep working on it. I wish the techno geeks would stop reinventing their mouse traps!angry smiley

My 2 cents worth. You just go right ahead and keep your picture size the same. I can't tell what wheel covers are on the Rampy in Matt's offering.

I agree with Wagon Master. Although Dave's photos are just slightly wide, Matt's don't provide enough detail.


When people post pics with problems, many times the photos are way too small to even see anything.

I saved the image to my desktop. opened it in Windows "Paint". Changed the size from 1440 to 950 horizontal width.

I think Paint is the easiest method of resizing for forum display.

Sorry for being late to this discussion.
Been gone for a week, but I have to agree with Richard on this one.
Only I make mine 1000 on the width.
That size MAXIMIZES viewing width, without going past the edge.

Off to another local Cars & Coffee. This is the one literally a block from my house. Cars ae parked along a rarely used side street.
There is a building where a local works on his street rods. So we have a focal point.
Now... If I had a building or at least a 5+ car garage I would definitely have a T-Bucket!
Ever since I saw the one Doug MClure drove in the movie Lively Set....

Been many years since I thought about it, but when I was just a kid, there were RARE occasions when my older brother would take me out Cruising with him.
On the Main drag through town, there was a small, corner used car lot.
It had a small two car showroom, and there was a wild T-Bucket on display there.
Someone had stuffed a Big-Block Mopar engine into it.
It had a polished aluminum Beer-Keg gas tank hanging on the back, and highly polished Long-Tube Cross-Ram intake runners.
The carbs hung out past the frame rails!
To a young kid, that was the ULTIMATE machine. eye popping smiley

Well... Ya can't always get a good parking spot.
This past Cars & Coffee is an example,
We wound up parking Dainer's Rampside way out at the end of the lot. Kinda of far away from the main assembly area and the open show room for a local high end collectors car owners fancy foo foo cars.
Interestingly there were at least 2 movie cars that stood out.
From the movie Ford vs Farrari, There was the Porsche and one of the GT40's on display.
These are prop cars, so the GT40 had a Chevy V8 and the body was studio aged to look like it had just finished the race.
Fun stuff. You never know what will show up at a Car's & Coffee event!

Nice.
I wish Car events were a happening around here. sad smiley
We have to make our own. eye rolling smiley
Just today, we were discussing having a Parade of Classics/Cruise around the community.
We are thinking of asking for community member to donate canned goods to the local food-bank, and we will collect them at the curbside, as we cruise past their houses.

"I wish Car events were a happening around here."

This particular event (Conejo Cars & Coffee) had been shut down for about six months. As a work around they did have a few "in car" cruises. This was the first time it re-opened and it was at a new location. It seemed like just last week I looked at their site and they said the event was still cancelled. Then on Saturday my neighbor texted me to ask if I was there (what?). I should have gotten a clue when my neighbor drove buy at 7AM in his '56 Ford Gasser.

So I have a couple really pristine FC gas tank mounting straps that I found in my stash of parts in the garage loft.
Dainer's Rampside is down to details here and there these days.
So I'm about to clean these up and paint them the semi-flat Black like original.
The straps in the Rampy are vary good, but these are like new condition, but for some mild surface rust.
So, little projects continue.
It's EZ Car Lift time! thumbs up

Photo's later.
