Former Bradford Roadster in Street Rodder

The former Bradford roadster was pictured in the latest issue of Street Rodder in their LA Roadsters Show coverage.  It looks like it's been completed.

Guy Gray made a trip to Billetproof Antioch last weekend, representing the Slo Poks at the final Billetproof show of the year.  He made a clock with a drum brake backing plate and decorated with Hot Wheels of 2 famous local hot rods, the Coonrod Willys and the Orange Crate.  The Competition Car winner also received a copy of
"The Brotherhood of Speed".  Thanks Guy for making a Slo Poks showing, and for being brave enough to venture that far in the Metro!

Uptown Village Show and Shine proceeds presentation

On Thursday at 1 PM, a group of Poks including Pete, Briz, Tom Dement, Pledge Don, Pledge Tom, Jim, Finn, Rev, Mike Grimm and your "Club Reporter" brought school supplies and a check in hot rods and delivered them to Hough Elementary.  This was the presentation of the proceeds from the August 20th Uptown Village Show and Shine.  With the kids all lined up to greet us, we rumbled down the street and parked in front of the school.  This year, thanks to planning by Finnski, the kids not only got to get "hands on" in hauling the supplies into the school, but to get "hands on" with the hot rods.  Special thanks to Briz, Pete and Mike for letting the kids have a close encounter with a hot rod.  There is nothing like seeing dozens of kids parade through a $100K Woody Wagon!  The Hough Elementary Principle and Hough Foundation representatives were on hand to accept the check.  The kids made cool Thank Yous for the Poks.  Seeing the kids excitement when experiencing hot rods and hot rodders was the best.  It makes all the  hours we put in to make the Uptown Village Show and Shine happen sooo worth while.

Slo Poks at Rod Run to the End of the World

We had a good turnout of Poks for the 2016 Rod Run to the End of the World by the Beach Barrons.  Pledge Lonnie Moss and Springer got up early and staked out an area large enough for 12+ cars, and we filled it up.  Springman took home a trophy for "10 Beers", keeping the Poks on the Beach Barron's radar.  The day was nearly perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and most important, dry!  Didn't hear an official car/spectator count, but the field was PACKED!  What makes this run so cool is all of the club participation.
Congrats Paul on your win!

Ran into a familiar friend!  The plaque is on the fuel tank below the license plate.

Slo Poks at Kalama

The Untouchables Car Club show in Kalama on Sunday was greeted with some great weather (read that not smoking hot).  Even after a more than full day of hot rods at our Uptown Village Show, and definitely plenty of heat, some die hard Slo Poks were up bright at early and on the streets of Kalama.  Of the three Slo Poks cars in attendance, two were winners!  Gary Trenner's '32 3W won it's first trophy and Chuck and Kay's Cadillac was also a winner.  Other Poks noted "Poking" around were pledge Tom Phillips with his '34, Milt and Bart.  Thanks to Bianca for the pictures.
It was a very nice 350 car show.
