We hit the EFS late afternoon cuz I had a participants pass so we got into the show early on Friday which is what I like to do that way I can take some photos before the crowd arrives.

They didn't seem that bad but then again I don't make it a habit of buying FORD parts.:D The guy I was with didn't complain about the prices of the stuff he bought if that is any indication.

Thanks for the post Denise. I wish I had stopped in there during my wild west trip last October.

Denise, is there an early Ford in your future? This site would benefit from you getting a Ford, for sure.

Thanks for the compliment bud!
I really would like a '32 Oldsmobile roadster built in a traditional hot rod style but alas unless I want to give up all the traveling I do with my disposable income it's not going to happen and I can't see myself not traveling for a few years just to save money for another car.

Perhaps a boyfriend with an old Ford might be the ticket huh?? :D

Denise, You may be on to something! :D I think it'd be a pretty major feat to match the style/quality of Big Olds. I checked it out a bunch one afternoon at the Nugget... it's gorgeous.

Anyway... this place could use a little bit of your touch.

While in California...totally different, but same knock-your-eyes-out impact:

The Modern Flathead — Engine parts
9103 East Garvey Avenue
Rosemead, CA 91770
(626) 572-0938

Ignore the name...they run/ran multiple early Ford product lines out of there with a lot of different names. Phone # may or may not still be right (check Elmo Rodge/search HAMB if enlightenment needed), and they are still waiting to see if the computer fad is worth checking out.
Half museum, half unusual speeed equipment/parts store, nothing you'll see elsewhere and far better than Disneyland.
I have dealt with the place since the early '60s...they were an enigma even then. When I finally got to visit, I chose them over the Petersen in my limited time in LA, and have NO regrets.

(PS...if you have Megan along, they sell everything she has ever imagined for her Model A)

Yeah I can see a Flathead Ford V8 powered car in your future Denise, a true Hot Rod Lady Cruiser, great coverage of a really cool shop, thanks for posting.

He's south of the Mason-Dixon line so I'm going to let it slide and chalk it up to good manners as opposed to thinking I'm old. :D
