I'll be in Pismo that weekend camping at Pismo Coast Village and planning on picking up the new radiator from The Brass Works in Paso Robles for my '39 p/u. Don't know if I'll make it out to the sand for the races but I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of nice cars in town.

Hi Everyone, I saw this shot of Jayson's car in the Gallery on the TROG site that JM linked above.

Beach racing is attributed to Oromond Beach from 1903


And was soon occurring all around the US actually very early on.

Here is a photo from Galveston TX beach race around 1909



and 1913




Pismo Beach 1924



It was quite a big sport back in the day!

Hi Everyone. I guess I'm gonna have to be a square...

Things have come up on the homefront, so a Cali vacation just went off the table.

Have a ton of fun everyone, and keep the photos and posts coming!

Hello all, this should be a great event. Also, the Early Ford V8 Club Western National meet in Bakersfield during the week following should be fun as well. I live up in Northern CA, Specifically Windsor CA. About and hour North of San Fransisco on Hwy 101. Unfortunately , I can't make either event but I will be around town. It seems there will be quite a few people traveling through Northern CA or close. I am making an open offer to anyone who may need help, need a place to stop, or what ever while they are on the rode. I have a truck/trailer , a lift and quite a few parts. I will help however I can. Brendan who posted earlier is this thread also live is this are along with quite a few other car guys and we always welcome visitors. JM35 Sedan, if you want continue your CA trip, please give me a call or touch base with me on here or get a hold of Brendan or Tom Johnston and come on up to Northern CA. That goes for anyone else who wants to come visit who is a like minded car nut. Tom Johnston is leading a tour from the Western National meet back to Northern CA and I am sure anyone could tag along if they want. Between myself, Brendan ,other friends, and our V8 club members we can show you a good time.
Everyone have fun and don't hesitate to call if anyone has any troubles traveling to/from Pismo Beach or Bakersfield.

Got here this afternoon and set up the trailer. Saw a Model T and a 2 dr. sedan with a banger driving through the camp ground along with what I think is a 3 window parked a couple of rows over. Also a couple of nice later models down town near the pier. Can't wait for tomorrow for a better look. Hope the weather holds up.

Hi Everyone. I just had a quick phone call with JM and his travelling accomplice. They're in the rental car heading to Pismo/Grover Beach. I'm with 'em in spirit.

Walked the entire Pismo North campground where the registration is being held this afternoon. So many outstanding cars and M/C's. Bangers, flatties, and a little bit of everything else. Too many cool cars to photo with my crummy cell phone camera. I'm sure others will post some great photos. Did buy the obligatory t shirt, though.
