Moan (Pasadena prices) ... at least they're coming down now for those of us who might try to buy ... verrrry slowly though!

I'm new here, so could you tell me what is the "Pomona Swap Meet" and which Sunday?

Thanks Dude(s).

There's that 50's styled diner in Harbor City, Rickey's (I think thats the name) on the corner of Normandie and Sepulveda. they have a lot of Hotrod meetings there. Probably would have to make arangements with them to get a date. Also what kind of compression are you getting with that 350 block and 283 heads? I mention that to a guy who might build an engine for me and he seemed to be against it.
Thanks

Rickey's would be pretty Ideal huh? Ive heard their cruise nights are pretty cool....Ill look into that place as well. As for the CR with the 283 heads, that is no more but I tell you what, she ran like a bat outta hell before they went! hehehehe...Im sure it had to be over 11:1 though.

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Hey guys, as for the Nov. 10th date I was thinking we could use the Tecolote Shores part of Mission Bay, it has some area for the kids, view of the bay, fire pits, bathrooms, parking and shade. heres the link to the parks and recreation page for it. Let me know what you guys think and or if any of the other spots are better. http://www.sandiego.gov/park-and-rec...teshores.shtml

My 283 is going to take a dump soon soI thought about using the heads on a 350 block. Would not be the engine of choice to cruise to Vegas, but light to light would be awsome. LOL

Right near Adam's Square. It's ... well ... a hill, a bump in the landscape! Basically, South of the 134 and North of downtown, East of Griffith Park and nestled inside the triangle of the 2/5/134 freeways. It's cute, actually, and not too expensive by L.A. standards.

Here's some reading, including an old article from the L.A. Times (prices have more than doubled since then).

Hey NF! If you mean the San Diego November event, I won't make it. If you're talking about something else nearer to L.A. county, I'ld love to meet up with some of the guys as a n00b here and will do my best to fit in with any plans the revered members from the area will come up with! Thanks. Kex.

Not that San Diego is a bad spot. Why was that picked anyway? Just curious.

I hadn't given my opinion on nov 10th for a while because a family thing came up on that weekend and I would not be able to go. I would still like to participate in something but that weekend is a no go for me.

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Whoa! Just found this site... Orange Co here, got a couple of projects in the works; daily driver is '86 C3500 1-ton recently aquired from lein-sale... many headaches but coming along. Then I'm planning a resto on my old '77 C20 longbed Stepside that I've owned for 23 yrs. Great site, looking forward!

Detailing in Glendale

Hey guys, I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right spot here, but I've just been trying to find a good place that charges reasonable prices for a good detail of the interior (and possibly exterior, at some stage, but I mostly do that myself ... ahem ... when I do it, that is!). Anyone ever heard of Courtland's? There at 642 Sonora Ave (Western Ave. exit on the 5) and even have a website www.courtlandsautodetail.com.

When I dropped off my "other" car (which I won't mention here or I might get banned) they had two or three old Chevrolet trucks being worked on. I kinda liked the feel of the place (even if it was a bit untidy) but I was just wondering if anybody new any good addresses locally where I could get car & truck interior detailing done properly without taking out a bank loan and/or if anybody has heard of Courtland's.
