What's up neighbor? Thanks for visiting my cardomain site and showing your appreciation for my work. Since you are in the LA/Gardena area do you ever make it down to the meet and greet at Ricky's and Ronnies on Friday night?

Bob's Big Boy

There was a big crowd of vintage vehicles (and bikes) at the Bob's Big Boy in Burbank one evening last w/e, don't remember if it was Friday or Saturday, the line waiting was all the way out the door! If the Big Boy in Torrance is anything like it, it looked like a great place to go!

I'm at R&R's every first Friday of the month. Best day to go, gets super packed. The 50/50 drawing can get up to $900 (take home cash).

Cars start to show up around 4 p.m. and it ends at 8:30 p.m. with the 50/50 drawing. But, some people still hang around after 8:30. K Earth 101 usually does a live brodcast from there also with there own prizes for free. Money for the 50/50 and other prizes always go to a good charitable cause.
Burgers and food at R&R's is super good too!

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Gentlemen, we need to pick a place even if its a parking lot, so we can have a simple meet and greet. Dont have to have food and drinks for the first one.
Something to find out who is your neighbor, trade ideas and information.
I will go to Rickys in Harbor City by Wednesday the 7th and find out some information. You guys think of a dat for this month, Nov.
Will this work for you guys?

yeah, its the 805-> 163s->Friars Road, which runs straight into it. [future reference]

.. as far as meet location goes, I can't do LA - i can't afford that kind of $ for gas right now. Especially in one of the trucks.

Hey Huero,

Have I met you before, because I'm always at R&R, although I did not make it this weekend. I'm the short bald black guy with the grey and white 55 Chevy 210 with the 454 fuel injected engine with the plates that say BAMM55. I usually roll with two other guys with a red and white 55 belaire with air bags, and silver and white 56 belaire. If not maybe I'll met you next time I'm there. Anyway where is this met and great going to be? I'm I invited.

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Thats true - but we're looking at moving south -- like the santee area or fwy 56..

My vote, as far as meets go, is an early December meet -- it may be a little cooler [temperature wise], but we will have 'full custody' of our panel truck
