The California Kid!
is over at Sacramento Vintage!

These 2 world famous cars have been on display over at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona in celebration of the 1934 Ford's 75th Anniversary. They sat along side a couple other pretty well known 34's, the orange Super Bell Coupe and Billy Gibbon's 'ZZ Top Eliminator' Coupe.

After Father's Day, they rolled into Pleasanton for the Goodguys West Coast Nationals and then over to The Rodder's Journal in South San Francisco for a photo shoot with Steve Coonan and Geoff Miles.

After the photo shoot they headed over to Sacramento Vintage Ford where The California Kid and Jakes yellow Coupe will be on display for a few weeks and then on to Pete & Jake's Hot Rods, in Peculiar, Missouri ... The HOME of these two cars.

CLICK on the photo to see The Kid's arrival at
the store.

Pagano's Mountain Pearl F-100

On the cover!
HotRod & Restoration Magazine

  Lost for 40 years, Pagano's 1953 F-100 is Back!

We have followed the Mountain Pearl project since Tom and TJ brought it back to California from Colorado.
This magazine article was by Steve Stillwell, Editor.

'Pearl' first appeared in black and white in the July 1962 edition of Hot Rod Magazine. One month later, in the first full-color edition of Hot Rod, the photo appeared again, this time bringing to life the vivid hues of its paint job and occupying a full page. It was the first full-page color photo to appear in Hot Rod Magazine.

The Mountain Pearl was completely restored by Tom and TJ Pagano over at Pagano Rod & Custom in Rancho Cordova, California.

(In the Sacramento Vintage showroom earlier this year)

Click on the photo above
to read Tom's article in the The Pueblo Chieftain.
HotRod & Restoration is an industry magazine
that produces 11 issues per year that feature vehicle build-ups and in-depth tech articles on topics including chassis, suspension systems, engines, upholstery, metal fabrication, paint and body work.

49 States in 9 Days in a 1932 Ford? It can be done.

Dave Schaub of San Francisco, CA covers forty-nine States in nine days for the benefit of the Ronald McDonald House in Stanford, CA. Dave's passion for the American automobile, coupled with the naysayers that said it couldn't be done, was the motivation to set his sights on doing this for Children in need. When Roy Brizio of Brizio Street Rods called
Vic Edelbrock
and asked for Edelbrock's support in such a wonderful mission, Vic wholeheartedly agreed. Edelbrock built a small-block Chevrolet crate engine to power Dave's 1932 Ford Roadster built by Brizio Street Rod's.

As Dave blogged on day seven of his journey, "That's where the guys at Roy Brizio Street Rods as well as the Edelbrock crew came in. Thanks to them, the 49 in 9 Roadster is purring like a dream. Running an engine 16-18 hours straight daily takes a strain, but the engine built by the guys in the Edelbrock engine room is taking it and asking for more.".

NSRA BBQ- Thursday afternoon, October 1, 2009!


Simply put, Pick-n-Pull has combined the power of a Hollander Interchange, with the inventory of the Pick-n-Pull yards.

Hollander has capitalized on this and has developed an interchange program that allows for someone to search across different models of vehicles for the parts that will fit on their car also.
The Pick-n-Pull Tracker
system will now use the data developed in the interchange request and search a stores entire inventory to see if there are any matches! Each stores inventory is replenished every day with fresh cars, and that information is loaded each day into the Tracker application.
Customers can either go into the store of their choice to look-up cars, or they can call 1-800-442-5865 and one of their Customer Service Associates will be happy to help them find the parts they need!

Stop by one of the Pick-n-Pull locations with your tools, pay a small admission fee, find a vehicle with the parts you need and pull the parts yourself! All of the vehicles are set on customized supports to raise them off the ground so you can easily and safely pull your parts. The average Pick-n-Pull store has 14 acres and over 1,200 cars and trucks to choose from so chances are they have the parts you need! Pick-n-Pull is proud of the fact that they recycle more than 250,000 vehicles and service more than 4 million self-service customers each year.

Freshest Inventory, Great Prices!

Pick-n-Pull is an industry-leading chain of self-service auto parts stores providing recycled original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts at incredible prices. For over 20 years, they have been offering quality parts for all makes and models of foreign and domestic cars, vans and light trucks. Their selection of parts is tough to beat with new arrivals daily and stores are open 7 days a week!

Drivin' For The Kids
Ronald McDonald House

Somewhere in Michigan

September 16, 2009- The Cissel's warm welcome and comfy bed in Lake Havasu City before the start, a police escort in Albuquerque, New Mexico and another one through New York City; an oil change at someone's home; being handed money at a stop sign for Ronald McDonald House; people following, taking pictures, waving, and holding signs; telephone and email well wishes; ranches, farms, and small towns; no tickets; many, many miles, and many, many smiles, and now it's almost finished.

Tonight Dave is in Canada and tomorrow, God willing, he'll be in Hyder, Alaska. It'll be the end of months of planning and training, people met and never forgotten.

Tomorrow is the last day of the 49 in 9 Drivin' for the Kids charity run. Dave has done the driving and planning, but you've made the difference by your donations. Ronald McDonald House thanks you for your support, as does Dave.

"It's been a heck of a ride, and it's not over yet."
So check back tomorrow and ride along with
Dave to Hyder, Alaska

The Beginning ......

Fifty nine year old San Francisco Bay Area native Dave Schaub is going on the trip of a lifetime this fall. The Los Gatos, California resident and founder of Schaub's Meat, Fish and Poultry located in Palo Alto, California will set out Tuesday, September 8th to drive his 1932 Ford hot rod roadster through all 49 continental United States in just nine days. That's 9,800 miles in just 216 hours.

For every mile he travels, Dave is encouraging followers and supporters to donate a penny or more to the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford.

Click above to learn more about Dave, his Roadster, the trip, the BLOG, the progress
and his photos.

Kirk's 'May Cause Dangerous'

On the Rodder's Journal Cover

Kirk Jones award winning 'May Cause Dangerous' made the cover of Issue #45 of the Rodder's Journal
that is out now.

Photos courtesy The Rodder's Journal.

It's time to sell one of the most famous cars on the internet with one of the most amazing lace and panel jobs ever! Gambino's Kustoms started with a very solid stock '60 Starliner and tore it down to pretty much the body and frame to do this elaborate paint job. Retail cost for the paint to reproduce it would be in the $60k-$70 range alone, let alone all of the other new goodies! Literally hundreds of build shots if you want to see them.

NEW: Paint, complete Air Ride front and back with electronic monitoring system, Vintage Air, interior, front disc brakes, drop spindles, power booster master cylinder, door solenoids, chrome, stainless trim (except for drip rail trim), all glass (except for rear window), wheels, tires, valve covers, air cleaner, battery, dual exhaust, mufflers, electric fan carburetor, interior (NOS '58 Cadillac fabric inserts and white vinyl) and more.

The car is now on display at Sacramento Vintage Ford and Kirk has it priced at $65,000. (Model: Miss Rockwell DeVil)

This car is like Kirk's baby so he would really like it to go to someone who will take great care of it.
It's on eBay for $75,000 so save $10,000!!

Call Kirk with any questions 8am to 9pm Pacific time.  925.286.5733

If you prefer the smell of burnt rubber over that of burnt coffee, then this BUSTED KNUCKLE GARAGE mug is for you! A full sized cup of java quaffed from their specialty mug with a real rubber tire base and the catchy graphics and important truth of "Grind the Beans, Not the Gears". They even embossed the initials BKG into the tire on two sides.

Due to the custom nature of this mug, hand wash only and NO microwaves (unless you want the smell of burnt rubber).

Holds a whopping 16oz of sludge, just what's left in the oil pan of your last project car.

Guaranteed not to leak unless you break it (trust us on this one, Warren broke the sample mug the day it arrived).

Item Number 2852-30-0         $14.95

Order yours today and we will send them out as soon as they hit the floor. OK...not hit the floor...as soon as they arrive.

.... the Holidays are coming!

A car and dog show to benefit
Canine Companions

Most car shows don't allow pets....this car show is all about the pets......and the rides!

'Zoom Zoom Woof Woof', the first annual classic car show in El Dorado Hills, California to benefit Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit service dog organization.

The event was held September 5th on Main Street at the Town Center in Eldorado Hills, California. Cars from Vettes, to Rolls to Rods and Trucks lined both sided of the main street.

A kids band performed during the day and there were cars, trucks, dogs and puppies all over the place. You have heard of Poker Runs at the car shows? Well, they had a Puppy Poker run! This was their first event and they did a great job. Hope to be there next year!

Bonneville Speed Week

Every year, those with a serious need for speed head to the salt flats of Northwestern Utah for Bonneville Speed Week. Run on the bed of a prehistoric lake that's been dry for thousands of years, it's been home to more land speed records than anywhere else on the planet. The Bonneville Salt Flats gained in popularity during the '30s, and since, it's attracted participants from around the world wanting to show what their vehicles are made of. If it's got wheels and a motor, there's probably a class for it to compete in at Speed Week; everything from motorcycles to modified '30s hot rods to rocket-powered cars run during the event.

A few photos by Joe Streng over at Sacramento Vintage Ford during Speed Week. That's Joe in the photo above. We have been following his
progress in our earlier newsletters.

Joe also stopped by the Flying 'A' Garage while he was driving through the desert.
