Hot Rod

We have spent our first week in our South bound travels in Toutle, Washington visiting Terri's brother and SIL.  We seem to stop by for a visit as we pass by Shan and Beth's place twice a year.  It is such a comfortable place to be that we've had our longest visit since being retired.

Shan has been building his dream hotrod for years.  The 1940 Chevy is nearing completion.  Here are a few photos that I shot the other day.

The hood is off for some engine work.

Chrome, chrome and more chrome.
Nothing stock on this dash.
The interior is just about done.  It has taken 12 cow hides to complete the seats, headliner and door panels. The trunk will be done next in matching leather.

Back seat. 
The front seats are completed but sitting outside the car as interior work is done.
Pin striping on the trunk.
Matching valve covers.

Love that shine.
We have enjoyed our time with Shan and Beth but we will hit the road on Monday morning.  It will be Highway 14 along the Washington side of the Columbia River and then south on Highway 395 through Eastern Oregon and Northern California.

Life is good.
