Most of this week Ann and I stayed with Josh and his wife Quinn. Josh is a long time friend of mine that I haven’t seen in nearly four years (and had yet to meet Quinn and their new son Jacob). So, we spent a couple evenings having a few drinks and catching up (yes, probably more important than even eWillys!). I even got a chance to do some cooking: poached salmon in a mushroom stock with rice pilaf for dinner and some eggs benedict with hollandaise made, in part, from a vinegar/shallot reduction (best hollandaise I think I’ve ever made from scratch — sorry, no pics).

On Wednesday April 9th Ann and I made it back to Anaheim for day two of our Disney adventure, this time on the Disneyland side. It was a good day and we stayed until the very end to watch the water show and fireworks. I can’t imagine the coldest of hearts doesn’t feel their inner child peak out as disney music booms from the speakers while the water shows, dancing, and fireworks fire up the imagination. Here are a few pics:


Welcome to Disneyland!

After a thorough exploration of the park, I concluded there are no jeeps on the premises. However, during the Jungle ride, I am pretty sure I spotted an upside down Mighty Mite. Though I couldn’t positively prove this was the case, after Googling it, I discovered there are pics of a Mighty Mite from the Disney World Jungle Cruise on the G503 site. I guess I’ll just have to go back and investigate more . . .

    I think you are doing the builder of that little roadster an injustice calling it a “rat rod” it’s much more refined than that. Rat rods usually look like escapees from junk yards built from scrap.

    Buz, I would agree it’s more of a “hot rod”, but in Dave’s defense, don’t those seats look like repurposed lawn chairs?

    I think your comment is fair and it is a nice build. I thought it looked like a hot rod until I saw the seats. Perhaps Hot Rat Rod?

    That seems like a cool museum to me. Not sure of the lawn chair seats, but that is a rather exotic engine (Offenhauser?) and mingling with significant automotive stepping stones.

    And then the fiberglass pop-up trailer. Wheel wells similar to the jitneys you post, and the aerodynamic protrusion over the tongue. Way cool stuff there.

    I’m sure that whatever Karen had to say was excellent. Love the vintage campers….at least to look at. Think I prefer using the more modern versions that have indoor “plumbing” and other modern conveniences.
