Hard Rock Car Show 2014

1930 Ford

It is always nice to attend a car show in another place where all the cars are new to me. The Hard Rock Show in Coquitlam, British Columbia was no exception. Lots of interesting vehicles to admire.

Lethbridge Street Wheelers Cruise 2014

Sadly I only made it to the cruise portion of the 2014 edition of Street Wheeler’s weekend. Even more sad is I had to go back to watching rather than driving. Still it is a great event even as a spectator.

So I’m converting my car to the smaller European style bumpers. At the rear at least you can do this for very close to free! I just needed to purchase some carriage bolts to cover the holes. At the front a swap to the smaller over rides will complete the conversion.
