Sherm’s Plating Day Two
Oct 27, 2012

With more folks joining in on Friday our group has grown to about 75 vehicles. After our morning get together it was off to the Wally Parks NHRA Museum in Pomona. The hour drive went smoothly with little traffic by LA standards. The museum holds so many treasures from our hot rodding past that we were busy for two hours seeing the cars and memorabilia on display. There was a fantastic special exhibit tracing the history and contributions of hot rodding pioneer Dean Moon. Rose Dickinson from the museum staff had arranged for a food vendor to be set up in the parking lot and we had a picnic lunch. By 2pm it was time to get back to Burbank.
After some time to relax in the afternoon we made our way to Troy Ladd’s Hollywood Hot Rods shop just three blocks away. Troy and crew had built our beautiful 1940 Ford coupe and it was on display. It is headed to the SEMA Show and will be in the Ford booth all week. It is a huge honor to be asked by Ford to be part of their display at SEMA.
Street Rodder Publisher Tim Foss and his wide Lynette stopped by to say hello to everyone. We had some snacks and beverages and checked out the projects in the works at Hollywood Hot Rods. After the get together some folks headed to Bob’s Big Boy and others enjoyed a meal in Burbank. It was another great day on the Tour.
