You’ve gotta wonder what the story is behind this spaced out Jag. Do ya think the brolly is effective at shielding the Lucas electrics?
Automotive life in California is just so different from life here in Ontario, especially during the winter months. Thanks to the liberal use of salt on our roads, most of the cool toys go away for the winter. Much of the fun and funky stuff just doesn’t exist here at all. Thankfully, Aaron Von Minden had some free time on his hands over the President’s Day weekend and grabbed a few visuals for us northerners.
First up is The Mothership. The only place we’d see a wicked coach like this here in Toronto is on one of the many movie sets around town. Out in Venice Beach though, this stuff is out in the real world.
Long live bus conversions!
Members of the extended team here in The Garage are covering a lot of miles over the next few days, but none with quite so much kool factor as Aaron Von Minden. Regular readers will recall that our man on the west coast has recently made a move from LA up to the San Fran area. When a hot rodder makes a move of that size, years worth of acquired goodies need to be loaded in the shop truck along with the tooth brush and jammies. The Von Fonda isn’t just any plain old guy though and neither is his shop truck. How about a 1930 Ford pick up truck with bronze heads, Alexander side by side intake, big cam, 18 inch wheels and straight pipes!
Aaron loaded up the truck with his 34 Coupe trailing behind in Venice beach and set off for the north country. Of course a stop for fish and chips in Malibu was in order, not to mention a few photo stops.
This is beginning to sound like a song or something!
Putting the day job’s wares to work, Aaron grabbed some awesome shots from the road on his new iphone. It really is amazing what you can do with a phone, as these photos (after the break) will attest. In one shot, you’ll notice things were getting more than a little warm in the mountains. You can bet that the A might visit Lucky in the Team CBR garage for a once over one day soon after that little coolant mishap.
