Got back last night from the annual West Coast Crosley Club meet in Buellton, California. I'm sunburned, sleep-deprived and - as always - STOKED. I look forward to this meet all year. It's a chance to catch up with friends I haven't seen since the last meet, and of course I love looking at all the Crosley junk that shows up, from restored cars to rare ephemera to parts for sale. I forgot to book a room at Pea Soup Andersons (the official hotel) so when I arrived on Friday night I ended up at the slightly skanky Country Lane Motel right next door.
the story of that trip in another post, but the short version is that I got it home, went through my parts stash and made it as complete as I could before it went to Buellton. I found most of the rest of the missing parts in Buellton and added them to the load in the back of the truck. It was for sale, but nobody bit.
'garage find' Crosley I wrote about last year have it nearly finished. The Browns have done an incredible frame-off mild custom, and it's probably only a couple of months away from being done. The pictures they brought showed the progress and it was amazing to see the transformation - I can't wait to see it at the next meet. They had a fun time at the meet and heartily agreed that Crosley folks are super.
