The Roamin Angels Car Show has been cancelled for 2021. Be safe and cruise safely.

Under the Hood

One of the great things about a Roamin Angels’ road trip or cruise is that there always seems to be someone who can figure out what’s wrong when something mechanical goes wrong on these old beauties. Long live road trips!

Snapshots: Past Toy Drives

For over two decades, the Roamin Angels have worked in conjunction with the Salvation Army to give the local children and their families a Merry Christmas. Though we can’t have a regular toy drive, inventive minds prevailed to make sure that this year is just as special. The toy drive for 2020 was done in conjunction with the Marines Toys For Tots program.

Snapshots: The Grand Canyon Trip

This was such a fun trip to the Grand Canyon. Memories of people now gone, but never forgotten. That is what is important is to appreciate all the days we are together, but, if we can not be physically together at the least keep in touch. Thanks for the memories. It was one of the Roamin Angels road trips back a few years ago. It’s nice to remember! – Paula B.

It is called Santa Fe Red and is about the color of tomato juice. I enjoy restoring these old dashboards, I have several more to do. But, I am running…

Amazing Transmission Shop In Colfax

My wife, Kris, and I bought a 1962 Thunderbird in Manteca.  I had acquired a 2002 Corvette prior to that, so Kris was interested in getting a classic car.  Due to the owner’s health issues, the Thunderbird had not been driven for years.  It had been started occasionally.  We got the Thunderbird for an outstanding price.  Even if the drive train needed to be replaced, we would still be way ahead of the value of the car.  The engine proved to be sound, however the transmission seemed to be leaking…
