Nothing Fancy Ford
Since it’s redesign and new F-1 designation in 1948, Ford changed little in three years. In fact, it would take an expert to tell them apart. All pickups in that day were stepsides.

John K. has no expectations that his ‘50 Ford F-1 shortbed pickup will ever win any trophies. But then, he doesn’t take it to car shows either. He did not buy it to show. He bought it because he needed a truck for household hauling and did not want to buy a new one.  About years ago, he told a fellow Roamin Angel he was looking for one and the Angel told him of one that was sitting in a garage in Penn Valley. After an amateur restoration, it…

Drive and Survive™

Drive and Survive™ Postponed Indefinitely. Drive and Survive™ Friends…I got home last night only to discover we had lost another awesome teen in a driving accident. Alyssa Soheda, a 2019 Bear River Grad, was killed on Hwy 49 after crossing into traffic and suffering a head on collision. It causes me great personal pain then that I must announce the indefinite postponement of the 2020 “Drive and Survive” event. I know I speak for the many Roamin Angels, Community Businesses and Volunteers that stage “Drive and Survive” every year. The…

Bright Tail lights

Brighter Tail Lights When I was fixing up Colleen’s ‘56 Chevy, one of the things I wanted to do was make the stop/tail lights brighter. First, I washed the lens and cut out reflective rings for the housing. I used a 3m diamond grade sign reflective sheet scrap which really helped. (This is available at Highway Sign Shops). Second, I ordered #1157 “Brite Light” from one of the speed shops. These ‘babies’ are bright! (50/8 watt). Unfortunately, when all the lights were on and you hit the brakes, the thermo-breaker…

Oildale – The Movie

Saturday Night at the Movies – January 18: “OILDALE” From Mike H.: We had somewhere between 350 and 400 people. Ray Yedding and team pushed out about 300 bags of popcorn. Once again, we are so appreciative of the Roamin Angels members who joined us. I’ve been surprised once again in the last two weeks by members who also turn out to be Vets. You stand back and look at it and it’s logical. Hard workers, dedicated, honest, American. From Diane B.: What a wonderful movie! And to think that it…
