Tim,

Becky had so much fun this past BBQ, she didn't even hesitate with her enthusiastic YES!  Let's go!

I hope to have my '54 Dodge back running by then and will bring it over.

Lookin forward to seeing our new friends and talking MoPar Dodge, even if your guys don't believe my 241 Poly V8 exists.

Ken & Becky

Had a great time with you guys "KenandBecky".....lol.

As always, its a bunch of fun and this time around I'm getting a drone! 

See if I can catch all the weeds I missed!

 

@Adams: Well geez, that explains the funny looking kid on a wagon who stopped by my place and said "yo, I'm from Mars, Plymouthy sent me...smile."

Most, if not all parties have checked in and this WILL be the date.

I plan on advertising early and often to local truck clubs and to individual PH owners in the area. 

I would appreciate any + all help in bringing up the event in forum posts as well as being on the look out for interested PH owners not on the forum!

 

On a side note. I think the 20th BBQ will be my last.....maybe. 2022 will be #15, 2027 will be #20. I'll be 63 years old. Kinda a good run I think.

Tim I will be there with or without my truck, hope to get it running in time, I need a good running motor if anyone has one, applied for personal plates and there on the way, so if you see a green 1950 Dodge 3/4 ton with Waldo on the plates that's me. And just a thought, has anyone installed a 4 wheel drive set up on a 50 Dodge, I have the 4 speed with the block off plate for a take off, just need everything else.

It has been a good run and we all thank you!

Now with that settled, maybe you can just leave the gate open, the BBQ truck available and a place we can pitch a tent or two.  The rest of us can bring the fixings, trucks to tell lies over and good friends to enjoy.

 

If you are needin the hay cut around the summer house and barn just let us know where you keep the scythe.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in April....If I can find a starter for my truck.

UPDATE:

Becky & I have reservations at the Holiday Inn in Lodi.  We will arrive on April 1st and be departing for home on April 4th.

Good news....our  '54, 241ci V8 is running but needs a lot of sprucing up to be show worthy.  In that regard we are trying to find a way to trailer it over for the BBQ.  U-Haul says our Ford Ranger 4x4 is too small to tow it with their trailer.  (Ranger has a 6000 lb tow capacity)  U-haul's computer does not have a 1954 Dodge C-1-C in their files to plug into their towing capacity program.  So they are guessing on the weight of our Dodge.  I thought I had the weight someplace but can't find it.

 

Does anyone know where I can research and find the standard unladen weight of a 1954 Dodge Truck?

 

Bad news....if we can't find a way to tow the truck to the BBQ it will have to wait until next year.  I made the mistake of just "not registering" the truck when it went down and not runnable, in 1994.  Nevada DMV is not easy to work with when you just stop giving them their registration money.  Now they are talking about steep fines and/or requiring back registrations.

We are still coming one way or the other.  Prefer towing the '54 but will have to find a tow trailer.
