Lifelong Tucson enthusiast

Hi. I have heard good things about this group, so I thought I would check it out.

I have been a rod,custom & drag race junkie since I was 10. That is a very long time ago. Got involved before I could drive. Grew up in the Midwest, then relocted to Arizona in '75.

Not much I haven't done on cars, but took a special interest in custom body and paint, and today I get involved in every kind of project with friends. I will try to help with practical answers when possible.

Now.... Show me some great stuff!!!

Yep, watched the 4th of July fireworks out my Motel 6 door being shot from "A mountain" eating a "hot dog de Sonora" I bought from a fella making them in his front yard. I have FOND memories of Tucson.

Martinsr, Me too! I moved here in '75, and never have been able to think of any reason to leave. The summers are warm, but that beats 30 below plus wind chill! :-)

I don't know about "warm" in the summer. I was in Phoenix earlier in the day at a park behind the state capital building. It was SO HOT that the friggins sole fell off my shoe! NO KIDDING! I had to go buy a new pair of shoes that afternoon. It was HHHHHOOOOOOTTTTT.

I was in Phoenix a few years back for the Copperstate model car event. We were driving through town, and saw an electronic sign on a bank that said 124. I told my wife their clock was off. That night we saw on the news that it was the temp!!!

Tucson is generally a few degrees cooler. ....and of course it is a "dry heat", which doesn't feel nearly as bad as 90 degrees and 90% in the Midwest. :-)

I took a job in mining when I got here, and a year later I was on the railroad crew, working most days as a brakeman. You get used to it quicker that way. ...if you survive! :-)

Today I do what the locals always have done... stay inside if it's hot, and do things in the evening.

Hey TucsonJ!

welcome to the site! I checked out your pics! Nice paint jobs! I've got relatives in Sun City, AZ. and can't wait to do a little business in Phoenix so I have an excuse to escape the cold and blowing snow that seems to be plaguing the area......as a result of the Global warming of course! LOL! I've been messing with cars a long time as a hobby, so that always leaves me with a lot to be learned. The guys on this site have been extremely helpful and very patient, even with the no-brainer questions that pop up occassionally! Good bunch of guys with a lot to offer!
