Spring Fling in Van Nuys (Los Angeles) is coming up April 23-24. I will be bringing my pink '58 Desoto to the show. I usually troll the swaps in the morning and hang out by the cars afterward. I hope to see some of your mugs there.

My wife and I will come by on Saturday and say hi Nathan! We are in the middle of a move (just bought a house) so neither the '56 Dodge or Plymouth is coming with us this year. We should make the Fall Fling though.

Please post some pictures when you get back. I would like to see that one sometime too. Maybe you will run into Jay Leno!

I will try to remember to take some good pics. Jay does often show up to the spring show with a nice ride to show off.

Congrats on the new digs David. See ya there. I am REALLY wanting to check out a certain '58 New Yorker convertible there.... are you going Gary?

Thanks Nathan. Lancer Mike, I think my wife has some pics of Jay next to Brian Cotton's '55 La Femme and our '56 Dodge I will try to get from her tonight. Here's a little video from a couple of years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR8jY4kyiq8

Nathan, is that event for Hi-perf Mopars or are there forwardlookers as well? I'll be in town next week end.

Adventurer 60, its for all things Mopar, including a swap meet area. Check out the Forwardlookers in the video I posted. Here is a link to the show: http://www.cpwclub.com/springfling.php

The focus of the show is definitely on the muscle car vehicles, including the swap meet but still a good selection of FL cars and parts. I'll be there on Saturday but without my car.

That would be really neat if we could drum up enough support to have an all forward look event, but I fear that if we tried, there would likely be only a handful of people show up for it.

But you should definitely check out this show. It is the best Mopar show/swap meet that the West coast has to offer.

There used to be WPC shows, what happened to those? I've mostly had muscle car era cars so when I go to the Flings I have to drag my friends over to the "old car" area.

Hi, I'm the president of the club that puts on the Spring and Fall Flings.

There may seem a focus on Musclecar era cars, but we have at least 8 separate classes for pre 1962 Mopars.

I know Richard Carpenter has a Spring Fling Best of Show trophy in the trophy room at his collection. I know we gave a B.O.S. to a copper 57 single headlight 300 letter car too.

I would love to support anyone here would like to coordinate a Forward Look gathering at our show.


... You bring the cars, we'll buy the trophies.

We've had to cut the amount of some trophies cause or lower turnout. Like 300 and 300 letter cars. Would like to see 6-7 on Sunday to support 3 trophies.


I've just recently got emails from two gentleman trying to sell older cars too. A '39 Dodge D-11 Coupe and a 49 Chrysler

And keep your eyes out this Sunday for a 1949 Power Wagon Battalion Chief Truck.

Thanks for putting on a great show Steve. I know it is a lot of work and I really appreciate all you and the crew do for it. Definitely my favorite place to be in the spring and fall.

Thank you all for 30 years of support.

We really appreciate it!

In that appreciation, we are giving away 30th Anniversary Hats for the first 400 show field cars.

I am planning to do the cruise to Malibu on Friday morning. I will probably take the '56 Savoy as it has disc brakes and stops quite a bit better than the '58 DeSoto. Anyone want to join me?

Back from the cruise this morning. My wife and I had a lot of fun. Nice time together without the kids. I had the only forwardlook there. I also had the oldest mopar, although there was a '50 Ford that tagged along too. First stop was at the Rock Store, which is an old store made of stones cemented together. You can kindof see the rock portion of it on the other side of the wood structure. Kenny Wayne Shepherd & his 2 kids joined us with his sweet orange '69 Charger. Here are some pics for you.

Next stop was at an outlook view point at the top of the canyon. My wife was having a lot of fun with it and enjoyed the whole experience. Overall a fun time with great cars and people. Now the Picture Car Warehouse event is going on, but we will skip it to rest from the slow traffic getting home.

Must have been loads of fun. Thanks for sharing - being that my dad was a Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge dealer, I had many of those types of muscle cars shown in the photos including a 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

It was quite fun and I plan to do it again if I can get the time off work again. Here are some forwardlook highlights from the show on Saturday:

There were a ton of muscle cars of course, quite a few newer Challengers, and a huge number of winged Superbirds & Daytonas. But I really liked these earlier cars. The red '49 Dodge was for sale and had a nice custom look to it. The '53 Dodge was just a very well done car with the perfect mix of new and old, although I would have probably chosen different wheels.

That white 300G was for sale for $45,000. They said they just pulled it out of a garage in Apple Valley. It looked pretty solid and original although there were a few modifications. My camera malfunctioned so I didn't get a picture of the sign in the windshield.

Powerflite . . . great pictures and it was good to chat for a few minutes on Saturday. And NicksGarage, and anyone else that my be interested, the one picture I did take was of the phone number on the 300F. So if you are looking to contact the 300F seller, send me a message and I will pass the number on. I don't want to post it here since I do not know the seller personally.

There was a guy in the swap meet selling a bunch of 1960 Dodge parts. Did anyone get his name and number?

I heard that there was someone selling '60 Dodge stuff, but I never saw them. I did manage to get a bunch of '57 New Yorker and Desoto parts though, that made me happy.

He had a couple grilles and headlight trim plus a lot of small stuff. One guy had '55-61 parts and when I told him I needed parts for a '60 Chrysler he said "The Swedes have already been here"!
