Those vineyards make me want to come out for a glass of wine. I wouldn't mind driving one of mine a hundred miles a day.

100 miles a day , 36,500 miles a year . That's an ambitious endeavor . And I thought that I was doing pretty good at 6300 miles this year.

We have had our Deuce for just over 3 years and have driven 22,000 miles. With a trip to the All Deuce Run in NC last June and an August trip to the Hot Rod Hill Climb in Colorado we have driven over 8000 miles this year.
No where near 100 miles per day, but we are driving it.

Our reservations for the Deuce Days  2016 in Victoria BC are made and that is about 2200 miles each way.
It's fun driving a '32.

I think that the spirit of this thread is to just get out and drive your Deuce whenever it's possible . I've always related the amount of miles driven to how much fun that I had . BTW that rebuilt rear end sure looks nice !

Unfortunately with our restricted hot rod registration we can only use our hot rods to go to events. Full rego is $1100  a year, restricted rego $180 a year. I'm with jdsa as I also enjoy working on the cars and spending some time in the garage with them. 36,500 miles a year WOW and of course that would be an extra 100 in a leap year. Don't also forget there are a lot of idiots out on the road as can be seen by the recent fatal accident Downunder through no fault of their own.

Certainly don't drive mine as much as I would like to. But with the wife having medical problems we take her 38 Chev a lot more than the Deuce...........still manage 2>3,000 every year....biggest trip this year was a week in Nashville............ We have over 50 cruise nights within 50 miles of my house, so a lot of times the ride is not as far as it could be.......

It's always nice to go out of the city.
In about two years, I will be. My brother and I have a two acre property on the edge of the rural part of the north side of the Fraser Valley, about 15 miles NE of here. I am renovating the house and building a shop there. When we get out there, I plan to drive the T-bucket every sunny day.



You can just see the schnoz of one of the '65 Falcons poking out of the lower garage, the other '65 is also in there, and the T Tudor
To be honest, I don't even LIKE driving here in in Surrey, its not pleasant at all. The surroundings are ugly, people drive like total morons, the traffic is dense, and people are HYPER aggressive. You cant really get ANYWHERE without using densely packed 4 laners, you are CONSTANTLY being cut off from the front, and tailgated from behind, in heavy traffic. People will turn right out of side streets when you are right on top of them as a matter of course. I cant even drive the six blocks to my kids school without some jackass pulling out of one of those 6 side streets RIGHT in front of me, to the point where I have to plant the brakes, and there is always some asshole 6' off my bumper, and that in heavy traffic with no-where to go. F@CKING MORONS. God I want to get out of here SO BAD. I wouldnt even want to drive a car like a t-bucket here, and you have to drive through 8-10 miles of this shit to get to somewhere where driving starts to be a pleasant activity.
I mostly walk to school to pick my my kid now, because its so much nicer, its rare that I can walk that 6 blocks, SIX FREAKIN BLOCKS, without witnessing the aftermath of a fenderbender. On Tuesday, there was one in the school zone behind our house! IN A FREAKIN SCHOOL ZONE! How the HELL can you have an accident in a SCHOOL ZONE! And this was as school is getting out, at 3 in the afternoon! GOD I WANNA GET OUTTA HERE! ;D

It all boils down to the self absorbed mindset many follow today. It is all about them and no one else matters so they do as they please. With phones that many can't do without when driving to navigation systems and other crap auto makers load up cars with now there are far too many distractions. Combine that with the harried atmosphere that we see every day. I'll drive through an intersection just as the yellow comes on and most times two or more cars will follow, for sure some went through on the red.
Touch screen that requires some thought and multiple tasks to arrive at the answer? What the hell to we need that for? How about the navigation systems? What ever happened to looking at a map and figuring out a route? Some fools can't even find their own hat without a navigation system these days.

Really true. I think its an urban phenomenon. People feel completely anonymous, and a lot of people have no internal means of regulating their behavior. We are becoming a culture of sociopaths. Its really getting scary around here, my kid is 8, and we wont let her leave the yard by herself, even on the quiet side street we live on, its too dangerous. People use it as a "dodge" around the red light at the end of the next block over, and drive down our quiet residential side street at literally 45-50 mph. Its really nuts. Around here, a red light means "three more cars"... ::)

Around here it seems to know no boundaries, just last July a 25 year old driver disregarded a stop sign in a rural area near Beecher, IL. He instantly killed a 29 year old pregnant mom and her 19 mo. old son. Later the family's two other sons aged 6 and 4 succombed to their injuries. All were belted in and in car seats.
Speeding at 20 mph over the limit and blowing through a stop early in the morning sounds like he may have been distracted by his phone or then again maybe he just is a complete fool. Regardless, a young dad is left to mourn his wife, three sons and unborn child.
The driverless vehicle is said to help make things safer on highways, but what of the many neighborhoods, cities, towns and rural areas? People need to stay alert and pay attention, there are plenty of us out here that depend on it

Funny we were just talking about this. I just got back from my kids school, we were about the use the crosswalk in front, there was a relatively mild traffic back up maybe 1/2 a block long, some guy pulled out of the line across a solid double yellow, blew through the crosswalk in front of the school while we were standing right there, drove up the wrong side of the road, and hung a right, and sped through the remainder of the school zone. He wasn't a kid, probably late forties. It doesn't even surprise me anymore.

i love driving my roadster in oregons willamette valley with all its rural farm roads at 55mph and being able to see the scenery,not so much in az. where everyone go 75mph or better.  i read that phoniex and tucson are the worst in the nation for blowing red lites, and i believe it.you often stop for the lites and 4 or 5 cars a half block back blow on threw. as of october first you can not have a cell phone or hand held devise with in reach of the driver,first offence 1000.00 dollar fine second offence i think is 5000.00 dollar fine plus maybe jail.its about time.

That is a big money ticket, here in Illinois it is only a $75 first offense. Really doesn't matter, while I have the utmost respect for law enforcement officers it is rare to see them ticketing an offender for running a light or talking on the phone/texting. Honestly, I think I could write dozens of citations daily. The system is not broken, it's just not used as it should be.

I have given up driving in heavy commuter traffic. I moved to a small country town six years ago and its much more relaxed. When I used to drive down to get through the city I found it way to stressful in that type of traffic with all the congestion and impatient drivers in their everyday grocery getters. Freeways are way to busy and if you have a breakdown there is nowhere to pull over. Country driving is much more pleasant. Its amazing how most drivers speed in a lot of the USA States and it stuns me why State Govts. dont ticket drives for speeding. They would make millions.

the thing that really blows my mind is everyone speeds through school zones now. Even when I was a 20 yr old crazed street racer maniac, school zones were sacrosanct. Now I see people that have kids in the school speed through the school zone! We have a cell phone law here too, I don't pay much attention as I don't own a cell, but I think its a $500 ticket. No one seems to pay much attention though, hell the other day, I saw some guy driving using an I-pad on his steering wheel! :o
Man, I am looking forward to getting back out to east Maple Ridge. The difference is really noticeable out there as long as you stay on the east side, but once you get west of 223rd, its just like here.

14 TIMES??!! :o SOAB!! That's gotta be a record, even for around here! Once I get the house squared away and a shop up, you have to come out for a visit. We'll put a fire in the fire pit, and watch the ravens flying back and forth and cussing us out.
