Fred Welsh's sedan was a car I saw at a lot of the Motorsports shows in Vancouver, and I can still remember drooling over it every time I saw it. I was thinking about it when I first started reading this thread. Thanks for the pics!

Brian, here is Gordie Copp's yellow roadster in about 1971 when Norm Abrahams still owned it before Gordie got it off him. Full fendered and channelled. I have some other pics of it when Geordie rebuilt it as a channelled yellow fenderless car. Then Gordie got run off the road and totalled it and rebuilt it as a full fendered stock looking resto rod painted light and dark blue. My other pics of the car need to be scanned. I have thousands of pics to scan someday. Pat.

Keith, here is another pic of Fred Welsh's "Treasure" 40 Ford four door sedan. Chromed frame, blown small block, Lincoln quad headlites and Caddy tailites. Fred was a painter so the car was forever changing colors. This first pic is in the fifties in New Westminster, I think you mentioned you were there. Pat.



This not so good pic I think was from the 40th anniversary Vancouver car show.



Fred's car today with the new owner, same guy that bought it off Fred years ago.









Just found this nice one of Treasure in it's prime. Winningest show car in the Pacific Northwest. This is a model someone built of the car.

Great shots, Pat

Yup, that was a car show held in the parking ramp in New Westminster in
1960. My '51 Meteor was well down the aisle away from all the "real" hot rods.

Feb '59 Custom Cars....an article on how to put '58 Chevy headlights into a '55 Chevy. The car was Milt Goodman's and was an awesome piece in the Vancouver area. I have no idea where it ever went and I last saw it in 1963 or so. Milt went on to race Formula Fords at Westwood Race track and throughout the Pacific Northwest. I will post a feature on the car when I find it !!!

Keith, I transferred over a 1000 pics to photobucket tonite, so should have some of the ones you need. I will watch your posts. Here is Milt's chev top rite in an old show program from the 50's.

April 1959 Car Craft. Cliff Rich's T Coupe. Cliff is in his late 70's and still building Hot Rods in the Chilliwack, BC area.
I wonder where the car went. Rollie C was supposed to know............

WOW! No one would ever recognise Gordie's roadster now. More of a resto-rod, and the quality has really improved a lot.
