Yesterday we checked out the Dwarf Car Museum --> Dwarf Car Museum | Maricopa, AZ
That was awesome and amazing.

I hope to take plenty of time getting back to Oregon. The plan is to drive no more than a couple hundred miles in a day and then when we stop spend a couple days exploring around.

Grand Canyon tomorrow. Then who knows. Maybe up 395 or maybe up through the middle of Nevada.

I saw his 46 Ford convertible at a car show a few years ago, his work is amazing. I hope I can do what you are doing someday.

There was another guy there who actually built the blue car in the third photo. Not Ernie Adams but obviously very inspired by Ernie's work. That car was a couple of notches finer than the Ernie cars. I chatted with the old guy for quite a while. He has about 3000 hours in creating that car. Much of that time is spent making jigs, fixtures and templates. I was admiring the beautiful chrome bumpers. They were created out of 1/8" steel flat stock with a torch, some fixtures and a big hammer. Then ground perfectly smooth, polished and chromed.

Crazy stuff!
Nice that you could make the time for a "cruising" vacation.
Great pix too!
If you come up 395 through Nevada, I'm currently on assignment in Carson City, NV.
There's a few decent brew pubs here. Stop in for a pint or several - on me...

I'd like to take you up on that beer. It could happen...
We nixed taking 395 or driving through Vegas to avoid the heat. We're going with plan "C". North into Utah and west through St George and probably over to Tonopah.

Chillin' just south of the grand canyon for the next few days.

In 1979 I camped in the same area on my way home from having my new 620 Datsun turbocharged by AK Miller.

Ak Miller - wow... A blast from the past!
Haven't heard his name in a while.
He was a pretty cool guy and took me for a ride in his fox body mustang that he converted to propane and turboed. It was very quick for the time.

Miller was so far ahead of the times - today?

That Datsun pickup surprised quite a few people especially a red 78 Corvette driver that thought he could keep me from passing him. 🤣
