November 27, 2012












We got a lot of hits on a photo of a (right hand drive) deuce roaster with flames paint job which we saw at SummerNats2009, so when we saw this deuce coupe with a flames paint job at the San Francisco Car Show on Thanksgiving Day of 2012, we just had to take a picture.

Car-spotting in San Francisco

December 17, 2011










Deuce was spotted in San Francisco on walk taken Friday December 15, 2011.
