July 4, 2007 — We spent the fourth in Williams. We were in the parade, took the train trip to the Grand Canyon.

Get on board because this should be fun! You can check out the daily schedule of events here.
May 14, 2007 — Street Surfing becomes a sponsor of the Great All American Road Show. Download the press release. The '32 Hi-Boy is running again. Well, sort of. Got it started today and runs great. Need to do a little wiring fix but it sounds good and will be a lot of fun on the road.
May 10, 2007 — The '32 Hi-Boy is in Arizona. The damage was more than we expected. No only are we taking the tonsils, we are taking the lungs, heart, kidneys, etc. Actually, we are putting in a brand new 350 V-8 with all new bright work so it will be clean and neat and dependable. We are also waiting for the custom KC logo that will attach to the front of the grill. Gonna be cool lookin' atcha.
May 8, 2007 — Woody Young, president of Kit-Cat® Klock, just received delivery of his personal ride, a 1933 Ford pickup street rod. This is one nice ride. 5.0 Ford V-8 with a stick. Red, of couse. Really a high end driver. This will be the official Kit-Cat® delivery truck. This truck will be on the tour with us.
April 20, 2007 — The roadster is in Arizona having its tonsils taken out. Actually, we are removing the turbo charger and going back to the basic carburetor. If a 750 Holley double pumper is "basic". We decided that it was important to be reliable more than just fast. If you want a good deal on a turbo setup for a 283/350 chevy engine, let us know. We even have pictures to show you how to put it all together. Comes with the turbo and all the plumbing. $600. The box it comes in is free.
March 15, 2007 — We just finished a "dry run" of old Route 66! Wow! This is going to be fun. We talked to many community leaders and the response has been tremendous. Plan to come along with us on the adventure across America. Start your diet now because once we begin, you will be tempted with some of the best cooking in the world. Chili, watermelon, corn on the cob, you name it. You will be able to join us for a day, a week, a month or do the whole trip. Come on along!
