So-Cal Speed Shop’s Historical Belly Tanker Stripped Naked!



When we go on tour it is usually to a museum or an event. This time it was quite different but very exciting. We went to the So-Cal Speed Shop headquarters and took a tour of the shop. It is wonderful to see old cars and see history in a museum but to see it in the shop were history is being created is very exciting. Not only did we get to see new cars under construction we got to see one of the hobby’s most recognizable stars in the all natural!

Belly Tanker So-Cal

I have to thank the guys at So-Cal for being so generous as to open their work place up for tours. If you are like me, going to a body shop or speed shop is almost like going to the movies; its entertainment for me. Luckily, the guys at So-Cal realize they are special; they have made history and they are making history. Having the opportunity to see the inside of their business was a real thrill.

The good new, I am no one special you can also enjoy this privilege. Go to their headquarters in Pomona, CA; twice a day and take a tour and its free!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
