Seconds Saturdays at Hanzel's in Oakland is Back for 2012

PostFri Feb 24, 2012 7:57 am

Greetings Hooniverse Gold Members! This exclusive forum gives you exclusive access to such exclusive events as Seconds Saturdays at Hanzel Auto Body Works in Oakland,CA. My father, Henry, and I are pleased to announce that the first Seconds Saturdays of 2012 will be March 10th at the shop. This years' events will be a more 'intimate' affair as we no longer have use of the parking lot across the street due to a new ordinance by the City of Oakland brain-trust and a light-duty chain across the driveway.  Apparently its to keep the riff raff out at night and weekends.  So instead you'll need to OCCUPY the shop with the rest of the Citroens and usual suspects.  Parking meters out front will be enforced too by Cushman trikes (they have nothing better to do on a Saturday morning) so be sure to bring your quarters just in case.  Parking inside is first come, first served along with the coffee, donuts, scones and whatever else we slap together at the last minute.  The door is usually up by 8am so please drive in slowly and try not to run over the other attendees and feral children.  Thanks for coming last year and we hope to see more cool stuff and car folks this year.  

Chris Hanzel
456 23rd Street
Oakland, CA 94612

PS. Motorcycles, scooters, pedal cars, steam trains, vintage boats and trailers are all welcome. We've had a few last year and it would be a hoot to see some more.

I will be there. I may bring my Jeep, or I may end up walking (it's a couple miles but not too bad from my place). (The Jeep is my baby, but it's nothing to write home about. It's definitely not a show car, as it has some dings and dents. It's also roughly stock, very nice stock, but stock.)

Today was the first Friday of the month so that must mean next Saturday everyone and their cool cars will be descending upon Oakland to eat my food, drink my coffee and show off their car/truck/hooptie/"racecar"/ hooptie "racercar"/etc. See you then!

I had a bit of an accident on Sunday while mountain biking... Been off work all week, and will be for quite a while. So I likely won't be making it... :(

How did this go? Any pics? Sorry I had to miss out, but I seriously messed myself up pretty good last weekend. Just got the stitches (about 30-40) out yesterday, which was easily in the top 5 most painful experiences of my life...

30-40 stitches, good lord man! Heal up.

I had a great time, there were bacon scones and now I have some faces to match up to you nutjobs.

Also, Citroen longroofs are much more majestic in person. Pictures never did them justice.

Here are my photos from the event:
http://pangea.stanford.edu/~schmitt/ima ... _saturday/

It's just a directory of JPEG files. All I did was dump the files from the camera and make thumbnails (the *_small.jpg files). I did tweak a few of the pictures to correct wonky exposure times.

Thanks to Hanzel's for hosting a great event!

I'll be posting pictures and a write-up on the main Hooniverse page this coming week.

I didn't know there were bacon scones!

The cars were eclectic and fun. It was great to meet many of the regular commenters there.
