A Friday Ride to Patrick's

On Friday, February 17th, the "Friday Craig's Ride" went to visit Patrick's in Case Grande. Patrick & Danese Dykes, SEAT members, own a parts supply house and restoration center for old Chevy pickup trucks in Casa Grande. They also sell parts of old Ford V8s. They have been in business for 30 years. Our Friday ride was a tour of there facility.

We rode up AZ77 to AZ79 and over Park Link Road to the frontage road of I10 then up AZ84 to Casa Grande. We used to do breakfast at the Dairy Queen at Picacho Peak but it has gone from so-so to terrible. Instead we had breakfast at the Cookie Jar Restaurant in downtown Casa Grande. It is excellent.

Patrick's is only a couple of miles from downtown. Danese gave us the full tour. They have a parts area, a shop and a huge lot with old parts trucks. This is the place to go if you have a Chevy truck of Ford V8 you are restoring.

We came home through Coolidge and back on AZ79. A good Friday ride.
