    I prefer the Datsun 280ZX 2+2 coupe. Not exactly sure when they sold it. 1980 ? Collectable ? Not really. Beautiful ? Yes.

    Hi All:

    Marian and I ate at this cool diner in Ocenside, Calif. the other night called the "Pit Stop". The food was not much to behold but the ambiance was 5-stars over the top.

    This print of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe was mesmorizing.

    Marian heard about it so we thought we would try it. The tables tops were filled with 50s era pics and covered in glass, the walls were adorned with posters, prints, hub caps, and license plates from the 50s and 60s as well. To bad the food was just so so.

    Hi All:

    I have to give credit to dzhul irinia - if I am reading his watermark correctly? - who setup this shot. What a gorgeous portrait in more ways than one.

    Hi All:

    Although Halloween is quickly disappearing in the rear view, the best auto horror movie ever made was just playing on the Sony Movie Channel.

    This John Carpenter classic was titled "#Christine".

    The story revolves around a possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury of which 20 cars - some close knockoffs, were used in the destruction and reconstruction sequences. Apparently there are still two of these beauties from the film still left.

    Who would not want to own one of these classics! ;)

    Hi All:

    We have all been in this dilemma before. Now you know the right answer is to floor it and hope for the best. ;)

    2-3-1 :) Do I pass?

    Edit: in some places, they don't trust the drivers to figure it out so they throw in a rotary... many such rotaries in Massachusetts where we don't know how to drive.

    Edit2: that picture is quite impressive... I wonder how that car ended on top? Was it already up on two wheels when the other vehicle went under?

    Hi All:

    #Chevrolet #Volt fans and owners are going to love this.

    My son Scott sent me this message tonight:

    "My workplace address is Redwood City, but its starting to look like Volt City."

    The Volt is indeed a popular seller in California.
