RadWood is a car show and festival of everything that was awesome, tubular and gnarly from the 80s and early 1990s. I did not had a car or bike to bring this year, but I did have a pair of black and day-glo orange raver pants, and a Lollapalooza 1991 T-shirt to wear, plus my […]
In conjunction with the High Art of Riding Low exhibit downstairs at the Petersen, their monthly breakfast meet was dedicated to lowriders as well. Hundreds of people and about 100 cars showed up to enjoy some coffee and bagels on the upper deck of the museum parking garage. Perhaps the oddest duck there was my […]
About once every six months, Pelican Parts, a well known place to get mostly German car parts, holds a cars and coffee meet at a mall in Palos Verdes, California. I got to this late and did not get pictures of a lot of the awesome stuff that was there, but here is what I […]

Van Nuys Blvd used to be the place to cruise in the San Fernando Valley north of L.A. For a long time it went away, but now its back ever 3rd Wednesday night all summer long. Some of these are from my cell phone (LG G5), some from an old and nearly dead Pentax digital point […]
There are way too many pictures, but I am working through them. I figured I would put this up as a gallery and add to it as I go. This page is part 2 (in progress) part 1 can be seen here.
The viking funeral, one last hurrah nature of running these rare, valuable, pre-war Indians and Harley-Davidsons is subversive. It’s a lot like lighting your cigar with a $100, only more expensive and more fun to do.
Rob raced the Monster Moto 80cc mini bike, and despite our best tuning efforts could not make it to the top of the hill without running the last few feet. Still a great time out there.
