Default The Fidgiter goes to L.A.! Car show pics!!

Just got back from an awesome weekend. Flew out to L.A. to visit Mel, and went to the THEM! L.A. show, Pamona swap, and the Petersen museum. Starting off with THEM!.......I'll break em up 5 at a time, may help the dial up folks. Might take me a bit to get em all up, so if you'd hold the replies for a while, I'd appreciate it!

By far the second best part of the weekend.....stuffed into Savage's BAD ASS coupe cruising downtown L.A. on Saturday night. If there's a way to see the city, an open top, blown, baremetal, A coupe is the way to get it done. I'll remember that forever, thanks a LOT man.

The next morning it was off to the Pamona swap. I'll forever be jealous of the fact that Cali. has these every 6 (?) weeks. Sunday at this one was better than any Friday or Saturday at any Texas swap I've been to. A couple cars caught my eye.

the rest....






After the swap, we headed to the Petersen Auto Museum. I'm sure you've all seen pictures of this stuff before, but I'll show em anyway. I was in the presense of hot rod greatness. All this history in one place. It was incredible...

All those pics and not one of the beautiful Mel posing next to or on something? I'm dissapointed. The rest of the pics are nice though, even if they are Mel-less.

I went to the Peterson a few years back. Its very cool. I like how they set up scenes like that garage one.

I will definately go back next time I'm out there.
