    I guess this is why they call it the Golden State, the color didn't show up too well here but it is a real golden color.

    Wow, great trip report, thanks.
    Mind me asking, what went wrong with the trans? Or, did it just have a million miles on it? I want to install one in my '40, so I am keen to know what to look for in those 200's.
     
  10. I love reading about you're adventures Bob! Wish you and the ol' lady some more safe travels!
     
  11. Thanks for the Pictures,I can't wait to see more of your country!!

    About 2 weeks ago I received a friend request on Facebook that completely blew me away. It was from a guy that I was in Marine Corps Boot Camp at San Diego. I have kinda looked for him over the years but always around L A as his folks lived in La Puente. Never got any results. But here comes this friend request. So anyway he now lives in Roseville Ca. We changed our schedule to spend the night in Roseville and went to dinner with he and his wife, it was a great meeting and now we will keep in touch. I hadn't seen him in 57 years.

    So on the way back from dinner my power steering took a shit. I put a post up on my breakdown on the board and got on the phone and computer. I found this shop'

    The guilty party, can't understand how it could go bad with only 88k on it.

    We are spending the night in Porterville CA, a neat little and one or our favorite steakhouse's THE OAKPIT.

    As of hitting L A last night it is 190,974. Should hit 200k this year with no problem. That will be 200k in 10 summers. That should be some kind of a record.

    Driving west on Hwy 46 towards Paso Robles we came across this, lots of sports cars entering the facility. We passed on that and kept on going.

    Don't know what these flowers are but they kinda look like the oleanders that they plant next to the freeways to absorb the carbon dioxide.
    DSC01111.JPG

    They come is several colors
    DSC01112.JPG

    Vineyard with hills in the background, lots of them close to Paso Robles.

    This is the intersection of Hwy 46 & 41 where James Dean crashed and was killed.

    I have never seen so many working oil rigs in one small area before, they are barely 50 feet apart and there must be a thousand of them on Hwy 46 near Lost Hills CA.

    DSC01148.JPG

    We are now in San Dimas and will do some shop tours and get the new driveshaft installed, more pics to follow.

    You're my hero dad. What did I miss about the driveshaft? Did you realize that abandon building you took a picture of on Ca. 49 is one we also stopped at in 05?
