Shown above are some of the 35 young "hot-rod" driving enthusiasts who were sentenced today to five days in jail each. All of the drivers lost their licenses for 30 days. Officer Harold Nenny, background, holds the drivers' suspended licenses (arrow). The young drivers were accused of holding regular weekly "meets" along Sepulveda boulevard near San Fernando road".

    Interesting pic's. The car in the first pic doesn't need a windshield sticker to let everyone know that it's a "Traffic Violator".
