    Word to thw wise, stay away from Motel 6 on Garey Ave in Pomona, try Motel 6 in San Dimas or better yet there are plenty of good quality places along Foothill Blvd (Old Route 66) in Claremont and the Upland area.
     
  19. Good call. That area of Pomona is kind of seedy. Claremont, Montclair, and Upland are just a few miles up the -10 Freeway, and much, much nicer.

    X2 for Motel 6 in San Dimas on Arrow (fri-sat nights for me). Michealangelo's Pizza/Italian food pretty much on the premises (shares the same parking lot), as is Applebees/Dennys/Del Taco......Plus a 99 cent store across the street for cheap snacks.

    I'm going to really make the effort this year and get a couple of swap spaces to set up 'Camp Willys' after years of putting it off - see my signature line;). Mainly 1933-42 Willys parts and cars - couple of coupes, gasser stuff, early hemi stuff, wild induction systems, 60s mag wheels, Halibrand quick changes, some 1930-1940 Ford stuff too - shameless self promotion I know but hey, there's going to be some good stuff and some rare stuff up for grabs. Look for the Willys signs hanging from the EZ Up bring $$$ and say hi....
