I wanted to toss in a comment about the crates in the coupe and this popped in and I couldn't delete it.
Anyway, here's my effort; Looks like bears to me. Check out the claws.
Looks like that car was sitting where that Lincoln Zephyr that was up for sale in another thread was. And wouldn't the ass end of that car bee draggin if it was bears. Whatever they are they are S.O.L. Hey another 'A' without a trunk lid...
" Do I want to sell it you ask ? Why no way …. I'm still planning on restoring it someday just haven't had the time to get around to it yet. "
And best wishes to the happy couple!
Lovely view of Alcatraz in the background! I wonder what those McMansions on the right would fetch today!
Those Mcmansions were military housing in the Precedio... and yeah, the real estate types are bustin'chops to get at 'em.
I thought bears at first too, then I noticed the legs, I'm going with turkeys
Site indicated on original post says turkeys.
We have a number of wild turkeys here in town, they certainly aren't afraid of us humans.
NO, It ain't fer sale!!! I'm gunna fix it some day!

Dunkin' day! Mr. Boots gets ready to take a swim.

I always thought good afternoon entertainment would be a six pack and sit and watch a busy boat ramp
That and watching someone anchoring.
It's great fun. We use to ski the L.A. river back in the day before work and on weekends. Launched at a very popular and fairly step ramp called Golden St. ramp. You're exactly right, a cooler full of beer watching folks try to launch and retrieve their boats is better than a movie.
The L.A. river use to be regularly dredged up a mile or so from where it dumps near the Queen Mary. Disgusting water and we'd see all type of things floating, couches, boxes, lumber, all kinds of garbage even a VW roof one time. Don't know if there was a car under it.
Kid got decapitated on a jet ski, he saw a boat go by and swung out and back to jump the wake not realizing there was a skier and a ski rope. Old friend of mine had just been hired as a city lifeguard and was the rookie, had to keep diving until he found the head.
Watching people dock their boats in a busy marina can be pretty entertaining also - the gas dock will easily show the beginners from the seasoned in no time flat.
"Wallenda" on tour!
Yeah, kinda like watching people parallel park in Manhattan. Separates the city slickers from the country folk real quick.
Watching people trying to brake while sliding down a hill covered in black ice is pretty entertaining too. Seem to think they can do it, even after seeing the little herd of dented cars nosed up against each other at the base of the hill.
We used to take our racing Crackerbox the ' Sparkler ' down there to Golden Ave , that's what they called the launch ramp
We would wait till after 5 when the shore patrol would go off duty and run back up the river , then back out towards the Queen Mary and sometimes it would betting a bit dark and you could see the flames coming out of the exhaust
pipes and the white water roostertail thrown up by the prop
Those were fun times
