    They were pretty good. I can still taste them today. And they certainly never made me take up the real thing later because I didn't.

    The whining would be tremendous if someone brought them back today and kids started enjoying them again.

    Googling the image throws up one pic that states 1 of 4. So I don't know if that means built by Ford as a production item a prototype or by a coachbuilder.

    I think the plates are Swedish.
     
  3. Nope, I wasn't a sugar freak, I started on real ones at age 11, and spent the next 20 years trying to quit. My smoker's cough was so bad that my mynah bird used to mimic me.

    Hello,
    So Cal locals travel the major freeways from the time they started in Pasadena a long time ago and continue to do so on a daily basis. But, the Harbor Freeway and the Long Beach Freeway do not connect or crossover. The only way to get from one to the other are off ramps connected to cross streets and those two freeways are miles apart.

    The title is mislabeled. The closest they get to each other is down in the Long Beach -San Pedro Harbor areas, about 7 miles apart. They also come close as one nears Pasadena North. But, they do not cross each other on overpasses or interchanges.

    There are several other major freeways that were built during those times and they cross the Harbor Freeway at a 90 degree overpass, like the 8 concrete poles suggest. (unless the photo is describing a hidden Long Beach Freeway 7 miles distant in the photo, past downtown LA in 1960)

    Jnaki

    The freeways do get upgraded and fixed over the years. But, once in place, it is hard to mislabel two such major freeways bisecting the Los Angeles basin. In 1958, the building of plenty of other major freeways was going on, including the future 710 or Long Beach Freeway.
