    Brian,

    The only haze we're seeing now is the blowing dust.

    It's been ripping! The Santa Ana's have been pretty full strength, many structures burned/lost. All good as you come toward our beaches, it is all the foothill stuff that suffers during these type of events. With the record rainfall last year, it has created a lot of fuel!

    My favorite area's!

    Yep hh, you're in a beautiful area. You are old enough also to have witnessed all the change in the OC, it has freakin' blown up, amazing. Everything from the LA Harbor/San Pedro area south is or has been restructured and modernized 10 fold, wait till the Port's O Call area gets through with their rebuild. Just north of me in Long Beach(PCH & 2nd)a 14ac site was just leveled for a whole new 2 level retail/food thingy. Tons of fights in council about the traffic nightmare that will soon start, they don't want to hear it, "It's progress".

    I quit caring about any of this crap a long time ago. I was taught that in the city council meeting I was nearly arrested at.

    Good, it’s windy and dry and I’m busy as hell.

    Got your rear hub ready to go, just slammed and won’t be able to hook up for a couple weeks.

    Best to You, Vic and Julie

    I had my 'hood' '95 Buick work car just got Picasso-ized by Maaco recently. Came out not too bad. Yesterday I pulled the rims, had the tires taken off. Gunna have those rims powder coated/painted back to stock silver, I'll be looking good.:super

    The RN told me just have the rims done in gold color, I don't get it.:loco Jealously I guess.

    As you know you've seen the Goodyear Blimp a number of times in this thread.

    The building process for the new blimp port in Carson, CA continues. Today they have started to inflate the new hangar, I just happen to catch it.

    I hope to be mounting up the wheels on Saturday, I'll have to grab a pic.

    The car has some family sentimental history, my parents bought it new in '95. Since then, they have both passed, I couldn't give up on the car, probably never will! Thing runs better and is much smoother than my 'new' crappy new Toy Tacoma!!!!
