So I read there will be some freeway closures. The 710 being one of them. But I read that it's supposed to be next week but they really don't give a date so I'm hoping they mean next week for real.

 

Caltrans crews will close lanes of the Long Beach (710) Freeway between Atlantic Boulevard and the Pomona (60) Freeway overnights starting next week.

Between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday up to four northbound lanes from Atlantic Boulevard to the Santa Ana (5) Freeway will be closed as well as the Atlantic/Bandini boulevards and Washington Boulevard off ramp and the Atlantic Boulevard on ramp and the connector road from the northbound Long Beach Freeway to the northbound Santa Ana Freeway.

Up to four lanes of the southbound 710 could be closed from the Santa Ana Freeway to Atlantic Boulevard as well as the Washington Boulevard on and off ramps, The Atlantic Boulevard on ramp and the Atlantic/Bandini boulevards off ramp.

The 710 Freeway closures Friday will last from 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday and Saturday from 7 p.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday, officials said.

 

So you might want to just keep a lookout on the freeways for any road work this weekend just in case.

I just got Stanley out of the shop this afternoon. Driving away and find out my turn signal won’t work. Had to go after work and get bulbs. I still need to wash him and get stuff together. Oy! I hope you make it tanker.

I didn't get as many photos as I usually do so forgive me. I got a migraine Friday night and was still trying to ward it off Saturday so I was rather doped up on migraine meds so my give a shit wasn't really there. At least I wasn't hurting thank goodness.

 

Everybody knows Stanley

This white guy pops up a lot because he's my father-in-outlaw. They love it when I call them the out-laws.

Tim Ming's Baja 1000, 1070 Honda N600
This was Honda's first race car effort. Built for the 1970 Baja 1000, driven by Bill Robertson Jr., and Dave Ekins. Unfortunately it did not complete the race. A failure in the CV joint drive hub snap rings caused them to come apart when the car would jump and become airborne. Robertson was driving in the race and every time this happened he would get out and shove the hub back into place to go a bit further and have the same problem. He kept doing this until, exhausted, he threw in the towel.

Almost forgot. I had Baby Groot in Stanley's rear window. Solar powered. Cracked me up every time I looked at it.

There was a Ford there? Did I take a picture of it? I must’ve been  really high on meds. I know I wasn’t hardly paying attention to anything.

That truck has been there at the last few JCCS shows to promote Matchbox cars. They set up and raffle off some cars and give out goodies.

 

My biggest question is was why there was a Buick/Opal there? Then I find out it is originally and Isuzu car.
