I was at a car show in Long Beach with the race car and planned on coming after.
Until child-care imploded and I had to get back to Santa Monica... I so want to support this place and the Exotica/mellow surf bands.
I told a ton of folks about Dons at the car show. How was the turn-out in general?
August 7th at Dons--pass it on...

So that was you with that magnificent 427 Cobra? I was going around all evening looking for the owner. I hope that my staring didn't chip the paint! I had a beautiful black '85 289 with wide white stripes, blueprinted to the specs in the '84 coupe that won LeMans. Gosh! I loved my "Bete Noir." She won major car shows for her beauty, and several high-speed slaloms for her power. I transfered title and put her in storage when I ran for the LA City Council, and then sold her when I won to pay the costs of the campaign--$25,000. Bad image for a politician. Bad scene! The guy that bought her from me only lasted about 3 months when he killed himself running her badly through the Sunset Boulevard curves at 120. Well, anyway you have one beautiful baby there. Don't take it racing, please! Just keep it under your bed at night.
ALSO, did you know that I had a great big moai? Yep, it's true. People are starting to come around just to stare at it. It's not hard to see. Just drive by and you can't miss it, though you get a better vuew up close. Heck, I've had to chain it down just to protect it, and now I'm considering building a steel cage around it. I'm inviting everyone to come and have a drink to it! We'll let you know if we're having a naming contest. If you enter you can touch it.
