Literally people just roll up, pop their hoods and hang out. Sounds boring, right? But this is LA, baby! You never know who/what's gonna show up. This week there was a row of about 6 impeccable AC Cobras (not kits), a bunch of Porsche 356s and enough American classics that even your bible-pounding-flag-wearing-Obama-hating-grandpa will have a good time.

Thanks for reading. You can now go back to your cold Dominos, Velveeta dip and farting neighbor in his sweatpants. Go (whoever is playing)!
