Freak of the Week: Wolfman Jimmy

There’s a truck parked in my neighborhood that my dog Gunner likes to pee on. Don’t believe me? Here’s Gunner in the left side of the photo..approaching his target: But who can blame him. Especially because the object of his affection is this magnificent GMC Jimmy +Homegrown trailer + Campershell combo. Here’s a better look: Yes that’s a chopped off truck bed. And yes, both...

Freak of the Week: Laker Fan Van

So you think you’re a Laker fan. Really? Why is that? Because you bought a season pass?  You slapped a bumper sticker on your Prius? A vanity plate on your Merc? Or perhaps your ass has a Laker tattoo? Well, this guy laughs at you: When this guy drives down the road, you don’t sit back and wonder what he watches on ESPN. There’s no...

Freak Of The Week: Off Road Crown Vic

Although the police stopped using the Ford Crown Vic over 5 years ago, my heart still skips a beat when I see one. Case in point, this doozy I spotted yesterday in Malibu: Those lights!

A few months ago, I was driving in the valley when my daughter whispered in an ominous tone, ‘Mom, you’re gonna wanna see this..” like she had seen something scary like Godzilla or a bare-faced Kardashian.   And there, parked along Topanga Canyon there was the Jettamino. It is, in fact, exactly what it sounds like– a Palomino pony driving a VW Jetta. Just kidding, it’s...

Freak Of The Week: Plutonium Prius

Oh Prius. I know I tend to pick on you. But, let’s face it, you tend to bring it on yourself.  Like this little number recently spotted by a beloved Mini Motorhead in the valley: At first, you think ‘That’s cool. Green flames? Way to differentiate your Liberal-mobile!’  That’s a tall order in these parts.  But then you get a better look: Oh no!  This...
