1. I have gone to the freeway. I have gone to the freeway in my Freeway. I also have gone to the freeway towing my Freeway. I only have one Freeway, however, so I have never gone to the freeway in my Freeway towing a Freeway. This man, therefore, is my hero:

    1. One of the nights of Carmageddon I headed out to the westside, got on the 405 heading south just south of the bridgework, and I didn’t see another car until Santa Monica Blvd.
      It. Was. Creepy.

      1. I have family in Reseda and family in Santa Monica, so every time I go to L.A. I drive this at least twice. I’ve done it at 3:00 a.m. and it was a no-accidents-or-hazards bumper-to-bumper crawl. I’ve never seen it *not* jammed. Can’t imagine it empty.

      2. Also, one summer visit a few years back, it was 65 degrees in Venice, 112 in Reseda. I remember hitting a wall of heat just past the summit and wondering if my engine had blown up.

  2. I love this photo, it screams “Progress”. Yes, let’s sit in the healthy California sunshine next to this shiny new freeway winding through these picturesque hills. Everything is perfect here and it clearly will be that way FOREVER. We are Americans and this is our century.

    1. At least people back then managed to entertain themselves simply by going places and looking at new things in amazement.
