So ca fires

I went to the MCA show in Van Nuys, Cleaned my car, begged and called in favors to get the weekend off..Took my car to the show. It was a hot weekend and there were some fires in the county. Friday ws good..Drove my car to the show, got a ride to work,,Went back to the show saturday. The fires were getting worse Saturday. My dirt bike team got called for deployment, but it was volunatry so I deceided to stay at the show.

Sunday I had my son take me to the show.. Now my team got called out along with all of our field operations units,,

So I talked to the head judge and expalined the situation..He was great and since my car had already been judged said I would not be disqualifed for leaving,

I talked to Mike (something special) and he agreed to help me out by accepting anything I would be lucky enough to receive.

I drove home and went to work from 3pm-6am. here are a couple of photos I took while at work

Whoa, MT, glad you are okay. I just got my coffee table book and I had taken my photos on Angeles Crest Hwy 2, and I'll bet you anything that the area where we took the photos is incinerated now.

Be careful out there.

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.
