  • Los Angeles Chapter Winter Meet

    Went to the L.A. Winter Meet last weekend at the Petersen Museum. They do a good job and have fun. This year they invited some autoettes (electric carts) and it really introduces something new. The weather was perfect, the cars were great the what can I say about the people.

    About 45 cars with including the carts. Look up their website for pictures.

        We know it's winter in Southern California when the temperature drops to 45 deg and there is a chance of rain. Bud

                      Actually, when I lived down there I looked forward to Winter! Summers were just... miserable.

                      Oh... that's what an Autoette is! Are they gas, like a Cushman?

                        Most of them at the show were electric, although there were two gas powered ones. They were driving around in the afternoon. Alot of fun!

                          Snowed in Altadena at least five times when I was there during high school in the early Seventies, but I was on the last street above Lake, off of Chaney Trail about ele. 2000'. It was gone by noon, usually. Never did snow that I remember below Mt. Baldy much earlier in the Sixties around the orange groves of Claremont.

                          Bud, it either rains a bunch down there by the beach in Hawthorne, or up against the mountains where I was, but not too often in the middle! Sure do miss L.A. winter car shows and the winter-only, green hills...until about June. Thanks for sharing the fun and sparking some easy winter memories. I think I can smell the sage in the Arroyo.

                              That '50 convertible looks sweet. I see one member with the local chapter logo on his back. Any of those shirts for sale, Howard?
