GM filing bankruptcy.

The century-old automaker was for decades the very symbol of American corporate power, selling about half the cars on the road in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. Today, GM's U.S. market share has dropped below 20% as the Detroit company has steadily ceded ground to Japanese brands.

The Free & Easy Library

Every issue from 2004 till current. There is a few from before 2004, but i think that was the year they started to focus more on vintage apparel.

Stage 1 on my 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe

First step is cleaning out all the crap.

This is crap the dude that sold me the car didn't want at his house so he loaded up the trunk. Normal practice.
Trunk clean.
Interior tidy. Air bags being put in this week. I will continue to post photos of the project.


This is my favorite building in Upland California.
Tons of details.
Under construction. Cant wait to see the finished product.

This museum showcases Native American, and local winery history.
