Shiny in Hollywood

I was just blinded by a whole bunch of shiny on the 101 freeway, heading north thru downtown LA and into Hollywood. The last picture is a reflection of my 4Runner in that nice mirror finish. It's amazing how happy it makes me to see something like this zipping down the freeway!

I'd bet that the TV & hitch set up was done by Can-Am RV from London Ontario. Andy is famous for his unique TV setups.
We saw that outfit in Ajo, AZ. What a head-turner! Yes, Andy did the set-up.

We passed a MoHo with 7 WBCCI stars on it (I think it was number 137), Northbound on I65 in Indiana about 75 miles north of Louisville.

We spotted two here in Columbus OH yesterday. Of course, we almost have an unfair advantage, as we are so close to Jackson City and Alumapalooza!!!!

Saw this on You Tube (pardon the graniness) - a AS parked at the Mojave Desert airplane boneyard. I thought this was symbolic of the longevity of AS and airplanes;
if you look after both, they will last a long time.

BTW, the "jaws" are about to dig into one of Trump's Boeing727 shuttles which had a long and varied career after coming off the assembly line in 1969.

Great shot; history in the making!

Here's a bit clearer version of that photo. You can click on it for a bit larger version.

Thanks Aage! You obviously have the bells and whistles to fix-up photos.

Sure. It's painful for me to watch some of these birds being scrapped - great airliners like the Boeing-727 and L-1011, since my other hobby is resurrecting them.

Airstream is at 3:53.
