THIS is why I'm glad that I grew up smack dab in the middle of the street-rod heydays of SoCal in the 60's and 70's! What a place and time!

(The place is a 'nanny' shizz-pool now, and I won't even visit family and friends there)

Texas is quite a bit like Cali used to be - do what you want, when you want, the way you want - and everyone will leave you alone, unless you do something blatantly irresponsible.
