California Car Culture

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

California culture is clearly based on the car.

This is a street legal Honda camouflaged as a racecar, actually a demonstration sound machine, seen here in front of a Fry’s Electronic store in Oxnard.

Driving north out of the Los Angeles area on the five-lane, Ventura Freeway, it feels like a slow paced parking lot to Santa Barbara.

At 20 MPH, one ends up on the bumper of the vehicle ahead where two flashes from a turn signal, before a car squeezes into your lanes, must be considered a lot of notice. However, at that speed, an out of state driver begins to notice things that one doesn’t see at the posted 70 MPH speed.

There is a lot that can be done with seven digits. Personal plates give insight to the owners of vehicles.

Add a heart symbol to the alphabet and numbers and the dynamics expand.
