B.R.A.K.E.S.
Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe

LA CAR REPORT— Not long ago, Reed Berry had an opportunity to meet Doug Herbert, NHRA Top Fuel driver and founder of B.R.A.K.E.S.

WHEELS OF FREEDOM
The Car and Civil Rights

LA CAR REPORT—”The coming of the cheap automobile has meant for Southern Negroes, who can afford one, a partial emancipation from Jim Crowism.” That’s Petersen Education Coordinator Jason Hartwig quoting Gunnar Myrdal back in 1944, at the Museum’s inaugural Explorations series.

LA CAR REPORT—When I was a child, old people (which, to me at that time was anyone over 30) used to say that the older you get, the faster the years pass.

All laws take effect January 1, 2017 unless otherwise noted. Reed “The Traffic Guy” Berry reports.

Places and things pretty unique to LA

LA CAR REPORT—Car clubs must have been invented right here in L.A. The “Sidewinders” of Glendale and the “Trompers” right next door in Eagle Rock, the “Iron Charros” downtown, the “Pharaohs”, the “Throttlers”, the “Road Kings” in the Valley(s). Those classic clubs and a hundred others, all got started because of some affinity in automobiles that was more than just a way to get from point A to point B (in this case the Beach) without wasting a lot of time in the city. A Dave Wolin story.
