Reflections from a week in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana:

Mimi’s Cafe>Cracker Barrel>Waffle House>IHOP>Denny’s

Chevy’s Ridin High… Everywhere…. Tons of classic american cars on 20’s, 22’s and bigger. Definitely something you don’t see in so-cal. Kind of already a dead fad in the central valley though.

Houses are really cheap. Even in new communities.  $175,000 gets you 3bd, 2bth on a quarter acre.

Seafood is better and cheaper.  We got huge crawfish for $2.80/lb! Cooked!

Alligator really does taste like chicken.

Even the minorities have thick southern accents, and it throws you off.

All the waitresses call you sweetie or hun.

The insects are viscious.

I’ll prolly never visit any of these states again…


New Year

April 18, 2009

This will be the first time in 4 or 5 years that I’m not going to temple or El Dorado for Cambodian New Year. I’m tempted to get some chicken skewers and a thai ice tea for the sake of nostalgia.

My ninera and her husband owned a string on Monte Carlo’s like this one(minus the crazy hydraulics). For some reason the Pachuco aesthetic with metal flake paint and white walls really appeals to me. Maybe it’s the Fresno in me.

I don’t know why people think E-type jags are anything special. They have documented electrical problems, don’t look as good as 2000GT’s, and aren’t  as rare either. This car is more of a resto-mod than an actual classic, but you could probably buy it for a lot less than an actual 2000GT.
