Well, got out of work early this last Friday and since many schools are still out (UCLA, most thankfully) traffic was light. So grabbed the family and went to Bob’s Big Boy. I have been going on and off for years to the Car Night, even took the Ripper one night. It was really nice weather was really nice during the day and I figured some good cars would crawl out of the woodworks. And I was not disappointed. Some nice cars, some rat rods, a couple of cars with healthy motors and a few with mechanical cams so I was happy. Beard’o in a Z06 vett’ so that stereotype was satisfied. Saw a kid roll a ball under a moving 430 Ferarri, then the parent motions for the driver to stop to retrieve the ball but puts his hand on the hood for support of his weight as he bent down… You could see the driver cringe. Nice red 427 Cobra (A REAL ONE for a change), some nice Dodge products, a big tire 1969 Camaro, the engine however, seemed like a hydraulic cammed and thus likely using NOS as a crutch. Might have to toss some smack next time.
Overall if you want to a quick and fun car gathering Bob’s is an excellent spot. Put your name in for the 45 minute wait for the restaurant and check out the cars, it will be just about perfect! I can’t wait for the summer as the cars only get better. One caveat, if you go too often you will become bored with many of the same cars, so mix it up. I don’t know of other family places to have dinner and check out cars, but if you have some that are in the San Fernando Valley, send them!
