On the way we intended to stop at a fru-fru organic bakery in the hamlet of Freestone (Wild Flour Bread).

We always go there when visiting Bodega Bay. The crowds can be intense and parking non-existent, that's for sure. Check out Freestone Artisan Cheese the next time you are through there, if you are into that sort of thing.

Today I toured around the middle of my state and saw several old cars either on the road or parked.  I saw a clean Chevette parked.  I briefly considered turning around for a picture but kept going.  Elsewhere I saw a tiny Japanese pickup (Kei car), with a procession of cars backed up behind it,  drivers presumably grumbling about it being allowed on a busy road.

A few days ago I saw a BMW 2000 CS like this one.

My father and I used to browse a government car auction in NJ. They had everything from stripper fleet cars to used police cars and confiscated cars.  One time there was a BMW like this there. We didn’t bid, figured it probably was a drug confiscation and didn’t want to run into the previous owner driving it!

Saw 67 and 68 Camaro hts, stock, hubcaps, original colors. Two completely different parts of town. Not red, just that fawn color and light green metallic. Forget names. 
Drivers being driven. Hadn’t seen stock camaro in years.

I am. 👍  Dropped $21 for 4 scones but they are very good scones.

Well, I am a Rat, so i love cheese. Plus our friend that hosts us in Bodega Bay every year has the hots for The Cheese Dude. I wasn't there this year for The Cheese Purchase because they went to Freestone and I went the other way to the grocery store. I think that $50 in cheese came back

The savory scones from Wild Flour are amazing. I am not so much into sweet scones, but they should be allowed to exist.

I don't have any photos, but I have an amazing savory scone recipe from a friend. I took some to Bodega Bay one year and our host proclaimed them as good as Wild Flour's.

If you ever find yourself in Tillamook, Oregon, you gotta go to the cheese factory. I highly recommend buying a block or two of their aged white cheddar cheese in the gift shop afterwards. They have it in different years, 2014 and older. Best cheese I’ve ever had.

Got to visit the Tillamook cheese factory many years ago and I have to agree. While the quality may not be exactly the same we are now able to buy their prepackaged cheeses locally at the Super Target stores.

Sports car cosplay?  I saw one of the "hero" cars at the Petersen Museum.  It looked very cobbled together.

 

It looked like a pretty good conversion from what I could see while passing it on the freeway.

Something very different. Went to an estate auction preview in Barstow, CA and checked out this very very rare Jeep FC van:

Built for the Marine Corps around '64-'65, it originally had a three-cylinder diesel engine - replaced by a Jeep (or Buick?) V6. The Military Jeep FC Registry lists only three others existing. Word got out about it - bids are up to $12,000 at the moment default_ohmy2.png.4ff82e20a0cf32fd2d84777e4c7c6b31.png.

Rest of the auction - with a lot more Jeeps - here:

UPDATE: $old for 19,250.

This was actually last weekend, but I figured I'd still post it. There is a no-prep drag strip down in Berkeley Springs, WV that we go to often. Well, we were there last Saturday, and saw this cool thing. An old Ford Fairlane with a Paxton-supercharged 427 under the hood.
