Gogi Paai,

give us some night shots. Blinger alloys and under body neons .

Or you are not allowed to venture out in the night alone ?

A small clarification on OCC. Though OCC has Orange County in it's name, it is not located in Orange County, CA. But it is located on the other side of the continent, NY. Paul Sr. himself mentioned in one of the episodes that many people get confused with the name.
Bro i said OC as in the place (did u know they have an Orange even in Florida?)not the OCC as in Paul Tetul. Never mentioned or impied that.

know u will be surprised. I hardly saw any such things on the road. Even the nights i was out Alone or not... they were like invisible. I even drove into an african american neighbourhood to see these things but no way. Im trying to search these places they show so often in the movies. even the ones i saw wrer while i was driving or been driven so no actual time to get camera out. I think one will find more such beauties as a common sight in malaysia or thailand

@ Iraghava - Ishan only an idiot would think that a dodge caravan is an upgrade from a 300C what i meant was i had booked a 300 but they were out of cars so i opted for a status which is a midsize car and cheaper than a 300. The chick upgraded me from a stratus to a caravan which is like $40 more...so thats that. Buss kya yaar i would've died if she had meant what you thought!!
and i know its an H1 but its stilla hummer right. I think the one with that pick up thingy is called a SUT

Re the minivan, id rather drive a minivan than spend $30 more per day for a suzuki forenza aka optra(yuck)

There is a small narrow road which goes through a very very rich area to a small hillock. Thats the best place to see that sign. If you look down from the hill you see the whole of LA.
Its a very very unknown spot and we found it when we lost our way!
There were just 2 more people there, that spot is so deserted.
If you are interested I will dig up the old GPS logs which I may still have.
hey dude ..I think u are talking about Griffith park...
the unknown spot/hillock is near Dante's right ?? the narrow path leading from the observatory.. ??
so when did u visit ?

I was there on 28 May last year. Visited the beach, the Universal studios, but no disney.
No idea what it is called
Here is the view. Note its not a telephoto shot, but taken with a normal wide angle lens(kit lens at 35mm)
Towards the Sign

Towards LA


It looks so close that you can almost touch it

I have just seen the huntington and newport beach. Travelling by local bus makes you limited. Public transport system sucks in the US.
BTW did you check out the Fashion Mall in Irvine. Irivine has the nicest cars, I have never seen so many Ferrari's and Porsches on roads.
