By Burbank airport
of the main reasons for picking this motel was because most of the 13 mile drive
We found it!
Evan spotted me!
After check-in, it was onward to find my spot.
The Franklin Canyon Drive loops around the lake.
The Roaming Gnome
got his time in the CA sun, and a lift from a obliging Park Ranger.
OK, time to walk around to see what else is here.
that moment a musical exhaust note spun me around, barely in time to catch this
gorgeous Ferrari passing by!
A bunch more Vettes
Facel Vega and Delorean
A 4-door hardtop Facel Vega
A VERY bright Morgan 3-wheeler!

More of the scenery off to the sides of the
road the show cars were on, which loops around Franklin Canyon Lake.
Back to cars - nice early Camaro!

Back where we started, and it's still here.
