Wonder what happened to the soldier under the front of the Dodge WC?

I think it was just a first aid exercise around Aug 41 - note the black chassis rails and blue louvre lights though.
I love the smell of cosmoline in the morning!

I wonder if the toll "plaza" is the same one as used in "The Godfather"??

Can you imagine what the liberal inhabitants of SF would do if we drove a fully armed 352 towing a howitzer (and .50 AA gun), a few jeeps with ATGs in tow down by the fishermans wharf?

I stood in just about the exact same place as some of those pics with the GG bridge in the background. COMPLETLY different... change for the worse :(

I think we will all be surprised at the number of people of "alternative lifestyle" who are militant :lol:

I live about 20 min south of San Francisco, I only go there when I really have to. The changes I've seen there in the 53 years I've been above ground are remarkable. Some for the good, most for the bad. What the H... happened? I know, "Liberalism" has run wild there for the last 30-40 years. :(
