1929 Model A Roadster Pickup

IMG_20150203_00131951 – My family is now living in California.  Our main house is in San Marino near LA but on weekends we’d drive down to Vista CA near San Diego where we had a small lemon ranch. My dad bought this Model A as a ranch truck.  I soon claimed it as mine, cleared a race track on some vacant land to the left of this picture, and spent hours every weekend honing my skills as a dirt track racer.  At 12 years old, I was allowed to drive on any of the dirt roads near our property which gave me a radius of about a mile.  That’s me holding the yucca stalk.  This might have been the day Dad brought it home and the others must be neighbors checking it out – I don’t recognize any of them.
