Nice car show planned for the, could someone remind the Ptown police & CHP to provide some traffic control for the event. The past years have resulted in major backups all over the area, from Hopyard/St Marys, Bernal, Foothill, Valley Ave and 680 South of 580.

Hey traffic jam, why don't YOU call up the PD yourself.

Like I said earlier before being censored (disappeared), Mustangs are crappy cars. Slightly more powerful than a Yugo, about as dependable as a Jaguar (one needs a LOT of garage space), the maneuverability of a Humvee, it's a testament to American consumer stupidity.

I agree with Traffic_jam trust me mr Ernie-many of us that live nearby have called the cops numerous times. I live across the street and geez, the jerks that go to the Good Guys think they own the roads and don't have to obey the laws. since when is parking right on a corner or blocking a crosswalk the ok? according to PPD it is. well at least they never ticket these jerks.
Obviously PPD would rather pull over residents that live in P-town for having a cracked windshield rather then issuing parking tickets for blocking crosswalks, fire hydrants etc. I give up. I pay $10k a year in property tax yet I am treated like crap.

I admit I've never gone to any Goodguys car shows, but I think this one is obviously special. No car is more beloved all time. Worth the experience.

Repeat about someone who obviously knows nothing about you know how inept you sound? Last I checked a GT500 Mustang made over 100 HP MORE than a Z28 and over 60 more HP than a new Z07 Corvette.(Comment partially removed by Pleasanton Weekly Online staff as irrelevant to this thread.)

Hey all you Mustang fanatics (or haters) walk over the the Hall of Commerce, building C, for the non-Mustang indoor exhibit. Lot's of Chevys, a 1936 Jaguar, and a 1973 yellow and black Maverick Grabber (mine) that is 41 years old today.
