Day 9 – Palm Springs

Woke up intending to go to LA today, but it really is far, far too pleasant in Palm Springs. The first properly warm weather I have had on the entire 2 week trip so far.So I decided to just kick back by the pool and enjoy the sunshine.

It also happened that the big event in Palm Springs this weekend was a Classic Car Auction – packed full of extemely exotic American metal… _1020272 _1020277 _1020284 _1020288 _1020294 _1020300

The auctioneer was hilarious – the whole thing was conducted in a kind of strange high speed sing-song rap, with cars rolling on and off the block every two or 3 minutes and lots of furious bidding.

First day of the trip when I haven’t driven the Challenger. Feel a bit guilty. Will make up for it with a fast final drive down into Los Angeles tomorrow and a good nose around all the big sites, before it has to go back to Hertz on tuesday 😦
