Thursday--Irwindale Raceway
We're fudging the rules again to accommodate a night of drag racing. And really, your local test 'n' tune is just cruising taken to the next level to include such gross displays of horsepower as burnouts, full-throttle acceleration, and plenty of trash talking. With the CC/Rambler fresh off a clutch change, we caravanned with Editor Glad to the track for a night of eighth-mile drag racing.

Friday is Bob's night, as in Bob's Big Boy in Burbank. This is a legendary cruise spot in Los Angeles County, and Bob's has been hosting a Friday night cruise for decades. The restaurant itself opened in 1949 and is the oldest remaining Bob's Big Boy in the U.S. Architect Wayne McAllister penned its swoopy, space-age design that is so distinctive-looking today among the surrounding office buildings and generic shopping centers. Because of its popularity, you'll see a little of everything at Bob's--from million-dollar Shelby Cobras to rat rods that look like they were built for less than the cost of a Big Boy burger, there's always something cool to look at and interesting people to talk to.
