IRISH-CALIFORNIAN USED CAR DEALER

This picture's from the office of SDS Auto, the place where I bought my L.A. car.


The guy who sold it to me, Brian, was an Irish immigrant with a heavy Irish brogue who said he came out here "for a few months" ten years ago.  I told him I had been to Dublin and gone to Dublin City University one summer when I was a teenager, and I thought the country was beautiful and the people were lovely, which is true.  He said, "It rains all the time."

He also had a bunch of swords:

The car is a '97 Honda Civic with 165K miles on it.  I dropped $3K on it upfront.  I've been driving it for a week.  It seems to run okay.  Who knows.
