Thanks for posting these Skyline. I love seeing all the old cars from when you could actually tell one make and model from another. More importantly, I appreciate being able to view the lake from the downtown area.

I look at the cars in the images I try to remember whose cars they were; Knick was a good player at that game. The white t-bird at the post office the black Pontiac on pineknot the new black Camaro at and the el-camino it looks to have side boards in the bed. The cars are cool some you might still see driving around the valley. You can view a lot of old images of Big Bear on ebay not many of the 60s 70s. Images I have not came across any of the fighter Jet that was at Meadow Park, the half-track that set at LH Liquor for years.

In the bottom 2 pictures of the bumper cars looks like my parents 63 Chevy pick up. Not sure when in 72 that was taken. I was born in June so if it was before I was born that could very well be my parents truck (which became mine when I turned 16.)

juju--he's down the hill but comes up here often. I think he's avocado only, but I could be wrong. I'm just about to reorder.

This helicopter has been hovering around this area over the past 3 hours and I still don't know what is going on.

I’m not familiar with Tomas who does wood. Does anyone have his number? I assume he is up here?

Scrambled, I know Tomas has been busy, but I had my wood delivered by him last week, so did Lumber Jill and Cammy, I know he's around. Just keep calling him, he'll answer eventually!

Good morning all. I just heard and saw on the KTLA news that Tahoe and surrounding areas got their first snowfall yesterday. I hope Benny is gearing up for this year's SNOW POLL season! It could be epic! Perhaps a radio deal with KTOT could be reached....oh wait, never mind they sort of went out of business a few decades back. Have a great day!
