Janne and her husband Jerry Fecht regularly explore the many things to see in Southern California. Here in July of 2009, she checks out an L.A. Police Department Rescue Unit. This vehicle was more like a tank than a truck.
The Museum was far more interesting than we expected, including two cars used in the huge bank heist of the Bank of America in North Hollywood. Check out the cars on Jerry's Museum of the San Fernando Valley blog
