    And here you are. You knew this place was here because it is an official State of California Monument. If those outside the state didn't think we were crazy this will prove it.

    No doubt Lito must have been a character.

    I've always loved these airmail boxes. Recently people have changed them to junk mail boxes.

    Finally people are still throwing hub caps over the fence 25 years or so since Lito's death.

    Yes indeed one of the sights to see in my neighborhood.

    Much more fun to look out than a BARFer with his bike stuck in a tree for low siding up the road.

    I've passed this numerous times on the back way up to Lake County, but I've never really stopped and looked. Thanks for sharing your pictures and the story - pretty cool!

    I hate hubcaps. I think they should be outlawed. I mean who has hubcaps anymore anyway.
    Alloys. A perfect world is where there are no hubcaps and all cars, bikes, etc come with alloys as standard, and hubcaps are not offered as an option, and aftermarket hubcaps don't exist.
    And all the old hubcaps are melted down and made into new bikes.

    I thought I had some photos of the Pearsonville hubcap farm but I can't find them now.
