I decided to tour Downtown Los Angeles and duplicate my 1988 'Lakers or Celtics' poll - two decades later. And I realized - it's not easy finding parking Downtown!
Which is why having my friend 'Crif' escort me in his Mercedes was a bonus. He'd pop the hood feigning car problems in no-parking zones while I hit the streets looking for interview victims.
I wanted to shoot out his window as we drove, but a faulty fuse prevented that from happening. I think my friend should trade his Mercedes in for a Yaris.
Most of the participants were by the Central Library.
