  1. Love them all, but especially # 6! Wasn’t there a Post cover around this time depicting a couple in an antique car oblivious to their holding up traffic, also going uphill? I may be wrong, but for all I know I may be right.

    Fortunately, even in Los Angeles, I’ve never run into traffic quite like this in #7. THREE gridlocked roads trying to merge into one?! Yikes!
