Re: [T3] My Palomar Hill Climb


Just my 2c on your story. My Grandfather ran the prison road crew that built
that road. My dad and his brother all grew up with the prisoners as friends.
The guys got 2 days credit on their sentence for every day they worked on
the crew. My Grandmother was the cook for the prisoners. Dad was born in
Encinitas and graduated from Escondido High in 1951 and after I was born in
Sandy Eggo in 1964 he had the sense to leave SoCal. When my Grandmother
passed away in 1988, a cousin of mine found all the paper work from the road
crew in her possession and donated it to the Palomar Observatory Museum
where it resides today. Included was the name of every prisoner who ever
worked on the road crew. Pretty cool stuff.

Type 3 content: The first time I drove a type 3 to SoCal (a 1963 Notchback
in 1986) I drove up to the observatory with my 86 year old Grandmother. It
had to be the best Type 3 experience in my life.
