During his career, Worthington set several performance standards in a market that was considered extremely straightforward and rather staid when he first hung out his sales shingle in the ’40s.

“He was the first one to market in that way, mass-marketing individual cars: ‘Here’s one for 29.99.’ You would see several individual cars in a short ad span, in a peppy, jingly way,” said Welch. “He really pushed the envelope.”

The Honda Museum, and really all of Japan, is on my bucket list of places that I need to visit sooner rather than later. Everything about Japan, and I mean everything, fascinates me. Car culture is just a small part of that, but the Honda Museum is one of those places I’ve heard is a must see.

    • Your bad at driving too on:
      Why?
      You realize you're adding to the problem judging from your reactions to others incapable driving. I stopped reading because I know your one of the worst of them all and this is a hypocritical article. You should all have your licenses taken away.
    • BJ on:
      Why?
      I do not see hit and run accidents as much as anywhere in this country. Everyday morning, there are so many cases I see on the news.. Why???? If it rains, forget it... You think you have to drive 20 mph on the highway when you see a rain drop.... People drive in rain and snow all the time. I see that CA people are not used to drive with rain but at least try to learn instead of driving 20 mph and saying it is safer... Why don't you walk instead? It is much safer that way.

      Why?
      I have lived in FL, AL, MA, MD, NJ, NY and now in CA. CA drivers are the worst among all the states I have lived. Therefore, I am trying to be very truthful and input with "Fact Base" here. I agree lots of things said above but there are some other things. 1. Turn Signal (Already Mentioned) I videotaped so many times because it really made me laugh and angry. I say 30% would be pretty high for people use blinkers. In other state, you get a ticket if you did not use blinkers. In SoCal, No one uses blinkers and it is ok. When they use it, it is not that you would like to let other drivers to know that you are changing the lane of making a turn. Lots of people do it in the middle of the turn. Why bother? 2. Texting People still text while driving and I see that everyday everywhere. When they do, I noticed that majority of them go 35mph on 50mph zone and causing traffic. PLEASE pull over, text and get back on the road. Stay away from your phone... 3. Traffic Light I see so many people in the front so far away from the line so that they do not even go over the sensor on the road. Another thing is you leave 2 school buses space between the car in front of you and your car. One light can make 10 cars pass but with this, only 4 get to go. I know CA people are very laid back, relaxed but come on... Let's move. If you are making turns, please use your blinkers before you get on the left or right lane, not after you get on the turning lane then turn the signal. When you are suddenly slowing down, people behind you do not know what you are doing. 4. Highway Driving It is called "Freeway" here in CA. I get it. But it doesn't mean you can go 50mph on the left lane causing traffic, people keep passing you on the right. If you would like to drive slow, it is your choice but do not cause a massive traffic or make other people to pass you on the right. There are other countries that left lane is specifically for passing and you will get a ticket if you hold up a traffic. It is a common sense. My 3 years of driving experience in CA has been nothing but nightmare... People just stop in the middle of the road without turning signal or any justification. I find it very selfish... I can't wait to get out of CA not to deal with driving. I have driven in most of States but CA makes the worst of all. It is a FACT....
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      Why?
      When you are on HOV lane or passing lane going 50 mph in 65 mph zone, cars passing within speed limit on your right side, please move over. Do not block the whole traffic behind you. Be courteous... I see people leaving 10 school buses space in between cars. Move along with the traffic so that you do not have to be causing the traffic. If you do not want to drive with speed limit, then move over to your right and let others move...
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      "Quite often you see people that will turn right in front of you cutting you off when you are going some insane speed." The problem is your driving at an insane speed. It's insane aa you say.
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      Who the hell do you think you are thinking like you own the road driving dangerously fast, putting lives in jeopardy? Slower, law abiding drivers also have a right to get in the fast lane if they need to switch freeways. I hope they install cameras to get all these potential murderers.

      Don't piss off the truckers
      I have lived in cali for about 5 years now, originally from the mid west. one thing I notice is truck drivers are complete asshloes here. they always drive in the far right lane, don't even slow down to let cars merge. they act like they're driving minis and not an 18 ton car crusher.complete disregard for safty and totally unprofessional. maybe we need another way to ship goods!!!
    • Shijian zhang on:
      Why?
      Hey, bro. I think you might be one of those bad driver! Many people said most left lab is a express lane! Who tol you that? Is there any different limit speed for different lane on the free way? Limit speed for any of the lanes on the free way! Of course I agree that slower traffics are better to stay in the most right lane but it is doesn't mean that you can go over speeding in the most left lane on the free way! I am a California driving instructor and owner. I believe that you need to learn driving again!

      California drivers 80% are stupid drivers,they are reckless, careless drivers and bad attitude.

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
