Too bad they can't get Clinton Keith or Cajalco to go through to the OC. The 74 licks balls

Nah, the 74 is pretty cool really. It's just the slow stupid drivers mixed with the crazy erratic psychotic drivers that make it dangerous and cause all these accidents.

Use to drive Ortega to Irvine and it was pretty bad with everyone tailgating but the scary part was the fast drivers that didn't have good tires ending up in my lane going the wrong way! Hope all involved are okay.
