One of the many things that makes California worth living in (and paying taxes for, and enduring rent costs in, etc.) is the car culture. Although this set of photos is from a while back, I still feel lucky to know Morgan and I could take a weekend trip down to Vista, CA (inland from Oceanside, about 45 minutes north of San Diego) and attend such a cool open house event. Not only did we get to look through a ton of amazing cars inside and outside HRE's HQ, we got to learn about how HRE Wheels are made from raw materials to shipping to consumers. Definitely an event to put on your list for next year.
