Re: I'm back in Tijuana.

I have had to move since I returned. I'm now living in the big city.

Re: EARLY MANIAGO SWITCHBLADE

What a wonderfully historic piece. That's a "safe queen" of course, and should be in a museum.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: I'm back in Tijuana.

I could not find any unusual knives here. (They're mostly all available online in the US). I will probably never have a friend along with me as most are either busy and still believe the "old wive's tales" about Tijuana, Rosarito, Puerto Nuevo, La Fonda, and Ensenada. Yesterday, I enjoyed a handmade...

Re: I'm back in Tijuana.

I haven't seen any swing guards that aren't broken. The China Gravity knives look poorly made they're not assembled very well.

Re: I'm back in Tijuana.

I have found some of the same stuff that was here last time. There's a whole bunch of old lock-back knives and a few Chinese-made imitation German gravity knives. a few OTF Chinese clones. The shops on Revolution Avenue don't seem to have much inventory coming in. What was here two months ago is, fo...

Re: I'm back in Tijuana.

The car is fine but wore myself out driving too many hours. I stopped in Red Bluff, CA to enjoy a 5-hour visit with a man on his acreage that is installing a Chevrolet V8 in a 1974 Jaguar XJ6. I took a "no services" off-ramp about 61 miles north of Los Angeles and slept sitting up in the driver's se...

I'm back in Tijuana.

I'll be headed to the shops tomorrow to see what I can find. (It would be nice if I could find things everyone would want).

I try to enjoy myself, but I have to be careful about what I buy. If you are caught with automatic knives, the fines get very steep. If you throw firecrackers in the surf away from others, the police, firefighters will get angry if you don't watch yourself and get too close to others.

Re: I just put a $1000.00 down payment on a 1997 Jaguar XJ6L (X330)!

Look for more of those Korean Rizzy to help pay for the gas used on the trip !! That may happen. It will likely run a maximum of $528.00 for gasoline and $350.00 for a hotel room. www.hotelaquario.com That's edging close to $900 to get there and back another $500.00 for food, edging me to $1400.00 ...

Hope your trip goes well for you and your new car. Thanks, Sammy. The Jag is very nice. I am adjusting my "trip cycle" to make certain that I can truly relax when I arrive. If I arrive at the US/Mexico border during the mid-morning hours It is easier to store my clothes in the room and get some ine...
