Mitch O'Brien, the residents called the department Saturday and Sunday and reported that drivers from Team Tow had taken their cars without reason. Law dictates that a car may be towed if its owner parks it in a customers-only lot and leaves for an hour without going into any of the businesses that the lot serves, O'Brien said.

It unfolds with Beverly at the young age of 11, played with sass by Mika Boorem, telling her father (James Woods)

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- With cars already zooming down Pacific Coast Highway, a city plan to add more lanes to the busy thoroughfare is driving some nearby residents nuts. "It's going to be a speedway," said Rhonda Jones Pisani. Not only will driving the highway become more harried, but Pisani is concerned it will become even more dangerous for beach-goers who jaywalk across the highway. A number of pedestrians have been struck -- even killed -- by passing cars over the years.

Curtains came down on the Munsters in 1966 - long before I was born. So imagine my surprise Friday when I noticed the Munster Koach trundling down Main Street with a full-throated rumble. The 18-foot vehicle sported a brass radiator and fenders, pearly black paint and a deep red velvet interior - blood red, if you will, to fit the theme of the 1960s sitcom. Brett Barris - the son of famed custom car designer George Barris, credited with the inception of the Batmobile as well as Drag-U-La from "The Munsters" - watched the hot rod being inched painstakingly into the Huntington Beach Art Center.
