Old School term used Hot Rodders and surfers from the Southern California area, circa the 1970's
Refers to someone who is always making excuses for not following through. Attempting to explain things away by glossing it over or leaving out the sordid details to make it look like it wasn't their fault. A person from Southern California who is full of BS or full of questionable excuses.
We drove all the way to Joe's place in L.A. yesterday to pick up the engine for the hot rod. He still doesn't have it finished. When we confronted him about it, he spun us a bull shit story about all the hold ups on the project. With him, it is the same old Socal Stroke!
