That would be the Snap-On truck. It's a mobile Snap-On tool store that gets around. I've been in once twice, has a ton of stuff, but be prepared to either spend nothing or spend a whole lot....

You can also just order from their website.

If you want to find a truck while you're here it might be best to call Snap-On and see if they can direct you to someone who's near wherever you might be staying.

Do you have a kit already or are you looking to get one?

Just PM some of the guys above who can call the Snap-On truck to meet you. They'll need a location where you're at since LA is HUGE. It could be more than 50 miles in just LA county and almost 100 miles if you include Orange County.
