Looking for a used car with a pedigree? Maybe a luxury-model Mercedes with low mileage, driven only to weekly private tennis lessons? Or how about a vintage Rolls-Royce, one that's accustomed to being parked outside an exclusive North County address? Well, forget National City's Mile of Cars. Ditto for Car Country Carlsbad. Come on down to the Block of Beauties at the corner of Highland Avenue and Lomas Santa Fe Boulevard in Solana Beach. No pushy salesmen here.

Greg "Merlin" Olsen was determined to see the devastation. He sneaked through a back road, evaded police barricades and wandered through fire-ravaged Scripps Ranch on Monday for a look at his million-dollar home in the plush planned communitynortheast of San Diego. As he approached the half-acre lot on Kingspine Avenue, where his 2,600-square-foot house had stood 24 hours earlier, Olsen struggled to remain composed.

Waving AK-47 rifles, the black-hooded force of 10 assailants barged into the hacienda-style restaurant at lunch. The team, wearing commando uniforms, grabbed the co-owner, jumped into a convoy of three vehicles and disappeared. A week later, 10 men -- wearing similar black outfits -- stormed the swank Club Campestre, snatched a 30-year-old businessman and escaped by crashing the convoy through the security gate.

Jeff Loving served up Slurpees as a clerk at a 7-Eleven store. Vic Gerardi worked as a security guard at a psychiatric clinic. Teri Hartley drove a bus. Tom Bedsworth was a gardener.

They are among the 73 men and women who passed exhaustive pre-employment screening tests and enrolled in the 74th San Diego County Sheriff's Academy in January. Today, Loving, Gerardi, Hartley and Bedsworth earn $9.

ONE sunny morning last year, a middle-aged businessman was turning off the Via Rapida toward work when a convoy of black vehicles slipped behind his car. They caught up with him in his office parking lot and a dozen heavily armed men spilled out, threw him in a van and sped off into the gritty sprawl. Within minutes, his family received the ransom demand -- $1 million. A week later, hands trembling, the businessman's brother said the family still didn't have the money.
