Silver Lake’s 1941 Texaco was given a 2nd life today, it’s been on track to that Historic-Cultural Monument magic status, and the developers that bought it to demolish and replace with an apartment building are miffed. Tough.

above, what it once looked like, when it was fresh as a new egg, and loved like a puppy. But that was 70 years ago

And it’s been neglected a long time. Inflation is a bitch, and squeezing every last dime out of making a living kills any day to day upkeep, and rarely does anyone have the spare cash to get deep into a building restoration

Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell initiated the landmarking process in March before demolition work could begin.

Planning staff notes in a report on the building that older service stations are “becoming increasingly rare” in Los Angeles. City officials have awarded landmark status to only three: in Pacific Palisades/Santa Monica Canyon, Brentwood (Sunset and Barrington intersection) and a Gilmore in Hollywood, now a Starbucks at 859 North Highland Ave.

Happy Ferris Bueller day! I bet you didn’t know June 5th was anything car related special… but it happens to be the anniversary of the day Ferris took off to watch the Cubs played the Braves in 1985

June 5th, 2018 by admin

the Cubs’ June 5 game against the Braves occurred on a Wednesday and plausibly happened near the end of Bueller’s senior year, which matches with the details given in the movie. Paramount has also celebrated June 5 as the definitive marker. As such, Granillo’s baseball theory remains the most airtight marker of Bueller’s day off.

Doc Browns van…. and Delorean transporter. That’s a pretty cool rig to have, and would be the ultimate accessory if you had a Delorean that was fixed up with all the gadgets to look like the movie car

Roy Rogers, 1958 magazine cover photo on a Harley, and an Indian in 1946

April 6th, 2018 by admin

Roy Rogers rode out to Hollywood in the early 30’s on a motorcycle when times were bad and transportation costs were high. He took a liking to the sport, riding his Indian until World War II. Out of the saddle for 16 years his last bike was a 74 cubic inch Harley-Davidson.

It’s too bad he lived so long before me, I’d have liked to have met him. I bet he was one hell of a nice guy.

Thanks Steve!

how to sell records 101. Borrow any one of Norm Grabowski’s cars, and get some college girls who are happy to add to their modeling portfolio. Get a good musician. Done.

Les Baxter had joined Mel Tormé’s Mel-Tones at the age of 23, the arranged and composed for swing bands in the 1940s, among luminaries such as Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra.

In the 1960s, he formed the Balladeers, a conservative folk group with a young David Crosby. He worked in radio as musical director of the Bob Hope and Abbott and Costello shows.

Baxter worked in films in the 1960s and 1970s such as scores for Roger Corman’s films and beach party films including Muscle Beach Party and Beach Blanket Bingo.

He made classic exotica records, Ritual of the Savage and Tamboo!, (go cat go, crazy swing daddy!) were hit successes, so Capitol Records went on a limb and used him to get teen record money and Les Baxter’s Teen Drums was made.

And it’s cool music:

A follow-up to the popular Skins! of 1957, Les Baxter’s Teen Drums was a return to pure beat territory. “Ting Ting Ting” and “Brazil Nuts” start the album off with furious bongo bashing busy rhythms, but then slow to a more sedate pace as Teen Drums delivers its skeletal arrangements and tightly restrained beats.

Les Baxter’s Teen Drums is exotica of sorts, perfect for the average space-age bachelor’s cocktail party.

Les Baxter recorded these swinging tracks with various Pacific Coast drum stars, jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Porto-Rican skin-thumpers. No music was written. They all simply sat down in a studio on Hollywood’s Vine Street and started pounding.

oh yeah, the hot rod… Norm Grabowski’s of course, later to be “My Mother The Car”. Well, Les had dabbled in acting, “College Capers” with Norm and Mamie Van Doren. That’s probably why Norm’s car is on the cover of this album

George Barris claimed to have built the car because Norm Grabowski sold the car to a prop man Kaye Trapp who along with father of Craig Breedlove, Norm Breedlove, was a special effects guy who modified the car for the show.

They went a bit silly on the Veloster in the upcoming super hero movie, Ant Man and the Wasp

Nice Weld Star rims, but the side pipes? A bit silly, especially when you see this car drive away and see that they still have the two exhaust tips in under the license plate

the movie looks like it’s going to be terrific

for gods sake they even have the passenger side pipes block the back door!

Saoutchik bodied 1948 Cadillac Series 62

November 28th, 2017 by admin

In 1948 noted New York City furrier, Louis Ritter, commissioned Saoutchik to create a special convertible on a Cadillac chassis.

He borrowed only few styling cues from the Cadillac line and used them in a distinctly French way with hopes that the car would gain attention from America. This car was displayed at the Paris Salon of 1948 where it stole the show.

The story goes that the first owner drove the car out to Hollywood and used it there for only a few months before tiring of it and selling it. It was then acquired by a mid-western business man, Harold McLean, from Santa Barbara whose wife’s favorite colors, it seems, were lilac and purple.
