Wonder what's on that prime tract of real estate now ?
The Beverly Wilshire hotel is right there, built shortly after the track closed in 1920. It's the most expensive real estate location in Los Angeles.
Gaston Chevrolet died here in 1920.
Clayton's car is hiding behind the Ford coupe front and center.
Wouldn't you just love to be the guy parked right in the middle of all of that, who needed to leave early?
It's hard for people to grasp today that less than 100 years ago, LA was nothing but a great big oil field.
Alright Dan! Clayton who? I was hoping someone would move that coupe so I could get a better look at the car behind it. Of course, I wouldn't mind if they moved that coupe to my garage. Although I am not sure what I would do with two coupes? I like my '24 coupe a lot! But I do like the earlier style a little better.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Wikipedia: It was built in 1919 on 275 acres (1.11 km2) of land that includes the site of today's Beverly Wilshire Hotel, just outside of the "Golden Triangle". The former site is bounded by Wilshire Boulevard, South Beverly Drive, Olympic Boulevard and Lasky Drive.
The way the spare tire hangs off the back that could be a Mercury behind the coupe.
Wonder how deep the lineups were for the privvy's ...
Maybe it is yours?!
Wonder why it only lasted the better part of one year ??

Should have looked in my crystal ball....
