Exactly !  I'm certain it's a valet service, but it would still take a while.  If you're in a hurry, you are out of luck.

During those times in Long Beach, we were the "Big Dogs" and so at 16 years old we could go to the beach and not have a care in the world!!!!!!!!!!   Also, in the parking lot with the Tudor........the ever popular 57 hardtop with black rims and poverty caps!

I used to go to a blues club on Carrall called "The Spinning Wheel" Powder Blues was the "house" band. Many years later, when my kid started in Elementary school, I started having a conversation with her music teacher, he was a really good jazz trumpet player. We started talking about the late seventies Vancouver punk scene and stuff, realized we had been in a lot of the same places at the same time. As the conversation went on farther, I mentioned the Spinning Wheel, and he said "oh yea, I played there many times, I was in the Powder Blues band". Great "small world" moment.

Vancouver's Orpheam Theater.

I saw Chuck Jones there. Did  a two hour monologue with video clips of his favorite Warner Bros cartoons and background stories on the production and writing of each one, along with background anecdotes about Tex Avery, Fritz Freleng and so on. Two of the funniest, most interesting hours of my life, if you thought the cartoons were funny, you aint seen/heard nothing till you spend a couple hours listening to him. And I was convinced most of it was ad-lib and off the cuff. Absolutely fascinating. RIP Chuck, you were one of a kind.

I had a hunch, but needed to look this one up, it's the New York World's Fair, 1964. World Fairs are a dead issue now, no need to travel to see the latest and greatest anymore, everything is at our finger tips in the digital age.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

These are not my photos, I scammed them off the internet, but I have been in this building, it is AMAZING. Its the main market in Pnom Penn, Cambodia. Its based on an Arabic design, it is self cooling. The high dome in the center with the vents on the side draws the hot air up where it spills out of the vents, which creates an ingoing airflow in the four spokes that radiate outward from the center. The city is very hot and humid, when I was there the outside temp was in the mid 90s' and very humid, it was very cool and comfortable inside the market, and you could feel a gentle cool breeze moving in towards the center. An ancient design and it really works very well. It also doesn't require any artificial light during the day, all the open vents provide really nice natural light.

:o Vintage crash off viaduct in Vancouver. ::)
Funny story. There's an impound yard under the Georgia Street Viaduct, it's probably 75' below, and in those days, it was unlit. About 20 years ago, I was driving across the viaduct with an ex gf (she was also a car nut) about 1am, and said " hey! Holy sh*t there's a 70 ranchero with a shaker in the impound yard!". So we come off the end of the viaduct and circle around the block so we are driving back under the viaduct past the impound yard, sure enough, there it is. She starts laughing, and says "chr*st, it's black! I should have known, only YOU would spot a BLACK ranchero in an unlit parking lot 70 feet below, in the dark, at 70 mph, and notice that it had a shaker hood!" :D One of my finer moments right there... ;D

No it's gone now. My wife and kid have never gone up the Fraser Canyon, just last night we were sitting along the boulevard in front of the beach having a drink, and I was talking to them about it, and about Ashcroft and Cache Creek, which are basically at the end of what we call the Fraser Canyon, it's one of only two deserts in Canada. Rattlesnakes, cacti, sagebrush, tumbleweeds, the whole deal. I have seen tumbleweeds rolling down the main drag in downtown Ashcroft. Actually a really pretty area, summer evenings are beautiful. I think it was hit pretty hard by the wildfires this year though. Until a few years ago, there was a drag strip in Ashcroft, in the nineties/early 2000nds, we used to run in CPSA heads up street car races there.
There's a turnoff towards Merritt close to Boston Bar through a town called Spences Bridge. As you leave town heading east towards Merritt, there's a big rock face on the north side of the road, in the summer, it reflects a LOT of heat. One time, I was driving through there with an ex gf on a camping trip, she was driving. All of a sudden I have this big brainstorm, and yell "pull over, I got an idea!" So we pull over, and I start hauling all this camping gear out of the back of the car, it's about 110f, and the sun is just baking down, she is looking at me like I have gone off my rocker. Finally I get to the cooler, tear it open and grab a raw egg. She still hasn't figured it out "what the hell are you doing?! Are you NUTS??" I'm "just wait, watch this, watch this!" Bust an egg on the road, and we are standing there, I'm shouting "LOOK! LOOK! It's turning WHITE! It's FRYING!"  ;D She just rolls her eyes and says "That's great, but if you think I am helping you load all this shit back in the car, you really ARE nuts!" ;D

Its funny how many guys that love old hot rods also love art deco, modernist and post-modernist architecture. Those movements didn't happen in isolation, they also had a big influence on automotive design, locomotives and toasters. ;D
