Slauson Car Wash

If only to show that I'm still around, here's a nice 'drive-by' shot of the Slauson Car Wash at 3615 West Slauson Avenue, Los Angeles:

The Slauson is just one of many fantastic 50's/60's style car washes scattered throughout the LA region.

I passed by after a stop at Simply Wholesome, which is housed in the former Googie landmark 'The Wich Stand' coffee shop & lounge.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll try to be back with a real post in the near future...

Glad to see some new posts. :)
When I was a kid (1970s) those deliciously gaudy car washes graced every main road.
Now they've mostly been torn down or remolded. I'm glad some are still in good shape.

Hi Walter, glad you're back. I check every so often. Hope you are well.

There were splendid examples of similar buildings in both Fresno and Visalia. All gone now of course.

I'm glad you are still around, too - I hadn't checked in with you for such a long time that I didn't know! Hoping for more (frequent) posts in the future- 'cause I love 'em!
