Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph caption dated August 19, 1954 reads "Favorite hang-out. Wheel out to Bob's or one of other drive-ins that dot San Fernando Valley some Saturday p.m. You'll see hot rods, hot rods and still more hot rods. And don't be misled by conventional exteriors. Many with prosaic, even downright conservative bodies belong to legion of hopped-up 'deceptors.' Above, Quirk finds solution to dating without leaving his first love--a hot roadster." Bill Quirk is a member of the Luggers Car Club of North Hollywood.; See images #00140018 through #00140021 for all photos in this series.
