L.A. Suburbs in the Summer of 1949

L.A. Suburbs in the Summer of 1949

So are you ready for another great step back in time? Today’s film was shot in Sherman Oaks right around 1949, and it is a winner- Packed with so many great cars throughout the film, so I know you’ll enjoy this one. Some of my favorites are the 1937 Ford jalopy coupe right at the beginning, the mystery 3 window coupes at 1:30 and 6:23, and the cool travel trailer at 3:25. Now, the second half of the video is primarily shot of all the unique houses, rather than cars on the street, when all of a sudden… Bam! Is that ’32 Five Window coupe hot rod? Yup…

Southern California in the late 40s and early 50s. Could there have been a better time and place to be a young hot rodder?
