This is one of my favorite photos of the Larry Watson Personal Collection. The brilliant and creative colors on the cars in the photo, the way they are parked, its all so great and makes me want to go back in time and be able to walk around Larry's Rosecrans Blvd shop in the late 1950's. In this photo we can see the bright candy root beer Gull-wing Mercedes owned by TV and film producer Jack Laird. A candy plum painted 1955 Chevy, Dave Kyte chopped multi colored 1955 Mercury, Jack Van Tassels Pearl lime 1957 Pontiac, and an unidentified Candy dark red 1957 Ford parked in front of Larrys shop. As can be seen in this photo the parking space at this shop was perfect for a small colorful Custom Car show. The Peanut House in the background, was a bar were they served a big bowl of Peanuts with the order and the floor was covered with peanut shells, hence the name.
