    On December 12, 1948, the first McDonald’s restaurant opened at 14th and E Street in San Bernardino CA., which sold 15¢ burgers and 10¢ fries using a “Speedee Service System.”

    Can't find a photo, But the one in the sixties was right across the street from the original. It was a Major turn around spot for cruising E. What can you share about E St. in San Berdoo?

    By 1965 the original McDonalds on E St. was sold, and a newer McDonalds had been built
    across the street (on the south side of E.). On the corner to the north was a Speed Shop, (which later turned into a headshop). nwbhotrod did you cruise on E St. in the sixties? Just curious because of your request for a '65 photo.????

    Hell Yeah! The Springs Rocked!
    I moved to Yucaipa after I got out of the service in '75, and lived there until the big move all the way to Calimesa in '94...:D

    To me it looks like an English Ford Anglia -- I bought a red one in 1960. (They race them in England now.)

    Excellent post, I was going to suggest the same thing! That song is a mini-history of McD's and a great take on Ray Kroc.

    Nah, Mk2 Zephyr, owned them in the past.

    Still have an Anglia - they're smaller and have a cut-back rear window.

    Nice shot but it's from 1959 (or possibly '62) - note the Chrysler's a '58, and there's a '59 Plymouth and '59 Rambler wagon on the right. The registration sticker on the Chrysler is white, a color only used in '59 and '62 in that series.
