    That emblem looks more vertical than horizontal, the picture at the top of this post looks very different.
    Also, looking at that ‘60 Australian Pontiac it must be on a Chevrolet frame, the wheels are deep in the fender wells, Pontiacs of that era were “Wide Track”. Did they put 389’s in Chevy frames for export?

    One thing that always amazed me when visiting there, was the big ball that swung back & forth knocking wood pegs over as the earth rotated.

    All these great pictures, but none of the true landmark... the Brew 102 building right off of the freeway.

    Definitely Mays. But could that be George Robson in the other #1? Maybe in 1946 at Langhorne?

    In replying to a thread on Fordbarn I came across these detail pics of the 1935 Miller/Ford Indy cars. I'd never seen these before either. I had read that the steering box seized up, but didn't realise it was not a conventional ford type steering box.

    How about this?

    Here you can see the unusual (and problematical) steering setup:

    I love detailed technical shots like these.

    Hey S,
    @Mark Hinds posted this great photo back in 2018. It was right near downtown LA and seen by 1000s of people driving by at all hours of the day.

    Hey Mark,
    Is that the old Brew 102 factory, near the Union Station in Los Angeles? Wow, an old photo. My dad worked near there, near the city hall from 1950 to 1982. We drove by that place often.

    Jnaki

    "More than 100 beers we did brew,
    Perfecting the new finer Brew 102.
    In the East and the West,
    Maier Beer is the best.
    Wonderful, wonderful Brew 102."

    "In 1972, the suds of Brew 102 stopped flowing in Los Angeles. The old brewery closed; 102 was made in Tumwater, Wash. The huge copper kettles from the city's oldest brewery -- kettles the employees used to fill with water and swim in when the week's batch of beer was done -- were abandoned. The building became an unofficial refuge for the homeless for 13 years. The pots and kettles that were not stolen were sold for scrap before the buildings were torn down in 1985 for a parking lot."

  16. I remember the old 102 brewery well. Brew 102 was the first beer I ever had. I had driven by the place so many times while it was still there. It was sad to see it get torn down. I still have an old tin can of the brew and it hasn't leaked. I think "6 for 99 cents" is on the can. My dad used to buy the beer right from the brewery. He said the ones he got were at a discount because they were not totally full or something like that.
     
  17. This one can't be unseen. :eek:
