    I'm almost sure it's Wilshire Blvd. in L.A. where the Petersen Museum is today...it would be looking east, towards downtown L.A.

    The Ford Dealership.
    Judging by the Cars out front, I would guess 1949/50

    That's a 1947 Motorette!
    [​IMG]

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Introduced in 1947 the Motorette was manufactured by the Motorette Corp. of Buffalo, New York. (USA). The vehicles were primarily designed for use in a mile long aircraft plant but due to their practicality found many other useful roles. It is powered by a one-cylinder 4.1hp air-cooled engine that drives a single wheel that when fully laden will propel the vehicle at 39mph (though it does not have a speedometer) at up to 60 mpg. The body of the Motorette was all aluminum with a channel construction "X" frame chassis and steering is done by what can only be described as oval handlebars. A windscreen was an optional extra.[/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif][SIZE=-1]The Motorette came in a number of forms that included the Model 20 that was an all round vehicle that was a 2 seater with 6 cubic feet of luggage space and the Model 30 that was also a 2 seater with its luggage capacity increased to 10 cubic weight.[/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Famous owners of the Motorette include the American comedian Bob Hope who wanted "an extra "get-about car" where no car could go. [/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Sans-serif][SIZE=-1]Production of the Motorette is thought to have ceased in the early 1950s.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Looks like they are having a blast with it!
