    Murdocks bath house going under the waves one more time on Galveston Seawall in a storm surge. Finally broke up in Hurricane Ike, 2008. Always great to relive memories in this thread, thanks Hobot

    Very horrible, yes. But not unheard of. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/houston-elevator-death/

    Greeter's corner in Laguna Beach, California down in bottom right. Eiler used to stand there right by main beach and say hello to all the tourists. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eiler_Larsen My parents honeymooned at Hotel Laguna in early '60's. If you look closely in one of the windows, you can probably see me being conceived. My wife loved the hotel, very run down though, and last time we visited in 2017 power to whole building went out. Brought in generator at midnight, it wouldn't work because wiring in hotel had failed. Now closed undergoing massive renovation. Can't beat the location or views. More thanks for the memories Hobot
  7. Scorpion was for sale in MDR and just sold, I'd assume that is the one.

    My parents lived in same house they bought in 1963 (for $18000) in Palos Verdes. Dad used to say smoke came up from identical place in August, 1965.

LETTERMAN: — Paul Newman calls up and he says, "Dave," he says, "I'm thinking about getting me a Volvo station wagon, and I'm gonna stuff a Ford 302 V-8 engine into it."

    In half the population, it's correct 50% of the time. Some of these people are just bragging, sharing these X-rays...

    When my kids were growing up, we had one of those in the neighborhood, and it was an appropriate place to take them for the occasional dinner out. They came up with calling it the "Crap Shack", no idea where they heard that word. ; ) As always, Hobot, thanks for the intellectual challenge of places and events.
  14. Its a Chevy, probably the scrap value.
