Valley Relics

1962 Cadillac Coup De Ville, crossing the pass in mint condition.

1960s-era garden apartment complex, Panorama. Flat roof.  No A/C. Hard to believe this got permitted, but there are many such buildings around the Valley. Back then developers could get away with a lot.

Now we have cardboard windows and teetering wall units to look at.  What did people do before this?   Swelter through the dinner hour and daydream of Cadillacs.

One thought on “Valley Relics”

  1. I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
    I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
    And I’m not proud of my address, in the torn up town
    No post code envy
    But every song’s like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
    Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room
    We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
    But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
    Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
    We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair…..
