Cool planter trucks, Dave. Even women would like those...although maybe not in the yard.

Ray; when your comment hit my email I was afraid you mean the outhouse. :o

I had to go back and edit my reply, just to make sure everyone knew it was the diner, I had rootbeer in.

It is a fantastic little diner.

Isn't it interesting that sometimes you look at a picture and you think of building the model (a replica of the vehicle) and yet other pictures you see the vehicle and its surrounding and you see DIORAMA written all over the picture.

Speaking of Diorama possibilities, I was in Sacramento a couple months ago and had time to stop by Sacramento Vintage Ford (they sell vintage Ford parts) and this scene in their showroom really lends itself to a scale diorama!

They also have this "Refreshment Area" to entice customers to hang out while deciding what to buy, another Diorama inspiration...

Their showroom is very cool, look through my album to see the rest and if you're ever in Sacramento it's worth an hour to browse through there!

My Dad would have loved the trucks with the flowers growing in them.

This is what he did when I left my Camaro SS RS for too long in his driveway...

Our other claim... "Jumanji". They spent several days filming in and around the area. IIRC, about 7 minutes of it made it in the film.
The Chevy was there, the crush was done via hydraulics, I believe. Elephant? All cgi.

All that remains of the movie, is this "vintage" wall sign.
