  • Searching for a good mechanic in the Glendale/Burbank area (N. Los Angeles)

    Just moved back to Los Angeles and I’m searching for a good general mechanic for my 1961 Lark Station Wagon. Does anyone have any recommendations or know who I should contact?

    thanks!,
    Albert

        Is Santa Clarita the town that a Japanese submarine lobbed a few shells into in early 1942? Or am I thinking of a different town?

          I don't know for sure if that was Santa Clarita, but that is pretty far inland, they would have to have Serious Range!
          Plus, they would miss L.A. by quite a bit!

            Apparently it was Ellwood and not Santa Clarita.

              It’s in Oregon. Only place in the US that has been shelled as far as I know.

                Oregon was bombed from an airplane that was transported close to the coast in a submarine. It was not shelled from a submarine.

                There were also balloons launched from Japanese soil to travel on high winds and bomb Oregon.

                The shelling from a submarine was a refinery in Elwood.

                    Bandon Oregon was a place where they had serious beach patrols and look out.

                      Orange County Studebaker in Placentia is a little hike but is a good option if you need parts and service
                      Cheers,
