      While this might be Daytona- much of it looks like that, actually.

            Yeah, Lyon's was a moving company; big competition for Bekins down here in the Southland.

              The pic was taking just after installation of the big sign; the trucks belonged to the sign contractors. They were probably custom built utility bodies. I bet the M-truck had one, too, if we could see it.

              BTW, trivia: Oscar's was the San Diego predecessor to Jack In The Box. They started iin '49 and had a couple dozen drive-in/sit-down restaurants in San Diego and Los Angeles; they started Jack In The Box in 1951 as a cheap drive-through brand. Notice the clown-caricature chef on the Oscar's sign

                        • Regarding #2190; this is a great shot, typical of how a lot of city fire engines looked after 15-20 years of service. Note the equipment piled everywhere, and the general overloaded and tired look to the apparatus. Some of Seattle's 1920's era rigs (not Studes) were repowered, hydraulic brakes, bigger tires, radios and windshields added then used up into the 1950's.
