Last Sunday morning, the wife and I drove down to The Original House of Pancakes in Anaheim for breakfast.  Afterwards, we decided to take a look at downtown Anaheim and visit some of the old DKP "historical hot spots."  As we were looking around, I thought it might be fun to drive back home and get the bug and the camera and share some of the history with you guys...  I tried the black and white deal for the nostalgic look  Roll Eyes Grin

I didn't take this first pic, but it will give you a feel for downtown Anaheim in the early '60's.  The Pickwick on the right was our old meeting place.  It was established in 1929 and demolished in 1988.

This next shot is out in front of what used to be Select Auto Sales on Harbor Blvd.  We spent a lot of time parked here heckling passers by for race action.  Shocked Wink  The original Carl's restaurant was directly across the street and was the site of many fried chicken eating contests.  I think Don Crane held the record at 21 pieces  Roll Eyes

Around the corner from Select is La Palma Park.  Our first DKP car show was held there in the mid '60's.

Thanks, Sheep!  Heading south on Anaheim Blvd, the next stop is at the old site of The Warehouse which was the club's favorite watering hole.  The bar was about forty feet long and had a conveyor belt inside it with passing Playboy jokes attached to it and was lit up with Christmas bulbs  Cool Cool Cool!!  There were cool posters on every square inch of wall space.  Many a heated game of FosBall were played here, too!  Grin  Next door to The Warehouse is where it all began...the original location of Schneider Motors.  Mike Mahaffey spent all his spare time (and money!) here.  John Lazenby spent a lot of time here, too.  I got my first of many Porsche diaphram clutch jobs done here.  Cool

Heading south on Anaheim Blvd, just past the Pickwick, is the Anaheim Public Library.  In the summer, when it was too hot in the clubhouse, we'd have meetings outside on the lawn...a perfect place to harrass passing motorists for a little race... Grin

In this pic, I'm parked in front of what used to be the clubhouse...imagine two bugs, lined up in the opposite direction, blasting off down the street.  It happened MANY times  Shocked Wink

Is that the same Schneider Motors that was later located on Chapman in Orange??

Thanks Sarge for the history lessons. I just don't get enough of this stuff. Always facinated on how it was back then! The times I do talk to you I always ask you questions about that time of how it started. I think this is a good beginning of a book that should be published. Wink Grin
