Replica LARy Car at Griffith Park, August 1973
Here’s an oddball shot – a replica Los Angeles Railway open streetcar running at Travel Town in Griffith Park in August of 1973. Taken by Ed Sikora, this image has it all – classic 1970s fashions, what passes for decent air quality (note the mountains actually visible on an August day!), and classic 35mm Kodachrome color.
From transit historian Ralph Cantos comes this additional bit of information:
The car was “home built” and featured a Chevrolet Corvair air-cooled gasoline motor.
Know anything more about this car, its builder, or its present-day whereabouts? Let us know in the comments!
