  1. Actually the address of the car wash was 610 South Rampart, not 618 and it was called Robert Taylor's Car wash. Dee Luxe Car Wash was presumably a fictional name that was used for the movie.

    I looked in both a 1973 and

    1987 Los Angeles Reverse directories and it's consistent in both. Here is the URL. http://rescarta.lapl.org:8080/ResCarta-Web/jsp/RcWebImageViewer.jsp?doc_id=Los+Angeles+Street+Address+Directories

  2. Thank you so much for this! This is so fascinating, and I love this movie. I live about eight hours away from Los Angeles, and I will definitely have to take a road trip to visit this intersection :-)

  5. Day by day things are getting changed so as the places and infrastructure also. I had heard a lot about the Dee-Luxe Car Wash, LA and I was willing to go there once at least but mu bad luck that it's no longer exist. The buildings are still the same but lots of things have been changed. Well, it's a great collective photo you have added here. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  11. I have watched this movie several times, as I love the music and the story. I started looking for information on what might have become of the Deluxe Car Wash, and found this site. Thanks for the hard work on this; I was using Google Maps to locate the original location of the car wash, but as you say, it no longer exists. I was pretty sure that would be the case, so I was happy to find pictures of the site where it had been. I was also wondering if the Dog House ever was there, or if it was just "built" for the movie. Thanks again.
