  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.

    1. I'd like to know about the "Dog House" myself. It certainly was a great name, so I kinda hope it was. It's no longer there, so I guess it's all moot at this point.

  14. I noticed in the final credits that there was a fellow by the name of Al Stellone credited as the owner of the red Oldsmobile seen in the movie. Does anyone know who he was? Did he have some connection with the making of the movie, as there is no mention or scene of anyone driving the Olds, although it did get moved from its spot at the beginning of the movie to another part of the parking lot.

  15. I've lost count of how many times I've watched this movie. It is my opinion that the "Dog House" was an original establishment, and not built for the movie. The shots at the beginning of the movie where the camera zooms into the lot where the car wash and the Dog House are located clearly show wear on the roof of the Dog House and other signs of distress. This is just a guess on my part of course, but unless someone who actually lived in the area around the time this movie was made can say yes or no to this, it's my best guess.

  16. The main reason that used Jeep Cherokees tend to be less expensive than other used midsized SUVs comes down to the simple principle of supply and demand.more info here
