Here's an old drive-in/diner off San Fernando Rd. In the photo on the
left, you can see the Pink
Motel in the background.
The shot on the right displays the vintage 50's era interior.
Back when the adjoining cafe was still operating, this location, including
the adjacent Pink
Motel, had everything... gigantic swimming pool, classic diner with
old jukebox, candy machine, even a drive-in 'round back (see photo on
left). Now it's perfectly frozen in time, primarily used as a film location.
UPDATE 07/05 : The
pictures of "Cadillac Jacks" was not formerly Buddy's Diner it was the "Pink Cafe" same name as the "Pink Motel"
next door. They were both built in the late 40's by Joe Thomulka, who's
son Monty still owns and operates (the motel) today. Many
thanks to Tim Shpall for update. 07-05
Author's Note: The Pink Cafe was turned into Cadillac Jacks by Tim
Shpall along with Monty's help in 1990. 07-05
