They gladly lap up garbage from Hollywood, produced by their Jewish overlords, which tells them they suck and that they owe non-Whites and Jews everything.

What a spineless and PATHETIC bunch Whites are, especially in California. But hey, this is just an Internet posting, it's not reality. Just go back to your TV and your ball games and your malls and your worthless dollar and your false reality as your children's future slips away. Don't let me bother you. And definitely do not visit sites like stormfront or natall.

Your next stop.....The Twilight Zone!!

Some other stores...

-Best in Culver City. On Jefferson near the 405. I think they closed in the late 80's, early 90's.

-Lots of video stores. 20/20, Movies and More.

-Lots of bookstores. That was kind of a craze in the 90's, mid 90's. Bookstar in Culver City, between the Target and Toys R Us.

-The drive in theater in Culver City! That was there in the mid to late 80's, seems hard to believe now. Wasn't that the last drive in theater in west la? Or one of the last. You could see the screen from the street. And down the street was Bobs Big Boy.

-McDonalds, when they use to do birthday parties.

People protested because the character was "little black Sambo" and they got accused of being racist. As a kid, I just thought it was sort of a "jungle book" theme....
They had a "bottomless" 10 cent cup of coffee!

Smile Independence Hall

The building across the street from Knotts Berry Farm was Independence Hall. It was a replica of the real one in Philadelphia.

Smile Sambos

There used to be a Sambos on the border of Whittier and La Habra on Whittier Blvd off of Beach Blvd until the 1980's. Then, it was Baker's Square in the 90's. Now, it is Lascari's.

I remember Pup 'n' Taco in the 70's and early 80's. There was one in La Mirada across the street from Taco Bell. They were rivals. Incidentally, the Pup 'n" Taco closed and a new Taco Bell was built there. Across the street, the old Taco Bell became a Chinese fast food restaurant. Later, a Auto Supply store or something similar. Taco Bell bought out all of the Pup 'n' Tacos.

Smile Bob's Big Boy

There is a Bob's Big Boy on Wilshire in Los Angeles. There was one at the Los Angeles Mall. But, it closed. There was 2 in Whittier. The one on Whittier Blvd. was huge. They had their training center downstairs. The property was sold and redeveloped into a strip mall. The one in uptown Whittier across the street from Whittier College closed and became the "California Grill". There is a Bob's Big Boy in Diamond Bar off of the 57 freeway.
