We have seen this fire before. I believe the Car Show was relocated to the Shrine Exhibition Hall, that we see in these photos. The trucks were eliminated due to lack of floor space and of course there were no custom cars as they had all burned to a crisp. A lot of nice cars went up in smoke that day. The city fathers considered an ordnance banning car shows in 'tents'. I second that motion.
