According to the 1939 Los Angeles phone book, the Silver Lake Auto Court was at 2500 Glendale Blvd (NOrmandy 9245.) Scott's mother might have found her car right down the road at 2383 Glendale Blvd--Silver Lake Used Cars was there (MOrningside 1-0936).

Yep, Mom's car was a 1936 Pontiac alright! I'm no expert, but based upon what info I've been able to find online, I think it was a '36 Pontiac "Master Six Coupe."
