I am uploading a photo of the fire that destoyed this beautiful wood-construction Art Deco building. Although it had fallen into bad decay, its destruction remains a great cultural loss.

When I see those (pre-fire) horizontal lines of windows and trim, what I think of is, "CORD!"

Because the Pan-Pacific building was used in the 1980 movie Xanadu you can Google "Xanadu building" to get more info on the two fires that destroyed it and what has become of the site since then.

That would be one of the legendary Brown Derby restaurants.

This market was not to far from the dealership in that timeframe. There is a sedan that may have been serviced at that dealership.

Dealer closing so AUBURN letters have been removed from the towers and all that remains is KFAC. AC for Auburn Cord. The palms have grown above the roof line. Directly across Wilshire was the Ambassador Hotel where Robert Kennedy was slain.
