You guys may know better but I think Cliff Henderson and E.L. had some sort of partnership in the Pan Pacific that was near the LA ACD dealership showrooms where the Cord debuted in 1935? Here is a picture noted, Crowds arrive for the silver jubilee auto show, held in October 1937 at the Pan-Pacific Auditorium.

If you were standing on the curb front of the ACD dealership on Wilshire looking south across the street you would see this view of the famous Ambassador Hotel.

What a great interesting story. I have been to these locations but had no idea what they were part of. Now I understand why I felt being drawn to the Brown Derby and the ACD building. Funny how that works. Thanks for all this great history of old L.A.
