    Noticed this "La Cantina Bar" sign in the background of a photo from my hometown in 1955. The whole block is long gone.

    ⇧ The motel's branded station wagon takes it to a whole other level of awesomeness.

    This place is too freakin' good for words.

    It checks every box:
    1. Booze - Cocktail Lounge, check!
    2. Meals - Dining Room, check!
    3. Snacks - Coffee Shop, check!
    4. Activities - Pool & Beach, check!
    5. No true connection to the Space Race, but the impression that there is - Monster rocket on sign blasting off*, check!

    *No subliminal advertising here at all, nope, none.

    How the heck can there be vacancy?

    Last one - how cool is the two-tone paint on the wagon framed by the signposts.
