When I first arrived in Long Beach on 'vacation' I worked for Shadow Ford (Roger Chastain) at the intersection of Hill and Cherry.
That is a BIG hill, still is even in a car.
The Forever 4 Ford model A's used to hill climb it too IIRC.
When I had a used car lot in Long Beach 1111 E. Anaheim, I used to demo my Jeep 4X4's around Signal Hill, that was early 80's, most of the tracks were even gone then, you had to be inventive.
