IN-N-OUT BURGER STAND REPLICA, BALDWIN PARK, SOCAL, 2014
It’s official!!! A replica 1948 In-N-Out Burger drive-thru stand nears completion at its original location in Baldwin Park, SoCal!!! It’s a mid-century modern miracle.
This precious, pint-sized drive-thru hamburger stand is more than architecture, it’s CARchitecture! It’s an icon of American car culture and, for that matter, pop culture too!
Oddly, the fine folks at In-N-Out corporate are very vague about a grand opening ceremony date or any info about it. It is a mystery! According to a company spokesperson on a Huell Howser show taped in 2010, (before construction began), this won’t be a functioning stand but a place where fans can drive their cars thru and take pix.
So we’ll have to wait and see what happens. A Double-Double sure sounds good right now!
Here’s to In-N-Out, CARchitecture and YOU!
