There are 15 California State Historic Landmarks in
; this is an imaginary eastbound tour in song, as they would appear through the valley. Though I've attempted to be historically accurate in researched detail with these songs, occasionally imagination takes over in an attempt to bring these places and events to life. Imperial County

The DeSoto is done, dealt to a doof in
It is the 1951 Cadillac Series 62 four door sedan. Dawn of the one piece windshield, 126 inch wheelbase fronted with Dagmar bumpers, and with something like 1000 ft.lb. of torque, it rolls past the
Salton Sea. For the Korean effort, Cadillac, using these parts, and throwing on some armor and treads built the M-41Walker Bulldog light tank.
This car was originally black but received a new two tone paint scheme of International Harvester grey and FedEx white…..chosen for a perkier but understated look. Mmmm…she rides nice, and things like potholes dips, and speed bumps are seen and passed over, but not heard or felt in this ‘Body by Fisher’ masterpiece.
Let’s hop in the Caddy and get started.
