‘RAINBOW GAS STATION’
This ‘Red Crown’ gas station was first opened for business in 1921 as “Rainbow
Services” situated on now ‘Old 395’. In those days it was a four-hour trip to Los
Angeles, continuing as a major route through Central California, north to Oregon.
“Rainbow Services” basic building design is the same today as it was 83-years ago,
and was more than a gas station; it provided full automobile services, to include
food and drink.
The station still stands today, serving as a real estate office. It was declared a
County historic site in 1988, due to the efforts of the former owner Christopher
Duarte.
To see this station, it is located in Rainbow, off of ‘Old 395’, approximately one-
mile on Rainbow Valley Boulevard.

Grandma’s House – The Elder House

The building that was Grandma’s House was built in 1884 by Elmore Shipley. It was originally between Vine and Orange Streets on East Mission and was later moved to the corner of Elder St. and Main Ave. by Victor Westfall. According to a story recorded by Maie Ellis, of the early Ellis Hotel family and also published in the Village News on November 5, 1998, the home was part of a good-hearted building contest between three friends who wanted to see which of them could build the best and most attractive home for no more than $3,000.

The Elder House, as it is known today, is one of the oldest buildings in town and it has been a family home, a rental property, housed two schools, a popular restaurant called Grandma’s House as featured on the poster, and is currently home of the Village News newspaper.

RAINBOW OAKS RESTAURANT

The 45th annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show poster for 2010 features the Rainbow Oaks restaurant just off 1-15 in Fallbrook, Rainbow. It was chosen because of its rustic appearance and unique history.

No one knows for certain when the restaurant was originally built, but most natives estimate it was in the early 1950’s.

Following the devastating Rice Canyon fire in October 2007, the restaurant closed for a period of several months.

The present operator, Duke Maples, noticed the closed restaurant on his daily commute from Corona to San Diego where he was working as the Manager of Food and Beverage at the Marriott. He took an interest in it, and discussed with his wife, Jonell, the prospect of opening it again. When she first saw the building she told her agent they wanted it – even before she entered the old building. She and Duke signed a lease with the owner and began a partial tear-down in August 2008. The renovation was complete and the restaurant re-opened on April 2, 2009. The sugar pine, ponderosa, black oak and cedar wood that fill the entire restaurant was reclaimed from the local mountains after the fires.

Today the restaurant is a favorite gathering spot for motorcycle riders, car club members, and the general public who go there for the excellent food and company. Flags proudly flown on the building are the USA, USMC and MIA/POW.

Featured vintage vehicles on this year’s poster (left to right) are:

Whit and Lee Anne Whittinghill – 1959 Corvette roadster
DuMonte and Joan Voigt – 1956 Chevrolet 210 hardtop
Dave and Dawn Dressen -1932 Ford 3-window coupe
Michael Mroz -1940 GMC mini-dump truck

OLD FALLBROOK HIGH SCHOOL
1912-1956

It looks as if “Happy Days” are here again in artist David Thompson’s recreation of Fallbrook High School, circa 1956. Overcrowding ultimately forced the high school to move to a new location and the old high school found new life for a short time as Potter Junior High School.

Today the former high school campus is home to the Fallbrook Elementary School District offices and the Fallbrook Boys and Girls Club. During the high schools active years as an educational facility it also served as a town hall for the entire Fallbrook Community.

The vintage automobiles featured on this year’s poster are reminiscent of the final year the high school used this site. Vehicles and owners are as follows:

front row, left to right; 1956 Chevrolet 2-dr hardtop, John “JJ” Snyder
1957 Ford Thunderbird, Lydia Rossi
middle row, left to right; 1952 Glockler Porsche, Michael Mroz
1955 Chevrolet 2-dr hardtop, Brad LeMoine
1950 Ford Tudor, David Bergeson
back row, left to right; 1923 Ford T-Bucket, Jim Whitlock
1929 Ford Model A Pickup, Jan Plischke

FVCC members on the poster are Brad and Suzanne LeMoine, Lydia Rossi, Michael Mroz, John Snyder, David Bergeson, Jan Plischke.
Also on the poster is Jim Whitlock, Fallbrook Union Elementary School District Assistant Supt. of Personnel and members of the current Fallbrook High School Associated Student Body (ASB).

David Thompson, a relative newcomer to Fallbrook, has a commercial art and graphic design business using computers and image-editing applications to generate the unique illustrations and portraits of people, pets, architecture and cars. David was thrilled to be given the opportunity to create the poster art for the 44th Annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show, a tribute to the kids and cars of the 1950’s shown in front of the old Fallbrook High School.
