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.
