California Destination: A Glimpse of History at the Valley Relics Museum

VAN NUYS, California (KTLA) – You’re looking at history – the history of the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, kept and taught here at the Valley Relics Museum in Van Nuys, California.

The iconic Volkswagen bus from Universal Pictures’ coming-of-age comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” from the 1980s with Sean Penn as stoner student Jeff Spicoli is here … disco ball and everything!

Also amazing – the 1964 Pontiac Bonneville Safari Wagon of the “Rodeo Tailor to the Stars”.

Nudie Cohn’s bespoke outfits for everyone from the singing cowboy Gene Autrey to the famous Elvis Presley’s golden lame outfit are here.

By the way, when Presley was in town, Presley jammed with country music performers at the Palomino Club, considered the premier West Coast country music club that is long gone.
