This was a fun place. It was out in the middle of nowhere. Because of the TV show, Airwolf, I started college at San Bernardino Valley College with a major in Aeronautics. Later, I went to the big Pacific drive-in, the Baseline. A lot of good times running that projection room.

Here is a 1959 aerial photo. At that time Fontana was more agricultural than commercial, judging by the adjacent properties:
