Ahh, the K-Cars lot on Santa Monica… After it closed some nice pieces popped up that we posted here, like this one:

They got painted over and were replaced by these:

Now these are gone too. These shots were taken a few months ago. Last time I drove past the lot it was barren – no art, which I'm sure made someone happy. The lot was still empty, looked awful, the old abandoned music store that was next to it was falling down as well.

(Again, taken several months ago)

I don't even think the rabbit survived the latest scrubbing.
