Here's a little relic that won't be around long. It's been 42 years since a Studebaker rolled off the line. Yet, almost right across the street from the convention center - and just a block or two from the Staples Center -is this old ghost ad on the side of a building which still seems to function somewhat as a Ford dealership.
So far it's survived the fevered downtown rip-it-up-and-build-condos activity, but who knows how long that can last.
