    That's actually a 500. It came first. The Daytona was an evolution of the 500.

    Just an interesting historical automotive factoid. Don't feel bad bud. There's plenty of things that I don't know that are likely common knowledge to you.

    Good time to post these again. The Hamburger Handout was in Culver City, CA., and the 50's was it's heyday. Gone in the early 60's for development, a hotel now sits on the property. Along with Hamburger Handout, there was also a pizza joint, an ice cream / malt shop and a steak house on the same plot of land, the collection called 'Airport Village', being about 2 miles north of LAX, and practically next door to Hughes Aircraft and their runway.

    Looks like Hughes Aircraft made up a huge part of their business. Interestingly, there's no "Hamburger Handout" Wiki page, even though it's pretty common nowadays for local places to have one.
