I recently came across the following screen-grabs in a box of old CDs.

What's that little hut?


It turns out, the short 2:45 minute video was first posted by sopas_ej way back in 2012.

The one and only follow up post was GW's (below).

I noticed the "Wax Seal Co" sign near the beginning, which advertises a genuine Hollywood business...

Los Angeles Times, Dec 1, 1958

...but 1435 N. Highland Avenue is here.


So what is the building with the large Wax Seal Co. sign on it's roof?


And then there's this screen-grab from the same video (at 1.56)

Some commenters on YouTube think it's a Tucker, (below)


...while others think it's a 1949 Cadillac Fastback.


What do you guys think?

You can watch the video for yourself here:
