San Luis Rey Auto Salvage & Towing - Oceanside, CA, USA

Late on the night of Wednesday, October 5, 2011 much of the building housing San Luis Rey Auto Salvage & Towing was destroyed by fire.  Firefighters were able to save the office area where computers and files were located.  This longtime Oceanside business, family owned and operated since 1971, remains open and is operating out of an office trailer on the property.  The owners plan to rebuild.

Located at 475 North El Camino Real in the San Luis Rey Valley.

Addendum June 7, 2012:  The old building was demolished the last week of March 2012 to make way for reconstruction.

  1. I knew a man who worked there back in the 1990s. Once he mentioned that one of the old pepper trees near the shop was used for a public hanging, presumably in the 19th or early 20th century. I'm not sure where he got this information or if it can be confirmed, but it was interesting nonetheless.
