Great stuff.

As a genealogist I like these kind of pictures where you see the past alongside the present

I am TOTALLY fascinated with this subject of finding Elvis' old haunts! I hope people in America, like KHoots, has the same passion, because once it gets pulled down, then that is it my good friend! Cheers!

I definitely have a passion for that kind of thing, too. I have plenty of shots of empty parking lots, fields and those kinds of former Elvis haunts. Yeah, it's strange, but hey, it's what I do.

I too love to see "then and now" pictures.

Thanks for sharing!

I'll second that Funkman.
Very interesting stuff.

I used to live just a few minutes from the area where they filmed much of Roustabout in Thousand Oaks California. I'd often drive my car or motorcycle through the exact spot where Elvis was run off the road on his motorcycle, and kick back on a lazy day just a few hundred yards away from there in the fields where they filmed the carnival scenes. It's a beautiful area and has been used for hundreds of films, photo shoots and commercials.

John B, fascinating stuff! Had you told us about that before? It's weird you should mention this, as I was sitting down at our local cafe this morning thinking about this guy telling us about that on a message board! Was that you who told us about that years ago? Anyway, like I said, fascinating stuff! Can you upload images if you have any! Cheers!

Mon Mar 19, 2007 5:48 am

hi funkyangel, I may have mentioned here it a loooooong time ago, can't remember, lol. Somewhere I think I do still have some pics taken in that area. I'll try and round them up and post them.

If you're ever in the Los Angeles area, Thousand Oaks is only a 45 minute or so drive to the north (depending on traffic of course).

Now I live in Las Vegas and sadly, most of the locations used in Elvis's movies filmed here are either gone or have changed to the point where you wouldn't recognize it anyways. It is really cool however to go into the showroom at the Hilton and remember all the Elvis history that has taken place in there. I went in again about a week ago and it still gives me goosebumps.

By the way, thanks for starting this interesting topic, I enjoy reading up about these things too. :)

Movie buffs, read all about the 1967 Orange Bowl International Power Boat Regatta. This is where they filmed scenes for Presley' twenty fifth film, 'Clambake'! http://www.vintagehydroplanes.com/reg_67orangebowl.html

This is where MGM filmed the Charlotte 500. It use to be called the Charlotte Speedway but now it's named Lowes Motor Speedway! http://www.lowesmotorspeedway.com/handl ... sf_id=4284
