In 1966 Larry moved to Mexico to pursue an acting career with his wife, leaving behind a big gap in the market. While he was away, two "Watson" paint shops sprung up in the area offering custom paint jobs to teenagers that didn't know better. One of the shops, Watson's Custom Kars was located in Downey. The other one, Watson's was located in Van Nuys on Burbank Blvd. Late in 1966 Larry returned to California to open up a new shop in Bellflower. Back in business, he made flyers that contained an important notice about the imposters that had been using his name while he was away. Scan courtesy of Von Franco.
