Bob's Big Boy Matchbook Cover - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Gary Fredburg - 2008
Bob's Big Boy Restaurants in Burbank, Van Nuys, Glendale and Canoga Park were essential elements of teen-age life in the San Fernando Valley in the 1950s and '60s. In 1993 Bob's on Van Nuys Boulevard was demolished marking an end to the great cruising adventure of decades.
Gary Fredburg, vice president of your Museum, calls attention to the story in today's Daily News (March 27, 2008) entitled "Hot Cars, Double Deckers Top Bob's Big Boy Menu". A Burbank resident and car lover, Gary believes that automobiles and coffee shops are important part of San Fernando Valley history and culture.
