Mike over at Franklin Avenue posted a piece on a converted drive-thru dairy now carpet shop and his hope for the survival of one of its attributes.  I too have been thinking about internal architectural conversions and marveling at what they say (or the story you can try to tell) about communities’ tastes and marketing in general.

Two of my favorite makeovers:


Taco Bell goes to Aloha Food Factory in Alhambra and Der Wienerschnitzel goes to Ceviche Loco in Bell.

Of course, there’s also the IHOP gone sushi on the Westside, Bob’s Big Boy now Noodle Planet in Alhambra, and Sizzler gone El Pescador in Highland Park, but I didn’t have time to get photos of those. Any you like?
