Party With Me, Punker At the Astor Classics Event Center

Art Astor may have made his bones peddling soft rock to the 909, but let's not hold that against him (too much, anyway), because he's sunk some cash into the Astor Classics Event Center in Anaheim. The facility houses his collection of cars, as well as vintage telephones, radios, and well as the website eloquently… » 12/29/05 12:36pm 12/29/05 12:36pm
