Spending a 2-weeks driving-around vacation with my wife in California we just passed by Santa Ana that has at least 2 places relevant to COX history. (This is my solo "the world's smallest traveling engine" project embedded in our vacation. We have gone and will still go to many places of interest here  of which the Santa Ana locations are important stops of my itinerary.)


1. 730 Poinsettia Ave., Santa Ana, where COX had its production in the period 1946 - 1963 in these 2 military Quonset huts:

I also pose here with my traveling COX TD010

2. 1505 East Warner Ave, some 6 miles from Poinsettia. When production demand grew and larger facilities were necessary, COX moved here in 1963. Needless to say this plant is very large compared to the old Poinsettia one and operates as a Social Services Agency of Orange County today.

I visited here 5 years ago:

and was happy to return today bringing the COX TD010 back to where it was born 40+ years ago:

I must admit I felt a kind of envy when visiting these COX production places because history and geography simply kept me far away ,  in another part of the world, when COX enjoyed its heyday and these places were alive with the production of this important object of our hobby.
