California Crazy and Beyond: Roadside Vernacular Architecture
In 1980, Los Angeles historian Jim Heimann wrote a book about the oddball roadside architecture that has dotted the American landscape since the advent of the auto. Published by Chronicle Books as California Crazy, it stayed in print for nearly 20 years. Finally, here is the greatly expanded new edition of that sought-after classic. California Crazy and Beyond is packed with madcap restaurants, motels, service stations, and many other businesses shaped like hot dogs, animals, airplanes, pianos, and other architectural anomalies. Over the years, Heimann's continued research has uncovered a multitude of new pictures and forgotten buildings. With over 380 photographs and an illuminating text that tracks the subject well beyond the bounds of the West Coast, California Crazy and Beyond is an authoritative document of a style born in America and spread to all corners of the world.

Review: California Crazy and Beyond: Roadside Vernacular ArchitectureUser Review - Goodreads
The definitive book on roadside vernacular architecture. Read this at LMU in the summer of 1998. Everyone who is inclined to slug through "Learning from Las Vegas" should just read this instead.
