This photo of the Tower Records store in SF was included in the documentary "All Things Must Pass" (no connection to George Harrison's album, other than the title) and I was surprised to see an MGA prominently displayed: I wonder if the owner of the car took the photo, maybe they worked there. The store opened in 1968, and the photo itself is undated, but since it's in B&W, I suspect it's from the late 60's. Its a bit ironic that both the store and the MG brand are no longer around (yes I know the Chinese make what they call an MG).

OK, now I think its actually an AH 3000??

Nick ... now that picture of the Tower Record store takes me back. I lived in Sausalito in the early 70's. I shopped that store for music. I remember hopping in my 70 MGB/GT on the weekend and running over to SF to Tower to buy albums for $3 each.

I would go to the Tower Greenwich Village store (the Village was a very different world back them). The documentary about Tower Records is running on a variety of cable stations and is probably available on a number of streaming channels; its a fascinating look back to a different era that was not that long ago.

Pretty sure that’s the Tower Records on Sunset Bl. In Hollywood. Used to go there.
