Chris:

Was the Tom Hanks film "That Thing You Do" patially filmed at the coffee shop and entry to the Ambassador or a facimile of it? I would swear that it was the same space and floral wallpaper as in the movie "Bobby."

I do believe that you were very close to my neck of the woods! I believe that is the car wash on Shawnee Mission Parkway near the Ramada and just down the road a ways from me.

I bank at Cap Fed although not in Lawrence. Cap Fed has many cool mid-century locations all ove the state.
