The Los Angeles County Office of Education had warned a year earlier that the district might be dissolved if it did not find a way to solve its problems. But a land developer, Centennial Founders (Centennial, California), in the meantime stepped forth with the desire to save the school district until it could build a proposed 23,000-home planned city east of Interstate 5 on Tejon Ranch property along Highway 138.

One was a woman who was killed by a collapsing adobe house at Reed's Ranch (Gorman (Gorman, California)), very close to the fault, and an elderly man fell dead in a plaza in the Los Angeles area. Most of the buildings at Fort Tejon were badly damaged and several people were injured. Some buildings in Los Angeles were cracked but no major damage was reported. In Ventura (Ventura, California) the roof of Mission San Buenaventura fell in and the bell tower was damaged. Ground cracks from liquefaction (soil liquefaction) of swampy ground were observed in Los Angeles and near Oxnard.

Thus the song explains how in "Hot Rod Race" a kid in a Model A could have outrun late-model Ford and Mercury sedans. Ryan actually raced his hot rod against a Cadillac sedan driven by a friend in Lewiston, Idaho, driving up the Spiral Highway (former U.S. 95 (U.S. Route 95 in Idaho)) to the top of Lewiston Hill. His song, however, keeps the same location as "Hot Rod Race", namely the Grapevine Hill, which is an old-time local southern California nickname for the long, nearly straight grade up Grapevine Canyon to Tejon Pass, near the town of Gorman, California, just south of Bakersfield (Bakersfield, California).
