The Rockford Files - Episode: The Battle of Canoga Park (1977) Reidy's Ready Service Gas Station


The above image shows Jim Rockford driving Rocky's pick-up truck to Reidy's Ready Service. The store "Production Machinery" can be seen just across the street from Reidy's Ready Service. The store sign shows the phone number as VI9-3206.  The store is no longer present at 2815 West Burbank Blvd in Burbank, CA but as shown in the image below, the building that once housed "Production Machinery" is still there.
The title of this episode is "The Battle of Canoga Park" but it was actually filmed in Burbank CA and not Canoga Park.



The above image shows Jim Rockford pulling into the Reidy's Ready Service lot located at 2900 Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA. The name Reidy's was fictitious for the filming of this episode but it was an actual gas station and service center.
