Rusnak Porsche Pasadena and Westlake revealed the all 2015 Porsche Macan at Union Station located at 800 North Alameda Street in Downtown Los Angeles, California to over 900 Rusnak clients.
Los Angeles Union Station opened its doors in May 1939 and was the last grand railroad station built. It is a unique mix of Art Deco and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in design. In 1980, L.A. Union Station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, L.A. Union Station is a busy rail hub with travelers from Metro, Amtrak and Metrolink trains boarding trains daily. More than 97,000 rail passengers travel through L.A. Union Station each weekday. This historic event will bring attendees from all over Southern California to celebrate the past, present and future of this beloved icon.
Celebrating Union Station 75th anniversary, Rusnak invited Christian Perry’s Havin’ A Ball Dancers to ‘swing’ our guests into the relevant year. Over 30 “flash mob’ waiters surprised everyone as cigarette girls passed out chocolates to all.
