San Fernando Valley History/Culture Test

I was randomly browsing through the interweb when I found this great set of questions regarding San Fernando Valley History/Culture at the Competition Plus Forum (Drag Racing's Internet Magazine).

The following questions were posted by TopFuel@Lions:

Anything and everything about the San Fernando Valley. This blog will take you back in time when the valley was covered with dirt and orange groves to a leader in the space race to its current status as America's suburb. Come along and join me on this adventure, I guarantee you have been influenced/impacted by the San Fernando Valley in one form or another even if you have never visited or heard of the SFV.
