Baby, you can drive my car

For the past few months, the mayor of Richmond has been trying to track down the house where Owsley Stanley — California’s “King of Acid” — ran an LSD lab back in the sixties. In this final episode of a three-part series on the mayor’s search, reporter Cat Schuknecht catches up with an anonymous source, an antiques collector, and Owsley’s own son.

 

Design historian Steve Cabella found Owsley's 1949 Studebaker pickup truck in the Berkeley hills. Could the truck hold a clue?
