Tom Waits worked the graveyard shift here in the mid-sixties when he was fourteen. In the song "The Ghosts of Saturday Night (After Hours at Napoleone's Pizza House)" he sings "And the early dawn cracks out a carpet of diamond across a cash crop car lot filled with twilight Coupe Devilles," a reference to the Mile of Cars, the historic stretch of National City Boulevard currently home to twenty-one car franchises.
