Having linked two disparate sides of Los Angeles since its construction in 1932, the 6th Street Bridge has become one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, lending its likeness to countless scores of films, TV shows and music videos.

Just before the bridge’s demolition on February 5, prolific Porsche collector and local celebrity Magnus Walker organised a last send-off for the beloved bridge, inviting all of the city’s motoring enthusiasts to come and celebrate. eGarage was there to record the event, narrated by Walker’s fond recollections of fast drives across the LA River.
