Original owner:

Don M. Burton, Master Adobe Home Builder--Escondido, CA

Don M. Burton designed and constructed mid-century modern adobe homes in the
Las Palmas neighborhood, at the height of the Escondido and North County adobe
home construction revival. As a custom adobe home builder, Don Burton teamed
up with father-in-law Hyrum Arrowsmith on some construction projects, and
would later be assisted on occasion by his son, Mike to build 26 adobe homes
between 1956 until the mid-1970s.

Don Burton started in construction as a concrete worker for a large company in Los
Angeles. At the time of his employment, the company had been building a large
school auditorium. His son, Mike Burton explained that his father, Don, saved this
contract from a major disaster. "When a form on a pour- in place wall blew out,
the other workers jumped back, but he grabbed some lumber and hydraulic jacks,
and saved the pour, the wall & thousands of dollars of the company’s money."
Soon after, Don earned the position as a foreman and somewhere along the way, he
began to work concrete jobs with this father-in-law, Hyrum Arrowsmith.

Mike Burton wrote: "My grandfather was a carpenter in Salt Lake City Utah who
hauled coal in the winter. It was the depression and there wasn't much work
around." Mike's mother, Marion Beth Arrowsmith was a young child at the time.
The family "almost starved...so they moved to San Fernando Valley" where
Arrowsmith secured a job as a carpenter, building movie sets at MGM studios.
Don Burton was raised in Burbank, where, in 1940, he met Mike's mother, Beth.
"After my dad & grandfather started working together they also built homes
separately in Burbank, Playa del Rey, Palos Verdes Estates before coming to
Escondido in late 1955, and that's when the adobe construction started." Mr.
Burton explained, "vacant lots in the Los Angeles beach areas became too
expensive for them to make a profit". Also, the area was becoming crowded and
heavy with traffic since the expansive LA freeway system was not yet constructed.
Land in Escondido, by comparison was inexpensive.

Following the pattern of many home builders in California and parts of the United
States, the Arrowsmith-Burton team were spec builders. "All of the homes but
three, were built for speculation." Hyrum Arrowsmith and Don Burton bought
subdivided lots in Longview Acres (Las Palmas neighborhood) from L.R. Green,
purchased building materials (1), and constructed adobe homes primarily from the
designs Mr. Mike Burton describes as from "my family's style." When Don Burton
started adobe home construction in Escondido, most builders such as Sherman and
Paxton and the Weir Brothers had favored the architectural design of the California
Western Ranch house popularized in the late 1940's by Sunset magazine's
publication on the subject. According to Mike Burton, his father had started to
build his homes with mid-century modern design elements that took a traditional
long, low ranch style home and extended the eaves 35-48 inches. On occasion, Mr.
Arrowsmith hired an Escondido draftsman, Phil Gaudet, to draw up house plans,
however, Mr. Burton drafted his own designs and plans. Many of his homes
incorporated materials reclaimed from older buildings, such as massive beams
sourced from an old warehouse. The size and quality of the materials were
unavailable elsewhere. More whimsical elements included glass bottles
incorporated into a fireplace built by the 19 year old Mike as his first solo project.
Mike still has his father's wood working tools, drafting table and machinery.

The Las Palmas adobe home construction project did not start off well for Mr.
Burton. His son, Mike explained that "dad got really sick in 1956. He stepped on
a rusty nail and got hepatitis, so that 2625 Las Palmas took a year and a half to
build." It was very hard work, "but they still did it all themselves." Other
challenges arose throughout the home building projects. Adobe construction was
very labor intensive and back breaking work. Many times, while Hyrum took on
this strenuous construction work his wife, Martha would lend a hand to help with
various finishing work. As a result, Mr. Arrowsmith developed heart problems and
at times was in poor health. His son-in-law had often pitched in to finish
construction projects.

Don Burton was an "extremely talented craftsman" who did all of his own
construction work: concrete, block work, framing, electrical, cabinetry, finishing
and even turning 8 x 8 posts on a homemade lathe. Mrs. Burton came to the job
sites every day and would also help with painting and odd jobs. "They were a
team." In 1975, Don built his last adobe home for the couple's retirement years.
The beautiful solid wall post and beam adobe home is located east of Bear Valley

This is the story of the Burton family Jaguar XK-E Coupe, 1E34606

As told by Mike Burton.

My father and mother Donald M. Burton (09/29/1922 - 01/02/2013) and Marion Beth Burton (05/06/1923 - 12/28/2012) bought the car new in December of 1967 from Escondido Imports on E. Ohio Ave. in Escondido California. The car was my dad‘s pride and joy.
The first two years or so it was the only car my parents had other than my dad‘s pick up and they soon found out that it wasn’t really practical as a family car and this is the only time that it was actually driven on a regular basis.
I had a Volkswagen that I was going to sell instead I gave it to my mom and she started using it to run her errands and etc.
The car had a heating problem from the time it was new but the mechanics at Escondido Imports said that was because the car was designed to be driven in England and now it was in a warmer climate and to expect that. But after a few years but not many miles it became a problem and I did a test on it and we discovered it had a leaking head gasket which was actually that way from the factory. In about 1971 I put a head gasket in the car and that was the end of the problem.
From that time on my parents always had a second car so they only drove it on Sundays and special occasions and usually not very far. Then as the years went by it was driven less and less but always maintained very well. My dad always did his own oil changes and regular maintenance and really the car wasn’t worked on all that much but it was always kept very clean and polished.
Please remember that my parents were approaching 50 years old when they bought the car and as the years went on and they got older and older it was driven less and less and finally my dad couldn’t get in it anymore.
Don and Beth Burton were married 70 years and at New Year 2013 they passed away four days apart. I inherited the car and treated it the same way my parents always did. I am a classic car person and have two of my own. I took it to car shows and had some fun with it but I am 6’ 3” and 240 pounds and approaching 80 years old and I was having trouble getting in and out of it. Also so I decided to sell it and contacted Joe Bortz in Chicago and he made the deal. As far as I know it went to the Netherlands to a person named René van der Wal and the money was wire transferred. They sent a person to pick up the car and I was told it was taken to San Francisco and containerized to be shipped to Europe.
At that time I did not realize that René was actually a broker but it seems as though when you deal with these people they’re not always truthful.
I was around the car from the time it was sold new until it left my possession.
The car was completely original never involved in any accidents very well taken care of and always in a garage.
The tires that were on the car when it was sold were only the second set ever on the car and the spare tire was the original.
A time or two I have regretted selling it however even though I have a large RV garage with my motorhome, boat, classic cars and tools inside it was a storage problem also and I hope the new owners greatly appreciate this fine car.

Sincerely Mike Burton

Actually at the time my dad had been in that dealership which understand it was a very small dealership and they had a roadster in there and I believe it was red and he inquired it several times but my mom did not wanna roadster. So Doug Garton who was the owner of Escondido Imports ordered the car in with hopes of enticing my dad into buying it and that color combination is the way it came and naturally my folks like it.

There was also a 2+2 version that came in at the same time and most people don’t think there’s good looking I know I don’t oddly enough. My father-in-law at the time bought it but unfortunately it’s life was very short. He and his wife were involved in a serious head on collision in the car of which his wife did not survive and naturally the car was totaled but it was also the same color combination.

Doug Garton sold other European cars as well and ended up moving the dealership and changing it into Escondido Volvo and some years after that he saw my dad and offered him a brand new top-of-the-line Volvo for that car but my dad just said no and actually bought a Volvo for their second car.
