“Offers the finest in dining-motel accommodations in the Salton Sea area. Salton Sea, a project of the Holly Corporation, is the focal point of Southern California’s great Salton Sea recreation area.”

It's the sort of phrase that could only come from the Age of the Reign of the Technocrats: “Salton Sea, a project of the Holly Corporation.”

It didn't end well. Take a look here. And here. Then watch the little clip.
