Where Did the Palma Viva Tagline Come From?

What’s the deal with the Palma Viva Tagline from 1978?

Good question!  According to one of the original residents of Palma Viva (circa 1978), the developer (Alan Mishkin) had marketing t-shirts made up to promote sales of the condominiums.  On the t-shirt was the tagline:

“I Get the Most Dates at Palma Viva!”

We must admit, that’s pretty darn cute considering Palma Viva was converted from an old Date farm!  Now, if we only had a resident who actually saved said t-shirt, that would really be something!  Actually, we’d be happy with just an old picture of the t-shirt too!  Does anyone else remember this Palma Viva folklore or have a copy of the t-shirt hiding in a box?  Please share if you do!

Created for the Online Collection of Palma Viva History!

Calling all Current & Former Palma Viva Residents!

Do you have Palma Viva history hiding in your closet, stuffed away in boxes, sitting in storage just collecting dust?  Pull all that richness out and post it here on the Palma Viva Blog!  As time continues to pass, more and more of the original residents of the Palma Viva Condominiums (Circa 1978-79) are losing, or have already lost, some of their original photography, their historical documents, original advertisements & marketing, date farm history, or even the Palma Viva folklore hiding in their memory banks.  Let’s crowd source and all work together to save this valuable history online where it will never be lost and it will be accessible to future generations forever!

Looking forward to hearing from everyone!
