An Entire Desert Town That Once Served as the Backdrop for ‘Airwolf’ Just Sold for $6.25 Million

Desert Center, as it is known, has been compared to both the charming Route 66 hamlet of Radiator Springs from “Cars” and the treacherous Nevada town from “The Hills Have Eyes,” but the truth of the place lies somewhere in between.

The remote site was the brainchild of preacher Stephen Ragsdale, who fortuitously broke down in the area while traveling from his hometown of Palo Verde Valley to Los Angeles in 1915.

Incredibly, the town remained in the Ragsdales’ hands up until just last month when its 1,034.78 acres were sold for $6.25 million to Balwinder S. Wraich, a transport company owner based in Riverside.
