Uncle Lionel's Cord

I remember hearing story's of my uncle Lionel having owned a coffin nosed cord in the late 50's. He would loan it to my dad once in awhile and my dad would pick my mom up from work at the old Sears store on Soto st. in L.A. back when they dated.  I believe the total 10 year Cord production to be about 4400 cars.

The original had a four valve per cylinder, twin plug per cylinder, magneto ignition engine and adjustable oil  pressure valve. All very tricky for the time.

Good Memories

I have great memories of my Dad giving my sisters and I rides through City Terrace Hills on his Honda Super Hawk when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I can still remember the smell of that bike when it got hot.

"66"- 911 Mule

Ben spotted this car at rennsport from a hundred yards away and got all exited, and for good reason, the car had a strange factory test mule history and had R flares , R program parts as well as sunroof. The car was well prepared "AKA done right".

I can remember as a kid  going by the shop whenever we were  in Redondo Beach. There was always a nice used 356 in the showroom back in the early seventies.
