The "68" Rivi

Got down to work on the "68" the last couple of day's. Drained gas tank, replaced some fuel line, new fuel filter and fresh battery. Sure enough she fired right up! Need to pick up two new tires and she should be on the road .

I've been thinking of starting this piece about the auto/moto related people and places that I stumble upon in the greater L.A. area. Well this location will remain private out of respect to the owner. I have known about this place for a while now and drive by it regularly but my timing was never right to see it open or anyone to talk to to. So last week I got lucky finding the door open and the collectors mechanic in the back working on that Lola. He was very cool and invited me in to see the Lola project and the rest of the amazing collection which includes but is not limited to a 300SL coupe, supercharged "65"350GT Mustang, two AC Cobras, Ford GT40 and a few nice motorcycles. This guy has good taste to say the least! I have been invited back to meet the owner, stay tuned for more pics in the future!
This is the Lola at Riverside.
