Shelby American History / John Timanus motorcycle racing
« on: April 04, 2021, 03:49:54 PM »
While reading through the book titled Flat Out! The Rollie Free Story, John Timanus is mentioned racing an Ariel 500cc single, in 1947, at Rosamond dry lake, and winning the 30.50 inch gas class with a speed of 98.32 MPH.  Does anyone know more about John's motorcycle racing efforts?

The Lounge / Grand Prix movie
« on: May 09, 2020, 11:49:55 PM »
It’s airing Monday at 11AM on KCOPDT3, not sure if it will be available outside the LA area.  It played last year at the Cinerama Dome. A number of drivers from that era are in it, a few with speaking parts. A decent movie.

A friend of mine that restores cars and motorcycles lost his lease, and is looking for space to rent, in the westside of Los Angeles.  He needs 500 sq ft or larger, with 220v 3 phase.  He is willing to share a facility.  Contact Haig Alltounian at 310-477-8821.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / License plate frame dimensions
« on: June 08, 2018, 01:05:25 PM »
I see two styles of Cobra license plate frames.  I like the one with all 4 mounting holes, but have limited space.  The frame with 4 holes is available from, while the one with 2 holes is available from Tony Branda, and likely other sources.  Can anyone tell me the outside height dimension of either frame?
