Los Angeles Region SAAC / Re: Paradise Cove Cars & Coffee

I'll stick with the no hassle C&C's, like every Saturday at Hawthorne Blvd and Artesia, or every Sunday in MDR, or a couple of good monthly ones in Palos Verdes.

Ca plates are a little deceiving IMHO but its not like others have not added them to cars later in life in hopes that it somehow improves something.

Before California allowed retro-fitting the 60's style yellow on black plates, the phrase "CA black plate" meant something.  True, today, it does not mean much at all, unless the owner can back it up with all of the yearly renewal stickers.

Correct, in California, reg stickers are only applied on the rear plate.  Since plates are issued in pairs, even MFG plates, easy enough for one pair to be split across two vehicles.

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 ISBN of the book is 9780979340703

Thanks for reminding us it was painted bright yellow after the pearl yellow.
This later photo of csx2000, in darker paint, is believed to be taken at LAX in 1965 by a Japanese photographer.
This was taken around the open house invitation to the press in June.
The fender emblem continues to appear in the higher mounted position. unlike that press photo in the lower placement.

The gas cap certainly match the left side placement of csx2000.

If this is from 1965, seems odd the car would still have a pre-1963 black on yellow license plate, instead of a yellow on black plate.

This one sold a few years ago at Monterey, $2.9M including buyers fee.

CSX 2000 Series / Re: Leno and Herbie Hancock Cobra
« on: March 08, 2021, 07:22:49 PM »
As Cobras go, it's actually car #6, as in CSX 2006.
Since the numbering started with CSX 2000, wouldn't CSX 2006 be the 7th car?

Anyone know if Voss Performance is still in business?  The phone number I found online, 714 773-9107, is not in service.

Back when I was a kid, and Edelbrock headquarters was in El Segundo, I used to ride my bicycle to their office, and ask the receptionist for stickers.

Notice that three of the four kids (including the girl) appear to have fresh scabs on their knees.   

Every kid in my neighborhood, when I was around that age, had skinned knees. Usually recurring on a daily basis.  Our parents would just spray some Bactine or Unguentine on them and off we'd go to play some more.  No big deal.  No lawsuits.

And those iron-on patches on the knees of our jeans. I remember asking my mom to iron them on the inside of the pant legs, to be less conspicuous.
