The 54 Corvette (with 74 actual miles on the odometer)  - compare to the white 54 Corvette on the street in Manhattan Beach, California on May 8 (with many more miles on it) -

Black 1954 Corvette (like new!)

A favorite from the fifties – a Studebaker Coupe from around 1953 – and Raymond Lowy really knew what he was doing – and the owners loved them -

Everyone needs a white Knight – or once needed one –

Not exactly in the museum, but the in the area of the museum...
So you wonder what you can do with a 1929 Packard?

1929 Packard

Edelbrock – first at Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills (1933) them the next year at Venice and Hoover – and after World War II a machine shop and auto repair place at 1200 North Highland here in Hollywood.  Then the first purpose-built shop on Jefferson Boulevard down the hill in Culver City – still there, now empty, and the sign is fading.  Now they have four shops in Torrance, and foundry in San Jacinto.  It’s a California hot rod thing – gotta have Edelbrock headers.  Used to know a model who posed for their girlie calendars – said she felt odd standing there in very high heels and a very tiny bikini holding an intake manifold in her left hand -
