second hand Riley Automotive

 I've started to see cars resold that we did the chassis for.
Not sure who the original owner of this one was.
Spotted it on ebay.
Has some nice details,and some ah gawd ones ..see below

If I was to give out a award for the worse tail lights ever on a Tudor
the 1959 Cadillac piston lights would win hands down !
Come on,keep it clean and simple.

I used 41 Chevy tail lights in this sedan a few years back..

Let's chop and channel this one

And a blower motor.And paint flames on it ! Get it...it's wood. I'm joking !

Cool brakes breaks

Love it when I see ads and the seller lists "new breaks" or disk breaks

Oh,I just saw this cool drum brake set up on a old race car

it is a 1934 Wolseley
supercharged too !

If early stuff interests you have a look here;

1931 Maserati  has cool drum brakes too. I like the way the bodywork doesn't cover the frame
