Before I show the pictures of the cool museum in Los Angles, let me update you on the Acura. The Axle fix that I tried last post didn’t work. There is still noise coming from the drive line. It could be the wheel bearings or the axles. I ordered a set of road race axles that should be here at the end of the month. There is no play in the wheel hinting at a bad bearing so I believe this should fix it.
The Peterson Museum is a great place for car lovers. They have a walk through of the history of the car on the first floor, and rotating exhibits on the second. The Exhibits at present represent the italian design and aerodynamics.
What would Italian design be with out a Ferrari. I give you the 1957 Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa. This car has a monster 3 litter V12. It was a race car for the street that was last raced in 1962. These cars usually sell for more than 16 million dollars the rare time they go to auction so it’s unlikely this one will ever see the track again.
The Alfa Romeo 8C. You could actually buy this car in America a few years ago if you knew the right people. Hopefully Alfa will return to America again soon so we all can have a taste of the Beautiful cars they can make.
This is a 1970 Lancia Stratos HF zero. With that look you knew it was designed in the 70’s. It was a one of a kind concept car that would showcase the angular design of all the super cars to come. The front windshield was hinged at the top to let passengers in.
I will return with part 2 in a few days
