I called up a chap named Lou who was advertising a couple of MGA's. We arranged to meet at his ranch that afternoon. I always like driving in California, it's a pleasure, as opposed to the hell of driving in the UK. Lou turned out to be a lovely guy, a plumber by profession. After a quick look at his MGA's I decided they weren't worth taking back to the UK. I had impressed him by knowing the name of the sports car in his drive. It seems no-one else had ever known, and he knew I was a fellow petrolhead. He invited me to see "some of his stuff". Gobsmacked wouldn't have covered my reaction. A 6000 sq ft barn chock full of goodies on two floors.
American Pickers eat your heart out. And the name of the sports car? - Kellison.
