Dick Marconi is the guy that started herbalife, and made millions (billions?)

These were in the parking lot, not in the museum.

Always had mixed feelings about auto museums

On the one hand, they facilitate seeing a species of cars we would never otherwise see

On the other, it’s like seeing caged animals. Sad to see machinery locked up and not in its natural habitats, being flogged around a track or driven like having sex with sheep on fire

Love that Coronet 440 with the flattop intakes for the dual 4bbls...

I had Countach posters all over my bedroom when I was a wee lad

Don’t care much for them now and looking at it today the styling doesn’t make up for their dogshit performance

if my gearbox cost a million bucks, id be pretty pissed if it ate 30 clutches in 200 miles...
lol... that maff works out to 6.66666 miles per clutch. I would question who was working on the thing... they could have been bleeding the Sultan dry...hahaha. Its a Kanudder valve and by golly its not even chamferred! Probably needs ball bearing technology!

The turquoise and white Metropolitan is owned by a neighbor of mine here in Fallbrook.
