    The 51 car was owned by a dear friend that passed in 2014, Fred Lobello . Fred was a 49er. He ran 4 banger lakesters forever. He was the original machinist for Paul Shieffer when he started making racing clutches and flywheels. He also did all the machine work on Riley heads for John Vesco after Vesco got all of George Riley's death. Quiet man that was a hot rodder and innovator.

    I restored the red and white one. We ran it at the Alvord Desert last fall.

    Hemi32 you have a good eye through the lens. The display is really in a nice setting. Maybe it is there, but a display military surplus parts used by the Hot Rodders such as gauges, seat belts, seats, fittings, etc. would add a lot. Also, the early lakes guys uniform of Navy jackets, boots, googles were all sourced from surplus and could make a nice exhibit.

  27. @V8RPU - Thanks for the compliment ... but I can't take credit for any of the images I posted ... they were all culled from the Internet (i.e., from the Lyon Air Museum website, Facebook, or Instagram).
