7833 Lomas Blvd., N.E. Franchised for just about every British car sold in the U.S. in 1959: Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Austin-Healey, Austin, MG, Morris, Rover, Land Rover, Triumph, Hillman, Aston Martin, and, last but not least, A.C. Ace-Bristol (that later, with a Ford 260 V-8 under the hood, became the first Shelby Cobra).

Incidentally, I got to see a pretty exceptional local car collection today. '65 GT350, a later GT500 originally purchased in Albuquerque, an original 289 Cobra, an original '66 427 Cobra, etc. The Boss 429 and Sunbeam Tiger were offsite at the time.

I couldn't remember this building. Looks like it was a little north of where Melloy Datsun used to be...

You are hanging with some fast friends.
