"Was the local mechanic Frank Monise?"

No. He had a shop in Reseda for years after moving from Burbank. Tom Braim. Convenient for me. I could drop off the car and take the bus home. Repeat to pick it up. Worked for both the Elan and MK II Sedan.

Retired some years ago down to Orange County.

Has anyone done a run of reproduction Challman license plates? Was considering doing that.

We have a place almost around the corner from there. I frequently run past in the winter. I'm reminded I should ask the car rental place there if I could wander inside just to imagine what it was like. John
