    I bit of trivia.

    The woman in the car was Gerry Barbour. Dick Barbour owned AutoMotion at that time before opening his own dealership in La Mesa, CA.

    Most likely, yes. Most other parts of the world use rear plates that would not have fit that panel.

    A Halda Speedpilot was a mechanical instrument for Time-Speed-Distance rallying. It helped a driver maintain an average speed.

    Halda made, typewriters, watches, and taxi meters and branched out into rally instruments: odometers and the Speedpilot computer. They still make watches.

    The basics of operation were that you'd set the required speed on the left dial and the internal gears would drive a hand on the right "clock" side so that if the driver kept a different hand on the "clock" which was driven by the odometer even with the first hand the car wold be at the correct average speed.

    In 1956, the 50 US states and Canada agreed with the Automobile Manufacturers Association to fix the size of all passenger vehicle license plates at 6 by 12 inches.

    Thumbs up

    Got it at Dick Barbour Porsche. Still have it, but not on the car.
    Could of had one of those from Danny McLaughlin (A.I.R.) when I showed him my car at his Burbank shop when I first got it in '89...... Danny said.. "Wait, I know that car !!!" ..." I put those damn rear fenders on it back in '73, probably one of the first 5 I ever did" he then reached under my rear wheel well "And I did these early ones all wrong !!! ... I was 'lapping' them instead of 'butting' them until I learned better... Oh well"

    Never bought the valance but REAL glad I showed him the car...
