Early 1930’s Riley Motorcar

Posted in Photography by Bridget Casas on February 13, 2009

We needed to go up to Pasadena yesterday to the shop (FMM). They had two collectors cars there to work on. One was a three wheeled 1949 Morgan and the other was this 1934 Riley. The Riley Cycle Company was a British bicycle manufacturer.  The company built the Riley motorcar from 1898 until 1939. There were many models. They later merged into British Leyland. Today, the trademark is owned by BMW. It is rumored this motorcar was purchased for over $100,000 a year ago.

We had beautiful weather again yesterday, but I do not think it is going to last very long. We will probably get more rain before the week is out. I made a doctor’s appointment for today.  My regular doctor has left the practice and moved up North. I hate having to start over with a new doctor. I hope I can finally get this stomach problem taken care of! Today is Friday the 13th – are you superstitious? I am not quite sure what this week-end is going to bring. I will let you know!
