"It was in good shape, but still, it needed a lot of work." The club never completed the project, and Cliff believed the Police Department ended up taking it back.

Cliff Riehl was a member of the Road Lords of So. Cal. car club. He joined the club as a teenager in the 1950s, and helped organize the first, and only, Disneyland Car Club Day and Autocade September 5, 1959. "It was the last time we held it there," Cliff told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020, "Disney took all the money," he added. Cliff did not have a car at the show himself. While he was a member of the club, he drove a 1940 Ford, Mercury, and different other cars. "Nothing I really fixed up," he added, "they were just four-doors and a small coupe. I had big tires in the back and small tires in the front."[1]
