Road Lords of So. Cal.
The Road Lords was a car club out of Southern California that was sanctioned by the Los Angeles Police Department Advisory Council. September 5, 1959, the club held a legendary car show at Disneyland called Disneyland Car Club Day and Autocade. The show was a one-day event that found place at Holidayland. At the time, the club consisted of about 12 members. Tom Wolley was the President.
The Stout Scarab
The Los Angeles Police Department donated a Stout Scarab project car to the club. "We never had enough money to make it look good again," Cliff Riehl told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020. "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.
