Ignore the name...they run/ran multiple early Ford product lines out of there with a lot of different names. Phone # may or may not still be right (check Elmo Rodge/search HAMB if enlightenment needed), and they are still waiting to see if the computer fad is worth checking out.
Half museum, half unusual speeed equipment/parts store, nothing you'll see elsewhere and far better than Disneyland.
I have dealt with the place since the early '60s...they were an enigma even then. When I finally got to visit, I chose them over the Petersen in my limited time in LA, and have NO regrets.

(PS...if you have Megan along, they sell everything she has ever imagined for her Model A)
Thanks for the tip Bruce! I haven't been there before.

As far as the Early Ford Store, Denise knows it is one of my all time favorite places! I got a picture texted to me upon her arrival there
