Tin Lizzie Returns To Wilacre Park

LAUREL CANYON—“Keep your thumb out of the way” he yelled!  I was being coached on the fundamentals of crank-starting a Tin Lizzie.  Boy, giving that crank handle enough force beyond a 1/4 turn was tough going.  It took me a few times and determination.  After planting my feet, I managed to turn the hand crank clockwise from 8 o’clock...
