1953 Ariel Square Four

As a native of Los Angeles California I should be riding a Crocker as they were also a local product. Unfortunately, I don’t have an extra million laying around (I’m retired after all) so my wife Ela and I will try to make do with a ’53 Ariel Square Four. The Ariel came to me through AJ Lewis who was a local legend so there is at least some L.A. significance there. I hope the Ariel holds up so it doesn’t end up as another rusted and derelict object of passing interest along old route 66.
