“The Black Widow” opens show circuit in 
Del Mar, CA, Goodguys Indoor/Outdoor Show, April 3-5, 2009
& La Verne, CA “Cool Cruise” April 11th - outdoor show

Private collectors, aficionados and museum owners come see the masterful reconstruction of the ORIGINAL “Black Widow” found in a garage in 2005 and now finished to perfection in 2009 by Richard Riddell.Now for sale call Don at 619.804.8033.” Details below:

Why is the car being sold?

To quote his wife Pat, “Unfortunately, Richard passed away on March 18, 2008 and will not get to enjoy seeing the new owner drive away with a piece of automotive history.” Richard’s loyal wife Pat grew up around racing since she was 9 years old. Her maiden name was Rodriguez. If you grew up at Lion’s Dragstrip, as she did, you may remember her father’s rail? He and his sons ran an old top alky rail under the name “Rodriguez and Sons ”. Pat said, ‘As I was growing up I often wondered how I would ever meet someone to marry, since all that our family ever did was go to the drags. Then one day Richard came along and met me at the Winternationals.’ Well the rest is history. For Pat after Richard’s death there are just too many memories attached to all the memorabilia, race cars and hot rods in their storage—she would like to sell “The Black Widow” to some deserving hot rodder.
