|2002, Gloria meets guests at the gate with little |
Maybelline in her arms.
|As you drove through the gates, the smells of honey suckle and orange blossoms lifted you out of the city, while heavenly colors transported you back to 1930s Hollywood.|
Mexican pavers added more color, drama and glamour while the overwhelming beauty captivated your soul.
A classic car enthusiast, Bill Williams, collected and stored 12 of his automobiles in two separate garages on the grounds. This is one reason he bought the estate...
for the garage space.
|The 1968 TR6, 69 Rolls Royce, 1961 Limo, and|
1915 Model-T truck.
|Gloria's car parked at the doorway of|
Casa de Guillermo. A nice feature for arriving guests,
who never got caught in the rain while packing or unpacking their car.
|There were 3 gates on the estate. One leading in,|
one leadng out and one receiving guests who parked outside on the street.
|Little parking alcoves allowed guests to park,|
without interfering with the beauty of the landscape.
|My dad bought his Clenet, # 13 for Gloria's Birthday in 1977 and after his death it has remained in our family for the last 7 years. We had it cosmetically restored to it's original glory 2 years ago and have enjoyed showing it a the La Quinta and Santa Barbara Concours.|
The car is now up for sale and can be seen at
