There were two tiny Fiats on the roof, so they were removed and was ale to drive the car home.


Was in a junkyard with cars stacked on top of it and after unstacking it you drove it home? I would have loved to have seen pix of that.

This is my 71 Cuda some days after being driven home. Plates are from my Camaro, car had no plates at the time. Tires had just been changed, the original Polyglas white stripe F70 were too worn out in the front due to misalignment. If you look closely, the roof is still dented.
I remember the day I drove the car home, it stalled evry street light because the original Holley 600 was in bad shape. If was very funny to drive, 4 speed and 3.91 , disc brakes and locking differential made for a lot of fun in light traffic.....it was so much faster than my 69  SS Camaro...
The Hemicuda was another fun story. I heard about the car as a orange Barracuda , but nobody wanted to tell me where the car was. Finally tracked down the car in a city about 100 miles from me, Turin. Car was in a dark garage, had a hole in the hood and was a 4 speed Hemi imported by Simca Italia in 70. No plates, just custom clearance in march 70 and manifacturer statement of origin. 9000 km on the car, 5500 miles.Engine was in the upper leve of the garage, completely apart and in very bad shape. Crank was already turned 0.20. and still needed another clean up. Pistons and rods were missing as were main caps. In that period, getting parts was not easy from Italy, we are in 1988 more or less, expecially Hemi parts, so were on the phone quite often with Bob Mazzolini in Riverside, CA. I got all my hemi stuff from him. Started travelling to US for getting parts and in 92 car was finished. Only problem, I could not get plates for a couple of years, as it was not consider old enough for historical plates. But in the end everything went ok.
I remember the first trip with the car, about one km from home, everything new and perfect, new water pump from Mopar. Heard a big noise, and saw water coming out from everywhere. Drove the one km to my house without water, and when opened the hood, the radiator fan , the water pump pulley and water pump shaft were all inside the radiator....
Thank you for the warm welcome....will tell you some stories of street racing another day....
