Thats right...even though the microbus wouldve been better suited to be the mystery machine...

Now cmon spill it, where are these cars! That Alfa and Lancia reallt have me smitten...most of the others are "run of the mill" classics...

But look at the Jag/daimler pic...the mechanic uses an early merc hubcap as a bowl!

You guys think this is the right thread though? Id think it should be in the rust in pieces thread...

Hi, Just saw these snaps and noticed a Studebaker also in that . I am restoring my 47 Champion and would love to get hold of the car for parts and even try and restore this car. Please let me know how we could work with this private collector of beauties to get Either car on the road.

Kasli

whats the asking price for this car. Can I get it ?

Regards
Kasli
