Ah, I see the resemblence. The older gentleman is Robert Aubrey and he owns the shop doing the restorations, Custom Classics in Lancaster, CA. The younger gentleman is my college buddy Dave.

Brother bought a 1971 383 Cuda' when he returned from Viet Nam-then he sold it to me when he was sent to Iran to train their helicopter pilots(we were allies then)-
the SOB made me promise to sell it back to him when he returned-SOB held me to it so he got it back in 1977
Still pissed about that!
Bet that Roadrunner came with a 383-probably has a 440 now?
You could get a 440 Roadrunner MUCH MUCH cheaper than a 396 Chevelle and just forget about a 427 Chevy-rare and pricy

Yeah Mopars Plymouths Dodges-lotta bang for the $$-sooooo cool looking-just like than nose down Roadrunner!!

^One of the most gorgeous body designs of all time for sure IMO. I'd honestly be tempted to follow if I saw one.

The Dino was named after Enzo Ferrari's only son who died at age 24... a beautiful car

I've seen it before. And it's close cousin the FIAT Dino. It was going the other way, I was cycling and already running late.

It was good to see though. Nice to see a genuine classic vehicle being used, even in peak hour traffic. Made my morning.

The blue one is going to be resold. The car that is now blue is the red car with mismatched hood on the flatbed trailer. The other car that was being pushed into the other trailer is going to be red and will be his keeper.
I remember one of those pic's posted here before. I had a look on Alfa Bulletin Boards thinking there might be a build thread there, there isn't. Post pic's when there finished.

Sorry, another gorgeous 280se 3.5. The CD player bothers me a little...but at least they didn't cut into that dash.

Beautiful car, but the CD unit is hideous ... and the redline tires must go
