The Italian Job

Building a total tailor made is a soreness in the ass even if you are accomplishing it from Southern California. The parts hunt is just relentless. Trim off this product, headlight buckets off this design, rear window surround off this product, etc… It truly is a dogged chore only achieved with the most acute of resolve.

Now, consider to imagine carrying out all that shit from Italy… a area in which American autos have been by no means common and classic steel is as rare as the Cleveland Browns in the Super Bowl. It looks like an unachievable task.

Enter a HAMBer by the title of Mirko. Back in 2014, he located a 1949 Cadillac and resolved to ignore the impossibilities. His English was a bit broken again then, but his vision was not… From what I can obtain, Mirko and a gentleman that goes by the name of Marcello Schettini have been tricky at it for pretty much a 10 years and submitting significantly of the effort and hard work on a make thread.

It is now 2022 and Mirko’s English has come pretty much as considerably as his Cadillac. It’s not finished nevertheless, but male is this a enjoyment thread to maintain tabs on.

You should do just that below. You will be happy ya did.
