1957 AUTOBIANCHINA
TRANSFORMABLE

 


 
I found this car in Dayton Ohio buried under a pile of junk. It had the phrase "LOVE PEACE" painted on the hood. 

 

The restoration of the car involved hours of stretching, pounding, filing, and hand sanding the body to remove dents. Mechanical repairs were typical; all new brakes, rebuilt suspension, and a new 650 cc motor from Poland.

 

People ask if I feel safe driving such a small car in traffic...all I can say is that you learn to be an alert defensive driver when your ride is this small. George Lucas of Star Wars fame was once given a transformable by his father after telling him that he wanted to be a race car driver.
