We decided to feature this 1972 Lancia Stratos Stradale today despite the fact that we just featured a Stratos last week. I sincerely doubt that any of you will complain about being inundated with a car that re-wrote the rule book for international rally competition and looked utterly spellbinding whilst doing it.
This is a new series on Silodrome called “The Projects”, we’ll be bringing you interesting, unusual and absurd Project Cars that we dig up…
When it comes to project cars, you’ll be hard pressed find one more promising than this 1963 Aston Martin DB4 ‘Series V’ Vantage. In some respects, the ‘Series V’ Vantage was actually the beta version of the DB5 – the styling was carried over almost unchanged – which leads many people (including me on occasion) to confuse the DB4 Series ‘V’ with the DB5.
The 1972 Chevrolet Camaro was almost the last one ever made due to severe strikes at the GM factory leading to 174 days of silence on the factory floor resulting in over 1,100 incomplete Camaros being sent to the knackers yard.
