On My Travels: Fiat Trasformazione Stanguellini in Palermo, Sicily
I stumbled upon this beautiful Fiat Trasformazione Stanguellini race car in a garage near the docks in Palermo. The garage owner gruffly dismissed me with a wave of his hand when I said I was from Texas. I was crestfallen that I would not be able get into his garage, but after a few moments, I meekly asked a mechanic if I could take a few pictures and he invited me inside. This car was completely covered and when I asked what was under the cover, the mechanic readily lifted the cover. I’d love to learn more about this car. Stanguellinis were highly engineered race cars that notched considerable racing successes. There is a Stanguellini museum in Modena, Italy.
