Saved From The Crusher: A '69 Daytona’s Amazing Story!

  Saved From The Crusher: A '69 Daytona’s Amazing Story! This 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was pulled from a junkyard in 1982, just minutes from destruction. This Daytona's saga began in 1973 when it ended up, along with about 50 other cars, at Avenue Auto Parts in Kansas City, Missouri. While we don't have a name for the dealership and its owner, we do know that these vehicles were part of a large collection that was impounded by the state of Missouri as a result of some unscrupulous dealer shenanigans involving bogus titles. The owner must have been knee deep in it because he ended up in jail, and the cars eventually forfeited as a result of the long-term storage bills.

Fancy a Pininfarina-built Fiat 124 Sport Spider?

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has introduced its new official restoration program for classic models of Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, and Abarth. The new division is called Reloaded by Creators and will sell carefully selected retro vehicles, “which have been restored to their original glory and guaranteed by the constructor.”

The newly established program will guarantee the authenticity of the selected cars with a certificate. The funds raised by the service will be invested into scouting other rare FCA vehicles, restoring them, and adding them to the existing historic collections of the automaker. This makes Reloaded by Creators, as FCA explains, “a real cultural project, inspired by the modus operandi of art museums worldwide.”

Out of the Sinkhole: Corvette Museum Has Restored the Last of the Damaged Vettes Exactly four years ago, a massive sinkhole appeared directly under the National Corvette Museum, swallowing eight of the rarest and most special Corvettes on Earth. Of the eight, five were put back on display unrestored, and two were brought back to their original condition by the General Motors heritage program. The last one, a 1962 Corvette finished in Tuxedo Black, has just finished its restoration process, and it looks stunning.
