I think I may have something you may be interested in, and I'd appreciate the identification. my grandpa SGT James Edward Day was stationed in Asmara in kagnew station from 57-58. he bought this car, hot rodded it(with the help of a jolly old italian man he said, haha), and raced it around quite alot. he claimed it was an alfa, or had an alfa inline 8. I think this info may have been gotten mixed up and twisted by the time it went from him, to my dad, to me. it doesnt really look like an alfa. when he finished his service, he wanted to take it home, but couldnt, so he sold it to a guy at base, and never heard anything about it again. what is this thing? I'm new to all these cars, but the grille shell looks like it has a Lancia emblem? I have searched my butt off, and just happened to find this thread.
