    Hello! Trying to find my dads old car...

    Hi all,

    I was pointed towards this forum from another that I use as I have managed to find some pictures of my fathers old car and would love to try and track it down...

    Oh and the plate was taken off the car before it was sold, just to make it more difficult!

    If anyone has any suggestions I would be really grateful

    Thanks

    Max

    What's your Dad's name Max?
    Where was he living when he had the car? Is it an original Lancia or a replica? (I think it's a Hawk/Transformer?)

    The more info the better.

    That’s an original Chris, the Lancia Motor Club May also be able to help if posted there. Unfortunately you’re going to need the new number plate or have a good idea of the chassis number. Genuine cars aren’t that common so it may have left the country by now. Good luck with the search.

    Thanks for the reply Chris

    His name was Bruno Ferrari, we lived in Pinner, Middlesex at the time. It was an original car, and was crashed and repaired before being sold. This was around 1980-1982.

    I know its not much to go on, but you never know!

    It's got the correct CN36s.

    Max,
    Did he have a 131 Abarth too?

    The Lancia Motor Club has no record of your Dad being a member from the 1991 member's regisiter or the later (current electronic database). If you have a number plate for the car I can check some more but Strati are thin on the ground. You might like to ask Martin Cliffe of Omicron.

    Hi Max,
    By any chance was your dad the famous karting engine tuner and dealer. Bruno Ferrari ?
