’75 CADILLAC ELDORADO CONVERTIBLE, 2005 HAZZARD FILM BOSS CAR
These are one of the many cars that looked for me, in the sense that I did not look for her but she was looking for me!
Cars found in a courtyard in of abandonment from my father-in-law who went to the countryside of Lake Garda in a farm called me immediately after seeing her semi-destroyed in a field, immediately I had not realized that it was the model and year exact used in the film hazzard 2005, incredible, knew this I could not restistere, once ren The owners have managed to buy it! The restoration lasted three years, I sanded the car, I peeled and painted it white, interiors were redone completely like the hood, the engine and gearbox for now incredibly I did not done nothing if not replaced filters, oil and candles! among the photos you can see those of the restoration and also some photos of the cadillac used in the film! Here too as for the general lee the enterprise was the matriculation in addition to the restoration! I do not know ‘if restoration and the appropriate term, some professional may be offended, I try to make do as I can if I want to collect all the cars of hazzard I have to make the + possible and I can not afford to spend astronomical figures for each car, also other works, may seem a little arranged, but for me and the demonstration that to pursue dreams and realize them it is not necessary to have the accordion wallet and to slide the credit card, if a he really cares about the realization of something and never loses sight of the goal and puts his at the end can not ‘be proud of the result, I do not consider myself good and particularly capable, perhaps even particularly incapable, I think that my merit is only the constancy and the caparbieta of never giving up! to many it may seem all a makeshift job, I do not call it nor settle for it, I call it having given the best of its possibilities both economic and not, which clearly does not mean having done a better job than others a job that is necessarily defined at a high level, and certainly the perfectionists will be ready to criticize certain aspects of the work, but this is fine with me, here I can think of a quote by T. ROOSVELT,
80 euros for the visit (in essence as a revision) and 40 euros for the plates, very important to immediately report that the plate you want square, the bulletin is different and costs a few cents less, so total expenditure for motorization 120 euros + documentation asi 180 euros, total 300 euros round rounds if you do not support an agency and do everything on your own, exactly as a decade ago, prices have not changed! what to put in the trunk? the night before you panicked you do all the paranoid of the world, the good nuvolas had also made me two spare earmuffs of the front axle shafts seen that one was broken, I had not yet replaced,
I put the test plate, I close, you hear the scooter of the trunk that starts and closes the trunk, how nice it works !!!! taken from
the entourage I redo the thing for at least three times, open close, open close, open close, then I I decide to leave my game “elastic” jump in the car ride the key part, how nice it works !!!!!! a rumble and then silence, my caddy and truly the silent car of the world, it seems electric, I put the brake in the damper and move stylish, we leave, I’m on my
transatlantic and I’m heading in motorization, I’m happy, the road flows away
pleasant, constant speed, nice to feel the belly between the head ….. ah no I wanted to say on the skin, I try the headlights, high lows, arrows, right, how nice, they work
arrival in motorization the gates are still closed, I put in the queue, and very soon, I thought I was the first but no, I put in the queue! the auoto are few rows mixed between cars and trucks, I explain that we will re-align to ‘ opening the gates, the black-eyed and pissed off, does not bode well, I’m agitated button attack with everyone, the owner of the truck in front of me and a nice person, talking to him about futile things made me a little ‘relax and it makes me lose my head and my thoughts a little, I go to find the first of the tail, in front of me and him in the ground only a blanket with something underneath, I immediately think of someone who camped for the night to take the place I ask him what he says and tells me he does not knowhe has a mechanical workshop in the side and the truck took him the night before to be the first and that bag was not there, it seems there is an apersona, I try to call but nothing, with the tip of the foot touch the blanket no one moves, I give myself courage and slightly raise a corner of the blanket, I look under one eye only the other I keep it closed, I do not know why, maybe to save, you know I’m stingy, I get up a little + the blanket, a sack, black, I immediately thought of mr bean, I thought that at any momentI take courage and slightly raise a corner of the blanket, I look under one eye only the other I keep it closed, I do not know why, maybe to save, you know I’m tirchio, I raise a little ‘+ the blanket, a lot, black, I immediately thought of mr bean, I thought that at any momentI take courage and slightly raise a corner of the blanket, I look under one eye only the other I keep it closed, I do not know why, maybe to save, you know I’m tirchio, I raise a little ‘+ the blanket, a lot, black, I immediately thought of mr bean, I thought that at any moment
arrived to register his mini and put in place of the bag to be the first in line, ehhhh no, mr bean I do not care predno sack and blanket and throw it behind a hedge, here, now you’re the first I tell the driver of the van that together with the other laughs looking at me as if I were crazy, they spend a few minutes, I see the flashing orange, of the automatic gate that
I open my bonnet to check the engine number, ***** I had to take a piece of chalk you can barely read, I’m going to read it on the data sheet, hell I do not even have a pen if I had a tip I would write it on a call and when within the hood I pretend to read it on the engine and I put it on the hand, I look for a pen, I find the thuggery of an agency that knows me oooooooo, hello come here give me the pen, I write the number, tell me what are you doing ??? I’m here for the test, now I check the frame number, the vin, I read it, I read ………….. ***** does not match, simone you have a 5 in + on the documents of the motorization, but vaaaaaa !!! yes, what am I doing? nothing, correggimao, pull the line and put it on top, sometimes it happens, …… but I take care ???????? ……..do !!! . ok I do ……… done, luckily we realized, !!!! here it is my turn to approach the inge slowly, what should you do? ??? Reimmatricolazione vehicle of historical and collectious interest !!! I answer icon that agency and come ???? NONE I answer, aiaiiaiaiaiaiaiaiaiaia a, no aplpitur? do you do tourist? I add I look at it I like to make do, already ten years ago ‘I came without an agency, look at me and tell me, read the frame number and give me the documents ok, I get ready to win the vin, and him, but feel but where do you read it, ??? I want the number stamped on the frame! I answer, but it’s an American car hail vin on the dashboard, it replies, I do not care I want the number on the frame, she had to print it then she tells me I do not put myself in it seems to me an illegal practice that in the garage I start to print the frame number the other time you did it yourself, look at me and tell me, get out of the row and put in part, I obey, he goes upstairs with my documents, and then …. does not go down + the rest of the afila scanchera behind me! I see blind looks, I blocked everything, only one approaches me, asks that car and if and ammerreghennaaa and it seemed a mustanghe, and he loves mustanges, only and now badly accompanied and the inge does not arrive +, slowly after 30 minutes I see it coming, it comes in against me and tells me, I send it back home from a wagon, disassembles a mudguard to make a 5 cm by 10 cm and then comes here without a fender and we print the number, re-enter the visit in a week, have pity, do not disassemble the fender, and a mess, but why then? facilitate the stamp of the number, I go on 20 minutes and I can convince him to put it on the bridge and see to stamp it on the side spar without disassembling anything, comes a mechanic who does not know but who knows the inge looks at me shakes my head and helps me to convince him and done !!!! I propose to return for the second round of testing at 11, tells me that we never managed to have 50 + 50 km, I tell him if I can double check the car? he says yes but he does not kill himself, ***** the next volda I have to take on a flexible, she asks her for the lost time, he says 5 minutes, she says go though I do not want anything, caxxxxxxo oooo grazieeeeeeee, I go away like a slingshot, I’ll remember you, jump in motorization! I get fired by the exit because the gates of the entry are closed are not yet 11, I get back in line I ask? He tells me how I can already be there, I explain everything, he tells me, no, wait in the side and now wait for the end of the second round that has yet to start, but why? I say, the mechanic arrives from before he sees me in difficulty, says inge feeling, while there are no cars we put on the bridge that we see if they have done the right job, he agrees to do it, we raise the car on the bridge, then the mechanic says, feel inge try to take a stencil that tries to make only a stamp to see what effect it does, he accepts, then the mechanic says, feel inga already ‘that we are here to stamp it all the number no? the inge accepts, I look at the mechanic with a smile, he squeezes my eye, the number and printed, now the inge tells me, have we already done it all? there was only the number to print, for a moment I tell myself that I have already done everything, then I think about it, at the bottom of the car and ok, then I say no look we still have to do everything ‘make ttute the things you want the car and perfect, !!!!!! he seems happy with my honesty, I jump over to the mechanic and tell him, thank you and cheideo how much for the trouble says to leave paid a blanket in his name at the bar of motorization, thank you so much! The car was ok, and it was exciting when they gave me the documents and they told me go get the plates !!! When leaving the engine I can not say if I was happy + or tired + and stressed, I opened a hole in the stomach, I stopped at the bar to pay the bianchino and already that I was made a piadina ll’ombra with a view caddy, I get up, get in the car, put in d I head to the gate intent to run a house passing the gate slowly I hear three people talking about a lot that is no longer ‘, immediately I do not notice, then I understand that it was the bag that I put behind the hedge, I realize too late, I wanted to go back, but the car was traveling too well, drove straight home, I have only one regret, I will never know what the bag contained, unless it is still there when I go for the next car! last weekend I made about 150 miles with the car, calculating that passing in front of the speed cameras I am told that there is a gap of at least 10 km, or the fall marks 40 and the speed chek 50, the miles should also be +, I’m amazed, the car is great coming down from this you notice a huge difference going up the charger, I tried the thing Saturday, but what amazed me and that the difference is also found going from this to 300c! (standard of the world)! never what the sack contained, unless you still have it when I go for the next car! last weekend I made about 150 miles with the car, calculating that passing in front of the speed cameras I am told that there is a gap of at least 10 km, or the fall marks 40 and the speed chek 50, the miles should also be +, I’m amazed, the car is great coming down from this you notice a huge difference going up the charger, I tried the thing Saturday, but what amazed me and that the difference is also found going from this to 300c!
