Wanted to share this story with you guys. My father-in-law raced a 142 back in the 1970s and after a brief racing career, he sold the car, never to see it again. A couple of years ago, I decided to hunt it down and see if I could find it. You'll enjoy the ending.

That's pretty darn cool you found it, cooler yet that it's still racing!

Quite the story for sure. Hard to believe you even found it, unbelievable that it's never been wrecked/crushed and is still racing.
