G'day Windy,

Had a look at your video...WOW!!...I have never ever seen such a beaut collection of restored cars in my life.
The antique cars are a marvel...the restoration process would certainly be expensive,extensive and a labour of love !!
Would be kinda interesting to know where they purchased the "wrecks" from,eh?!!

Thanks for posting that.

Cheers,
W

Hello Wira, The collection belongs to Jorge Nicolini, the owner of a renowned brand of spaghetti in Peru, this guy has been restoring antique classic cars since decades ago.

I like the 50's cars as the Chevrolet Bel Air 1955 ! ! was restoring a car like that abroad, but never ended. Sold in the middle of the process, before going back to Peru

Getting an old car for restoration is the most patient process ever done. Options are online advertising or in the provinces.

He should try to build a replica of the 1956 Chrysler Norseman since the one and only is rusting away in the belly of the Andrea Doria.

It's a really great collection. Too bad it's a little out of the way, but still, it's worth the drive out there. There was one car that was unique in the world, and a few others that were part of only a handful of survivors.

I was told that Nicollini bought up a lot of cars from people who lost everything during the land reform. He was the right guy, in the right place, at the right time.
