the current Mille Miglia, and a 1954 Olds Rocket 88

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In 1977 the Brecia auto club started a commemorative rally of the once famous race. To qualify for acceptance you have to enter a car that is the same year, make, and model as a car that participated in one of the original races. Most of the original cars were Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes, Alfa Romeo, BMW, and Fiat.

 Believe it or not, in 1954 two crazy Italians decided to enter an Oldsmobile Rocket 88 Holiday Coupe.

And this year, Dave and Vince decided to enjoy the race. Without buying the most expensive cars, they were limited to the available and affordable… and here’s their 88.

Dave in California found this car, a qualifying car (check), documented the ownership history (check), fixed it up (check), had it inspected and certified by FIVA (check), submitted an application for the 2014 Mille Miglia (check).

You also have to provide proof of the ownership history of your car. Dave and Vince purchased their car from a lady named Donna, pictured here. Her grandmother purchased the car new in Daytona Beach in 1954, passed it on to her son, a Navy pilot, who passed it on to his daughter, Donna.

Starting May 9th, they’ll be racing, and you can stay up to date on the Olds with their Facebook page
