    Hi,

    There were a number of Wood & Pickett Sheer Rovers. There was one black one with Wolf Wheels, complete wood trim, four headlights and from the sound, had obviously been enhanced. I had seen it both before and after the revolution and have tried to track it down in recent years to no avail. Could you have meant this one ?

    Hi,

    One of the things I enjoy is checking up on restoration projects. As you have seen in this thread, despite unbelievable odds, our guys keep their cars on the road under sometimes daunting circumstances. You already saw in an earlier post the blood sweat and tears that went into the restoration of a Shelby Mustang and the celebration we had afterwards. These pictures of a Alfa Montreal being restored by my good friend Ali Nouri. He has dedicated at least five years to get this car back on the road. He is a technical genius and has his own factory manufacturing a multitude of goods and keeps this car in the back of his workshop were he woks on It during his spare time.

    Hi,

    A second gentleman is a gentleman by the name of Bemani whose passion is French cars. He is the go to man and has restored everything from Matra Simca Bagheera to Citroen SM. I had the opportunity to stop by his shop and see him put the engine of Citroen CX Prestige back together with an original DS waiting its turn.

    Hi,

    Pun duly noted. Just wondering, would you by chance have any pictures of the car you are mentioning ? Or any other cars from the past you could share here ? If you remember, we had another friend who shared some pre-revolution (and post revolution) pictures of a Dino, Interceptor etc. By the way another shot of an RR in rally action.

    Best Regards,

    Ramin

    Hi,
    Given your own taste in cars, good taste seems to run in the family. We have been working a number of years to document many of the 'special' cars that came into Iran prior to 79 before they are lost forever in time. Any inputs would be most welcome.

    Best Regards,

    Ramin
