I need one of these big ol' Deuce and a Quarters - I don't have a garage for my Corvair, so I could just park it in the trunk! lmao image Seriuusly, cars like that are a dying breed, and Carmen is one of the nicest examples I've seen in quite a while.

About

What can u say about the old Deuce and a Quarter. "Carmen" sat in a barn for 15 years in Maine then made her way here to New York. She was actually sold to a dealer B4 I could buy her and I thought she was gone for good but the guy returned her because there was no way to certify the 74K odometer reading.

Luck O the Irish I got to take her home

There still doesn't seem to be a huge interest in these super large cars. It's too bad because the big Buicks Mercurys & Cadillacs are pure American Excess...the way it should be.

Specs

430-4
225 inches long
0-60 in her own sweet time

Factory Options

Freaking Ice Box Cold A/C. Interesting Cigarette Lighters in both front seats. Ashtrays galore, Tilt Wheel and a Kickin' (non-working) AM Radio!

Mods

She had a stock single exhaust when I got her. I had that tossed and replaced with a set of Dual glasspacks with three inch pipes. Sounds like 10 Harleys on CrystalMeth
