The Mazzy Engine Returns

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We teased you with some images back in August of our 1976 Maserati Merak engine just as we were completing the rebuild. Well next week we’ll be introducing her back to the body shell once again as she gets fitted back in ready for the final stages of rebuild.
