Not Lancia, but millers
OK, they aren't Lancias, but they are still examples of superb engineering.
Talking about Millers, the great American race car - a total of about 150 made, but was the beginning in the US of DOHC straight eight (from 1920 or so). Miller's shop foreman was Fred Offenhauser, and the Millers became straight fours, as the Off engine, dominating Indy races into the 1970s.
Each year they (and other race cars) gather at America's oldest race track, up in Milwaukee. Been going up since 1996 to see them. Pete Vack of Veloce Today decided to run a short story on them, which you can find here: velocetoday.com/millers-at-milwaukee/
