Default 78 carrera 7m "nasty habit"

I bought a carrera 7m ss? Couple years ago been dragging my feet collecting parts to build a "proper" bbc for it. The p.o seemed sure of its herratige sayin it was from thunder row or thunder alley in Miami. Also thar it was featured in a boating magizine years ago, was carrerra part of thunder row/alley in late 70s? And does anyone possibly recognze the "nasty habbit"? I bought it by chicago n he had owned it since the mid 90s

Carrera was never in Thunder row (NE 188St) but never the less it's an machine. They were in Medley, FL which is an industrial city in Miami, FL . One of the best if not the best 24 ft boat to date. It handles big water like if it was a bigger boat. Carrera won many but many National & World championships. If it's a 78, it's one of the first first ones as that around the time Humberto Picon started Carrera powerboats.

Absolutely correct! I have owned 2 Carrera's 7MM. They were built in Medley. One of the original drug hauling boats of the 80's. Jaws and Panteras other local favorites.... I jspent 2 1/2 years building my last Carrera which I bought from the original owner in Minnesota. Bought from righ here Offshore Only classifieds.......
