Spanish Galleon AA/FC of Al Arriaga who was one of the few Hispanic funny racers, holding up the banner until the Pedregon Brothers came along. Arriaga was a low buck racer from Arizona, but his “Spanish Galleon” machines always looked and ran great. Al had raced a Pro Stock Camaro before buying the “MOB” AA/FA Fiat. He continued to race the Fiat under the “MOB” name but with different paint jobs. Arriaga also kept the Donovan Hemi that came with the car. Arriaga eventually bought this Monza body for the chassis and named the car the “Spanish Galleon.”
