      Nobody's gonna comment? This is good stuff. AMC will always be the underappreciated little company that could. And considering the dominating force of the big three they did a damn fine job and...

      The way I see it, the heads are the key to that engine's flexibility. They are able to flow well at high rpm despite the smaller valves, and have good velocity down low. The 11:1 compression ratio...

      Cutouts have been considered, but they would be too loud. It just wouldn't feel right. If I were to enhance the sound, i'd like to retain some level of refinement. I've done the super loud and...

      Poll: An exhausting poll

      I believe that as long as I have a car with a 12 cylinder engine that is presently quite quiet, there will always be the question in my head of what if I uncorked the exhaust side a bit to make a bit...

      It was probably someone's first attempt at doing something of the sort. I'll bet they figured... "Well, if I/we F this up, at least it's just a rio.".

      Sweet. I hope the next owner keeps it equally clean and doesn't mod it out. It's so rare to find them stock(ish) and clean like this.



      Agreed. Not surprised to find it was repainted though. ...

      K-K-K-KIA! Ya know, like CH-CH-CH-CHIA. But instead of adding water you add money and it grows into something peculiar.

      Traditional RRs were too stuffy for the hotshot cocaine-snortin' businessman and they needed something a bit more contemporary. Cant really smell Connolly when your nose is plugged with snow; the...

      Good stuff man, good stuff. I love me a lucid and unbiased write-up on the ownership of an old(ish) car. Chances are i'll probably never be a saab owner, but I dig them. How do you know you have a...

      Nice carb! I had a street demon 575 vac on my old '74 bug with the 1915 turbo. Simple, good build quality, and smooth. Well, at least at first on the latter point until i got boost crazy and had a...
