      Other than that, nothing to add. Even the non-synced, notoriously weak gearbox in the 126 is taking all...

      Since I've been driving the Fiat 126 it's been N->2nd->1st. That gearbox has no synchronized 1st gear, and on top of that, the gear wheels are like 4mm wide. A couple of grinds too much and there's...

      I know nothing about classic minis to be honest (except that I love them), so I cannot really judge. What about the engine? Especially the early DeTomasos had a 4-pot 1270cc; was that one carried...

      :laugh:

      These were basically a classic Innocenti mini underneath, right?

      :D He definitely still knows what to do in a car to make everyone go :sly::eek::):D

      His interviews from the group B era (when he drove for Lancia) he gave in "Fin-talian" were hilarious!

      It never rains in... NK!

      Looks still quite good; I cannot see much rust on them.



      I would SOOOOOOO love to take one of these and take it to a Mercedes-Benz dealer in Stuttgart :D

      Indeed; just like the 960 with the multilink rear suspension :) I like this, can't wait to see one IRL.

      I'd get sick going through this routine for every semi I'd be overtaking ;)

      It seems like a nice thing to do, except you expect being passed with a speed differential of 100kph and more. And they...

      Had to do this just for giggles:

      27hp @ 29.402mpg (currently) = 0.918 hp per mpg.

      Hey!

      I had a quick look at your pictures; I see the bore loking bad. You'll going to burn oil as long as you don't get the bores resurfaced; as you noted. Still, mine was in a far worse state snd...

      They can be, when there are 2 lanes per direction, and these are separated by a barrier of some sort. And of course, this needs to be seen at some point:...

      I did a bit of research: it is an unrestricted portion of the B2. In this case 2 things have to be taken in consideration:


      Was she really faster than 130kph?

      I love the looks of the 147, especilly the GTA version. It is over the top and yet still very well proportionated.

      Now what about the 145? I still see one in metallic yellow and it looks and...

      Nice thread. :thumbup:

      That e30: could be an original 320is; although it would make no sense in rebadging it as a Schnitzer. A 320is would have a 2 liter version of the S14 M3 engine and about...
