      I wish I could do that in the Fiat 126. The exhaust sounds funny enough to be entertaining, but then I'd hear all the other worrying noises from self-destructing commie hardware, so... Radio to 11...

      In my opinion really small cars tend to be noticed by non-car persons and kids; and usually the response are smiles and thumbs-up.

      So the cars I nominate are: the original Mini, the original Fiat...

      I sincerely never heard of this difference; and I do believe it's the thickness that plays a role; after all the material specs aren't that different for steel and stainless. I changed the exhaust...

      Oh my God. I cannot imagine what my Fiat 126 would look like after their treatment :laugh:

      But all joking aside: Their job is always truly a work of art. I am still going through the pictures...

      I'm IN for the pics! :)

      Nothing to add that hasn't been said already; except maybe to stay at the Grimsel Hospiz if you can. Not cheap, but it is a really nice Hotel with an exquisit restaurant....

      It took me a while to reply; I tried to find as much information as I could. The Innocenti Minitre/De Tomaso Mini used basically the same frame as the original mini, with the rear subframe being the...

      :D

      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...

      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...
