      Nice. I'm 6' 2" and I have a Fiesta ST with moonroof and I like the size. The trunk isn't huge, but with the rear seats folded you can fit most reasonable items. The only dimensions that make me...

      Obvious answer is El Camino with a 4-speed because it weeds out the unnecessary people in your life. Any year works, but most of the cheap ones are ugly.

      Another option is what I do, the...

      :thumbup:

      My dad had a 73 euro 3.0CS when I was growing up. His wasn't tuned great, so I had to keep on the throttle to idle at stoplights. Loved the sound.

      I didn't think it felt too slow...

      Here is the list of books from the FSAE forums. The big one is Race Car Vehicle Dynamics (RCVD).

      Ugh, absolutely love your Fiats. Only Fiat experience I have is with an early X1/9 (that my friend thinks I should buy from him...)

      That guy seems decent enough - used to own and S as a teen and bought another that his wife isn't putting up with. Just a dragging brake caliper too. That being said, I don't see how MD would be a...

      I see these running around Dearborn quite often. The sound is impressive, even under low load conditions. Definitely more of an American sound than I would have guessed, given the flat-plane crank...

      It's become expected haha. Took my 84 GTI out today. 100 miles, no issues. But no Alfa sound!



      Which one was it? I'm looking for a 164S. It's the best 164 in my opinion. I had a 24V LS...

      Despite the mechanical work that you had to perform, it looks like you're doing pretty well with your $1k 5-door 900. Good work :thumbup:

      The Milano is running and has 1100 miles on the rebuilt engine. I took it down to the tail of the dragon over the weekend for a shakedown.

      Way to take action and at least attempt to improve your situation. As always, I'm jealous of trips like this. Been working feverishly to get the Milano ready for a CO trip starting Friday...

      Nice thread - I go pretty far out of my way to see as much beautiful scenery as I can. Often, I do it in somewhat nice (or fun) cars. Still figuring out how to take photos, but I enjoy the traveling...

      Good thoughts. I am trying to decide between:


      Shell swap
      Pay for restoration
      Buy tools and restore myself
      Sell car and buy a fresh one

      Strut towers, rear beam mounts, and front engine mounts are all fine. Like you mentioned, I have noticed things bubbling up from the body filler.

      Rust repair - is this car worth it?

      I'd like to start thinking about repairing the rust on my GTI. I had the car stored outside for 2 years, then drove it through a winter, and the car is getting rustier than I am ok with. Since I...
