Re: Money does not equal intelligence

The only thing impressive to me about people spending huge sums on cars is the fact that they may have relatively huge sums to spend in a way that seems a bit optional to me. I am not impressed by such things. Not judging actually...just doesn't impress me. Doing it yourself, learning & then doing i...

Re: Money does not equal intelligence

you don't need one of those shows....I talk to people I know about various work they've had done on their cars and it blows my mind what people spend on cars. I guess I've vastly taken for granted the ability to do almost everything myself. (not that I'm restoring old muscle cars or doing most thing...

Re: Vacuum port

You could also run the distributor that was on the '71 using a Pertronix electronic conversion. The '79-up type distributor could be recurved also, but I've not heard about anyone doing that for a long time. I had (not sure where it is now) a DHSA that had the secondary converted. it was better, but...

Re: Electronic ignition conversion 73 Spider 1608.

It is also likely you'll need something to act as a spacer because your new coil will probably be a slightly lesser diameter than the Marelli. Anyone-Should there be a resistor for the cool? Seems i found SMW conflicting info on whether it's needed with that coil. If you end up with a bouncy tach (u...

Re: Thoughts on this craigslist ad?

It reminds me of the '74 Spider I got as my replacement for my wrecked first one. Bright red, bad paint over original dark green. Eventually I repainted it the original color & did all sorts of other stuff to it (not all advisable stuff). If this car really is free of any significant rust, it looks ...
