Re: (NOT MINE & WON'T BE) 124 Sedan on CA CL

oh, noooooo.

Sorry, that was my poor use of the English language, I meant the checkered past of the 85 that Mel & I own. Now that you mention it, yours had it's own demons. Well, I maintain they are worth the hassles.

Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

I rather like the black rims & hubcaps. My first 124 Spider had steel rims & hubcaps, though I suppose they were intended to be a cream color.

Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

ah, yes, I thought the same thing. That's not picky. That's 101 with any car, isn't it? I figured it was indexed, but as a detail it was skipped for editing. I am not paying 12 grand for a car with a driveshaft vibration! ;)

Re: 131 Gearbox with Abarth shift extension

very interesting info, and disheartening about the vaporization of 131s in general. In a similar project fashion, but for different reasons (ie, easy of fitment, not for tremendously more power), I would love a vastly shortened 124 sport extension for placement in a 124 sedan, as an alternative to t...

Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

there was one thrown in, but somehow it seemed more supportive of the cars than the usual ignorant hackneyed joke.

Re: (NOT MINE & WON'T BE) 124 Sedan on CA CL

We know own an auto FI Spider and I concur it is a wonderful cruiser. With a 3.9 diff, it would be interesting as an urban cruiser, for sure. Ours may be the cousin with a checkered past of Andy's exceptional '85.

Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

exactly! I was watching it in between quick jaunts to the kitchen with a snake to clean out a stopped up sink drain. Good times in the DIY Granju world. Seriously, I thought it was a good show. Of course people like us can pick apart the details, but it was nice to see the car treated with the respe...

Re: 131 Gearbox with Abarth shift extension

ahh...thanks. You had me at the European/world commonality of it. This is a minor reason I had not yet put a 131 gear box in a (non-racing in my case) 124 of some sort. My friend to whom I referred apparently has wizard-like fabrication skills, so I don't doubt he could make it happen, but that's a ...

Re: 131 Gearbox with Abarth shift extension

Talking about that extension recently with a friend, I wonder if there would be any significant interest in functional (ie, for “go”, racing, etc, not an aesthetic copy) reproductions of the Abarth extension.
