Re: The Nuevo Spider, aka " Canadadan Where art thou?"

I must have missed the summit meeting, where it was decided that the Nuevo 124 Spider was Personna Non-Gratin on mira shores. You didn't miss any meetings, nor is that car necessarily a bad thing here - I do think that there will be plenty of resources for new Spider owners, and they really should ...

Re: New Mira

So the forum is just like our cars! :lol:
I bet we could distill that down to a mission statement. Handcrafted data, since 1994

Re: Wow fancy new place we've got here...

I like that the original "The FIAT Page" has been retained.
Me too. The plan is to integrate all the original articles into the 'Library' section, but I want to keep the original around as a reminder of the simpler days.... :)

Re: do you stake your pinion nuts

I've tried re-using Nylox nuts with a small dab of Loctite, and in some cases the Loctite seems to eat up the plastic, YMMV.......

Re: the new 124

The reality of life is that we either get a collaboration of Fiat and Mazda to design/build the new spider or there will be no new spider. .. that doesn't add up for me. Fiat is huge, it's not like Studebaker has risen from the ashes or something! Are they really so resource poor that they have to ...

Re: the new 124

After all the years they had to think about it, I think they should have been able to do something better than a rebooted Miata. I don't happen to like the looks of that car, and enough of the Miata comes through that I just can't get enthusiastic. It looks like somebody whacked it on the behind :) ...

Migration!

This thing has been ready to rock for a few days, and the stars finally aligned for Ross and myself to spend the time we needed to get the work done. I'm super happy with this software. I was resistant to the change at first, but when Brad stepped up and offered to tackle this, I was very grateful. ...
