Re: '82 X 1/9 REDUCED!!! $3000

Most East Coast X1/9s disappeared in a pile of rust twenty years ago. I've always appreciated the generosity of California based owners who modify their rust free cars sufficiently that they must be shipped East to be licensed and driven on the street. Location, location, location.

Re: Money does not equal intelligence

I see I can get into GE common stock really cheap today. Worked for the company for thirty years and have fond memories. Sentiment and "investment" don't belong in the same sentence. I'll hang onto a few old light bulbs instead.

Re: WTB: 124 Front Outer Anti-rollbar Bracket

I'm old enough to remember when their were called "anti-roll bars" also.

Re: How much is my car worth?

I sold my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan on CL last week in something less than an hour. The ad had been up on Craigs List for less than a day when the first buyer arrived on Saturday morning. A second buyer was fifteen minutes behind him. It was a well priced commodity. Anyone interested knew what it was...

Re: Electronic ignition conversion 73 Spider 1608.

The mounting bolt in one of the holes on the ignition module grounds the module to the heat sink. The heat sink mounting screws make the ground connection with the chassis. Make sure your mounting hardware is rust free to ensure a good ground path. The underside of the module is bare metal which pas...

Re: How much is my car worth?

Use the search function on Bring-A-Trailer to pull up the 128's that have sold there over the past five years. The spread on prices reflects both condition and location. Still can't believe Carl gave away Ovington's 128 wagon for $2,500.

Lancia Grand Voyager

Bought a year old Dodge minivan last week. Like the 2005 van it replaced, it recently served in a rental fleet. So it almost goes without saying that the manuals tire changing tools were missing. Went on YouTube for some basic operating info while I wait for my shipment of lightly used tools and man...

Re: Midget vs. Spider

A big factor in any hobby car choice is where you live. British and Italian sports cars are not evenly spread across the country. Like the ethnic groups to which they are related, each type tends to cluster in certain areas. The availability of local English or Italian trained mechanics and local ca...

Re: What is the weight of an iron cross wheel?

In 1999 I attended my first Freak Out in Fontana NC. A large contingent of the Vick family had come up from Texas. During the show Robert Vick, the senior member of the clan, walked by my car and noticed my new Compomotive rims. His first question was "Who made them?" His second question was "Are th...
