Re: Pininfarina builds their own supercar

Jim, you probably sound like the guys who used to race horses and noted that the racing of the new fangled automobile was not very exciting to watch! But then again, I agree with you whole heartedly. I'm waiting for the SCCA to have spec Nissan Leaf racing series.

Re: When did this all happen?

A redone interior and new paint will definitely push a spider into high value territory. I rarely do either to my Fiats and don't get those prices for my Fiats.

Re: When did this all happen?

Retirement is great, Fruit of the loom T shirts in warm weather and Fruit of the Loom sweats in cold weather, all get tossed in the washing machine. Leaves more time for messing with cars.

Re: 75 spider build

You just screwed your ownership of the 75 spider with the purchase of a new one, you will now never want to drive that old clunker!

Joe....I think you put me in my place, which according to my wife is either washing dishes or putting the laundry away.

When did this all happen?

Apparently I fell asleep for 20 years and when I woke up I went to check Fiats on Craigslist and inflation had moved the price pointer. By my review of the local Craigslist ads: crap Fiats not worth even hauling to the dump are worth $2,000-$4,000 What I would call project cars that are clearly inco...

I'm the kind of guy more interested in the racer with the hand hammered body and triple SUs poking out the hood.

Re: Small electrical relay?

Mr. Margio, I do indeed remember you and thanks for the kind words. As noted above, that relay is not in a normal spot for later spiders and in fact that old style relay (metal can rather than plastic cube) would not be normal for your year spider. If you check the wiring diagram for your year you w...
