Re: When did this all happen?

Well, my intent was to post pictures of the interior, but I have failed to figure that out :( When you create a post just scroll down to “attachments” and add the pictures. The "drag and drop" feature is VERY nice n easy...I minimize the web and documents folder to see both on one screen and drag/d...

Re: 1985.5 Radiator [Solved]

Had ours fixed at a local shop where all theydo is radiators. 2 geezers surrounded by hundreds of radiators and a work bench. Really enjoyed talking with them... they hang out all day, don't want to retire and enjoy getting dirty they said. Happy to give them my money and sent a few buddies that way...

Re: When did this all happen?

I bought my koni yellows new for $200 (all 4) recently... think i did alright ;) . There's a guy in philly (an area i don't want to go to) selling an 80 FI, a bit of rust on the body that "runs beautifully" for $2,000. Contacted him to find out that he can't start it because the last time it ran so ...

Suspension on the horizon, anyone in need?

I've got the koni yellow's in boxes staring at me, planned for the winter project. Figured I'd ask now if anyone needs the OE springs or shocks? Free to pick up or cost of shipping, though I really don't want to pack/ship it...hopefully someone near philly can put them to use. If not I've got a weld...

I think the bumpers alone are worth the asking price. I didn't know Fiat made an automatic spider back then and who cares if it has a "rebuilt" title. Wrong coast....as usual. I can see the conversation..."honey, I would sell it but I don't know anything about computers and how to write ads. That's...

Re: Midget vs. Spider

I just popped over to the thread on the mg forum the op posted to...after much propoganda about bad steel and interference engines the OP bought a mgb. Funny it transitions to "get yourself an extra timing chain" as the first recommendation lol. I still want an mg someday, only because it's my stupi...

Re: Performance upgrades

That's one purty motor. Thought this snarky boy racer article was a hoot. YMMV.
