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

Mudge --- you're selling it too cheap in my opinion. Anyone interested in an X1/9 needs to snap this car up. Knowing him, the car is extremely well sorted out.

Re: Thousands of new mirafiori members

It's not that Fiat can't read the US market, but that Fiat can't read the market and is building unreliable vehicles. No company can survive offering three derivatives of the same model (500, 500L and 500x), a retro 124 Spider with the exact same motor used in their other three models, and have the ...

Re: '75 124 Spider, Reno

I saw that one too. Price seems a tad high given the condition inside and how long it has been sitting. Happy birthday - hope you get the X sorted out! I got my 71 started after removing and troubleshooting the wiring harness issues including removing the burned wiring. You get the trans in your car...

Re: 1608 Engine Rebuild

I took my 2 liter motor to them with the new pistons. They bored the motor to match the pistons and it took about a week. They were quick. You can always provide them a date that you need it back. They will let you know if they can do it. I only had one very lengthy project, but that was because the...

Re: craigslist question

Yes...a bunch of Craigslist idiots and this is typical. People are now posting at the top of the ad "IF THIS AD IS STILL ON CRAIGSLIST, THE CAR IS STILL AVAILABLE". I hear it helps. My favorite is a woman who wanted a CarFax report on a 40 year old car I was selling. I informed her that you can't ge...

Re: Credit Card Fraud

Thanks for being on top of it. I spent the last 10 years as an accredited financial counselor and credit card theft is a rampant problem. I spent a lot of time helping people who were victims.

Carquest Compact Starters

Word of advice: Carquest Auto Parts/Advance Auto Parts carried a "compact" starter for the Fiat Spiders. It is not as small as a gear reduction starter, but way smaller than the massive stock starters. It also had a lifetime guarantee. I bought one - it died. I took it back. After two months of tryi...

Re: 32 ADFA carb question

Thanks Brad. The fuel mixture screw is stripped out completely, so the base is shot. I found a 32 ADFA on a Spider at a PicknPull today. The carb base is identical to the one I had, but the fuel mixture screw is night and day different. I am rebuilding it tomorrow, so I'll check out the Student guid...
