    OLD 124 - Back to basics

    As a bit of a background I recently sold my 131 sports sedan: http://www.performanceforums.com/for...s-Sedan/page52

    Reasonable skid in that video, 5/7.

    Speaking of skids, I look forward to seeing this in a few weeks, skidding. Take my like!

      So what are the plans? Well really, to just have heaps of fun doing sprints, hillclimbs, bitumen motorkhanas and being able to jump in the car and drive whenever I want. In my 20+ years messing with these things I have amassed some cool stuff. This motor has done a lot of work so I'm building up a hot 2litre with stuff I have lying around; big valve head, mahoosive Wade cams, Abarth manifold, 2 litre bottom end etc etc. Will go together with high comp (~10.8:1) good quality cast pistons, forged rods and some 45 DCOEs. Will be putting the motor together with the help of some mates.

        Nice move! And looks like a nice thing too.

          Carbs cost more than EFI and are rarely even close to the same power delivery or driving quality.

            Yeah but webers are cool and all is forgiven with the induction noise they make.

                First things I had to do were to get rid of all the stickers and put a nice, period wheel on it. Always been a massive fan of the Momo Prototipo, much better!

                      Odd question, how wide is your garage? If we build our next place it wont have room for a shed, so I'm resigned to having a workable garage and yours looks pretty useful.

                      Ps new bus looks great!

                        Saw the thread title and got excited thinking you bought an AC, or even a Spider. But this is just as cool.
                        Didn't realise that's a factory colour, one of the guys at Car Torque had a 131 wagon that colour, I always though it was something he came up with since I've never seen another 131 that colour. Looks abit softer than the green used on the Stratos road cars.
