    I passed on a twin turbo seven series built by a race car driver who built experimental engines for Sirkorsky Helicoptor. Deep regret. I did purchase his 73CSi with an engine he built for the track. Stripped the car including engine and 5sp. I babied it at High Performance Driver's Schools and had a rockin good time.

    Looking at this tomorrow or Saturday. So few period cars show up here, it is a problem for me when they do, even with whitewashed grill and diving-board rubber. Can't wait to see what "engine has been replaced" means. Anyone recognize those wheels? I need something to play around with re metal work, bumpers, etc. before trying on coupe. Yes, I'm ignoring the asking price.

    OK, pretty much what I expected, but I wasn’t brave enough to shoot him the real number. When the ad, owner’s description, the location, and the car are all telling different stories, and you’re in a very rough part of town with a language barrier, pit bulls and a pretty solid belief the real reason the car sat involved the owner’s incarceration, it’s time to thank him for showing it and find a graceful exit.

    Probably a good idea..as to the wheels, I think they are 14" Fughlies. Fortunately pretty rare. Lancia, maybe, had something similar on the Beta, or am I dreaming...?
