This "old" 1960s guy is with you.
But in a 101 Spider the mechanical fan robbed HP and worse--was noisy.
Unless you have a show car, get rid of them.
The aluminium ones look good, mount one on the wall of your shop, or den.
removing the fan might be ok in balmy BC summers but not so well in socal 405 traffic jam...
ive notice just removing the fan shroud will affect the cooling in rush hour traffic on a mod motor with more heat generated.
what next? electric water pump and axle driven alternator so it can read higher on dyno? lol
