Thanks for the invite. Just purchased a "field car" that has not been driven in four years and sat in the desert. Hope I'm capable of handing this challenge, a 1978 Romeo. It appears to have mechanical fuel injection. The motor turns and the oil is clear. I'm going to take the tank out immediately and seal it. It's canary yellow but paint is toast. Top is toast, seats are gone. Steering wheel is salvagable, minimal rust, (spare tire well). Mileage shows 45K, but perhaps that has turned over already. underside doesn't appear to have been dinged and seems to have an undercoat. Checked the air filters (2) and they seem good. Motor turns. Thanks.

Small problem; When I click on the member profile I don't see "send a private message" nor send an e-mail. Any suggestions?

Not very good with the computer, sorry. I posted this message on top thread. Thanks for the reply. I have taken the car to bare interior and luckily have not found any rust. (california car then NM car.) All Italian parts on car and I believe the miles to be 45K original. I'm trying to get the muffler (s) off. It has a catalytic converter on it (California)
and an air pump which I have taken off. I was wondering if I just had a straight muffler if it would be better for the engine. Well, thanks for the reply.

Yes, an easy way to narrow the searches is to use Google for searching the "Parts for Sale and Wanted" forum by adding "site:abc..." to the search term. For example, searching for "gtv tail light" would look like this:
Code:

Hello from Louisville, KY.

Sold my Porsche 911 a few years ago...just before that stupid scalper bubble. Life has stabilized to the point I can find another "project"...I think!

On my short list is a 1750 or 2000 Berlina. Just watching them now and getting a feel of what's out there and what it goes for. Been seeing a lot of very shiny, fresh imports at premium prices. Frankly, I'm totally cool with a scruffy '74 with big bumpers as far as that goes. Tired of looking through e-Bay and Craigslist and figure this is about the best place to find one genuinely and honestly changing hands.

Thanks and cheers

Justin

Hi,

How do you create a thread for a new topic? Don't want to hijack anyone's post.

Cheers,

Sam

Welcome,Sam. Go to the appropriate section, click "New Topic" or "Start New Thread". (I don't know about the app thing - I only have a dumb phone.)

Hello-

For some unknown reason the 'BB' decided I needed a new 'pass-word'...after investing over an hour(an hour I'll never get back) trying to use the new 'password' w/out success it seemed easier to re-register w/a new name/password/avatar & info.
I used to be "slam105" & had been on the ARBB for several years. So here I go w/a "new start".

Regards

Help!

I have tried several times correct this problem concerning my username. I am trying to redo my password for my username alfabits. The ABB sent me instructions for renewing an older, unused username alfalust.
I need instructions for renewing my password for my username “alfabits”.

I am a paid “Senior Member" and I can’t tell you how frustrating this is to keep getting the same canned reply for the wrong username. This has been a problem since the BB required a more complex password.

Username: alfabits
email address: gekraus at comcast dot net

Thank you
George Kraus
