jamieandthemagi Did you guys ever use the 75 Twinspark engine I gave you ?

nda9h Hi Scabbystudent,
thanks, i now have compomotive rallye wheels in 8x15 with offset 10mm mounted on my unmodified car (also from a ford), i think therse are still about 3-4cm too far inside for a GTAM conversion. Perhaps i could get a set of 8x15 Compomotive ML (available in (negative) offset -24mm) or some panasports in same size. Ive seen a picture from a british yellow GTAM replica in "vintage racecar" from june 2006, this car seems to have these wheels and also looks very nice.

scabbystudent to be honest i'm not sure - they are Compomotive Superlights which were (apparently) originally fitted to a group 4 Ford Escort rally car!

nda9h Hi "scabbystudent",
just wanted to repeat my question for your gtams wheel size and offset... would be great if you could post it here!

Thanks, Thomas

scabbystudent We are not all Oxford students, and those that are have not had any help from home - and we certainly would not have put in the hours that we did if we werent enjoying ourselves!!!

The engine number for the car is AR01512∗81984 , if anyone can point us to a thread that will decode it for us (or if anyone can tell us what it is!) that would be great.

Sorry?

I thought I was being charitable and at the same time playing along with the usual stereotype of Oxbridge students, but I suppose I failed to make my subtle and feeble attempt at humour sufficiently transparent and smiley-filled.

My apologies for this then.

Furthermore, I have nothing but admiration and slight envy for the efforts of these 'kids' (hence my comment about my own student time being wasted on beer and chatting up girls).

So to reiterate: Excellent work chaps. I think you have managed, in a very short time, to make something extremely nice from something extremely sad. I am certain it has taken lots of weekends and evenings of hard labour but go on - admit it - you had fun as well!

Now enjoy the car.

Anyway - excellent piece of work chaps. I wish I had friends at school who would join me in a similar endeavour but unfortunately we spent all our money on beer and chatting up girls - whatever little money there was.

The list of people who have freely donated parts reads like a Whos Who of the UK vintage racing and Alfa world, who were obviously delighted by such enthusiasm and no doubt hopeful that one day some of them would return as paying customers (for the cynics amongst you). Leave your chip on your shoulder if you really must, Kroehl, but you demean yourself by doing so.
