Very nice condition!Is that a CD changer under the cubby-hole?Good idea to have the exhaust-end pointing downwards,when I replaced my Spiders rear box the tip was sticking too far out.I stupidly cut the tip in line with the bumper,now I have a lot of gas going into the boot!
Best Regards

Yes, the original Radiomobile stereo is still fitted (but not wired up) - there is a head unit under passenger side dash, with cassette player under the tilt-down faceplate - with a 6-CD changer in the boot. There are 2 speakers built into an upholstered bench seat, which replaced the original bench seat base. Must admit, it's hard to hear with top down unless cranked right up! I'd rather listen to engine note and cam and carb noise anyhow.
As to exhaust, yes, I learned that straight tips will not scavenge the fumes away from car correctly, and lots of fumes enter car via boot as a result. Only downside is contact with pavement, etc when going up steep drives. You just have to take it easy...

Here's Mine...

The first pic is of the yellow '74 I (AR 3044441bought near SF, CA for $150. It was a beater, but it ran with a little work. I sadly sold it before moving back to the Chicago area in 2001. It now appears to have been "dismantled" according to the CA DMV.

The red '74 is the one I just rescued from being parted out. It hasn't run in 10-15 years, and has quite a bit of surface rust from unfinshed bodywork, plus some real rust in the usual places. It is otherwise very complete and original, with good bumpers and many other bits.

Good looking spider mate! Question, who owns the Peugeot?

Again the proud owner of the White Dragon and a 2010 Jetta TDI

Hey Guys.

I know you all have seen photos of this car before,but only in the workshop.
Got a call from a magazine guy who wanted to do a story on it.
????????????????????????????????
After thinking about it for a while,it was decided to give it a polish and do it.
Its been over 7 years since this car saw the road.Spent over 4 years in an Alfa Romeo dealers showroom,and over 3 years in my workshop.
Well,the car started,unstuck the clutchplate (easy this time),brakes worked etc.
Drove it about 15 kms to the photo shoot.
These pics are taken by me,but the photographer took 102 pics.
He will send me a professional CD of the pics so I can share them with you guys.
Driving the car was as I remembered 7+ years ago.
Not a rattle from anywhere.Great power.A joy to drive.
Drove the car nearly 100 kms that day,then drove it home,changed the wheels and put it in its box.Box pictures will come soon.
Ok,I know it sounds crazy to put in in storage again,but it has to be done.No time to enjoy it still.Just knowing its there,and remembering how it drove,is priceless at the moment.
More pics + storys later.
Car is known as = Wifes Eternity Ring.

1972 105 GT Veloce 2000
