What is the price, or are you simply looking for a loving adoptive home?

Re: TORRINO

The dash is straight outta Russia. I got one of those for my 74 Sedan, not sure if I’m going to use it, but it seems to nicely accommodate 124 Sport gauges

Re: Some pics of fatrat

I had an 1800 once that experienced a thrust washer falling out...driving symptom prior to checking play was an annoying metallic sound of the flywheel touching the lower dust shield under certain load conditions. I could imagine clutch engagement being one of the load conditions. Nice you found it!

Re: Garage building thoughts, aesthetics & ultimate shop layout

James, originally I had thought about a subterranean build as well. Now, I think I probably would have or could have. We have excavated SO much for this. Ultimately it will be nice & the benefits of leveling other parts of the yes will be nice, but it has been (and remains) a lot of work. Behind the...

Re: Garage building thoughts, aesthetics & ultimate shop layout

there was locally, rather famously, a bodywork guy who routinely had a small hole cut in a mask to smoke a cigarette while sanding/priming. and, maybe no one else gets as excited to see some progress, but now I have a helpful thing (roof shingles....metal was nixed by the boss) and a sorta helpful &...

Re: Goofy Craigslist

If it keeps the total BS posts off of CL then great. I think it’s time for something to replace it. That’s a bummer because I’ve been enjoying CL (and thusly annoying my wife by bringing home bikes, cars, tools, etc) for wrk over a decade. As I mentioned, FB marketplace has the potential to be great...

Re: Paint and body shop in GA/AL/TN/NC/SC?

oh, no, oops,I was confusing. It's not the same car, but it's very much the same mechanical recipe (2L block, 1.8 head, IDFs, "old school" suspension, wide wheels). My old green car ended up with Ernie Tipton in AL. What I meant was the panda car is similar to drive, just not as shiny & dark green. ...

Re: Paint and body shop in GA/AL/TN/NC/SC?

Brad, I believe you’re right. Maybe get an assistant so you can have some garage drama along with some nice vignettes to talk trash about each other. That is kind, Jim. There was a LOT of wet sanding that went into the 74. Indeed it was all done over the course of a particularly not-humid May in 199...
