This section has been revised over time, as it's been over a year since it's inception!
Courtney Waters was a high-school student in the process of
improving his 1970 Spider, and keeping
it roadworthy on a shoestring budget. He started a series of
articles that explain his efforts, and the
education he's recieved while working on these cars.
Well, Courtney is now a College Student, and much has changed! What remains the same is his no-nonsense style, and I encourage you to check out his section! (revised 4/28/97)
We have a photo session that has more entertainment value than anything... A long time ago, Courtney & his friend Jason helped me strip a '79 Spider that I bought for parts. Our homespun efforts at auto wrecking are shown here as well.
Added 12/14/95 is a Photo section on the rare Fiat 130 models, with source material from a dedicated Reader in Australia.
Added 3/10/96 is a new section of old magazine ads. If you have any submissions, please let me know and we'll build this section.
Added 8/9/96 is an article written by Thad Kirk, regarding the care & feeding of the dual-point distributor. Unlike Thad, I think Marelli Electronic is the way to go (from late models or the almost non-existent Marelli Plex system), but this article is well-written and informative.
Added 11/22/02 (sheesh!) is a scanned-in Road test of the 1974 124 CC Coupe, from the 12/74 edition of Road & Track
In short, the plans for this area are wide open. Keep your eyes on it!
