    This thing has the coolest induction noise ever. Nice car with plenty of time and money spent on the bits that matter.

    One of the coolest cars around. Reckon it's awesome that a young bloke has spent as much time and money on an old piece of Italian history as Sam has on this thing. It goes like stink and sounds as only an Italian can.

    Its a credit to Sam to have been so bloody determined & focussed with this thing. Im not sure, but I think he could have built a space shuttle instead.

    Thanks blokes.

    Of course being a project car it will probably never be finished but I hae owned it for over 12 years now so there'll be no selling it.

    Cameron - Definately will be at Wheels on Wide Bay. Really need to get my entry in. Was hoping to have the cage in by then but that will probably have to wait until after Leyburn.


    Datzed - not sure if I have a high res version of that pic. Will have to get into contact with who took the photo.

    After the weekend the RHS of the engine bay doesn't look as pretty. 3/4 stuck open throttle + stupid driver refusing to come in = brake fluid overflow and damaged paint.

    Probably right the first time. It's a Fiat after all, not much metal left in it!

    Looks great Sam, even though I haven't actually seen it in ages!!

    Datzed - I am tracking down a high res copy.

    No1200 - Yeah, I really have Phil to thank in getting many aspects of this car sorted.

    Cal - Usually the third weekend in August.

    Tremolo - this may or may not be the car on the rev limiter on a private test track. Contrast/brightness may need to be adjusted.
