New to your group today. I currently have a '77 Spider Veloce 2000 which all of you must know is my hobby as well as my car. It is basically unchanged from the showroom except for paint and upholstry. Mechanically, it is the same as when built. I have kept it the way the factory built it as I have always believed that manufacturers really do build the best product that they can. I have access to 8 or 9 parts cars which makes life a lot easier for me as I try to do the required work on the car myself. I've probably screwed up more things than I have repaired but the car is still on the road and doing well.
Thanks for havin' me.
