for the last 13, 14 years ive mostly been into bikes, thats where i learned to use spanners, modify things, tune things etc. even with the right old machines, if you couldn't get the parts oem, an alternative wasn't hard to source. people were friendly, offered all of their time, generally couldn't do enough for you (even if you were planning on making a crappy old commuter into a fire breathing monster!)
As some of you know iam trying to build a 24valve converted ALFA (not ford etc beeh beeh) 75, so far ive hit set back after set back, ITS ALL TOO [email protected]
@KIN EASY TO SAY NO LONGER AVAILABLE MATE, WITH NO OFFER OF ANY HELP TO SOURCE AN ALTERNATIVE, lazy approach that all car dealers seem to take unless you have several thousand in the bank (even then you'd struggle)
I know for a fact, if i had a ford, vauxhall etc i'd be onto a winner coz you can still get everything for em (early seventies cars may be excluded here) but i don't want to be chav, i don't want to be a [email protected]
@KIN sheep, i want to do up an ALFA ROMEO, a real drivers car, one with spirit not some sh1tty E30 beema etc.
is it too much to ask to build a non standard, tastefull fast road car?
particularly with the name ALFA followed by 75?
This is doing my head in, before long i may consider doing what some of these un helpfull idiots suggested and just crush the dam thing....
Its a good solid 3ltr shell without a sunroof, that would be a good waste but ho hum, why should i care? nobody else seems to....
to those who have offered help (sensible suggestions)etc i thank you very much, it is most appreciated
