  4. Cars you want to own but are scared of

    South Africa
    For me one of them is the 373kw E60 M5. Cheap as chips to acquire nowadays. Well, relative to its performance and maintenance costs (?). What's your desirable but affordable financial disaster?

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi All, I'm new here at AO. I owned a 1978(?) T Reg Guillieta from 1985-1987 loved it, but the cost to replace the clutch at that time was mega, think the gearbox was right on the back axel or something, any way sold it to a mate who still has it, but it hasn't turned a wheel for 10 years. Any...

  14. Rust worm - a little scared to dig further

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    There is a fair amount of rust coming through around the offside rear wheel arch on my GTV. At the worst place just at the back of the arch the paint has bubbled up completely and after some prodding around I have found the rust is all the way through in a small area. I could probably punch a...

Let me tell you, anyone that can remove a gearbox coupled to a DE DION...
