Cars and Coffee....Here in INDY.

Post by impalamonte on Fri May 19, 2017 5:12 pm

Thought I would share . Sunday morning cars & coffee.
We were the only 2 a-bodies on the lot.
Have to respect a guy to do a body off on an already scarce car to begin with. And I have seen the discussions on the difficultly finding parts for these.




This was Saturday night at the local meet.
1976 Fiat X 1/9 with a Olds 455.  Think about the amount of fab work in this!!  2600lbs  500hp/500ftlbs T.

On the GTO , it was an automatic. But , he just purchased another one needing work that is a factory manual shift. I believe those were "low" number production cars....less than 1500 cars ?

The Fiat , he said he has had the right front wheel off the ground. To keep it cool , one radiator up front and one under the back winshield. He said on street tires , very hard to get it to hook.

That Fiat's got to be a lot of fun, like a go-kart I'd bet.
