PS. May I refresh your fond memories about the A-body cars that followed barely two/three years later.

These convertibles featured in the movie "My Cousin Vinny(1992)".

Baby Blue 1963 Pontiac Tempest LeMans Convertible [ID:273 on this thread, two hundred and ninety-one cars ago]



Mint Green 1964 Buick Skylark convertible [ID:274 on this thread, two hundred and ninety cars ago].

Thanks Ram, have been a bit occupied of recent.
Er... Ram, is it that only the Manual came with a column shift then as I presumed that both the manual and the autos were column shifts, as shown in the pic. In that case the pic must be of a Manual then....???

You're probably right, Gogi. The pic must be of a manual.

Wow! What an identification, agspins!
That was truly a tough one.
Really "elegant common sense"!

Default Id:567

Foreground
The silver car in the foreground is obviously a Ford Mustang.
One of the 2005-till-date generation, retro-styled to leverage the fabulous looks
of the popular 1967-1970 Mustangs.
Besides looks, it also yields neck-snapping acceleration with its 4.6-liter 300 bhp V8.

Background
ID:567 is about the other silver car -- the one in the background.
Can you identify it? Year, Make and Model?

Default ID:568; Pegaso Z-102 B Saoutchik Coupé

This coupé's front end and short wheelbase is so pronounced, that even in a rear view, it catches attention. It is a Pegaso Z-102 from the nineteen fifties.

Two bitter rivals in the car industry, that both worked for Alfa Romeo were Enzo Ferrari and Wilfredo Ricart. Ricart was the reason Enzo left Alfa Romeo and started his own company which would become so famous!

Wifredo Ricart, former designer of the Alfa Romeo 512 was CTO at Pegaso.

He designed the engineering part of these cars, while the bodies were designed either by Carrozeria Touring or Saotchik. Ricart's engine could be 2.5 litre, 2.8 litre or 3.2 litre.

ID:568 is a Pegaso Z-102 B Saoutchik Coupé.
Body design by Jacques Saoutchik

This black and silver Saoutchik had a 2,815 cc all-alloy QOHC V8 with dry-sump lubrication.

It breathed through four Weber vertical carbs (not DCOE) topped by polished bright aircleaners.

The valves had desmodromic actuation -- i.e. opening and closing of the valves was controlled by cams not valve-springs. So no valve-float.

The engine had beautiful cast alloy valve covers and hemispherical combustion chambers.

Name:  PegasoQOHCV8.jpg

Size:  76.0 KB

It put out 170 bhp @ 6,500 rpm and 221 Newton-metres of torque @ 3,400 rpm.

The all alloy QOHC V8 was mated to a 5-speed crash box (non-synchromesh). The gearbox was bolted not to the engine, but to the differential (This was a DeDion axle). This shifted the weight to the rear of the car and resulted in neutral balance.

Suspension was by torsion bars, front and rear. All four wheels had drum brakes with large drums and cooling fins.


Wish you all a very happy, fulfilling and prosperous 2009 that brings us all out of the recession.
