Hi everyone. I am probably considered an "old fart", but my heart is still young. I drive a Chevrolet Suburban with 300,000+ miles on it for a daily driver and a Fiat-Abarth 1000 TC in local historic racing events.

I am a engine development engineer who specializes in development of parts for historic cars (hence the ownership of the Abarth). What led me to this forum was that one of the engines that I design parts for is the Fiat 1100 as found in an Indian produced variant of the Fiat. I am in the process of making connecting rods, camshafts and other "go-fast" components. I am hoping to find out more about parts for these engines from other Forum members.

That's it for now.

Regards,

Paul Vanderheijden

Welcome to TEAM-BHP Paul!

Haven't seen many Abarth's here, only one long time ago at a local car show(Austin, TX). Its a beauty.

Post some pics when you get a chance.
