did you guys discuss issues like getting parts remanufactured? unlike fiats , contis didnt sell in large numbers and spare parts dealers dont have stocks of parts lying with them.
miyer here had talked to senior people at lumax. they said if they had 100 orders then they could produce a batch of conti taillights for us. that way we could save a lot of contis from ending up with sumo victa tail lights.

Wow! Nice to see so many Contessa enthusiasts.

I heard a lot about the upkeep needed for a Contessa, especially with care needed for the body as it is very rust prone. Is it any better now with availability of better anti corrosion treatments/ products?

I liked the yellow Conti. Headlights could have been better in my opinion but still looks good. Great to see so many Contis at the same time.

Wow, some of the contis look neat while some are overdone.
I see a policeman in the last picture, was there some kind of issues at the venue?

Wow!!.. I just love some of the subtle looking contys, and the ones looking near stock!.

Rest of the ones, especially ones with too much bling seem to be a bit weird and whacky to me.

TOTALLY AGREE! although i do like how the cielo dashboard has been neatly shoehorned into the light purple conti. would like to see more pics to know how did the person manage to do it so well. please get pics of the corners of the dash, both sides. and is the car turbo charged? but even then, isnt the intercooler up front a little too big for such a small engine?
