let him do that, we will screw him left and right and center. ofcourse after taking the keys .

Hmm...yes, I did suspect the same thing too.....unfortunately no way of proving it! :(
I now feel we should've done him just right by deducting atleast 100 bucks form the total amount for the keys while making the final payment....

its nice to hear that the car is being worked on. how much work is there on the car? from the pictures it looked more cosmetical then micanical, but that is only seeing pictures you know better. in four days the car would be ready to hit the roads.
wish you luck and great going
Thanks! (And that goes for you too, gogi! )
Well, we finally got her started up today.....mechanically the car needs minimal work, engine's perfectly noiseless even after remaining unused since what seems like nearly 10 years....Suren came over & went with my mech. for some carb./distributor parts.....radiator's leaking though....then comes the common susp. bushes replacement....were gonna drive her near to my place so my mech. could work on her thereafter......but got dark today & he wasnt willing to risk it in the traffic at that time with the horn (& maybe headlights) not working (yet!)....

BTW, we'd be grateful on any leads on the original front indicators for the 'centrelight' fiat.....I know a shop here where he has the lenses (glass ones I believe) but not the whole assemblies....also the horizontal trim bits across the centre of the grille, either side of the centre headlight.

wow stanher great going. she looks really good, so i guess with the minimal work and the engine being in a good state of affairs you would be able to get her ready for the 15th run. the engine bay looks clean and yes i like the original air filter too. gives it a powerful look.
