    Michelotti's take on a Ferrari 330.Looks better from the front than from the side in my opinion.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Looks more likely to be the revival.Which takes place next weekend.I have known people who make an autumn break by combining a visit to the Southampton Boat Show and Goodwood.I have a feeling that hotel rates will be elevated in both places but by less eye watering amounts in Southampton.

    Photographed on Thursday, July 10, 2008. WRT the thread title, I recall, but cannot find a photo of "enthusiasts" racing those Bond minicars round a track..

    Sure feel the resonance with a 124 Spider.

    The X1/9 was derived from the Bertone Runabout concept, based on Autobianchi A112 mechanicals. The runabout and the X1/9 are both Gandini wedges, none of that droopy tail thing that's going on with the Mustang concept.

    When you stand next to the Mustang 1 prototype at the Henry Ford Museum there’s a little plaque that says, “design study sold to Fiat. . .

    That Mustang 1 concept is a lot smaller than I thought it would be - just watched a walk-around video.

    There's definitely elements to the front, screen and roll-over bar / aerofoil that are shared by the runabout concept, and who knows what happened in between '62 and '69 - but the Runabout and subsequent X1/9's back story doesn't really support the influence coming from Ford via Fiat...

    I can't link to the article, its one of those sites with no address bar or way of linking, but you could search for silodrome, it's not spammy or massively active, some nice news and short articles.
    It does say this..
    [The rolling chassis was sent off to Pininfarina in Italy who clothed it in a new body, the design took some cues from the MGB but with a far more Italian flavor – not dissimilar to the Fiat 124 Sport Spider. That would come a year or so later (also from Pininfarina).]

    I'm trying to figure out why it gives 124 spider vibes.
    The headlight buckets are closer to a MGB.
    The bonnet looks a bit like a GT6 with maybe some Frua mixed n.
    With the hard top on it looks like an early 124 Sport coupe from the front wheels back.
    Maybe it's the wheel-arches and bumpers.


    Then again I can see 124 spider proportions in the Michelloti 330. I think that's something with the length of the panel between the door and the rear wheel arch.

    No design exists in isolation.

    One for the "oh dear" file.

    ETA: just imagine this on much smaller, much wider alloy wheels!

    You couldn't possibly use that on the road in the UK! You would be lucky not to get it crushed by the fuzz.

    I know enough about rods and early Fords having owned a few. I detest that Model A made to look like a T, braindead option. Reverse rodding.
    That last coupe could be road legal here but it's a massive PIA, ( the exhaust is routed under, Birlinn)
    To run without fenders you have to be a member of an affiliated rod club and there are other hurdles. It's even wearing out my mad rod friend with his 34 ( similar in style to that 32) where he's wondering out loud. Plus of course , people are more interested in more authenticity , patina, race car ethic nowadays.

    In California, the fender requirement is weight related
    (and that vehicle may not comply... but California likes cars. I have been pulled over more than once just so they (CHP) could check it out!)

    27600.**No person shall operate any motor vehicle having three or more wheels, any trailer, or semitrailer unless equipped with fenders, covers, or devices, including flaps or splash aprons, or unless the body of the vehicle or attachments thereto afford adequate protection to effectively minimize the spray or splash of water or mud to the rear of the vehicle and all such equipment or such body or attachments thereto shall be at least as wide as the tire tread. This section does not apply to those vehicles exempt from registration, trailers and semitrailers having an unladen weight of under 1,500 pounds, or any vehicles manufactured and first registered prior to January 1, 1971, having an unladen weight of under 1,500 pounds.

    I'm very fond of Model A's and have resisted the urge several times to own another. Those 28/29 years are nice but my affinity lies with 30/31. Although a 28 roadster pickup might change my mind. I like em stock and I like em with flathead V8s and on V8 16 inch wheels too.
    Or maybe a nice little windsor.....
    What I wouldn't do is take a vehicle thats made it unmolested to 2022 and go all Coddington on it. I think thats wrong.
    Maybe the MG should go and a nice little Waltons truck should.........

    Since I'm being nostalgic, here's one my buddy owned in about 1978. Two of us were driving tanks with big blocks around, we thought he was crazy buying this Aussie Charger. We called it the pink truck.
    20210622_140713.jpg
    That particular car is an E38 Charger , they had a warmed six with the six pack carb setup and a 3 speed gearbox ( believe it or not). The next year model had a 4 speed which is probably why he could afford it. Anyway, it would sell somewhere between 250 and 500 k now if it was still around. Maybe it is.

    Oh I agree completely except, I've had a 28 Roadster pick-up w/side mount, and you can't even get in on the passenger side.
    I guess I have restored about a half dozen model A's through the years. To be practical they need better brakes.
    (In my opinion the best engine swap for any of those old Fords is a good ol' 283 with the JC Whitney bolt on motor mounts and rans adaptor. The throttle linkage even bolts up!)

    I remember you saying that about the smallblock mounts before.
    I think I've only had one, a 265 in a 55 chev. 4 door of course, that's pretty much all we got here.
