Re: this is new, who owns one of these?

Yes it is. But it rusts like hell. The gearbox is a mess. And the guy making the earth connections must have been very drunk on cheap italian wine.

But it is a dream to drive. Itīs a GTI and GSi killer. (130TC Abarth).

Re: this is new, who owns one of these?

It rusts, but not worse than other cars. I bought one last year with the original paint on it (from 1985) and was not very rusted. I'm courious how quickly will appear rust after the repaint.
About the earth connections, I'm afraid you're right.I have some warning lights permanently on and no failure. I think this is the reason.

Re: this is new, who owns one of these?

Well, this one looks good.

Weīve hade 4 Ritmos. One 85 S and 3 Abarth 130 TC. They donīt rust only by neglect. They rust due to poor quality steel quality, and it is a fight to keep the car rust free. Especially in Norway, where it is 6 months of winter and salty roads. The 85 S broke apart when we were lifting it in a garage. The welds were so rusted it just snapped, and front window cracked to pieces.

But what an engine. It is insane. The throttle responses almost before I put the foot on the pedal - just by thinking more power. Twin-carb, twin-cam (still 8 vents, but LARGE), and 2 litre engine does the trick.

Morten.

In those conditions it would rust even it was made of wood!

Re: this is new, who owns one of these?

i need to get mine back on the road. to hear those twin carbs sucking in great amounts of air is bliss. when tuned properly, the engine whistles. only 45 or so on the road and about another 70 or so in various states in britain.

hi big nutts.
yep, they rule. the bellow from the twin solex 40 ADDHE''s is magic. and with the suspension polyflexed on mine, it handles beautifully.
its black and shows all the marks so needs the body respraying too. all to be done once my health is back to 100%. iam about 90% there so not long to go.
