    There was a light blue 2002 Roundie for sale on Copart. Was a Houston flood car. It had a custom interior and BBS wheels. does anyone know what happened to it/how much it went for?
  2. 1973 Partout

    I've already cut off the nose. It's pretty rotted in the lower radiator area. Fenders aren't any good.

    Very Sorry Dave - I hope you get a fair price from the insurance company - that way you can replace it with an even better example!
  7. PRICE DROP! Full Set Roundie Taillights - Amber

    Bump for price drop
  8. I recently purchased a car that had been sitting in for many years. Prior to sitting, the motor was rebuilt and upgraded. There is no VIN embossed on the block and the head is an E12 with a 1980 date stamp. With the valve cover off, it looks like some machine work and threading had been done where the mechanical fuel pump bolts in. My question is, did e12 heads from 1980 have the provision for a mechanical fuel pump, or was this a fuel injected head with the fuel pump installed later? Thank you, George
  9. Complete Roundie Amber Center Tail Lights This set has the rear covers, wiring harness, un-cracked lenses, driver quality rings (could be polished up to a nice shine but not perfect) All in all, this is a very nice set of OEM tail lights - and totally complete $200+shipping
  10. E21 Recaros - 2x pass. seats one driver

    Thanks Esty - I reached out to Dave
  11. Hey Guys, I recently picked up three black leather e21 recaro seats. One driver and two passenger seats. Like usual, the driver seat is pretty wrecked, but the two passenger seats are in alright shape. What's involved with taking a passenger and turning it into a driver seat? Just swapping over the side brackets? Anyone know of a write-up? Also, these seats are missing the plastics and the knobs. - Any place to source new ones? Thank you, George
  12. Used Original Recaro covers

    Sold yet?
  13. Newly Purchased 73 Parts Car

    No numbers on the boss, where a VIN number would normally be. I did notice a little bit of machining where the threads are for the fuel pump. It seems as though the head was modified to use a mechanical fuel pump. There is a 1980 date stamp on the e12 head, and it looks like some machine work on the inside where the fuel pump threads go. No mirror, so I wasn't able to see if the cam is aftermarket. I almost have the motor pulled, just need the engine crane to pull her out.
  14. I just took delivery of my 73 Malaga 2002 that I won in an online auction. When my tow guy went to pick the car up, the owner told him that the motor was rebuild and modified shortly before the car was parked 8 years ago. I texted him and he said "Hey there, I bought the car about 8 or so years ago and the motor at that point had just been gone through. The top end had been bench flowed and the valves lapped. The lower end had fresh bearings and had a balancing. Don't think the cam has been changed out but it sounds like it could be a mild cam." I got a look at the head today. It's an E12 head with a 1980 casting date. The block has no VIN or SN on it. I started the motor and it sounds strong/lopey like it has a cam. I also found a bag with a bunch of old piston rings, bearings, and a few other motor internal pieces. Is there any way for me to figure out what kind of modifications the motor has, without completely disassembling it?
  15. Does anyone have experience with OEM fenders vs the ones from Restoration Design? I have three choices, buy brand new OEM fenders from a local guy at twice the price of Restoration Design Repair my fenders (swiss cheese bottoms) Buy restoration design fenders. Are the reproduction fenders the same quality as OEM?
