This is my hopeless project. Take an old farm truck. And make it into an Alfa. So far I have desmogged it, Weber 32/36 on a modified intake. Pacesetter header,thrush glasspack, 2" exhaust, msd coil and wires.

I am on the hunt for an 84+ 2wd to nab the front suspension off of, an early 4 runner for the factory rear sway bar and a Supra for the LSD. Hopefully I will be able to find and install most of it this summer

Make it into an Alfa, you say?

You'll fit in well here. Welcome to the dysfunctional GRM family.

I will watch this with interest. I've been wanting to make an old Datsun PU into an Alfa lately.

Not really sure why either...

You just reminded me that I have a very nice used Doug Thorley header that I had originally bought for my '85. I should sell that.
