AAAAAAaaaaahhh! A Lancia Beta Monte Carlo(or Scorpion, or X1/20, whatever...)!

Avert your eyes! Run away!

That was actually a pretty fun drive, but up here in the snow belt they rusted into oblivion after about 2 winters. And the Italians cribbed their electrical technology from 1963-vintage Lucas manuals.....

Ahh, Lucas...The Prince of Darkness.
You're driving your peculiar little English car down the lane one evening then...silence...and you coast to the shoulder and dig out the flashlight. Nothing appears burned, disconnected, or broken, but nothing works. And in the breeze you hear Him chuckle. ...Lucas...pure evil...

Very old joke:

Q- Why do the British drink their beer warm?

A- They have Lucas refrigerators.

Rafa - Betcha wish you had the wiring harness, too.

Do you know why my Sprite is so small? It makes it easier for one guy to push.

lol; you're right! I also remember changing the carburetor to a 2 Weber setup and blowing an engine when 1 of the carbs' studs broke off into the engine. I still loved that car though.
