Wayne bought (another) new car! Who can guess what?
 
I picked up the Probe 16 in August. Very unusual car indeed, details here: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/off-topic-discussions/1070269-wayne-bought-new-car-who-can-guess-what.html

Just got a new one that is equally as unique, rare and interesting:

Is that a custom built racer based on a Fiat? Is it a post-war Abarth?

Nostril Cheese 12-19-2020 01:41 PM

Looks like a FIAT or Alfa

Sooner or later 12-19-2020 01:46 PM

Early 1950's Fiat

I think you should restore it to before this dash badge was added, and I'll take it off your hands! SmileWavy

I would really like that in my living room. That is very cool.

I have to say that that one floats my boat a great deal higher than the other one.

Ditto.

Super Cool. It hits all of the right buttons.

Love it.

One of the automobile magazines or TV shows about a dozen years ago did a comparison of track performance of a 1930's race car with an aircraft engine like a Liberty compared to the latest Porsche GT2 or GT3.

The modern Porsche barely had a better lap time, the test driver commented that with modern tires the 1930's open wheel car would have won by a large margin.

Something like a 1960's Lotus 25, 29, 38, 43 or 49 (Jim Clark-ish) would be cool too. I'd imagine not as fun because it would be a museum piece.

It is a yet another cool toy for your collection. Please don't restore it, leave it as is, just get it running and stopping safely at most, and have some fun it it.

Z-man 12-20-2020 09:26 AM

That is an amazing machine.

NOOOO - keep it as is.

Fast Freddy 944 12-20-2020 04:07 PM

Wow! What a classic! Restore? or leave it be?
