Well, it’s time I start a build thread for this guy. vvvv Don’t let the wet photos fool you, the paint is not this glossy in its current state. This car is getting a pretty basic 8V ABA swap first and perhaps eventually a turbo ABA. I’ll try to be as pic heavy as I can in this thread, because I know you don’t really care what I have to say :wink1: I bugged George for a while late last fall to sell me this car for something fun and easy to work on and autocross the shit out of. I must be crazy, I know. Fast forward to early March this year. I found a ’74 BMW 2002 that I fell in love with from a guy just south of Rochester. Turns out the guy runs an Alfa Romeo restoration company. Cool. Once my mind is made up that I want that car, George texts me telling me I should buy his MK2. The timing of this kid... Well as it turns out the seller of the 2002 contacts me the morning I’m going to pick it up telling me I probably shouldn’t buy it due to a lot of additional rust he noticed after pulling it out of storage. I take an experienced restoration dude’s word for it, so I take the money burning a hole in my pocket to George’s and buy this glorious lump that same afternoon. All in all, it’s a good little car. George took really good care of it, it just needs a lot of lovin’ to get it to where I want it to be. This is a more accurate depiction of the current state of the paint. It has Corrado red dot seats, which barring the driver’s seat, are pretty minty. I got to work pulling the original 8V out to make way for the incoming ABA. I’ll be reusing the 020 trans and the essentially brand new clutch from the 1.8 8V so apart it came.
