My truck was a mess when I bought it and a few other cars in (Lancia Delta Integrale Rallye, Rallye Golf, and another Syncro Tristar) and I spent the better part of a year re-doing the body and having the interior completely upgraded and restored with modern materials and colors.

Since then my fabricator has built the expedition rack, front and rear bumpers, sliders, and installed a fully programmable air ride suspension. I am about 90% of the way through my built 1.9 TDi motor with a complete mechanical refresh, custom intake, ECU tuning, mapped and enlarged injectors, and a hybrid turbo. We are estimating the horsepower to be around 160 wheel/290 lbs-ft of torque. The transmission is going together with a rear locker along with front and rear planetary differentials as well as taller gears for 3rd and 4th for easier highway cruising.

It is neat to drive and I can't wait to have it running with the new drivetrain in place.
Did you ever sell the Lancia Delta Integrale Rallye?

I certainly did. There is a gentleman in Washington State who I met a few years back that likes that genre of cars and he bought it and is doing a restoration on the vehicle.

Thanks for the kind words! I bought the differentials and Porsche 930 CV adapters from a place called Peloquin and the gearset (taller 3rd and 4th gears, 3/4 hub, 4th gear oil ramps and viscous decoupler) from Long Enterprises in California.

I take it you've never seen all the episodes of Top Gear trying to destroy a UK farm truck?

Easter car show

Forest Park, St. louis MO. 40-50yr tradition. When the weather cooperates (as it did last Sunday), it's the best of the year.

Actually, it's two shows in one. The original show was for Stock cars only, so another show for Modifieds was started, and runs "separate but equal" right next to the other.

All pix taken quick&dirty style, as the thing is friggin' HUGE. Must have been close to 1500 vehicles on display between the two shows. So here's the ones that caught my eye.













Blue Shirt Guy reaching into cooler is the Owner. It's his daily driver (sans bike).
