That Scorpion has definitely been lowered quite a bit, even.

A few other brave souls showed to C&C. The weather was much better just a few miles north. Six cars turned up. The Buick is owned by some old family friends.

Maybe not the greatest c&c weather. Maybe not the greatest c&c weather.

Screw it. Less people means less people in line for bagels and coffee, right?

Giving C&C Another Shot Giving C&C Another Shot

I’ve only been to 6 or so C&C with the Scorpion and never really enjoyed myself too much. Our local C&C is this weekend and I’m going to try and make another showing and see how it goes. It should be pretty small, a couple dozen cars or so, on account of winter but that’s more my speed anyways.

Hour Rule Hour Rule

I’m a simple man with narrow interests. I see a cool photo with a Lancia, I post it. Man, is it slow at work tonight.

If you’re on Oppo tonight you have time to spend 3 minutes listening to 3 variations of Monte. At this point in seems like no two cars are alike with everyone adding their own unique touches. It’s cool seeing how each owner can make a car their own.

Just look at those roads in the background. Somebody had fun.

Oppo is super slow tonight so I guess I’ll just have to read actual books instead.

Before work caves in this afternoon. Roads are still empty and largely clear, none of the snow thats been promised has made its way over the foothills, apparently.

Happy Winter whatever. Happy Winter whatever.

Or summer something to our friends below the equator. Family brunch later (which really means early dinner if past trends are anything to go by) but I figure the roads should be pretty empty this morning 😄

Or quietly mumble, rather. SOO intense. Okay, nothing exciting, or loud, or theatrical, but it sounds great to me. It is always a little cold blooded so it seems to be idling pretty low until it heats up.

Maybe not as striking as the difference between the Stratos and the Dino, but I think this shows the different philosophies between Pininfarina and Bertone as well.

UPDATE: Soooo, I pulled over to let a faster truck get by (there are no faster vehicles on a mountain road than a beat up pickup) into deeper than expected half-frozen snow and got stuck. Yes, I’m stupid. The incredible thing is that the 2nd car to drive by stopped and asked if I needed anything. He gave me a push for…

Stupid things I want to do with my car Stupid things I want to do with my car

I have a lot of stupid ideas of what I would do with my Lancia given the money or energy to do it, here’s a few.

Were you wondering what's in a Lancia Beta Scorpion taillight assembly? Were you wondering what's in a Lancia Beta Scorpion taillight assembly?

It’s one of these things. Trying to figure out a no brake light problem. The wiring seems fine but the connectors that link to this circuit board are shot. Never disassembled any other vehicle’s taillights so no idea if a circuit board is unusual or not. I do believe 124s had something similar?
