1992 Alfa Romeo 33 1.7 carb
Worn out bushes.
Worn out shocks.
Power steering R&P leaked.
As I bought the car, it was fine for about 10k kilometers, after that things started to break down one after the other - but mostly from mileage & time wear. There was no serious malfunction in the car (& hopefully won't be).
I took it as a project car, and so replaced almost everything about it.
The car has got a rebuilt 1.7 8v engine with 40mm carbs, 4 Koni sport shocks, all around poly bushes, vented discs at the front, omp strut brace, 185/60/14 tyres & rims, new paint job - Alfa red (the old red was dead), all around new bearings, shock mounts, clutch...
I liked it from the beginning because it is a unique car and cheap to buy, and I wanted a car to tune up myself, to match it to my specific demands.
This car is pretty amazing - it corners & grips like a leach, stops good for a 33, and goes like stink.
The engine with the carbs sounds like nothing I've ever heard - including sports cars.
Of course the materials inside are badly made, the driving position is bad, and the A/C doesn't work.
But... this is one hell of a car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
