Re: Lancia Limited

Well, sure--this wasn't ever an important Lancia forum. So it's not like feeling disinvited will disrupt anyone's online habits much. But the way it was done still leaves a bad taste Burning bridges is rarely a brilliant strategy, but burning them for no reason seems callous and short-sighted.

Re: Lancia Limited

I think the "Fiat Club" change exactly reflects Fiat Group's branding efforts. The embrace of a manufacturer comes with tremendous benefits to any club, but also with equally large constraints. Frankly, the writing's been on the wall since the 500 intro at FreakOut (I suspect the name "FreakOut" is ...

Re: Lancia Limited

Chris,

Thanks; I appreciate your thoughts. Unfortunately, the response suggests that it's pretty much a lost cause.

What's the future of Lancia here now that it's no longer unlimited?

Re: 1979 Lancia Beta 2000 MAKE AN OFFER!!

to 1.6HF I would assume that most folks on this forum would be intelligent enough to ask a question if they were unsure about some aspect of an ad. I guess at least one of them isn't. I've had three Beta Coupés, and I just helped someone on another forum buy a very nice '79 Coupé. So I know both th...

Re: 79 Lancia Beta Coupe Full Restoration In Process

That sunroof alignment is as good as I've ever seen from the factory; very nice work.

Good luck with the double-stick tape on the headliner, though; most of those tapes I've seen are not very heat-resistant.

Re: Another New Lancia

... Currently it doesn't appear to be getting any fuel to the carb, but it did keep running as long as gas was dripped into it. ... Sounds like a classic sign of the filter sock in the gas tank being clogged with rust and /or sludge. In addition to this forum, you may want to check out Lancisti.net...

Re: Another New Lancia

Roland,

Congratulations! I've had three Beta Coupés, which is essentially the short-wheelbase version of the HPE. And my '75 had the same interior that yours has, with the almost anthropomorphic seats. They're great drivers. Good luck with yours.

Re: 79 Lancia Beta Coupe Full Restoration In Process

It's great to see someone restoring a Beta Coupé--now rarer than Zagatos. I've had three Coupés, including a '79, and seeing one being saved really makes my day. Good luck with it!

I can well understand Phil wanting some more info; for one thing, the post doesn't even specify whether it's a Coupé or a Zagato. Hard to make an offer without even knowing that much...

Re: Greetings from Wichita

Hi Phil,

This is a great forum for a lot of things Fiat and Lancia. But unfortunately not the best place for Fulvias; there's a lot more Fulvia traffic on lancisti.net.

Re: 1982 Lancia H.P.Executive

Personally I prefer the Coupé, and the leather interior. But this one is simply stunning. And it's impossible to overstate how much better the Beta is with the injected engine--something not available on any US-spec HPE.
