    New owner - hello!

    Hi All

    I've been admiring these cars since I was a wee boy and finally one came up that I've managed to attain. I am taking delivery on Monday / Tuesday and already have some questions.

    I've purchased a Stradale (see pics) but am tempted to change it to GP4, I've spoken with the lovely Lydia at LB Specialist Cars and have all the bits and pieces price wise, has anyone done this and is there anything I should be aware of? Note, I am mechanically dyslexic but have been around cars long enough to know a number of good people for bodywork and mechanicals.

    I'm also considering the Nitron dampers & springs, has anyone done the conversion and is there a massive difference? This wouldn't be my "go to" drivers car as I have one of those, this is more a car for a wee blast now and again, don't think I'd be giving it massive beans, again, because I have another car that is more modern and more the way I like to drive - with the added 3-year warranty !

    What is the feeling on "non Lancia colours"? Does anyone have a non-Lancia coloured car?

    I'm up in Scotland, I am under the impression there are very few of these here but please say hello if you are here, would be good to meet up once I have the car done to my liking.

    Best,
    M7.

    Hello.... all the way from Auchterhouse!!

    Good to see someone else local. I imagine we will have a few friends in common.

    I'm in and around Dundee and the Ferry a fair bit in my STR. Mine is a full on factory built GP4 Alitilia rally replica and you're more than welcome to come over for a closer nosy if it helps you get an idea of the changes you might want to make when you get your mitts on your own.

    Hi Jim!

    I'm astounded we've never met one another. I've been mincing aboot the Ferry in a variety of cars for ages, and indeed, we'll know a fair few of the same people. Superb you are literally 15 minutes from me, I'm in BF!

    I'll PM you my number and yes, would like to meet up and have a wee chat about the cars.

    Best,
    M7.

    I understand it is customary for forum membership to come as part of the deal with any used car sale......

    What's the feeling ! - Your car your colour choice

    Non Lancia so no Lancia anywhere - I kept some Fiat and Bertone bits though

    Nitron - Yep- and go with the turquoise. - Although I could probably only just tell the difference between a good damper and a broken one.
