By Carlo Abarth
Have been reading here for a while and it is a great community so time to introduce myself.
My name is Carlo and I live in the Netherlands. I'm the chief editor of CorsaItalia Magazine, a dutch magazine about Italian cars thats in stores every two months. Started it with my dad, both working with magazines many years and wanted to start an magazine about our hobby: Italy and Cars,
After work I have some hours to spend on my hobby, a 1972 Giulia Super. Modified a bunch of things, like a 2-liter engine with about 150 bhp, nice suspension mods, 14" GTA replica's and a brand new red interior. The interior is completed for about 90% now.
As a daily driver I own a 2004 156 1.8 T-Spark. Nothing really special, just a nice driving car in good condition.
And then, the reason for being on this forum: my 1998 Spider 2.0 T-Spark. Bought it in April this year, with 110.000 km's on it, about 70.000 miles. It was in original condition, only fitted with a phase 2 interior later. When I bought it de screen behind the seats (no clue how its called in English) went to the garage, it may be nice at high speeds but it makes the beautifull line of the 916 Spider disappear. I have fitted a new console in the middle, there was an ugly sprayed black example fitted by the previous owner.
After a while I bought my favorite 916-wheels: 18" Zender Siena. I have had to GTV 916's before and I had always wanted that wheels but they never came by for a normal price. Now they did. Because the 18" wheels make it look very high on its wheels I purchased a set of Cobra Suspension Lowering springs that lower the Spider for about 30 mm.
Work to do? Sure! The paintwork isn't very good. Original red with blank paint that comes of on multiple places. Besides that it is a lovely car, perhaps not as shiny as my to previous phase 2 GTV's but it drives a lot more 'fresh'.
Keep up the good work here, reading a lot of stuff!
