Did you get your alternator installed to take the M5?

Darn, since I'm sitting in the airport in Vienna, I'm going to be a no show. Maybe we can try again in August?

I just did a suspension refresh. Koni's and Dinan springs along with some miscellaneous bits and pieces.

Thanks again Brian for the offer to help with the install. I ended up back at Leith. I've been using the same mechanic there for over 7 years now. We email directly and the pricing is competative. Plus, they always give me a nice loaner to play with. I asked him to change out the subframe and differential bushings while they had the car and he told me to wait. They didn't need changing yet. I was skeptical, but given the improvements I've seen (decreased wheel hop and no more creaking), I guess he was right. Seems like he replaced the sway bar end links and rear control arms along with the shocks, struts, etc. I brought him.

What is that white one-seater, plate 10025? I'll have to check this C&C out next time I'm in town.

I'll be honest. At first I thought there were two Isetta. The red one you see and the white one too but I'm wrong on that. I really do not know what it is but it was a cool little funny single seater. Must be fun to drive those things. Reminded me of Top Gear Reliant Robin.

The '08 is in NC and has a warranty to Feb 2017. Like I said, very tempting. You're supposed to do a better job talking me out of it, lol! If it was IB, it would be in my driveway!
Here's another one and from a very reputable local dealer (great guys, club racers, long time CCA supporters):

It looks to be in great condition -- might be worth checking out.
