« on: October 29, 2005, 08:37:39 AM »
:shock: Just been flicking through this months (November Issue) of Practical Performance Car and come across a 126 Bis in the readers projects section – page 121 – belonging to a guy called Colin Chandler, He has fitted a 140 bhp Honda 1000 engine into the back. Its not finished yet, but sound like fun.... :twisted:

The body looks starndard at the moment with the exception of a big round hole with a cooling fan sut out of the rear quarter panel. It says he has got rid of the frount spring and made hid own frount suspension out of other fiat parts and rose joints...

There are also some nice pics of 126's on http://www.abarthracing.com/
