    I'm more curious to hear/see what Giugiaro would produce if tasked to update it.

    I usually leave some mouse poison around the garage for them (near doors, along the walls). My hope/plan/goal is to "feed" them before they get into anything. So far, so good.

    I've pretty much decided on the BF Goodrich TA's for the rear (available in 235 and 245's in 60's). I like the wider look for the rears. For the fronts I'm leaning towards Cooper Evolution Tours. ...

    Installed new rear bushings (all 8 and I used rubber, not PU) and it fixed the excess rear camber. I haven't felt this good about the car in a long time. Now searching for tires.

    I've learned my lesson on this a long time ago:)

    I didn't take any pictures (I should keep a cheap camera I don't mind getting greasy in the garage). They didn't look bad but were "sloppy".
