the saturn is a pretty cool motor imho
give it some time ... the more i have a chance to consider, the less i'm interested in doing a twin-cam swap
maybe just an old school setup with twin sidedraughts
won't be blistering fast, but who cares ...

yeah it's worth holding out for a complete car, particularly an old colt as there's virtually no new or nos bits for them here (excluding wear and tear and engine items of course)

my belt driven engine isnt impressive whatsoever, but I hear the older chain drives made more power, so it might not be so bad.

Yep, the 32B's make great boat anchors! :P
I'll admit, they are smoother than the chain drives but they are very underwhelming and honestly not worth spending any serious money on.
A 4G54 conversion is really easy and I'm sure you could chase one up at the right price?

Cheers, S

PS, well done Mark on the good find. Haven't I seen those pics before.....? :wink:

steve might be thinking of the twin on cardomain, unless yours is the twin? seems coincidence that both cars are 2drs, same colour, same general location ...

btw, why don't you consider leaving it a 2dr? sorta unique that only japan and states got that model 8)

I think Sideways is talking about the classic colt board, as he is jacking my thread over there. :lol: That car *could* be the same, but I don't think so for a couple reasons. 1- Front seats. Those look to be nice original seats and mine are plain vinyl seats that look like they were reupholstered a while ago. 2- Floor. Mine still has the original rubber mats and rocker covering. 3- Rear seat. The upper right rear on the other looks to be torn while mine is in fine condition. As for leaving it a 2dr, from what I was told by Charlie, the only difference from the outside would be the lower window trim, the coupe having the rubber moulding while the hardtop has the fuzzy. If the window is up, only the hardcore guys would know any difference while I get the benefit of being able to roll it down for better ventalation and cleaner lines (IMO). It will still be a 2dr. :P

i completely agree and would do the same myself
i mean, are the dodge colt police going to issue you a citation for unorginality? :lol:

to bring up the point i was making on the colt forum, i believe the 2dr vs ht was simply a trim issue, to justify the extra expense of the ht

now, was the ht only available in a gt? or was there a regular ht and a ht gt sold side by side?



oh, pardon to any non-colt owners who've got no idea what we're talking about (or why) :P

While I'm by no means an expert on these, it would seem you are correct. Give it some roll down windows, different hubcaps, and carpet and you have a hardtop. As for the second, I think there were HT's and GT's. Don't know what was different though. I do wish these would have come with the JDM cluster. The rectangular cluster is so 60's. :lol: Hopefully Charlie will chime in with the differences in the US models.

yeah, you'd think that the gt model would at least have the gs cluster, but it don't :?

all i can tell from seeing the yellow rotary car is the graphics and badging
maybe there's a center console or some other little thing?

i know the mk 2 gt had a 5spd, but i'm not sure about the mk1 (usa spec i'm referring to of course)

Nothing ground breaking, just some new wheels. Got them for a great deal so figured why not? 13x6 Carroll Shelby CSS meshies with 205/60-13 BFG T/A's. These cars seem to need rather large positive offset wheels to fit in the fenders. These are 0's and stick out a bit in the front, but fit pretty well in the back. Would probably rub if the car was lowered. These will work for now until I can find some nice +20 to +30 wheels.

Yeah, not much room for wide rubber unless you go big time positive. I have some 15x6.5 +33 Enkei wheels that would fit nice, except they are straight out of the 80's. :shock: You hiding some flares Matt? :twisted:
