      The stock steel wheels tend to flex a lot. They don't inspire a lot of confidence mid corner.

      Thanks for replying. I wish I knew where the car was now, I would most definitely be interested in buying it back. Actually my pops is coming to town this weekend for my niece's birthday, I'll talk with him about it.

      And I'm glad you posted that question in your reply to someone else -- I joined the 311s forum (waiting for admin to approve) and started browsing the classifieds. It seems that roadsters are reasonably priced for a complete running car in decent shape -- though I'm sure the "get in" price seems reasonable and then parts are likely either a bitch to find or they are expensive.

      I haven't even thought of buying a roadster for a decade, but I am not in a place in life where it is reasonable and I would like to look in to it. I'll do my research, but what is the number one thing you'd recommend? I personally prefer to find the car with the best possible body condition (and in old/rare cars, I would think close to a complete interior is big) and worry about mechanical stuff second. I can see this biting me in the ass if something is missing/broken that is very hard to find/replace. Any quick tips?


      And I'd better adhere to thread rules:

          As for buying a roadster, yes there are some parts that are just as expensive and hard to find as parts for my M3. The good news is that vendors have many of the parts that you might need. Unless someone has hacked up the electrical system, its pretty solid. Running gear is also robust, as is the engine. The U20 is rare, and was only used in the 2 liter roadsters. Timing components are more expensive than those of an S14. The good news here is that odds are, you will only have to buy them once. Yes there are horror stories of U20s breaking a timing chain and ventilating both the valve cover and the oil pan. This only happens if someone ignores the horrid noise that the engine has been making for a LONG time before it let go. The brakes are fantastic stock. Yes the fronts are expensive to replace, but again, do it once if they are leaking and you are good as long as you take care of them. They are 11.25 inch rotors with 2 piston calipers up front and large finned aluminum drums in the rear. A good way to get an idea of how many miles are on the car is to look in the trunk. The fuel tank is mounted to the floor of the trunk. The mounting points will crack the floor near the rear panel. The other place to look on 67.5- '70 cars is below the brake master cylinder. They tend to crack there as well. (Early cars have a different firewall.) Once you are cleared for 311s.org, you will find tons of info there. the forum is more active than this one.

                    Here are a few more pics from Saturday.
                    Scow Schooner Alma, and the Brigadoon.

                    Brigadoon off Angel Island.

                    David Crosby's former boat "Mayan" off Alcatraz. We almost caught her. She started 5 min ahead of us.

                    Schooner Elizabeth Muir trying to keep pace with us (she started 15 min ahead of us)

                    The oldest boat in the race, Yankee, built in SF, 1906. She was knocked off her stands during the 1906 earthquake.

                    Yeah, it was wet.


                    A nice shot of Martha (the boat I was on) that I shot a few weeks ago.

                            It's Russia's shuttle program. It never really took off.



                            My favorite Soviet copy is the Concordski. It was a pure fail. The Wiki page is full of luls.
