Default VINTAGE Inspiration: 122/1800/PV/Duett

OK, the 2 and 7-series rides have threads. It's vintage time. I think there's more vintage owners lurking in here than are known. Let's see what keeps you wrenching toward your goals.

Mods, if thread is deemed unnecessary, I take my lashings with lime and salt please......or sticky-sticky the thread...

Go time...

I don't have a round fender car but I like looking at them, and I also think this thread deserves a sticky.

Here's the thread someone started a while back about it. The consensus seems to be "wheels suck" and "too nice of a car to have an off-center steering wheel".

Pff that steering wheel has been fixed already probably and whatever with people still stuck in the 80's thinkin 17" is 'big enough'. That thing looks gorgeous.
