    Re: Scorpion #621 revival

    Familiar looking stuff there, down to the blue interior. My interior was pretty trashed when I got my car, and it took me the better part of a year's worth of my free time to get it to look good....

    Re: New Member from Massachusetts - 1976 Scorpion

    Welcome to the forum, nice looking car you have there : )

    Re: Scorpion bumpers, top, nose band

    Pretty sure MW Bayless is the only option for bumpers without going international. I feel like I'd have found anyone currently making the roof section in the States by now, I've looked for a while.

    Re: Scorpion vs Zagato Repair & Maintenance?

    I don't have experience with the Betas, but I've owned two 124s and two other Fiats prior to my Scorpion and it was reassuring to already be so familiar with its engine when I got it.
