    1967 Series V for sale $2499

    The linkage is a bit rigged up, maybe I'll add a picture near the pedal. It is a cable cobbled to the end of the existing pedal lever and runs in that white tube. But it has been reliable and have not had trouble with it in the many years I've owned the car. I did cleanup the carb-to carb...

    1967 Series V for sale $2499

    I’ve decided it’s time to sell my late ’67 Series V driver and get back to working on my original Alpine. Bought in 2014 I’ve worked on this car a bit, sorting some issues, and using as a fun driver. It is solid as rust goes but has some significant accident and abuse damage. However, the...

    It looks like some of the images and references didn't migrate, sorry about that. I thought that worked when we did the test, I'll try to figure out what happened; but at this point you'll probably have to redo it.

    Just noticed a lack of "Members" listed on the new site...

    So the Members screen can be sorted by those tabs at top. The Default is Notable/Most Messages, which lists members in order of how many posts they've made. If you choose Most Points it's a different list. If you Choose Most Likes there's nobody because we didn't use Likes on our old forum so...

    How to get back to "Home"?

    OK, I changed the home destination to be the main website. Try it out now. I debated whether people thought Home would take you to the base of the forums or the website, since they're not as integrated as they were before. I can see where it's nice to have the Home go to the main site though...

    Sad news

    The only forum restricted is the SAOCA Members and Discussion Forum, which only allows Posts by donating members. We use this sub forum for SAOCA voting and such, that's why it was restricted. Not sure everyone knows that. Maybe it's something to revisit.

    Alpine project for sale in Arkansas

    Bud said someone may be interested. Not sure if it's a forum member or not. He's looking for advice on pricing. I know it's hard without seeing all the details. For me a good solid body is worth more than a rusty project with good mechanical bits. But it is an incomplete non-running car...

    Alpine Shooting Brake?

    That's hilarious. Obviously a bastion of Sunbeam authority. :rolleyes: Maybe they should update their internet web crawler algorithm to ignore items posted on a certain date?

    Another...Alpine in the Alpines

    passing on an email from a non-member ------------------------- Maybe let the OP know that the rockers are solid, floor pans have very minor rust break through - and if wanted can send more detailed pictures of those areas through email so you can post if wanted. It happens to be my...
