My pop just picked up a Dallara...one of the most beautiful car designs ever in my opinion. Here's some pics!
From the description of the original owner:
"The Dallara conversion was done shortly after purchase. It's been a labor of love. This particular X1/9 started it's life as a 2 tone blue which is common for this model year. It's has an odometer reading of 105839 but has seen numerous maintenance repairs and upgrades to make it dependable enough for everyday driving.
It's yellow exterior paint is an easy match as it is the same code # as todays Chevrolet automobiles. The black interior is all original to the car with the exception of the dashboard. It has power windows and a cd stereo system with 5 speakers. An oil gauge has been added to monitor engine oil pressure.
The vehicle is California certified and is street legal. The X1/9 is a mid engine/transaxle design which offers outstanding handling. It's 4 wheel disc brakes give positive stopping in any form of braking. The removable hardtop makes this car an open air fun car to drive. The mildly modified engine enhances the true pleasure of driving this vehicle.
The 1.5 L engine has a special modified cylinder head that has approximately 100 miles since being recondition. Camshaft installed is 35/75, ported intake and exhaust with shaved head to raise compression, 3 angled valve job to increase air/fuel flow. The engine block is stock and has approximately 65,000 miles on it. Oil pressure is excellent with a psi of 60 freeway and 28 hot at idle.The engine bay has been meticulously detailed for a finishing touch.
It is equipped with a front sway bar, lowering suspension springs and 4 new KYB struts. Front and rear brakes are new. The 50 series tires have less than 400 miles. Wheels are Spin Werkes 15" racing wheels of 7" front and 8" rears giving a wide stance which hug the pavement."
Now, I'll let my pop describe what his future plans are for this car... muhahahahaahah.
And for those that don't know what these cars are capable of....
