Nothing today, but yesterday adjusted the idle mixture on the mk1. It's done around 140 miles since the MoT now, and every 10-15 I have to empty out the pre-filter I fitted before the fuel pump. There is A LOT of crap in the fuel tank!

If it hadn't fitted the pre-filter, it'd be in the carb now, too. Food for thought!

Yes Lancia made some great cars. I had a Beta for about 3 years, not one of their great ones but an enjoyable car nevertheless.
I could not beat its rust however so sold the 4 year old car for peanuts to a guy who wanted the engine.
My father used to run a couple of Fulvia's alongside our DSs and I can remember as child us driving from Scarborough to Herefordshire to see a Fulvia Zagato with a view to purchase. No idea why we didn't buy it but I think he bought bought a red new HF instead. Even as a 5/6 year old I used to find the rear of the Fulvia very cramped, certainly compared to a DS, and moaned endlessly. I always loved the dashboard though!

The only other Zagato I recall seeing was one that was just outside Killinghall near Harrogate for many years.

Todar I are been mostly attempted to clean up the gearknob. Instead, I began eroding the rubber it's coated with. I do have a spare, But I think getting a plastic replacement would be preferable.

EDIT: oh, and for funsies:
