It’s been a while since I last posted here, but you can blame the last two years of med school for that... anyways, last time around, back in mid 2015, I’d left my Tipo in a shop to fix the passenger side window, they went joyriding and busted the engine. Bad stuff. Between then and now, a lot of other stuff happened, not much of it good to be honest, but about a week or so ago, my old clunker went back to moving under its own power, So that’s at least a bit of good news. What’s more, since I had one engine down for repairs, I figured I’d take out the engine in my second Tipo, the one I bought for almost nothing due to “irrepairable engine damage”, and figured it was only a shot cylinder head. Everything else is fine. No cracked block, no snapped crank, no leaking piston rings, just some bent valves and ground camshafts, so that’s more good news.

Man, I missed that car...
