Is that a transverse torsion bar spring, or just a gigantic anti-roll bar?

That is the first thing that struck me about the pix.....second is that 'reverse slant on the rad....has to be very short, means has to be thick, and so to the plumbing something coming out top of the pump, and returns/supplies to the driver/left side of radiator?? the stat hose is made up outta plumbing parts like I did on my radiator conversion 22 years ago..... but the large hose down lo coming from what looks like same side of radiator, across and down the driver side of fender???

a very interesting engine compartment for sure......and that poor little fan got a hell of a job to do......

It is not- I was mistaken- both are flat black.


The one in the video doesn't have headlights- the one I posted does,

Another neat C3 was Detriot Speeds

My first thoughts on the in-car video were; "What is going on with the steering system?" Is the box that sloppy? I'll admit I haven't driven mine in a decade (it seems) but that seems like way to much action required. All that movement and saw little response in the front end. Throttle steer complications? A lot of HP there I bet.

Cheers - Jim
