Omega: Congratulations! The “Alaska Project” has always been on my list.

I agree, the best modern speedmaster. From the looks of it, market agrees as well, as values have more than doubled in the last 2-3 years. I’m sure you are aware if you have hunted this one long. Enjoy it well!

Automotive: Yes.

The green 220 was stripped to bare metal and had a full respray, ready to go back together. The blue 130 is next in line for restoration. It was someone’s race toy. It came with modern buckets, an interesting engine, and Halda rally timer. The ‘66 120, I think I have shown it here before, my driver.

Automotive: It is Always a good bonus to have a mechanic who loves cars, as a general rule.

The fuel pump on an injected 1800 is tricky, if originality is your goal. Due in part to the roads I drive, I did not like the low hanging, exposed nature of this factory set up so I moved pump and filter into the trunk, where the lines run up already, and added a Facet lifter pump. A trick I saw on
