Did we lose a 520/521 in the Sonoma fire?  I caught this on Vice News' coverage of the Norcal fires a couple of days ago.

Quick use of a phone!
The rear bumper may have survived. Those step bumpers are indestructible.

Yep, I think you're right.  The bed lugs caught my eye... but on looking more closely, the fender flares are a little more pronounced.

And I need one of those bumpers.  My original was bent when I still lived in Norcal, thanks to a bozo in a BMW.  It can be straightened, but not by me, and I've never found a bumper repair shop like we used to have in the 'good ole days.'  All the ones I've contacted over the past few years were really only messing with plastic bumper repairs.  I bought a "replacement" bumper while still in CA from a board member (forgot who)... but it's for a 521, so the taillight reveals are all wrong  :blush: .  I'm hoping zed1 will make a quick trip down my way and fix me up as soon as he's done with his restoration... or maybe he'll want to just trade trucks so he can do another resto  :angel:

Yeah, Draker called it.  Also, look at arched top of the back glass... definitely Courier.

Not an MGB or MGA as the door shape is wrong.

I don't know where the buckle belt is but it must be way down there. zed1 is just north of Dallas. I visited his 520 bout a year & a half ago and it is a helluva 'every nut & bolt, better than factory' restoration.


Better to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy !!

The buckle belt is usually around the waist.

When I first returned to TX from CA, I was about 15 miles from him. We're from DFW, but it wasn't working for us. Now I'm 350 miles south, in SA. We'll make the guest bed for him when he comes down to work on my stuff ;) You should come too. You can put some of your Fiat magic into my list of projects I'm never going to get done!

Could be a Mazda Rotary pickup. I know there are a few in the wine country.

 

The convertible in front of it has me stumped. I recognize the shape, but can't place it. Almost looks like a Fiat or Alfa.

Without offering an alternative, I say no. Front door jamb is angled. Miata is as straight up and down as you can get.
