Smile Hi, new here

Hi, maybe some of us saw me last days making comments around, i did meet Ecomodder.com 2 years ago, the other day I could not wait any longer and create the account :P
I love all those ideas that get into the forums, especially the aerodynamics.
I'm from Argentina, and i speak Spanish so if there is something that you don't understand just let me know and i will try to change it.
I'm still without a car, but maybe after June it changes.
Maybe i buy a VW Carat .39cd 90hp 1100kg.
I just hope find one in good condition.

What are you intending to do with the Carat? Set it for drag races like that Saveiro or are you gonna into ecomodding this time?

BTW I knew some folks back there in Argentina are sucessfully using sunflower oil as fuel

The plan was make it more aero for eco and when the situation demands it have more top speed, but recently the car price gone up
Now i searching for a Fiat 147 that car weights 800 kg have a 45 hp diesel n/a engine and have a limit speed of 130 km/h →→→ .50 CD!!!!
The plan is the same than the carat but maybe put a turbo on it to.
I like the 147 because it comes with diesel, and it's more easy get hp if is needed.Also it is more common see that car, it's produced in my country so if i need some parts i will find them easy also is more new car, 90' - 95'.
Here some pictures.

I know the 147. Too bad on this side of the border it was never available with the Diesel, altough it was locally made for export to Europe.
