Above are tw0 photos from around 2005 showing the car in its present condition. Not much has changed in 30 years except some new wheels and tires. Under the hood the 2.0L has now been built to 2.1L with a bump in compression to around 10.5 to 1. The car now has a Holley 360 CFM 4bbl carb (vacuum secondaries). It is still a lot of fun to drive.

Here are some pictures of my 1981 Blakely Bernardi.
It is equipped with the Ford 2L engine and automatic, quite likely from the Pinto as they most of them were. At this point, it is still quite good looking for it's age, but does have several items that must be reworked. Well, all in due time. When I start working on it, I am sure that there will be some stories to tell.

Carey was kind enought to send out recent pictures of his "White" Batam engine bay. From this picture and confirmation from Carey it is possible to instal Weber's DCOE carbs witouth moding the body work. The engine bay looks really good compared to mine.
