Re: Updated serial number list:

Here's one more...
349543 12 1971
...and I'm trying to establish prod. date on this one:
342452
Pretty sure it would have been 11/71 or 12/71 but car came to me without the door tag. I have a repro tag to stamp but need to verify the date!

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

So I received my Integra wiper motor from Rockauto today, p/n WPM5423 ordered for a 1999 Acura Integra. You can see that it's a little different compared to the one Spriso posted above.

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

FWIW, here's an R-180 STI diff overlaid with a 240Z R-180 diff. They are the same.

Re: Post a pic of your Dime.

This is actually my ex-dime, a '72 4dr, circa 1983. http://i.imgur.com/du1Z9Mf.jpg Then I bought this '72 2dr in '84, which I still own to this day. Still original paint, #905 Cherry Red.

Those are pre-'72 non-recliner front seats for a 2dr, correct? Can you tell by feel if there's provision to receive the headrests under the vinyl seatback covers? I presume there's a matching driver's seat?

Re: Who's yer 510 Sugar Daddy?

John Morton and Peter Brock did the '72 Mexican 1000 in a 510.
Chapter 8 of The Stainless Steel Carrot tells that story.
