Talked to my insurance/collector car insurer.

As much as the Government has put forth the extension from 1958 cars to 1974 as a proposal for MODIFIED collector plate, it has in fact NOT gone in yet. SUPPOSEDLY, it is to roll out this spring, no date provided.

I checked into a few things and I would NOT make it, as I would need an emergency brake and a front bumper. I am not going to do that and the benefits of the collector plate are not worth the BS and there is a lot of BS.

Anyone that wants to apply needs to fill out an application, after having the car inspected so it has one of those MV inspection stickers on it.

That means my rear set belts have to go in . Crap. More stuff to clean.
Summer project now as I'm not waiting that long to put insurance on.
In just two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.

I never even thought of my rear seats. As stated, what the car came from from the dealer is what has to be in the car, which is kinda weird as we have a MODIFIED car. I dunno, I think the government makes stuff so silly people like me just throw up our hands and don't bother as the BS factor is not worth it.

Today was a parts finding day. Went through some parts I have not looked at for years. Can't beleave all the stuff I have in boxes etc. Some good parts too. Fender eyebrow trim, rear inside B pillar vent, dashes, speedo clusters. And on and on. Leftovers from 4 cars taken apart. It's time to purge some of this stuff. :roll:
One thing I didn't find at the shop today was some new lashpads for a new 445 cam I'm going to sell. I have been looking for them for a while now, with no luck, so I pulled some off a old head that the 445 cam had seized up in. .210s
Back home again and I went through the car, jets under the seat, got lucky and found the 44 jets for Byron. One more thing off the list.

After all that I went up into the attic and through my box I use on long road trips. Alternator, distributor, box full of smalls etc. And there it was! Sitting in a bag with a set of new points. The long lost lashpads. Score.

So what kind of price would a fresh M 445 Shadbolt cam with new pads go for these days? Im thinking the $200+ range?

That's funny Rob's name is there, as I used to hangout with him and Mike Mellish in the Road & Track days, the main store was on Hastings.

Mike had a great 510 with the full Nissan competition suspension in it. Rob used to run some of our Westwood track days with us in his 510. I delt with Mike before I hooked up with Andy at Specialty, so we are talking the mid 70's.

I ran into his son at the Langley car show that last time we were there.

Let me know if you find any extra of those little plastic trim pieces that attach to the pillar where the seat belt is. Couple of inches long attached with a single screw.
Carpe Diem!
