Re: Peach City Beach Cruise June 23-25

Morning Jeff, I would love to go again, but, so much depends on when my car might get it's new engine. I went in 2017, met a friend there who lives in Osoyoos. Crazy busy and getting to my parking spot was not great, what with my "racy" clutch. I thought I was early enough after driving up...

Re: Stu's 1972 4 Door

I had some plates made up years ago, being lucky to have a steel stamp set at my work that was close to factory, a hair bigger, but I think it looks close to correct. The factory obviously hand stamped those plates, as you can see the numbers are up and down a hair. Regardless, a NEW plate just look...

Re: REMEMBRANCE DAY

Morning World,

Here again is REMEMBRANCE Day, thinking of all my family that went to the many wars.

That we are still fighting around the World is a great sadness to me on this day.

And to all those that lost their lives in the insanity of War!

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2022

Morning World, Another post on here, last one, promise. The "instant" winter I find quite amazing this fall, I have been hit with 2 strong windstorms already in White Rock, so many crashes in the mountains with the snow, bad, drivers and ill equipped. I have at least 2 days of raking in my...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2022

One final stat for the day, the G35 wicked off 27.50 MPG, amazing really, all things considered.

Smoke here is so bad today, just got back from Tyson's, horrible the whole way, must be brutal out the valley.

My GPS vs the car's speedo was only 8 Km diff, I guess not bad over 603 Km.

Re: Larger oil capacity diff cover for sale, R180

Cover is sold, thanks for the interest, wish I had 1/2 dozen to sell! This is as close as I can get at the moment, I'm pretty sure there ARE some decals left in my "race decal" envelope. Those were fun times, Jamie and I always have such fun reminiscing about those days. On a sad note, Ber...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2022

Sorry you went through that, feel like we never saw much of you.

#1 is F'd now constantly on most days and Sundays for sure now heading back to town. At least I can do the back route and stay off #1 from Abby on. Talk about a highway that is so antiquated for the volume now.

Larger oil capacity diff cover for sale, R180

In trying to get rid of stuff, I find myself with 2, larger capacity diff covers for an R180. No sense BOTH having another birthday in my basement, enough celebration going on down there. As these diff cover's have gotten stupidly expensive, this could be a great deal for you. This one was made by M...

Alveen, we must give you a road map and expected route. Here is my story for the day and some pictures.
