    1979 Mazda RX7(3rd engine, '95 Jeep Wrangler, '98 Isuzu Trooper, '06 Honda Civic
  1. I'll be there with the wife, Mon. afternoon til Sat morning. Driving the 300zx because it has a/c. Some of the local club are leaving Sun morning and caravanning down w/an overnight rest. I'm driving straight thru, very early Mon morning.
  2. Here's an interesting website: http://www.licenseplates.tv/1969-california-stat-1569.html You can customize your own replica plates - state/year/numbers and letters. Cost is about $80 delivered.
  3. This is only for a single muffler tip? I would still like to see a vertically stacked dual tip muffler package.
  4. I'm booked also! I see they have 4 Har-tru courts available on site. Who's up for some early morning 4.5+ doubles?
  5. How about separate lines for checking in to the convention? Those who have pre-registered and those wishing to register on the spot. The last thing I wanted to do after the 10hr drive last year, was to wait 2 more hrs to register, Which I didn't the first day. Other than that, all was good last year!
  6. Owners of '06 to early '09 Civics - BEWARE of the smell of leaking antifreeze! My '06 has 65k on it, and I thought I smelled antifreeze leaking. Couldn't find a leak, so I attributed it to running the heat for the first time this fall. Long story cut short - it was the engine block that had a crack in it. It overheated, and I towed to dealer and found out that there is a service bulletin on this issue regarding defective block castings. It was a $3k dealer cost fix, over $5k retail. Honda picked up the tab luckily. I did some internet research, and others were not as lucky with most paying a deductible or some 50%. Now, the previous repairs are being retroactively repaid. I believe Honda has extended the powertrain warranty to 8yrs/unlimited mileage. But after the covered repair, no warranty exists according to my service rep. Don't get me wrong, I still love the car - handling, quick, nimble and 30-40mpg are great. Hopefully, the engine will be now be as reliable as in years past.
  7. They are listed again, but cheaper @ $65 a pair shipped. EBAY Item #110602307867.
  8. The code is 'P20'. I needed a new head light so I went online and this code popped up before the regular header appeared. It works with no minimum as long as you don't purchase an oil change special. I went ahead and picked up some other items for later (Sta-bil). Pretty neat to have it bagged up at the store for pick-up an hour later.
  9. Thanks for the link! I wonder if he got enough footage to make an 'on air' episode. It would make great press and publicity. I'm always surprised when talking to Z owners that I run into on the street, that they know very little about ZCON or the local and national clubs.
  10. I just realized that I posted the incorrect link. Here, is the one for KD#3087: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KD-Tools-GM-Valve-Under-Rocker-Arm-Spring-Compressor-/230512530036?pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools
  11. This looks like the same one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/K-D-CAR-VALVE-SPRING-COMPRESSOR-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ150481297226QQptZMotorsQ5fAutomotiveQ5fTools
  12. Try 'SSuspect' classified ads here on the site. He's parting out an early 260. I purchased a pair of fresh air intake ducts from him last month at a fair price.
  13. Would have loved to have come, but made plans for Sat. already. Next time, give a little more lead time and I probably could have gotten some buds from the local Md club to come also (350's and S30's).
  14. Put me in for 1, Dave. Pappal coming shortly. Thanks again!
