  6. There’s nothing like a big Toyota sedan, and Toyotafest was full of ’em. Whether you’re talking about the brilliant luxury of a Lexus LS or the deadbolt reliability of a Camry, each one had its fans and fastidious owners. With … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  8. Kawasaki has re-released the W800, a vertical-twin motorcycle inspired by the original Kawasaki W-series built from 1965 to 1974. The W800 is said to not only take its layout and look from its predecessors, but its riding feel and sound … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  9. Woot! My yellow 240z was recently featured in the VTO Wheels Customer Spotlight! I was wondering why Alex wanted me to take some photos of the car.. Anyone notice the cat posing for the photo?

Mike came to VTO Wheels because he knew our fitment and customer service is the best in the industry. The VTO Classic 8 GTR 16"x7" wheels gives Mike's Z car a stylish finish, while the deeper lip gives a much more desirable and understated aggressive look. This yellow beauty is sitting on stock struts with Tokico springs that lower the car 1 inch. The VTO's are 0mm offset and wrapped in 205/55-16 BFG G-Force Sport 2 sticky rubber. No rubbing issues are reported, and the ride is said to be smooth and free of vibration. Thank you for your support, and please let VTO help you find the perfect fit for your next project, whatever the year, make, or model may be. Don't know what offset or bolt pattern to run? With us fitment doesn't have to be a guess! We will send you a wheel to test your fitment so you know that when you place an order, the fit will be perfect.

  10. Over the years even traditional, Camry-hating mainstream car enthusiasts have come to appreciate some Toyotas, your Celicas, MR2s, and FR Corollas. However, when it comes to the marque’s most diminutive compacts, the love still tends to emanate only from the … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  12. Check out what I just found in my files. This was the original order form that was sent to me from the Franklin Mint. I used one of these to order my model. I have two copies of this set and am willing to send it to the new owner of the Z purchased on BaT (if you don't already have a copy). Just send me a PM.

  14. The new Supra is finally here, and Toyota has been parading a lineup of previous-generation Supras whenever possible in order to remind us that the new one is definitely a Toyota-and-not-a-BMW Supra. But for all the flack Toyota’s been getting about … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

  19. In that same box I found my original AM/FM radio.
  20. Update, I found my original door and engine plates in a random box. I did start another post to discuss replacements below. Glad I found these before I purchased new ones. Here's the post I created about buying and creating new plates:
  21. Absolutely, I have no idea why I put them in such a random location! It must have made sense at the time, I'm sure. @Patcon, sure I could use them. Do you advise rivets over screws? Not sure if screws would clear the door, though.
  22. Well, I have some EXCELLENT news! While going through my files trying to find some other stuff, I ran into a box with my original 1971 radio and at the bottom of the box were these:
  23. @bingo, this is actually a fluid distribution valve with a warning switch. It's a stock item, and is supposed to be there. The probe on the top is supposed to connect to a wire that leads to a light inside the cabin. When the fluid becomes out of balance, the switch will close the circuit and cause the light to turn on in the dash.
