  1. Approaching a major intersection on a bike can be terrifying. Staying with traffic flow is key. Jockeying up to the 1st car at light gives visibility. Yeah I might put a finger on the car for clipping in & balance. No harm done. I would hope they would respect the comrade at their side & acknowledge their presence giving rightaway to them at the turn. It's just a bike thing.

    exhaust smell

    I an't tell where exactly the roar comes frome either.
  3. I agree you might want to take this to HibridZ.com for a more educated opinion. I have a custom Chevy 350 V8 in my 72 Z but have no idea what it would sell for today as I have had for over 10 years & have made several mods. The car looks really cool to me with clean interior & only thing telling is hood. Looks like solid minimally modded V8 conversion.

    So if You Found a Wallet?

    Now that is a worthy topic for discussion. I’m sure it has been done before but whatever.

    Well I'm officially "Z Less"

    Letting go of a car is like giving a child up for adoption. I feel your pain.
  6. If you found a wallet say at a gas station with cash & credit cards would you attempt to contact owner ? If cash was $1.00? $100.00? $1,000.00? What would you do?

    My old 240 is on EBay....cool.

    The white looks striking w/ that shade blue. What is it called?
  8. Unfortunately I have 3 modified sports cars cars in the driveway.

    Show me your seats

    More Recaros: I have the SRD model in my 240. They are a tight fit.
  10. I live in a small hood w/ mostly good neighbors but a few bad apples. I just had my mailbox bashed a couple months ago for no good reason. I haven't knowingly ticked anyone off but feel I need to take precautions & do simple things to keep my cars safe.
  11. Cool! Could you post a pic of a cap for a 240? Thanks for all your suggestions. And yes, unfortunately I must keep the Z outside. Wish I could keep them all inside for sure as the weather is taking its toll.
  12. Yeah, I could get an OEM for $60. But I really want a locking one for security. Some of my neighbors may not like the roar of my Chevy 350 V8 I run with duel Supertrapps & do something evil like sugar or water.
  13. Why, why, why? $60+ for a simple OEM gas cap for a 1972 240Z! My after market locking one is 10 years old & really hard to open now. Can't seem to find another locking one at all. Any source for the locking type now? Photo is what I have now with locking mechanism sticking to where I’m worried the key will break.

    Fire Extinguishers: Why we should all have them

    I keep one in all of my cars. Two in the Miata daily driver: one chrome for looks mounted to the brace behind the seats and one for throwaway use. Only time I have needed one is to put out a raging engine fire in a pickup flaming in the middle of a local intersection. Not my car but was glad to offer it up.

    Spoiler or Air Dam

    While I can't speak directly to Z dams I can rate 1st gen RX-7 dams as I've tried a few. Some definitly stabalize the car at over 100 mph. Therefore I'm thinking same type works for Zs but have no statistics.
