    RIP Victor Laury

    Bkecause of my detachment from the Datsun hobby, I didn't know of Victor's passing. He was a good friend back in my Datsun days. Like the Datsun hobby, I also lost track of Vic as wall as the many other great people whom the hobby brought into my life. Vic and I go back to the days of 510 Again (The national Datsun 510 Club) if anyone remembers that. Forgive me if this video has already been posted somewhere on this site.
  3. Do they still make Mitsubishis??

    water temp sensor/thermotime switch ID

    Wow! A quote from almost 8 years ago. Back when I was still active and still had my Datsuns.

    RIP John Coffey

    Sad news indeed. I knew John on this site as well as personally. I attended his Beta Motorsports/Vintage Motors car show on a yearly basis until about three years ago.

    FICD and my A/C

    I'm actually still here too! Well, occasionally. I ended up putting the FICD system in the car I mentioned above in post # 2 approaching 11 years ago. It was actually easy. I used the vacuum tank and magnet valves but I didn't use the vacuum switch. I tapped into the power line to the compressor so when the compressor was switched on, the vacuum went to the FICD and raised the idle. I haven't owned the car in over 6 years but the system was easy to figure out and worked flawlessly. Unfortunately, since I don't have the car I can't take pictures of the setup.

    Bumper Needed For 1979 Datsun 810 2 Dr Coupe

    I wish you luck. I owned an 810 2dr. from 2003-2009. It took me three years to find good bumper end rubbers. (I'm assuming that is what you are referring to as 'wings'). The bumpers themselves are impossible. Luckily those were in good shape on mine.
  8. G-A-R-N-E-R...........How does the Z have 60 years of history?
  9. Here's the New York Times article about him: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/25/business/yutaka-katayama-father-of-the-datsun-z-dies-at-105.html?_r=0
  10. Somewhere I have a picture of Mr. K at the car show in 1999 that I mentioned earler. Been looking for it since this thread began. Hope it didn't get lost in one of our moves. So far, all I've been able to find is a picture of me next to a life sized cutout of him at the Heritage Museum......I doubt that anyone wants to see that.
  11. I met him at the Classic Datsun Show at Doheny State Beach in 1999 and ran into him at various other events over the years. He will be missed.
  12. Al Allen is a crook. Do a search on his business, Datsun parts LLC on any Z car or Datsun/Nissan website, including this one, and you'll get tired of reading the complaints.
  13. I know where he lives......and he's been at it for long time. When he gets enough negative feed back, he'll just change his user ID:

    Re-Use Your Empty Toothpaste Tubes

    Those examples are more repurposing than recycling.

    Re-Use Your Empty Toothpaste Tubes

    I'm sure they do.....and like most of us, they just throw the tubes away when they are empty......
