  1. 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.
  2. Wow! A quote from almost 8 years ago. Back when I was still active and still had my Datsuns.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. G-A-R-N-E-R...........How does the Z have 60 years of history?
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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:
  11. Those examples are more repurposing than recycling.
  12. I'm sure they do.....and like most of us, they just throw the tubes away when they are empty......
  13. The arms swivel and can mounted at various angles.
  14. No experience with a 911 but it mounts easily in a 1978 280Z:
