  1. My neighbor just put his truck up for sale yesterday. To bad I already bought one. ? out of my price range anyways. $17000 Canadian. 1961 fordf100 short box 302 dual exhaust. 3speed manual with over drive. Anyone notice something different about this truck?
  2. Got a vinage 1989 Ford F-150 last week. Beautiful condition. No rust,158000 kmiles, in line 4.9 litre 6. When I called the guy he said he just put the ad up 2 minutes ago. I was first in line, he got 70 more call and they were still callin after he took ad down. Lesson ......don’t hesitate call immediately if interested. When I saw it in the parking lot I thought it must be a misprint, listed for $2500 Canadian. ( that’s $1800 us ) 5 speed overdrive. Interior clean. Qualifies for vintage insurance. I love it. Would never have happened if I waited 5 minutes more.
  3. thanx steve. works perfect. I don't post as often as I use to. I find it's difficult to navigate. when I first joined it was much simpler. i'll try harder to use it more often. got a new old truck. i'll post pics soon. thankyou very much.
  4. I don't know how to change my signature on my post. the signature and list of vehicle I own below when I post or reply to a post.
  5. while watching the nbc nightly news tonite, I noticed there was a red 280z under a pile of ruble. I hope iveryone is safe that's the main concern. first thing I thought was it a member's and is he ok.
  6. what's the difference between an irish wedding and an irish funeral? one less drunk...... drive safe.
  7. 1000 posts doesn't make one a mechanic. I can change tires, oil and fillet a fish.
  8. I don't know much about struts but don't u need a compressor tool to compress the springs?
  9. the reason I ask about the quick struts is my mechanic said he needed special tools and it wasn't an easy job. with quick struts I figure I could save on hourly rate.
  10. i'm going to need new struts soon. I've heard about Monroe quick struts. any feedback and do they make them for a 240. my machanic says the back ones need replacement, should I do all four while i'm at it. thankyou very much.
  11. got a new used Honda civic coupe Thursday. it's a 2011 with 74 thousand kilometers. cost out of pocket was $ 1400 and he thru in a set of snows and rims ( three seasons on them) and a full tank of gas. basicly same car but without the leather seats. I think I got a good deal, move up 2 years and gain 80 thousand kilometers ps got $ 8150 from the insurance company

    ominous weather coming to florida. according to the news it's a big one. hope all our fellow zed members stay safe. I know life is most important but take precaution for your zeds.
  13. was rear ended last month. after fighting with insurance company finally got settlement. 2009 Honda written off. I can move up 6 years to another Honda but it's a salvage. this is all they do is go to auctions and fix them up. the ownership has rebuilt on it but same designation as salvage to me. damage was front end, basicly front clip, one fender, hood, rad and rad support. has lazer spect to within 3 mills. i'm apprehensive about a rebuilt. would like to get oppinions on weather to buy or stay away. right now i'm on the fence. it's a great lookin car. ( civic ex coupe) tia
  14. replaced head lamp driver side. it was shattered. don't know how it happened. ok when I washed and waxed car last month, then a few days ago while taken bug sponge to the frontend noticed sealbeam out. last year before I went to zcon 2916 I replaced same headlamp that was burnt out. I did that job with the wheel on, made the job difficult. this time I took wheel off, ten times easier.
  15. Can someone post pic how to hang shoulder belt. this is how i do it but it doesn't seem right.
  16. everyone who works pays into Canadian pension plan ( CPP)which you can collect at age 65, but you can apply anytime before at age 60 and take less money the earlier you receive it. old age pension starts at 65 and everyone gets this. you have to pay taxes on these incomes even though you can't live on it. where i'm from few companies have pension plans, only public and government workers get it.
  17. after 35 years on the high seas I retired on Wednesday. fished lake erie and lake huron ( commercial gill nets) mostly for perch walleye whitefish and lake trout. tough hard job. no pension, only a hardy hand shake and a fine farewell. fortunately me and the wife lived modestly within our means. the zed and 68 mustang ( which she recently sold) were the only extravagant purchase for us and that was late in life. after getting up at 3 oclock every morning now I can toss the alarm. lots of time to cruise and golf.
  18. planning on entering the zcca judged car show in the s30 stock. will I be deducted points if I don't have my original spare tire and tool bag?
  19. wife sold her 68 mustang today. being shipped out east to saint john new brunswick. had it 12 years, big block 390, she didn't drive it much. bought for $11000 sold for $9500. wife wanted 10 but the buyer ask if we could help out with the shipping so she gave him a $500 break. took it away on a flatbed. the driver drove it on. i was shocked, i've never had this done before, always had it winched on. got alot of thumbs up in it. sad to see it go.
  20. ok, yea i didn't have to jump the battery, must have been low sitting for 4 months. thanx.
  21. getting ready for the driving season. i started up the 240 today and it sputtered and stalled awhile. finally got it running smoothly but i noticed that the alt meter would jump to the positive whenever i stepped on the gas. it never did this before. any reason for this to happen?
  22. happy thanksgiving to all our fellow American members. rest up for black Friday.
  23. salt trucks out on the weekend. zed put away till spring.
  24. as most of you know I own a 72 240z colored lime yellow or code 112. I have always been under the impression that this color was only offered on the 72 model year. on ebay I see a 73 for sale with the same color code sticker. it's a beautiful car and has a repaint but according to the description is original color. my question is, did the 73 come in this color option?
