Alright, so I've been a little stupid. I left my 1978 280z in Mishawaka with a "friend" when I moved to Ohio. The deal was that he was to tow it to his place and I'd get back with him in a week or two and work out the delivery to me, or if he could come up with enough money, he could buy it. This was in (and here's where everyone can laugh) 2002. He disappeared, and so did my car. As a matter of fact, when I mean he disappeared, I mean that two weeks after I moved, I called and his phone would ring with no answer and then his work stated he no longer was employed there. I've looked as far as possible. I've called the South Bend and Mishawaka police stations and all of the major tow companies up there over the years looking for this vehicle. I still have the title and one of the keys, but no car. It was a 1978 Metallic Brown with fuel injection, or infection if you are a carb person. When it was left with the nameless subject, it ran, sort-of, where it would fire, then die. It needed to be towed anywhere it went. Hell, I don't know if it was left in the original location or taken and parted out. It would have been worth more parted out, but...if there's an off chance that it's still together, then I'd like to find out where it is, and hopefully get it back. I have the VIN number if it's necessary that I post it. The last place that I saw it was at what is now called River Pointe apartments in a garage in Mishawaka, Indiana. Any hints or thoughts would be appreciated.
On a test drive today after repairing new injector with bad factory crimp, the short hose from thermostat housing line to manifold blew going 80 mph. Instant steam everywhere. I hobbled off the exit and parked ASAP. The temp gauge pegged. The driver side of the engine bay was pretty soaked. After I repaired the hose and got some water in it, it started and got me home but it ran rough all the way. Do you think its running rough because some things are wet or is it possible I did some more serious damage? 77 280Z n2deep
