Ford vs Ferrari Film

I heard this film was coming out soon, so we must as a group here go see it like we did for The World's Fastest Indian. Lets hope it is at least better than Le Man's ,which still cannot be beat for that opening 10 minutes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_v_Ferrari It's also timely for me as I am ...

Re: BACK TO MY NISSAN ROOTS

You got that right Richard, Jeez have I enjoyed my TIME, got so much fun stuff done over the last year and bit.

My son-in-law has to do that South Surrey crawl to downtown Vancouver and he has had it, yet, he still has to work. The stress is just stupid now for people.

Re: BACK TO MY NISSAN ROOTS

I was envious and almost thought about joining you and Trevor when you said you were going to do the Duffy. That would have been a fun drive in our cars, I would have gone back the Lillooet to Lytton stretch, which would have been such a nice cruise with minimal traffic. I am so glad I'm done with s...

Re: BACK TO MY NISSAN ROOTS

Maybe a bit of a silly post today, as I spin my wheels on a rainy, cool September day. I am now half way through my 8th year with the G35, it now having some 204 + thousand Km on it. It has run incredibly well, still tight and no leaks anywhere. It still gives me 29 to 32 MPG on a highway trip and a...

Re: '72 4 door, Tweety Bird

You have got a good handle on it then.

here is a pic of my exhaust after a good highway cruise and my A/F ratio at 4,200 RPM.

Avgas burns quite abit cleaner than pump gas but it gives you an idea of a good mixture

Re: '72 4 door, Tweety Bird

Ideally, you want to run as HOT a plug as you can. This keeps the plug "clean" for good idle, etc.. Be realistic of course as to your type of driving, or, what type of trip you might do. I do put in the effort to tailor my plug choice for what type of driving I will be doing. Like your area, we have...

Rest In Peace Jessi Combs 1983 - 2019

Yesterday, Jessi Combs lost her life in violent crash of the North American Eagle Land speed car, attempting to beat the fastest woman record of 398, which was hers, at Alvord desert in Oregon. She was going for 500 MPH. As a fan of Myth Busters I loved seeing her on the show and, I have followed th...

Re: All Japanese Classic Aug.25/19 Waterfront Park

I have made it a RULE.....if my car sits for more than one(1) month, I pop the valve cover off and drizzle some oil over the cam/rockers and on the top of the valves and even a bit on the timing chain. It is amazing how "dry" that cam can look after even that time period.

Re: Trip to Stave Lake and Harrison Mills.

All my whining aside..... I had a great day! For me to talk "shop" with someone who knows the mining industry, is very, very rare, so that was just great! That Brian is my age had him in the same time period of so many of the Howe Street stock promoters and scams in Vancouver. I have written about s...
