    Yeah, we've all been there. And the thing is.. I really wanted a car back then too! I even started to save up for one. Haha.

    But there were a few guys that did okay when they got their cars. They were really big carheads that respected each other's cars and didn't act reckless. Haha

    And I need to look at your thread! Your car is nice!

But who knew back in the 70's. Take away, learn, and then get something nice.
    I'd do anything to drive a car like that! My grandfather used to be really into cars like that. I always thought cars were stupid back then. But the older I got, I started to see how cool they were and how nice the older American muscle cars were!

    [QUOTE=SD_GR;3646545]I think everyone sees the past with rose-coloured glasses at times. It was always "the good old days" never mind that the cars would not run nearly as long, well, or quickly as today, and that they would turn like yachts and stop somewhere down the road vs. stopping RIGHT HERE!!! today, tomorrow, and into next week like modern cars.

    Now I've got to say I'm still in love with LARGE land yacht style cars and station wagons. The more ungainly, underpowered, and over-adorned, the better. Love 'em.

    I wonder if the OP would consider a 1976 Chrysler New Yorker.

    It's hilarious to hear you mention the New Yorker my buddy's dad had 3. The first engine I ever helped rebuild. By the third build me and my buddy(Who's name was actually Buddy) did it ourselves. Oh those summer days, I still remember getting a little smart with my friends Dad asking why do I need to learn to use a timing light? They won't even be around in a few years. I wish I had paid more attention to the free learning resource. But hindsight is always 20/20

    Memories here too. On my 280Z several of the bolts holding the valve cover to the head were stripped. I ended up drilling through the head and using bolts with nuts on the bottom -- there's enough lip to do this on some of the bolts!

    I found a blak "TURBO" valve cover from a 280ZX Turbo and took it for my 280Z, and I also took a VDO boost gauge from a Porsche 924 Turbo. I never got around to a turbo Z though. Moved to MR2s.

    Good times. Miss them.
