  1. Seen this car at Williams (and The Keeper also) and it looks the goods in person.
  2. Not sure I got a full on pic of the Figaro, but I did get some others. Got there Friday, unloaded, and found this 620 parked by the coupe Some others..... Chopper Jim and Missus Kelmo @ the Hot Wheels booth more to follow as time permits.
  3. Aaron, your wife is pretty cool. She hung out a bit at the booth and even bought some Hot Wheels. This year's show was one of the best since the start of it 9 years ago. Greg and Becky (mostly Becky) did an outstanding job. There were many cart/trucks there that had not been there before and some cars that have been there almost every year and it turned out to be a really good mix of people and cars. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. I actually took pics this year and as soon as I can get them transferred and blah, blah, blah, I will get some posted.
  4. Mine must have not been that bad, someone stole it off the front porch, thus ending my BMX days. At least I still had (and still have) my Banzai skate board.
  5. Oh, so your dog is just like mine. I call it insane. See you tomorrow.
  6. ^^This times 2 We were way too poor to afford a mongoose. Had to put my own bike together, could have been a Huffy but that was a long long time ago.
  7. Charlie, don't be silly. Yes of course I am bringing Hot Wheels. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 of them. Lots of Datsuns, some Mopar, some Chevy, some Ford, and a few Tomica/Tomy things. Hell, there may even be some original Redlines. We will have some T shirts also but not too many as it is hard to sell a shirt that has New Mexico all over it in Arizona. So, you're really gonna be there this year? Are you bringing your dog?

    710 VIN locations

    The VIN is usually stamped into the sheet metal of the firewall just below where the wipers are. On my 1200's and 510's this is the case. If you were to open the hood and look at the back of the engine bay you would be able to see it. Hopefully someone with a 710 will come along and answer this. The metal tag varies in location but also locates in the engine compartment.
  9. Wonder if she could help with my arthritis...……. My joint seems a little stiff after seeing that pic
  10. The weatherman sez rain in New Mexico on Friday, but sunny in Arizona Friday and Saturday. So the weather should be good this year at the show, but I have a feeling I am going to have to clean the car when we arrive on Friday. Meh, I'll just show her dirty.
  11. Charlie may show up in a SWDP shirt, but he's gonna leave in DCDC shirt(smiley emoji here). I told Greg last year that if it weren't for our wives, he and I would be useless. Becky does a killer job. We spent most of the day yesterday in the hangar cleaning vehicles, packing what we could, and staging what we couldn't pack. And, as luck would have it, we are trying to adopt a 7 month old Husky puppy out of Cali. If all goes well the puppy will come home with us from Williams. Can't wait to see everybody again

    620 Dash Removal

    "You, my friend deserve an ice cream." That is effing gold right there. Imma use that somewhere soon.
  13. OK, seriously, post some pics of this thing already. We know your new around here but quit with the teasing FFS. imgur is the easiest, even for old guys like me. My wife and I call this one the Bitch....Cuz you have to drive her like one and she loves it. We call this one Priss….Cuz she has to be handled just so. The priss is the wife's car....I just don't let her drive it.

    12" tire options?

    Currently running 165/60/12 Falken Ziez ZE912 on my '72 1200 coupe. Got them at least 3 years ago off of a Mini site. I am afraid now they may be made of unobtainium. Possibly find a Japan connection?

    Syn's 1972 240z

    Part # 22301-E4603 Part is NLA from Nissan. When available it was about $48.00.
  16. "See you there." You keep saying that but I'm not sure I've seen you there...…….I keed. Stop by the booth and say hi.
  17. Four weeks from today. Looking forward to this one. I'll be interested to see what kind of turn out there is for other brands. Last year there were about 4 or 5 non Datsuns. We will be rolling from NM on Friday.
  18. I have only done glass install about 4 times and IIRC, the weather strip seemed a little loose before installation on one or two of them. Bear in mind that these are 1200's I am talking about. In your pic it looks like the seal wants to roll off at the corner.....is that what you are asking about? OR, is it that the outside part is covering more than the inside part.
  19. Pretty sure that is not OSHA approved equipment.
  20. We have stayed at The Lodge on Route 66 every year since this show started and really like the place. A bit more spendy than your motel 6 types but worth it IMO. www.thelodgeonroute66.com 928-635-4534
  21. I should find me one of those...….it would be the first Datsun that would take less than 5+ years to put together for me.
