  1. Sorry I couldn't make it guys. Hope everyone had a good time.
  2. If I'm able to make it I'll be in the Sentra. The fates have worked against me to get the Z done in time. I might actually be working on it the day of. We'll see what transpires.
  3. I'm gonna try and make it this year. What's a good hotel/motel?
  4. Hoping to get the Z back down on the ground by then as well. Redoing some of the suspension and some brake work. I'll be there either way! Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
  5. You sir, are a fucking stallion....love it.
  6. You guys don't mind if I invite my buddy in his 78 Blazer? He's been my brother from another mother for almost 25 years and I think he'd enjoy the get together.
  7. Damn, Charlie! LOL...quite the project good sir.
  8. I'm definitely coming back this year. You guys know how to make a guy welcome and I loved meeting you all last year!
  9. Like those wheels man! Keep up the good work sir!
  10. Thanks guys. Yeah, the Maxima is the only "L" series with an overdrive. Getting hard to find now..lol
  11. Has anybody tried bolting the 3-speed bellhousing on the 4-speed case yet? Just wondering as the L-series overdrive is almost impossible to find now. I can however find them for other applications all day long.
  12. Anyone happen to have one or know someone that wants to part with it? 4 speed automatic overdrive L series transmission to be clear. I'm in the Inland Empire but would be willing to drive a little for the right price.
  13. I'll interject a little here. The "official" process for transferring an out of state vehicle into California is listed here: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/vr/checklists/outofstate From what I can tell, all the DMV inspection consists of is verifying the VIN#. Technically they could care less what engine was in it as long as you have the smog certificate if it is needed. I also found this document extremely interesting: https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/replace.htm Particularly this section: Non-Catalytic Converter Equipped Vehicles Headers for non-catalyst equipped vehicles are considered legal replacement parts as long the replacement header allows for the installation of all smog control equipment originally attached to the stock exhaust manifold. Depending on the vehicle, some of the equipment that would normally be attached to the exhaust manifold includes: Air Injectors Heat Shields for the Thermostatic Air Cleaner Heat Risers EGR System Hookups Fuel Evaporation Systems
  14. Nice meeting you as well. Yeah, I kinda lucked out with the Black Pearl....altho I got rid of most of what makes it a Pearl...lol
  15. Had a great day! Good to put some faces with some names. Thanks for the food and the company. Hope to see everyone again.
  16. This thread was started over 2 years ago when I lived in Missouri.
  17. Yes, being a 78 it still needs smogged every two years. All other points you are absolutely correct on. A federal car brought in needs to only follow the federal guide lines. I find it interesting that they haven't moved the cut-off up yet. I have access to VIO data and in California they are quickly coming up on less than 1% vehicle population older than 1990 or so. I'm wondering when the payoff isn't going to be enough to keep running them thru expensive smog testing equipment? As an aside, your story makes me miss my 81' 200sx hatch. Had alot of fun in that car until I hurt it bad on black ice, a ditch, and then a culvert..lol. It wasn't the same after that. Sold it to a guy and he moved to Illinois with it. Still ran like a top even with the bent rear end. Made it really twitchy in the rain and absolutely UN-drivable in the snow.
  18. You know, I never realized that you were actually lifting the truck when I did those drawings for you..lol. When I get a new computer I'll have to do a new rendering for you.
  19. Not lately, I don't even have a computer at the homestead anymore..lol. As soon as I get one I will probably start up again.
  20. Indeed sir, indeed. I'll probably be there pretty early....does it start at 9 or 10?
