    Yeah, Angel Stadium is really hard to find if you're 20 miles away in Torrance... I honestly don't know how people find Disneyland, either.
  2. What I don't get is there was a "head armorer" in charge of guns on the set. How in the fuck does real ammo even get onto the set? I would presume that the first thing upon arrival on the set would be to clear and inspect all weapons, then load blanks. But what do I know.....
  3. We need to paint your little headlight / wiper bezel screamin' red. I did my wagon to match the blue, and it looked very nice. Cactus green would be pretty cool, too. It would pull in a little splash of the exterior color. IMHO, of course.
  4. I live about 1/2 mile from Pacific Coast Highway, and about 10 miles South of the Port at Long Beach. I took a drive down there the other day, and about a half mile off shore it looks like a cargo ship pileup. There are now over 100 Cargo ships with an average wait of (I read somewhere) 10 days to get unloaded. If Biden says he's getting the port to prioritize unloading, there's no sign of life from here.. Maybe he needs to get Kamala down there because she's handling things so well..
  5. Have you tried an actual auto paint store? Any store worth a damn should be able to find it for you.. If you Google "TCP Auto color library" they have some aftermarket paint charts online you can look at.
  6. From a random Google search... https://www.google.com/search?channel=cus5&client=firefox-b-1-d&q=cars+and+coffee+phoenix I didn't look closely, but this looks promising...
  7. WWII Veteran Gets Corvette, and Veterans Day is in about three weeks.. https://www.motorious.com/articles/news/wwii-veteran-gets-corvette/
  8. I got my third Covid shot a few weeks ago. Also got a shingles and a flu shot over the last two weeks. With that said, I am pro choice. Whatever works for you is the right choice. I look out for me, not the Government...
  9. I've been reading about those, as well. One guy said he has two of those hooked up in series to a big Allison diesel and it works well. My existing cooler is solid, and it blocks the incoming air to my condenser and radiator. I do like the idea of a fan on the trans cooler, though. Living on So Cal, getting stuck in traffic on a hot day is a fairly regular occurence..
  10. Awesome. Congrats! Aren't the VIP cars mostly late model sedans where they are extremely cambered out, and have curtains on the back door windows? I got an invitation to a Hella Flush show at the Queen Mary show one year on the same day everyone was at the Nissei week in downtown. I was near the VIP cars, and they were all mostly as I described above. It was fun with a different crowd, and the cute Asian models in the naughty school girl outfits weren't bad, either...
  11. I've come to the conclusion that I have too many heat exchangers stuffed in the nose of my car. I need to get my trans temp gauge working first, but I'm going to go to a remote trans cooler mounted somewhere under that car. Hot Rod magazine just did a write up on these and similar remote trans coolers, and they are getting good user reviews. I'm planning on this or something very similar.. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-13900
  12. Are you entering either the stance or rev competitions? With your mad camber, you could be a contender...
  13. They don't pull any parts around here that I've ever seen, and their prices vary depending on what county they're located in. I paid about $250 for mine, and they have a weird deal about not including the brakes. That's no big deal because I want new drums, shoes, wheel cylinders, etc, anyway. The car currently stops very well, and I wanted a parking brake without having to reinvent the wheel. That's why I went with the drums. It's a pleasure car, and with the way I drive it, I'm pretty sure the rear brakes will outlive me at this point 🙂
  14. I didn't notice it when I first bought it, but I have an occasional "clunk" when I put the car into gear. Fortunately, I have an excellent guy who rebuilt the Sunny diff is right around the corner from me. Turns out the rear axle in my car is a Dana rear from a 50's Lincoln and any parts (of course) are NLA. After looking for a few weeks, I located a Ford 8.8" from a Ranger pickup in a wrecking yard. The cars tend to rotate fast here in So Cal, and I missed one a few weeks ago, so I jumped in my car and went to get it by myself. I did manage to get it pulled and wheel it through the cashier and out to the parking lot. I really lucked out because some guys just getting off of work from the yard came by and helped throw into my car. I would have never been able to get it into the car by myself. My neighbor helped me get it out when I got home, and we wrestled it into my side yard and on jack stands. A Ranger pickup with the optional 8.8 is fairly rare, but I also happen to get one with the exceptionally rare limited slip option, so it was a nice find. I'm ordering a new 3:73 ring and pinion, brakes, bearings, etc, etc and will get this all taken care of next month. In the column under "I'm never doing that again, ever" is getting a full size rear size axle by myself again. On the way home, I spotted this out in the wild. It's been a really long time since I've seen another one on the road like this.. It was funny seeing that out on a Tuesday afternoon. I thought I was the only one that did stuff like that..
  15. I was in on the tail end of Vietnam, but was stationed in Germany. I remember those grilles. The barracks were full of them. When I got out, I worked for many years in the Hi-Fi Stereo business, and never saw any of those other than the military outlets. Haven't seen those since then... They are cool, though. I haven't heard the name Sansui in years either, come to think of it... 🙂
  16. Those are really, really, really really old.. Do they have the tweeters on the top of the speaker?? I would bet someone bought those overseas when they were in the service. Those were Vietnam-era speakers sold through the PX to Armed Forces personnel.
  17. Try here.. https://ratsun.net/topic/40582-mrbigtankers-521/ Or here... https://ratsun.net/topic/75564-mrbigtanker-flew-the-coupe-finally/?tab=comments#comment-1613717 Or possibly here.. https://ratsun.net/topic/65681-mr-big-tankers-watermelon-wagon/?tab=comments#comment-1219323
  18. Here's a very strange one. https://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/d/tucson-1973-datsun-1200-vw/7387387731.html from the seller: THIS IS A 1970 VW PAN AND RUNNING GEAR WITH A 1973 DATSUN 1200 BODY ON IT. THE ENGINE IS A 1776 DUEL PORT WITH A 2 BARREL WEBER CARB. 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES. KYB SHOCKS
  19. My wife told me that my balls were bigger and more manly now. Maybe Nicky Minaj was correct about her cousin's friend.
