Man I'd dig A/C but don't want to molest er. So... I'll keep my sauna instead. Still awesome!



I'm currently dealing with getting the heater working. Do you know if the dash has to be removed for the entire heater assembly to be taken out for diagnosis?

The 80's called, said they wanted some luxury. Looks like my brother went out and got a 86 camry as his first vehicle.

Been chaos in the neighboring towns b/c of the fires, so not much has been done. Not a single stall and real close to 287k.


I did located the dealership where she was sold though. Before/ Present day:

#1519756 California approved engine swaps.

L-series are solid & dependable. If it runs, then drive it till the horses jump the fence. At the same time you can collect and build up a swap-able drive-train.


Two cents on smog... Having dealt with smog recently, I can tell you it's quite informative. Get a manual and do a detailed analysis of complete emissions equipment. Diagnose, Replace & Test. Not that difficult nor a hassle. Once it passes it's a matter of maintaining the equipment.

Process is expensive.


Knowledge is base so a stack of manuals is gold.  Don't know if this helps but it's something.

Researching the plate number, it looks like this car was on the road at least as late as 2013 when someone made an abandoned vehicle complaint about it.  It looks as if it was registered to someone named Terry Lee.  Unfortunately the only photos I have left are black and white, but according to the S.F. Parking & Traffic documents, it was blue.

Renewal fees show some info. It looks like someone had its registration paid till June 2017. It's a 74 which is most likely the only reason it's been kept.

210 emblems that aren't cracked, just have peeling fake chrome. Best set I've seen in years.

Lastly probably the best thing to enjoy long trips.

You can buy a few L 5 speeds for the cost of an A 5 speed. And they're stronger also.


Ya'll won't believe what I located at PnP! Wasn't expecting to see any datsuns. What a score.


Got a sweet FS5W60A (first gear towards dash) from a very, very, rusty 79 hatch 210. Fit nicely in the boot area.

Got some more goodies but that's the icing, so I'll dump em tomorrow.
