We need a time machine.

 

McDonald's Menu - 1972

 

At the time, minimum wage was $1.60. Still want to go back?   ^_^

 

It's all relative. Anything from 1972 would sound cheap today. For example, in 1972 you could buy a brand new Datsun 1200 for $1600, or a new 510 for $2000. You can't buy a rusty shitbox 510 for $2000 now...

So your rockers kept flying off

 

Well, one did. That was enough for me.  :P

 

then with the rocker stoppers installed on the same engine they stopped flying off?  How hard did you rev it?  

 

Well, i suppose it's possible I didn't rev it as hard after the stoppers were installed, so your mileage may vary.   ^_^

Oh.My.Gawd. that is the WHITEST steering wheel I have ever seen.

 

I have a leather Nardi that matches it too...   :P

The bigger need for the time machine is to discover whether the ice cream machine was broken or not on that day.

 

If it's after 5pm, yes.

Look at how deep of the factory 280Z steering wheel is. If anything, that aftermarket wheel will be at the same position forward, just smaller diameter.

 

Exactly. This one is at most two inches deeper than stock, and that's with the 3-to-6 adapter. 

 

 

I've been looking at steering wheel options too. I might just wait and spend money on wheels and tires first. I've had a couple cheap steering wheels in the past and I was always disappointed with the quality. I'm temped to just buy an expensive name brand one this time around.

 

Personally never had much trouble out of "cheap" ones. I had one that bent on me, but it was flat, and I may have been a little too rough with it.. ^_^

 

The dished ones seem to be a good bit stiffer. 

 

I have a couple of flat Nardi wheels and a flat Personal, so if the dish is too much, I can change it. 

 

Also a big fan of the Mooneyes wheel in my 1200. It's a little less dish, and comes in a wide variety of colors...
