Wow! Shiny floor! I'm jealous.

Oh, and the car looks amazing. Lots of cleaning I suppose?

Looks great Rocky! I see your car that of course is a very close vin to mine has the DOT not legal pop out rear windows as does mine. Did it also come with the illegal Carello halogen headlights? :)

I didn’t realize the pop out windows weren’t legal.

I changed out my lights to Euro Hella bulbs, with a Toyota harness/relay kit.

So you might say….

PS…. Actually, it seem to be some trick of lighting, it’s really flattering to the car!

(It doesn’t seem to work on me, though!)

Looks great Rocky! I see your car has the swing out rear side windows like mine does even though the DOT declared them not safe for the USA. Did it also come with the Carello headlights? :)

That is a good question…. I changed these bulbs for Hella E-Code headlights (See page 19 of this thread), but didn’t write down what was originally installed….

I felt like they were Lucas, but can’t recall for sure!

I’ll check into it when I return to my home base!

Rocky, sounds like another great road trip!

We lived in LA and Sacramento back in the early 1990s. Still a favourite destination.

Enjoy the rest of your travels!

Love the picture with the tank. The car looks fantastic, the shut lines, the silver paint and those wheels. Oh, and let me know if you need those rubles back!

(Re)Installed my FBO Timing limit plate.

This will allow me to advance my static timing, and yet limit total timing to 34*. I am using the 16* notches…

Now I have to warm up the car, and set the initial timing…
