  • Pics from my little road trip...

    Hey everyone, ive been on the forum here for a while, but havent posted any pics of my car yet. I just took a road trip to Long Beach and San Diego last week and took a few pictures on my way. The drive was awesome, i left Sacramento and headed towards monterey, from there i took Highway 1 the rest of the way down the coast. My favorite section was the mountain road through Big Sur, plenty of tight banked turns. All of the pics are from a few stops through there.

    Here they are, hope you enjoy







    The entire drive down and my stay were trouble free... However on my drive home, i was not so lucky... :shit:

    I got all they way back up to san simeon, and then shortly into Big Sur my shift selector rod decides to disconnect from the transmission! I was stuck in second gear and made it into a parking lot at an Inn in the hills. The tow service was kind enough to let me use their lift at their shop to fix it. Luckily nothing was broken, the retaining clip was either never there or had popped off. At that point no shops were open and wouldnt be open again until monday. So i used the "safety wiring" technique used on bikes and wired the groove for the clip, then wired it back around the selector rod. It held and got me the rest of the way home. Yesterday i ordered all new parts, bushings , bearings, clips, etc. for the shifter.

        Thanks very much guys! But as we all know pictures do hide alot LOL. About all ive done appearance-wise is tint, bumper tape, and a new steering wheel. everything else ive done has been getting it running better, top end rebuild, etc. basically trying to get her mechanically sound so i can enjoy driving her. Once all that is done i plan on modding the motor for more power, or if it completely goes, a swap (dont shoot me!). Then lastly after everything else is sorted out, its time for bumpers body work and paint to get the appearance sorted out along with a set of 17" style 5's. Then i think i may be done, lol if its ever possible to be "done".

        88MPOWER- are you in the citrus heights area? i think i may have seen your car.

                              lol, looks like youve had some trouble! This was my first flat bed incident, with this car at least. Suspension is GC adjustables, koni shocks, and eibach (im pretty sure at least) springs.
