    Re: Healey model and year

    I hope you're not contemplating buying this thing. Or receiving it as a gift.

    If it comes with a payment for hauling it away, hold out for big bucks.

    Re: No Job is Really Simple

    Well, I think as you may have picked up, my comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek and a play on words ("off the streets" when "on the streets" is a car's natural habitat). I'm well aware that for some...

    Re: No Job is Really Simple

    Hmmm... if your Healey "keeps you off the streets," I think there's something wrong with that picture.

    Re: Yet Another Oil Question!

    That brings up the whole philosophical question about these matters, including additives (for oil and gas).

    The mechanic didn't say anything bad about VR1 or recommend against it. He merely...

    Re: Yet Another Oil Question!

    I used VR1 in all of my vintage cars for several years, but on the recommendation of a mechanic friend a couple of years ago I switched to Penn Grade Partial Synthetic (used to be called Brad Penn). ...
  8. Re: Interesting Jalopnik article on BEING TOUGH ON TODAY'S ROADS !!

    I don't know of a kit for that, but I have seen a couple of custom jobs like that done by owners.

    Conversely, there WAS a kit for adding a boot lid, but apart from pictures I've never seen one.

    Re: Fuel pump inertia cutoff switch

    Both 121.5 VHF and 243 UHF are the "guard" frequencies that ELTs broadcast on. A landing would have to be really hard - a crash on the runway, essentially - to set it off. It's meant for really...

  11. Re: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Goes Full Lockdown

    I could live with the warning light for a long time - and will, actually - but you can't get through Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality testing with any warning lights on. So I will likely...
  12. Re: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Goes Full Lockdown

    Thanks gonzo. If only life with an exotic car were so simple.

    I called the dealership about resetting the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light. I spoke with one of their lead...

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    I know I'm supposed to know this, but did the 100S come with 54-spoke wheels? They were around back in that era.

    I drove a Defender several times, just like the one in the article, belonging to Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market. In short, there is nothing redeeming about it. Slow, awkward,...

  20. Re: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Goes Full Lockdown

    It's a pretty rare Honda owner who does their own repairs. Why they get to benefit from more reliable design and engineering remains a mystery in my book. Maybe Aston Martin could borrow a few of...

    No, that one is long gone. My current Portland-based Bugeye is also Nevada Beige, has a 1275, five-speed, front discs, alternator with tach conversion, electric fuel pump, factory hardtop (white),...

    No, this is the one here in Portland with me.

    The one I keep in Louisville will get exercised later in September when I drive it to Encounter in New Jersey.
  25. Re: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Goes Full Lockdown

    I know the history of the car. One previous owner. Purchased at Dimmitt Auto Group in Florida. The first owner traded it in and I bought it from the same dealer after seeing the ad for it on eBay...
