    Fifty years ago today, when I was 17, I bought my 1600. It was manufactured on Feb. 2, 1968. I wonder where it was hiding for those 13 months before I bought it. Maybe everyone wanted 2002s. It still has the original engine with 298,000 miles. I have done numerous upgrades to it throughout the years, but I still have most of the original parts in storage, including the spark plugs and tires.

    I just love to bask in the shininess after a thorough cleaning up like this!

    Got some more chrome on, fitted the trunk opening mechanism and back end. Then it was going dark so I took these pictures.

    I started it!! And it ran! First try and everything. It pissed fuel everywhere and the alternator light stays on with the key off but who cares, it runs! On my way to the store for hose clamps.

    I fiddled with it. Opened the plug gap up from .026" to .028". I like the tool on the left for the bending of the tab and the wire kind on the right for a gauge. I think they look okay. (?) AFR spends most of the time around 14 while driving. It drops to 12.25ish when I mash the pedal. I played with the idle mix screw and timing at 785 rpm idle. Seems happiest at 12.5 AFR, or just under. Dwell at 61* puts idle at 11* advance and bumping dwell up to 64* drops advance to 8*. I settled back in at 61*. Advance increases with idle speed, so I may need to tighten up the non-looped spring in the advance mechanism. I wonder if a little more tension there would steady up the mark under the light? It moves a little now. (that'd be the one on the left) I made a little copper shim for the throttle mechanism. I welded up the worn pin back when I rebuilt the carb in 2012 and it got a little play in it over the last 24k miles. Seemed like a simple fix and I like copper.

    What did I do to my car today? Absolutely nothing for once. Drove it to the Vancouver International Auto Show. The best part of the show for me was my car as the cover of a Hagerty brochure. That's what I call Soft Car Porn...AND MINE IS A CENTERFOLD. Sorry for the blatant raving. Joked with my buddy when we saw a hotrod with a mirror underneath to view the details on the bottom of the car. He says "hey you need a mirror to show off your rear subframe". Funny.

    The new elbow grease isn't as good as the old stuff. That stuff really got things done! I'm using up the last of my old tube... sparingly. We all want to dip it in some magical chemical and have it come out in mint condition. For me, it is a hands on process using a variety of chemicals, brushes, picks, etc. Bamboo skewers. Slice the end like a chisel. Smash the end it becomes a little brush. Put 0000 steel wool on the tip to get into the corners. Shorten the bristles on tooth brushes, using scissors. Shorten acid-brush bristles too. This one's been plumbed with carb-clean-R-injection. Puts the solvent where you want it and rinses the brush at the same time.
