  3. Tehachapi ...... -- if you're a train buff, you already know The Loop is "right there." -- if you like great wine: Triassic Vineyards. Find the owner, Jim Arnold, tell him I sent you. -- if you like twist-y--turn-y drives: just west of Tehachapi via Hwy 58, is Caliente. Take the Caliente-Bodfish Road north toward Kernville ...... one of my favorite drives. -- I can keep you plenty busy ....... Cheers, Carl
  4. Please put me down for a tii cold start relay thingie !! I've got both a Curt Ingraham 3-row radiator and one of his cold start relays, so there's no reason not to have a Jsn in the box-o-parts. Cheers, Carl

  17. David, I've carried all kinds of big & bulky stuff in my '74tii that I don't think would fit into an E9. As for the looks of the E9, I was at the SoCal Vintage gathering last Saturday in Van Nuys and had to change my shirt several times for all the drooling I experienced when walking past the E9 section. What you need is a quiet motorcycle, ridden sedately on-road ...... here's mine: Cheers, Carl
  18. David, From another born & raised in L.A. kinda guy, the 2002tii is the way to go. I'm still in L.A. and am glad I've had a 2002 all these years, and not a 3.0. Also, when you go off-roading you need the ground clearance that the 2002 has ......... Cheers, Carl
  19. One of my college & Navy classmates. In NOV '74 he drove my brand-new '74tii. In DEC '74 he bought his own brand-new 2002. Picture taken around 1977-ish. Cheers, Carl
  20. as I've mentioned to KenH many times: we need nametags so we can recognize FAQ'ers. Cheers, Carl
  21. My nephew just stopped by the house. He said he saw a 2002 sitting in a used car lot on Laurel Canyon Blvd when he zoomed by heading south on the 170 Freeway (the 170 is elevated above Laurel Canyon). Rising to the google challenge, I surfed around and actually found it ..... the nose profile is quite obvious ...... Lots of pictures here ....... https://www.carsearchusaonline.com/inventory-details/?iid=702981478059769 Cheers, Carl
