  1. I've been around '02s for 45+ years and have never seen those on a car. Did Hoffman ever bring them to America? Attached pics are the typical trim rings for '67/8s that we're referring to. Mac.
  2. Like Mike says, The first type has "square" (actually trapezoid) trim rings are VERY soft aluminum. Ask me how I know. On. second thought, don't ask me how I know. lol Mac.
  3. Very Private e-mail.  NOT for general consumption.


    I like your attitude toward 2+ liter Datsun's in vintage racing.  (they can get big valve lift/breathing)

    BUT, if ya can't beat 'em, and ya want to,  join 'em?  .................maybe?


    Just assemble an Evo 2.5ltr  E30 M3 block, 94mm bore & 84mm crank, put an 121/E12 big valve, flowed head on it , 48/50mm Webers, 12.5 cr pistons and only you and I would know.  


    During the good old days of IMSA-RS: "It's all about Rules Interpretation".  (At least that's what the guys building the cars said.).  


    That's my story and I'm sticking' to it.  



  4. What leads you to believe the Datsun 510s had 2+ liters? (Is that keeping within the "spirit of the game"?) Level the playing field! Mac. PS,. A Schnitzer twin-cam would be overkill.
  5. Bid to $24,000. Reserve Not Met. Mac
  6. Pair,(left & right) RED CENTER tail light lens' Clear surfaces, No cracks, breaks, scratches, melted facets, etc. Excellent condition.. Edit ; Top pic is of the OUTSIDE, bottom pic is of the INSIDE. (look almost identical don't they?) PayPal works for me. Mac.
  7. Got discharged from the army. Brought home a'69 Triumph 650 T-120R Bonneville. Added a '65 Pontiac GTO. White/blue, 389 Tri-power, 4-spd, posi diff. A year and a half later sold the Goat, rode the bike to the BMW dealer. Bought a Malaga/skai '02. That was October '71. Had one ever since(not the original one though). Mac
  8. For our 2002s: The only close ratio 5-spd shown in either the factory parts book(Orange) or the factory maintenance books(Blue) is the 3.368(1st gear). The 2.30, 2.71 and 2.91 units were/are FIA homologation Group 2 specials. None of us were/are special enough to have our names on "the list". Not then, not now. Sorry. Mac.
  9. Lucky guy. He's got either Euro 10:1 cr or '72 USA 9.0:1 cr pistons. Nice find. BATHTUBS BABY! Mac
  10. Good for the founders/creators. Now they're multi-millionaires. It morphed into a Social Media site about a year ago. Trucks and all. Corporate buy-out,..........There goes the neighborhood. It was good while it lasted. Mac.
  11. Don't feel so bad. Illinois' got ya beat. I mailed in my license renewal April 30. Now the Secretary of States office tells everyone it MIGHT take until NOVEMBER 1. (that'll be six months if anyone is counting). I'm driving anyway. But this is Illinois and we all know Illinois never does anything right. Mac.
  12. So, How's the book coming along Mike? Mac.
  13. +1 But, I think you've been overly kind. Mac
  14. I've got the exact same gas cap on my car. My key is stamped A5. Maybe that will aim your locksmith in the right direction. Good Luck. mc
