They probably did ,,i remember seeing the same set up but dont remember on what''any thing to save weight

I know the REAL one i saw had a decal ,iThink on the speedometer face or dashmthat read

That crack was about my engine running like ka ka earlier today when I installed a PCV and breather and everything went to stink.

Thank stars, it was only some (probably Pugsy inflicted) debris in the idle circuit which a bit of compressed air seemed to take care of.

PCV and breather are both hooked up now. Need to get the correct valve and new grommet, but this temporary hookup will keep the sniffer cops at bay while I take the car to the mechanics.

Well................Nick out canyon carving bumped a curb and we had to bring the car back to the shop to check it's alignment, didn't do a thing, it was just a tap thank goodness. Well it was there we adjusted the parking brake and took care of a few other things, under body shield that was loose, took care of a rattle that was driving him nuts. All in all, that little sucker HANDLES! HOLY CRAP that thing HANDLES!

When I think of the things I did with my Gran Sport like sway bars and steering box and gas shocks and all that, it really handles damn good. This little Miata makes it look like a friggin school bus, holy crap!

Suns out, put the top down, what a nice little drive.

He has been having such fun with it, taking it out to roads I use to go all the time on my motorcycle and my Gran Sport, across the bay by "Alice's Restaurant" LOL Hyws 35/92/9 having FUN for sure! He took it up Mount Hamilton https://www.sfgate.com/outdoors/sund...op-2537803.php after work the other night.



He is having a ball and I am so happy to see it.

Brian

Same as last time, happy healing. Sounds like Murphy's law got the drop on you.

Yesterday at the last cross street before home, a kid on a bicycle nearly took my freedom and car. I had no stop sign but the cross street does. Kid is planning to ride straight across but does not look until too late. I had already seen him and he was going faster than me but all within one second, we saw each other and he braked, realized it wasn't enough, and laid it down just as I passed. I'm not that fast, best I coulda done was bump him but not run him over. He managed to land in grass and got up and rode away lickety split. Nobody was around and I'd have been crucified by parents who raised kids that ignorant. Theres one family with a bunch of kids that are almost like a herd of cattle across the highway. They expect you to drive through a crowd with six inches on either side while they holler "Give me your car!" Kids these days got a sense of entitlement the size of Texas. I ain't even feeling grumpy, thats just how it is. In summer you just have to stop down the street and wait for them to see you and part so you can get home. That is the most precarious driving condition I can imagine. At least when I'm in the purple car they acknowledge my existence when I need by.

Does my grump fest rant even out Brian's heavenly bliss post? If not, heres more.

I also mowed the back yard today finally. Makes my blood boil just going out there, still. All the crap the neighbor threw onto my property... and the gigantic dead tree thats aimed at my garage... muttering drowned out by mower was best I could do and I left the last few yards by the fence uncut. Screw it, I don't even want to go back there anymore because one more cop call with false accusations might set me off. I have to be real careful since that kid busted my arm and got away with it. It may be fall before I see my way clear to pick up in the yard.

These things are why I call the '69 my sanity preservation machine, and why I hate to drive it anymore with so many people trying to destroy.The world is cruel to shiny things!

On a positive note, the GP drives fine in the rain now. Good grip and the new wiper blades are quietest ever.
