    As the title says, I need to reinstall my tail-light lens and I am wondering what the best adhesive/sealant is to use. There was some fairly stiff white sealant on there, but it must have dried out...

    Hate to rain on your parade, but I thought # 13 was the lowest # Z out there. The first 12 were Nissan show cars and factory mules, IIRC. Bob Sharp had one of those that got the roof dented by a...

    Can this be saved ?

    This past Friday, I was cut-off by another driver and rear-ended a mini-van. No serious human injuries, but my beloved 71 240 was trashed. I hit the right rear of the van with my left front. Since it...

    Mr. K ?

    For some reason, I have Mr. K in my thoughts. Does anybody know how he is doing? I know he has a birthday coming up in Sept.; 103, IIRC. We all owe so much to him.
