    Default 2006 MSA event in April, WHO'S GOING??

    We (me and the wife) just registered at the Hotel across from the events center for the the 2006 MSA event in Orange CA. It's at the end of April (fri. the 28 thru the 30th)

    I'll be there with both harness's in hand for sale to the locals. (it might help pay for some of the trip) It's 1205 miles there, from my front door to the events in Orange.

    We just wanted to know who all, from here, is going to be there?

    With a new baby on the way and a military move scheduled later this year, I must pass on the MSA nationals. Had planned to road trip from the east coast earlier this year, but life happens.

    B.S. you got a license and a Z? we're going and we live in Marysville. You're even closer then we are.

    I think we're (me, the wife and JZM) leaving on WED, the 26th of April and staying till sunday. Not real sure yet.

    I'd like to meet some people on the way. So if you are going and somewhere near I-5 when we pass by, join us. We're going to try and figure out a route and aprox. times that we'll be near each city.

    Besides, the more in the group, on the way down, the more fun and SAFE it'll be. I'm bringing a jug of water and half a case of oil, tools and harness's. for starters

    And for those of you who don't know yet, JZM IS a Z-Car mechanic, if there ever was such a thing. It's all he does.

    He's done quite a few things to my car as well as thousands of other Z's from 69' to 2006' models. He's my personal "Jesus" when I need help, opinions or parts.

    If you have a question about the mechanical side of your Z, Ask JZM.

    Love ya man,
    Dave.

    Well, the only thing that would prevent me from attending would be a dirt nap. Now showing up with my 240 is always dependant upon the weather!
    If its a high probability of rain, like last year, the Z car stays in the garage! WE NO DRIVEY THE Z IN THE RAIN....period!!! I'll still be there, rain or shine. Hope to see some of you there. Also, I hope exhibit parking issues have gotten better....if you've been there done that, you know what I'm talking about. Show up way early, have made arrangements to park with a specific group, then have the folks directing the parking effort poo poo on it and stick you out in the friggin boonies!!! Very disappointing to say the least. I'm trying to be optimistic about it this year...we'll see.

    No license.
    No running Z.
    I'm going to go next year, I hope.
    I failed my written, and besides me being seventeen now means lower insurance. Haha.

    This will be my first Z event. I picked up my Z late last year. I am looking forward to meeting other members of the club. I only have to come from Pomona, so it won't be a long drive. The Z hasn't been started in eight years, so I better get moving on getting it up and running.

    Not going to be able to go this year. Depending on the date next year I might be able to work it in with a trip down to LA that I will have to make (son's graduation). Will be able to do one trip down next year, and might be able to extend it some. But won't be able to swing two trips, so if the date is too far from mid-May, next year is out too.

    Dave, if you have the time on the way, you should stop for food or fuel in the Eugene area and maybe we could hook up for a short visit.

    We'll try to work it into the schedule, We're trying to figure out fuel, food, relatives along the way and all the rest. I would definately like to stop by for a few minutes at least. I'll get your address and phone number later.

    I'm gonna plug all the addresses into the map and shoot for the best. We're leaving on WED. between 9 and 10 am? might be into Oregon by mid-afternoon.

    Marysville is 201 miles from the border, I just put my MSD 6AL and Accel Super Coil into the red Z and should have better gas milage on the way down.
    I gapped the plugs out to .060 from .032 fires right up but the real test will be in the morning when it's cold.

    Thank you for the invite,
    Dave.

    Default New thought, need a favor?

    Say, to all you MSA-bound Washington residents: Anyone want to do me a favor? Will there be room in one of the cars on the South-bound leg to haul a pair of door panels from Tacoma to Eugene? I'd be happy to meet at some easily freeway accessible spot, and would be happy to donate to the cause. Any volunteers? Send me a PM!

    I'll get back to you on that. I might be able to work it into the plans, especially if we're gonna stop by your place anyways.

    I'm going to order 2 shirts from Mike on the first week of April. Both me and the wife will have them slightly modified with our screen names on the back or something.

    That way, when we're down in Orange, If you see some guy with a Nissan R/T (Racing Team) hat on and a good looking blonde both wearing Classiczcars shirts, It might be me and her.

    I'm also going to try and bring some extra harness's to the event. It might help pay for the trip home or some parts from the swap meet. Me being like EVERY ONE else here, I gotta hell of a list of Iwants, Ineeds, and the gotta haves.

    I swear, my whole life for the last week has been centered around the trip and everything associated with it.

    I'm going. have to, it's a magazine thing. leaving ABQ on Thursday morning and hope to get in early Friday afternoon. Two things I can't miss why I'm there. One is the dent and scratch sale (I'm a cheap ba$tard) and going to that Japanese Auto Parts store not far from Knotts Berry (sp?). That place is great especially with all the cool stuff upstairs.

    Driving up from San Diego...but my Zs are staying at home, will drive the G35 6MT instead. I know many guys from my club plan to be there. I love this show, will get there early. How about the garage sale on Saturday? I am thinking about driving up for it....but with gas prices what they are I am wondering if it is worth it. I believe I meet Ron last year at the display of the BRE cars; nice guy.

    Me and Leah (70' 240Z) and JZM (90' 300ZXT) are leaving on WED. morning and taking a nice leisurely pace to get there. We'll hit Northern California by Wed. night and find a motel.

    It's over 1200 miles for us to get there and hopefully we'll have the new 5-speed in by then. I can't even imagine how much more I'll spend on gas if I don't have the 5-speed in by then.

    Here's the short story....... found a 79'ZX 5-speed for $77 at the pull-a-part yard. pulled my tranni and installed the new one (w/ new clutch, T.O.B, pressure plate, and resurfaced flywheel..... NO CLUTCH release!

    pulled it and swapped the short TOBearing sleeve for the longer ZX one, re-installed it. STILL NO Clutch engagement.

    pulled it out again (3rd pull) and swapped the pressure plate for my old one, swapped back to the short TOB sleeve......IT WORKS.... but it slips real bad.

    pulled it out for the last time (4th pull) (as far as I was concerned) and put in my old clutch plate then re-installed the tranni for the 4th time. NO SLIPPAGE!!! BUT....... now first and second gear are making a real bad noise..

    Thats right, the new 5-speed has a bad main bearing and needs to be pulled (AGAIN!!!!!) and be rebuilt.

    Soooo......

    5-speed tranni and driveline for the 70'Z...........$77
    gas to get wrong clutch ass. from a friend........$10
    Lotion for my torn up back and hand cleaner.....$5

    pissed off, stupid look on my face when JZM tell me that the tranni has to be pulled again and be rebuilt............................ Pricelesss

    That's my week in a nut shell

    Don't tell me stories like that! I'm swapping a four speed into my car (replacing the automatic) next Tuesday. Don't want to hear no "do it five times" horror stories.

    It was all because the clutch was free and not double checked.

    As for the tranni being bad, thats what you get for $77 now-a-days.

    I got 2 weeks (as of today) to get it right. cross your fingers for me.

    I just registered for the show. This will be my second time I attend this show. This has been stirring for a while, but I did not want to mention it until I had paid for the show. I will be driving down to San Diego on Thurs (Pharmacy convention for my gf), and driving up to LA on Saturday. I am really looking forward to this show. I hope to meet all of you there.

    See you all there,

    Have fun Ben, would have liked to meet up and talked and see your beautiful new wheels.

    OK, so now I'm supposed to feel better? My transmission came free with the car, and I have two free clutches to choose from. I already identified that one of the free pressure plates does not match my bearing collar, I was hoping that would be the only issue.

    I'll cross my fingers for you as long as you do yours for me, too.

    Take lots of pictures! I'll most likely miss MSA this year because of the roadster show in Solvang. In fact we'll probably pass Ben somewhere on the road Saturday morning going in opposite directions.
