  1. Nope, it was a face lift 2 door and the guy's name is Donnie. This was only 8 months ago.
  2. No I think you are thinking of a different car. The one I saw was brown as I recall, and it was mostly stock, and the guy was the original owner. I'm sure I'll go to some shows, just don't know which ones, or with which cars.
  3. I saw one other car at a show at the Petersen Museum last July. Turns out the owner lives around the block from me, but I haven't seen his car since that day.
  4. I don't think there are that many 1st gen. 626's still running in all of the US.
  5. Ok, I decided to use more force and I managed to pull the lever out. I can hear the flap moving too, yay! It probably could use a little lubrication to operate easier, but it's good for now. I will have to wait until the next time I drive the car to see if that stops the unwanted air flow. Thank you for confirming the operation. And the explanation about the optional A/C makes sense too. Zoom zoom!
  6. Thanks for the pics and description. So you really do pull the lever out or push it in? Mine doesn't seem to go in or out, it only moves to the right (as long as you hold it there). Maybe something is seized up in my car? I don't want to force it too hard and break something (else?). Does yours also move to the right (a little)? What is that function?
  7. So I've been trying to figure out how the Fresh air/Recirculated air switch is supposed to work, but I have been failing miserably. Currently is seems like it's only letting fresh outside air in, because when I'm driving air is coming through the vents even though the fan is switched off. Sometimes I want to be able to switch to Recir. so that no air will come in. There is a lever that says PULL REC. When I try to pull it, it doesn't move (I'm not going to force it). Likewise if I try to push it, it doesn't move. It does however move to the right, but it seems spring loaded, and will always return to the left when I let go. I have tried moving the lever to the right while I have been driving, but nothing seems to change regarding the air flow. Can someone explain if I'm not operating this properly, or if there is a mechanical problem. Unfortunately I didn't get an owners manual, so I can't look this up. Thanks.
  8. I probably would have gone to that show, but I was out of town at that time, as I often am. I was also gone for the JCCS.
  9. The V8 will go in my Opel (it's smog exempt). Not going to do any permanent mods on my 626. And here's a token pic from my phone.
  10. I doubt this car has any real TWR connection, doesn't have the wheels either.
  11. Interesting car, mods, and price. I had not seen that TWR ad before, but have seen pics. Front spoiler looks way different, rear spoiler looks a little narrower. Was Hounds-tooth an OEM option, or is this re-upholstered? The all black interior looks boring compared to mine. This car is very clean, but not as clean as mine. Is there any sources for spoilers now, either front or rear?
  12. I was just curious, but post seems to have disappeared.
  13. Well, maybe I won't make this car Bosozoku, but I really do want to make a crazy Boso car out of something else some day.
  14. Well there were plenty of pics in the Ebay listing, but yes I'll be taking new pics for sure. I will document all the mods I do along the way. I'm going to make it a Bosozoku car!
