@jarrett my Camaro envies your BRZ’s ability to fit 4 tires for a track day. I can fit one (1) stock 20” wheel in the trunk, 2 in the back seat, and one in the passenger seat. NOT super helpful hahaha.
The pass-thru trunks are a great feature though. I can fit an 8’ surfboard in the Camaro 😂
@urambo-tauro Not that I know of. These are Otto Super Belts from Clark's Corvair, which are supposed to hold the pulleys better than the stock ones or the ones you can get at regular parts stores. We'll see, automatics are supposed to be less susceptible to throwing belts than manuals to begin with, plus the '64s do allegedly have deeper pulley grooves as well as the belt guides and magnesium fan.
@mybirdistheword Unless one has endless funds or OCD issues, restoration is almost always a financial black hole and an endless money pit. Smart money buys someone else's completed project (usually at a massive loss to the seller), or finds a nice roadworthy driver car and deals with imperfections.
@nth256 I'd offer a slight refinement among types of SCCA members:
SCCA members walking should be "autocrossers and track night drivers"
Spec miata image should read "club racing drivers walking"
The mustang image should read "spec miata drivers walking".
Every road racer in a fender'd car drops two (or more) wheels off the inside of the track in a tighter corner/when advantageous to do so. Spec miata drivers have a tendency to be unable to keep themselves from stacking it up into each other at every opportunity, though.
@jminer me too. They're printed by shapeways. My buddy @pnwdiecastcustoms on Instagram will basically design any wheel in 1:64 and he has a shapeways link in his bio. All I have to do is tell him what I'm looking for and BAM! It's in my mailbox
@dipodomysdeserti Those grips look amazing! I have one pair of Vans in my closet but they don’t get a lot of wear. For me it is Sambas almost every day, chucks occasionally and vans only every once in a while.
I get 6-9 months out of a pair of Sambas, I’ll have to give the pair of Vans you mention a try.
@ranwhenparked I used to have the prefect schedule Tuesday-Friday, and a short day (11-5) on Friday before the pandemic hit, but when I came back to work someone else was working Tuesdays and I still wanted 4 days. At least Friday is still a half day.
I haven’t paid much attention to old CJ values lately, is $13k reasonable for this?
I'd rather not the 'glass tub but it's certainly better than rust. Love they kept the snorkel cut hood though. I can't pay five figures for a Hurricane 4, but it seems clean. But I'm also more of an AMC Jeep fan with the later CJ-5 than the Willys and Kaiser stuff (at least to own).
