  1. I'll guess June, 2014. So how old is too old? The tires on my Buick were installed at least 5 years ago.
  2. "...67300 original miles on a survivor driver. Fresh paint,......." Is "survivor" the new "barn find"?
  3. Nice car. Have you considered trying to auction it on Bring a Trailer? Original, one owner cars seem to do well there.
  4. I'm checking the temp at the radiator with a digital thermometer which I know is accurate. The car was restored and the gauges were refurbished. I guess I need to find the reciept for that work and call the folks that did it.
  5. Are all the louvers on the side of the hood free from any kind of obstruction?
  6. The coolant temperature gauge on my '30 consistantly reads about 15-20 degrees higher then the actual temperature. Is there a way to adjust/calibrate the gauge so it reads more accurately?
  7. This is what we did and it worked great.
  8. I had the same problem, which was caused by a number of issues. A. I had the wrong fan with a pulley that made it spin slower then it should B. The impeller in the water pump was worn to the point it didn't do much pumping C. My radiator was blocked in places. D. My ignition advance was not attached properly, so I could not advance it E. My gauge in the car reads too warm. Hope this helps
  9. And the award for least helpful title for a thread on an antique car form goes to......😉
  10. I checked Bob's web site and posted a link earlier today. Then I noticed it is marked "Sold Out", so i deleted my post. It certainly wouldn't hurt to give Bob a call. EDIT: I was looking at the wrong item. Try this: http://bobsautomobilia.com/dash-and-steering-control-items/ignition-switch-lever-1929-31-all-see-listing.-sl-295/
  11. You can't. I didn't realize the VIN on the door was the only place it exisited.
  12. If the truck has current registration, the seller should be able to get a duplicate title. If he can't, refer to Matt Harwood's answer.
  13. The four colors from the left were what was offered from the factory (green, blue, tan and grey).
  14. They were all manufactured right-hand drive and only sold in Japan in 1991. There have been a few left-hand drive conversions done, but I think that defeats the point of buying the car. Quite a few have made their way to England and there's a good club there for support (in English). http://www.figaroownersclub.com/ The mechanics of the car are the same as the Nissan Micra, so the powertrain is somewhat common. It has a 1 liter turbocharged I4 that puts out about 70HP. All the cars are automatics. Even with the small engine and slushbox, it will keep up with traffic. I've had mine up to 100KM/hr (the speedo is in KM) which is 62MPH with no problem. I doubt I would ever take it for a long trip on the highway.
  15. I bought one a few months ago and I'm having an absolute blast with it. Duncan Imports in Virgina has a bunch for sale: http://www.duncanimports.com/. This isn't where I got mine from, so I can't attest as to whether they are good to do business with.
