Lambo for sure!

West Los Angeles(the areas around UCLA and the 10/405 fwys) has tons of them! Matter of fact, This area is FULL of exotics, vintage, rare and Toyota Prius Hybrids! Big money homes, cars, clothes due to the entertainment industry in that area with nearby Hollywood to add to the mix.

Did you know that Lamborgini's are named after famous bulls from bull fights?

(i.e. Aventador, Huracon etc.)

To keep on topic...I found the missing valve cover bolt in my garage today as I was cleaning it up. It was just sitting on the floor. Weird.

Some stuff:

Changed oil using Hyperlube as the first quart on the Teal Terror and the Black Beast. (My 97, wife's 98 Pathy). I use ordinary Carquest filters only because it doesn't matter if you're doing oil changes every 1,500 miles or so as I do.

Ordered a bunch of stuff from Amazon, including a second Baofeng handheld ham radio for this summer's DB Cooper Festival.

I'm hoping classic Nissans are represented there in force.

Like everyone else, I saw the stuff from DC today. I won't go political on you, but let me say as a US Army vet I don't think those things really help.

Can't do much else on work with the truck. Too cold and rains all the time. Waiting for warmer weather.

EDIT: Tomorrow a set of Osram Nightbreaker bulbs coming from Amazon for the Pathy. I can do those even in the rain.

I was slated to go into the Navy when I WAS 18 yrs. old. I went to the same recruiter as my older brother did when he served in the USAF. But I was 16 when I saw the recruiter and couldn't get signed up. My mom told me about a job opening when I was 17.5 yrs. old and wanted me to apply and take the test for a job. I took it and passed it and then passed the oral interview. I was hired on and have been working there since 08/1989. No regrets. Stable, good pay, great benefits and all the trimmings. But when I wanted to go into the Navy(my late father, may he rest in peace)and either be an MP or work the Flight Deck launching those planes and all of the danger that 4.5 acres of sovereign territory has to offer. Just seemed like the most awesome thing I could ever do in a job. I really wanted to work on that carrier. I am an adrenaline junkie! And I've liked danger my entire life for some reason. Anywho, my dad said, "You'll be so home sick when you get out on the high seas." Now my dad served as a Merchant Marine overseas and travelled the world before settling down. So I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! I never made onto that flight deck. But I still and always have an appetite for danger. Even in my current profession. Danger/death is only a few feet away, literally.

Back on topic...I found out the valve cover bolt that was laying on the garage floor for some strange reason, has stripped threads in the head where it holds down the valve cover.

Just effin' great...But I like a challenge and I'm up for it!

Found out today that my horn doesn't work. I need to adjust the hold down bolts, I guess. So the circuit closes and makes that "beep beep" sound. No horn right now. And in L.A., it's a MUST!

That size 10mm bolt is easy to match up. If it is a really tiny bit short, it won't matter. If it is a tiny bit too long, you can use a small flat washer if you have to. But generally any parts store with a good screw and bolt stock going can match it.

Finished hooking up hoses, wires and vacuum lines on Hector today, then filled power steering reservoir and radiator.
Attempted to crank truck and got a couple of halfhearted gasps out of it. Hoping to actually get it cranked and a test drive next time I get down there.
Hector 2.0 coming soon.

I recall it has been a long and bumpy road with Hector. Got my fingers crossed. So hard to use keyboard that way. Good Luck, MT
