Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Roger, this is true, and actually a very good point =D> For the USofA cars, indeed the headlights need to be on, in order for the fog lamps to work :-k In addition, if you turn on the high beams while the fogs are on, they will turn off ](*,) Silly DOT, surely some of this can be bypassed, but Song,...

Re: Pacific Sharkfest 2018 pix

First stop was the old schoolhouse in the town of Bodega, which was in one of the movie scenes 8)

We took over the street in front of the schoolhouse, 3 cars wide, 34 in all :shock:

I think the schoolhouse was built in 1871 or something like that :-k

Great color Agreed, and I should know #-o I'll be following this one, although I don't see much evidence that it is in fact a 635, slushbox (no dogleg manual tranny), no rubber ducky rear spoiler, etc. :-?

Song, can you mask the entire panel good enough so that you can reshoot the whole thing :-k

Appears that you can sand and polish that area for ever, but it's never gonna appear like the rest of the panel [-X
