I assume this is the only Eagle Talon in the country. It’s the second time it’s been on the tard but thankfully it’s in Wellington / the wrong island. Otherwise I would probably do something stupid like buy it.

Bringing Back the 80’s

August 4, 2013

Brought another one.

I’d been in the market for a while now to buy a tidy N13 to use as a rad 80’s daily along with something to do over winter while the good cars are in hibernation.  This wasn’t tidy but it popped up on $1 reserve so I took the plunge.
In keeping with tradition of my wise purchasing decisions when it comes to these cars it was:

– Broken
– No WOF
– And bonus points for it been located 450km’s away / bought sight unseen

Man I’m good at this.

It’s coming along now so I thought I’d update.

With and engine thats just as notorious for ticking HLA’s as 4Gs?

Modified EFI loom passes the test.

Welcome to 1980’s patriarchy society, where woman need a car designed just for them. Seriously Nissan.

Chatting with a childhood friend “Big Mike.” He’s one of the people I know now that I’ve known for the longest time, of all the people I know in my life. It was his twenty-fifth birthday. He says, “that’s a quarter of a century.” He’s right about that. He says it plainly, “I turned twenty-five today.”

I tell him happy birthday. I remember the awkward moment when I turned a quarter of a century old, but I feel neither bad nor good about it. Neither a man or a mouse. At the end of the day, we, as people, feel generally neither good nor bad about things. Everything ends at zero on the number-line. It doesn’t depress me, nor does it make me feel especially indifferent, that when the smoke clears I’ll be left blissfully indifferent. In fact, it evokes a feeling rather closer to joy than anything unjoyous.

That is, as long as I get this thing to OS Nationals 2014.

A friend who is an auto electrician made a 4 hour round trip last weekend to help sort the battery in the boot conversion. We used 0 gauge cable that I pulled out of a 3 series Beemer from pick-a-part for $6 where they come standard with the battery in the boot. The full conversion has a 500 amp master switch in the center console, properly crimped terminals, shielding for its full length, double heat shrunk, runs through the cabin in the factory cable guides so it isn’t noticeable under the carpet and then through the inner guards for the wire tuck.

Next stop is Racefab for the exhaust.
