issued by the bank right then so I will get the car and the title then.

Bought a car last week (bet you never have seen an Autozam AZ1 right hand drive with a 3 cylinder motorcycle engine, Japanese domestic market Kei car), flew to Tennessee and handed the seller a cashier's check. He waited 3 days before releasing the car too me. I suggested he call Chase Bank and verify the check was OK. I suspect his bank made him wait 3 days to get the money. But oh well, he has the car and I have the title so he will release it tomorrow to the shippers.

Oh well, back to 8 cars. Was down to 6 last week.

Thats a cute lookin little thing, how much MPG does it get? I used to have a 1971 honda Z600 coupe. Fun little car, not much bigger than a golf cart. The little cars were outlawed for US import because they failed the 72 safety test, so next up was the first Civic. In Japan the small cars are kie class (like key) because the fall into a small weight class, and they still, and have always been made, just imported here. Most all the Japanese car makers build them, and the new ones are very cool, high mileage, and sporty too. Musician Eric Clapton drives a sporty lookin Nissan I believe.

Before we get shut down for talkin about them "furrin jobs" I'll gladly take this opportunity to boast about my daily driver for the summer months 1991 Honda CRX HF. The HF stands for "high fuel", which it does, 55 MPG on the highway, bone stock. Clean AZ car I've had for about 12 years and finally just got around to giving it a face lift this spring as the AZ sun had burnt off the paint on the roof, and one side that was always parked into the sun. I also put on a trailer hitch to haul my 1947 Modernistic camper, but that was failure I found after about a 1500 mile trip, the little car was not quite up the the task

25 minutes of description of the AZ1. Not altogether repulsive.

Don't know about the MPG. Car has been modded to get the turbo boost up from 7 to 20 psi!

Thanks GB! Weeds took over the place this summer as I sat out with a broken leg for much of it. The place looked abandoned ! Now still a slight limp, but able to do whatever I want again, walking is really a good thing !
