So we're having record-breaking temperatures here in Portland, Oregon. I decided to not drive my daily driver to work (AE86) but instead drive a 70s car. Seems crazy, huh. The main reason is my Corolla is black. Number two, you know all the fake scoops and vents on the early cars? Well, they really work! Remember Toyota bragging about 'flow-thru ventilation' or whatever? It's true! Fresh air barely wanders through my AE86. Today I drove my Datsun 1200 with the wing windows pointed inwards, it was great!
I guess what I'm trying to say is I love my old cars.
Funny, it barely cracked 80 here today, and it's been raining off and on all week.
Someone must have switch our weather when we weren't looking. :P
I need to fix the wing windows on the Hako, they're a bit too loose and flop back to the closed position once the car gets moving. Hmm...maybe jam some nylon washers in the hinges or something?
Once we hit the aussie summer I think we will need to find a solution
DF you have that right! we have the heat AND the humidity that should be down there lol. I am staying in the basement with the ac on and freezing my butt off. But I gotta say this I like driving modern cars for DD cause ac is a godsend.
And littlejason I am Big Jason lol, my name is Jason also and I am 6'4 lol.
We're having record heat in the Seattle area, too. I rode my old XS11 to work, and it was like sitting in front of a car heater on full blast. 100 degree air at 70 mph isn't comfortable in the least. I can't imagine my old air-cooled engine was enjoying it, either.
its hot all year long down here..
avg is 32 degrees celcius summer or rainy season are the same..
even get worse in rainy season...same avg. temp with more humidity..
plus lotsa acid rains for your Jtins..
most of da olskool jtin i saw running around here always had the AC turned on in daytime...
no AC?..sweat n sweat summore baby.. :lol:
What surprises me is that the main strem media is just now telling us about how wide spread the heat is. It's incredibly vast over serveral states.
Guess I'll go throw some ice in my face.
See you all around.
Been pretty hot lately. Today was milder though.
Don't rub it in. :P
