awesome, cheers 8)

No doubt you've already figured out the ASCD switch has to be flicked all the way to the left to engage (it then springs back to the centre position). It's also only active between 50-110km/h.

now here's the strange thing; the cruise on my DR30 stopped going when the oil pressure sender failed - go figure! Possibly a failsafe of some sort to prevent catastrophic engine damage.

Thanks. Yeah there are a total of 3 DR30's that I am aware of up here. I have had this one for a couple of years now. I daily drove it for a year then got into a little wreck. Now a year + later I have pieced everything together to have it fixed up.

I am keeping the FJ20. Its getting rebuilt and and I am putting it in my 510. That's funny about your wife because my wife thinks the DR30 is super ugly and doesn't miss a chance to tell me. And that white one at Nissanfest is super nice. Its a 30th anniversary one and its super clean. Last I checked Ishii motors actually had another white one. If I remember both are for sale.

yea, i think they were asking 8-10k? i would have loved to get that for my wife but she just got a te72 corolla wagon a few months ago, sold her s13 for something bigger for our new born, was actually looking for a 510 wagon during her pregnancy but couldn't find anything that wasn't all rusted out or super expensive. so she settled for the corolla one instead, just did the "quad" light conversion and its look like a 510 lol.

I wish, I don't think it will be done in time. I have an all original 1976 Porsche 912e that I might take out of storage and take. I just have to figure out if I'll be in town early next month.
