The zoom and panned still pictures were emailed to you from behind the door?

I thought my Type I five-speed was expensive at $1500 (in the 1990s).

UHHH: $1500 WAS expensive in the '90's. I was there and remember that it was like 2 months takehome pay. You could buy 2 or 3 ragtop bugs for that much money.

Btw: didn't the news say your beloved fairgrounds burnt up yesterday?

You're right of course. $450 was for the basic rebuild. I've forgotten what I paid for my 1958 convertible but that sounds about right. I've still got the build sheet and the transaxle. It's perched on the tongue of my Airstream.

I can't find anything this morning about the OCF. The State fairgrounds (in Salem) is an evacuation center. But the Country Fair retreated into the cloud this year: https://www.oregoncountryfair.org/virtual-fair/

The Holiday Ranch fire itself is East of I-5.

edit:
Phoenix, Talent, Blue River, Vida and Detroit are gone.

More updates:



So the fuel system on these cars is a CIS system, not really the best for performance, but it's what I have and it was working fine so I'm going to reuse it. In this video, I tear down the entire system, show all the deteriorated parts, smash out the fuel injection seats so I can get the runners powdercoated. Really don't know what I'm doing at this point, so just documenting the hell out of it and hoping it goes back together okay once I get all the parts back. Also planning on cleaning the injectors before reinstalling. Really want to get this together before winter so I'm going to be cranking on this pretty hard from this point forward.

Hmmm kinda looks like the bosch airtronic system. Might want to look into replacing the injectors if they are available.

They're available.... but... I'm broke from the trans rebuild. So I'm cleaning what I have.

I'm surprised more of the nuts didn't stick. I didn't even see penetrant on the table. Somebody has had that fuel regulator off before maybe. Also surprised the inserts didn't crumble coming out. A friendly caution: wear a dust mask when sanding that aluminum. The dust is toxic.

Still, removing those casting marks was a good idea... it will emphasize the curves better.
