Started the car tonight....

Ok, so what else is new? This time the car (1980 SC w/CIS) had been sitting for a little over 4 weeks without being started. It cranked over for about 5 or 6 seconds and fired right up and after a minute or so settled into a 950 rpm idle! So why haven't I driven the car in that time? Shoulder surgery. At the moment I am not allowed to do anything fun like shift gears with my right arm. Anyway, I am so pleased with my Pcar right now that the shoulder almost doesn't hurt! I used to have a 1988 924S that would kill the battery in 3 days if wasn't run a few miles so this is definitely a step in the right direction!

An air cooled is always a better step than a water pumper. The water pumpers were made to be service vehicles for the dealer....

Sorry about your siteeation but I get what you mean about the 911 firing right up.

I couldn't drive mine when I broke my foot a couple of years ago. The cast would fit within the pedal box area.


Mine is still at the body shop, hopefully to be back this week.

I drove and raced my Camaro with a broken arm but I only had to bump the autoshifter slightly for each gear.

easy fix for you,
talk your wife into letting you buy a RHD car to drive and promise that you will sell it once your shoulder heals completely ...........
