I'm in the northeast section of San Jose near Milpitas @ Hostetter and Morrill. I'll warn you now that the engine smokes on deceleration in gear (worn exhaust valve guides, I think). The Weber 32/36 is leaking, but I still get about 21-23 mpg in mixed driving. It's still a blast to drive and a whole lot better than when I got the car. (The previous owner pulled the head to have a cracked water jacket fixed, but he put it back on wrong, so timing was retarded. This his since been corrected, but the crappy, aftermarket head gasket he used is still there). I change the oil regularly every 3000-3500 miles, and it consumes about 3 quarts between changes. That reminds me, I've got to do one this afternoon. Regards.
