        The car now looks a little bit different than in the first auction

          Ah, much better now. I sent them a note asking about the photo in the original ad, looks like they listened.

            Interesting to see the attempts at converting the engine to positive crankcase ventilation. I wonder if it was done in an attempt to pass California's strict emissions requirements. I think there is some exemptions for cars of a certain vintage, but really don't know. The way the line is connected from the oil filler cap, does not appear a pcv valve is involved. Also, notice the valve cover modified to replace the road draft tube. I wonder if it is effective, or could it have caused some problem that caused the car to sit since 1990?

            This pic is so different from the first one posted, it still makes me wonder about the listing. It does seem legit now. The rust pics make me think it did not spend all its time in California, unless parked next to the surf.
