      Just thought I'd see whose car is functional at the moment down here in SoCal land.
      Saw a yellow G60 on the road today and thought of Dogger, and just had to wonder whose cars are roadworthy these days?

      Mine's currently not - front end is taken apart to replace AC compressor.

      I know what you are talking about. I bumped into a friend on the road the other day and couldn't remember the last time I saw one on the road and wasn't going to or from a show.

      Drove my to work today to get wash and buff for Oktoberfest this weeking

      But lately I been seeing quite a few on the road. spotted two corrados while leaving work, black g60 that sound really healthy and a red one in need of a paint job. A black one broken down on El Camino Real with the guys wife cursing the damn car and this very clean g60 in front of my wife's job in mira mesa.

      Just did the clutch on mine so its ready for long beatings because its my daily. We need a cruise one of these days. The weather is cooler so we shouldn't worry so much about overheating. lol

      Mine runs but is missing a cluster and a list of other parts that were sold. Going to work on it this month and list it for sale again soon.

      mine runs, but mainly sits. I drove it this week after it sat for 3 months. It has an issue where it won't start after being hot, cant figure it out. Ignition switch has been changed. Thinking its the starter.

      Mine has been sitting for months now. I've been very busy with work but saving some money for the parts it needs. I think this Thanksgiving I'll be able to work on it since I will get the week off

      Check the ground cable from the trans to chassis. Could be the starter still but just make sure that ground cable has good continuity.

      +1 in New York. former SCCG car that still bears the decal running up the windscreen on the passenger side. I put the razor to it in 2005-ish when I bought it, but it felt like removing a prison tattoo or something so I left it.
