Hey, that subject line really hit me head on,
so I hereby break the rule not to engage in an off-topic subject.
You see, I subscribe to those two lists: classiccmp_at_u.washington.edu and
and filter my E-Mail by the headers...... and then suddenly......
the exact displacement of my car engine shows up on the classiccmp list!!
The car in question is a 1981, 785cc, Suzuki LJ-80, it's a kind of a
micro-jeep really
and it has no electronics whatsoever.
Sorry, clearly off-topic but I just could not resist.
