    April Fool's was several weeks ago.

    I'm amazed that you had a clothes pin lying around....haven't seen one of them for many years.

    Early Datsun 240Zs had a problem with fuel vaporization- mainly due to the incredibly stupid routing of the metal fuel delivery pipe right over the exhaust manifold.
    Datsun&#39;s original "factory" fix was to clamp several wooden clothespins to the metal pipe in an attempt to dissipate the heat.
    I always thought it was hilarious to open the hood of an immaculate Z car and see a row of clothespins alongside the valve cover.

    Stupid fix for a stupid problem.
