    The ULTIMATE Aviation Thread

    Funny you mentioned People’s Express. In 1986 they started flying from EWR to ORF & CAE. Piedmont considered Norfolk, VA and Columbia, SC to be their turf and they were known to be ruthless competitors. People‘s Express started running no frills flights for $49.00. Piedmont matched their prices...

    The ULTIMATE Aviation Thread

    I assume everyone has some level of affection for the first major airline that hired them if you were lucky enough to get hired in the first place. Piedmont was one of those “once in a lifetime experiences” that is hard to explain to folks that didn’t work there. The original Piedmont pilots are...

    A full range of emotions. The top photo made me proud while the bottom one made me sad. Oh well....

    When to think about injector replacement?

    Just make sure it’s a shop that actually has experience with Toyota injectors and injection pumps.

    My wife found this old photograph mixed in with some family photos. Top photo is the traditional Piedmont pain scheme whereas the bottom photo is the transitional paint scheme between Piedmont’s red, white and blue and the polished aluminum of USAir.

    8-Track

    Sadly enough I can remember when an 8 Track was “state of the art”. I had a friend in high school whose parents bought him a new Camaro with an 8 Track. His “coolness” went off-scale.

    For Sale Vancouver, BC - 1991 HZJ75 Ute

    It’s amazing that this Ute hasn’t already sold. It’s about as close to a “turn key” Ute as you’re going to find.

    7x series cost of ownership in USA

    This subject was broached in post #21. There seems to always be two options when it comes to buying a 25 year old 70 Series. Option 1 is to go ahead and spend the money up front and buy basically a “turn key” Cruiser which in my opinion will require a higher budget than you’ve stated. Option 2...

    Builds Aussie HZJ78 in Canada: "Ozzi" (simple build)

    Granted the “extra” door isn’t OEM but based on that one photo it appears its addition was well thought out and executed. I personally would see it as a plus.
