    [2014] What did you do to/with your Z today?

    Thread Starter: Arne

    Rather than let these threads go on forever as they do in some other forums, I thought I'd start new ones for separate generations for the New Year. Use these threads for short, Twitter-like posts, things that may not be worth their own thread. Since only the S30 threads got any use over the...

    Off to ontario!

    Thread Starter: northernz

    Hey all, I am starting a thread to document the restoration of my blue on blue '71. I have driven the car for 4 years now, and have finally accepted that I lack the time and heated space and, let's face it, the skill and determination to do the work myself! I have always admired the work done by...

I did check the current flow with the LEDs, and it is now 2.6A. I didn't measure the current before the...

    Thread Starter: The osteopath

    Hey everyone! Just joined the forum last week, and so far it looks like an invaluable resource. You guys have so much info here. In any case, after a several year search, I finally found the car I was looking for- a relatively low mileage 1970 240Z, with not too many rust issues. My dad had a...
