  1. New 240z? True or BS

    I'll believe it when it's sitting in my driveway between my 280z's.
  2. New 240z? True or BS

    I recieved an email yesterday from Datsun Classifieds that said Happy New Year, and said to watch for news of a new 240z coming in 2014. Is there any truth to this, or is this just a bs rumor about a successor to the 240sx to get more action to the site? I'm a member of Nico also , and we've been talking about the need for a new affordable rwd sport coupe, and Andy Palmer has been ringing in and told us that something is in the works, but the administrator told me that their lineup up to 2016 is already filled. As a potential buyer of one, and speaking for all potential buyers, I think we deserve to know the truth, and people need to stop posting rumors.

    I just put a coat of primer and light blue spray paint to keep it from rusting. If I get a few warm days, I'll put a coat of icing on it and maybe a couple coats of paint.

    I cut the hole in the door and made a square hole. Then I used the inside of my parts door to make patches for the door and fender, and welded both patches in. This picture is just with a coat of primer, I still need to put a coat of icing on it, but it's better than having holes. I still have a few other holes to patch, but it's coming along.

    You can see a hole in the door, and at the rear of the fender.
  6. New rocker panels

    Thanks. It has a few holes that need patched, but it's not bad for a PA Datsun.
  7. Rear Bumper Question

    Thanks, I have the whole bumper assembly including the side finishers off of the '82, so I would be using the whole thing off of the '82. The side pieces go all the way to the fenderwells, so I'm thinking it should work, but I'm not sure.

  9. New rocker panels

    Finally getting my new rocker panels welded in. I'd like to get all bodywork done and primed before fall. Sucks with just a carport.
  10. Rear Bumper Question

    I have a '79 280zx, and it has the center "280zx" taillight panel on it, which I want to keep, and had the chrome bumpers which were in bad shape. I bought 2 parts cars , an '80 and an '82. One had a xenon airdam which I'm using,(you can see I have the front end on in my avatar) and I want to use the bumpers off of the '82. My questions are, will it look right with the license plate mounted on the plastic bumper? Are there any companies that make an aftermarket bumper that has a license plate mount? Thanks
  11. Do Speed Bleeders work?

    I had them on my 240sx's, and they worked great for a long time, then the one started sticking open for me. When I do a brake job now, when I'm done I just put a drop of oil in them, and it seems to keep them working good.
  12. I drew a version of a new z that I would like to see Datsun/ Nissan make something close to. I have it posted here in Photo/art forum. It is kind of a cross between an S15 chassis, and an origional z, hatchback and lengthened to fit an rb- 28dett straight 6 under the hood, and rwd, with the classic looks of the round scooped out headlights. I would call it a 280zs.
  13. New Z My version "280zs"

    This is what I think the next Z should resemble. I would call it the 280zs. It would be based on the S15 chassis, and would have a revised version of the rb26dett that would be 2.8L and rwd. They could offer turbo and non turbo versions so more people could afford one, and bring it back to the classic affordable Z it was in the 70's & 80's. This would be the perfect car to bring back the Datsun name, imho. I wish Nissan would see this and their lightbulb would come on.
  14. Thank You Very Much for making this great thread. I have the Weber book, and it confuses me because it covers different variations of the carb, that I don't need to know about. You have made it 150% easier for me to see what each part does and how the whole system functions, and I greatly appreciate it.
