  2. I hate Chinese "Metal"

    Thought I'd also chime in about Chinese "Metal". We got a flat on the left front late last year on our 09 Altima coupe. After removing the donut spare I had to raise the car a bit higher to install the fixed tire. As I was cranking the jack, my wife rolled the tire over. She helps out because I have a muscular disease, CMT. Anyhow, the car was high enough to almost get the tire on when the jack collapsed. The rotor banged down on the inside of the rim. I had to use my hydraulic jack to finish. On the side of the Nissan jack "made in China" was stamped, junk. The nut, where the threaded spindle goes into was stripped. I had only used the jack 3 or 4 times before. I did replace the front shocks before the cold weather, used the hydraulic jack, and jack stands.
  3. Merry Christmas

    To Everyone and their Families hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy safe New Year !
  4. The 240 Z arrives in USA

    I was thinking the same thing, no hatch vents below the window.
  5. Let's show vintage racing pictures. I'll start.

    Met Jim & his Wife, nice couple, when working as a Pit Marshal at a 12hr race at Nelson Ledges quite a few years ago. They lived not too far from me in N. Royalton, Oh. I remember going to Breyley Datsun after I was discharged in early 72 to purchase my 240Z, no luck with that idea. They wanted the $1000 down and wait 6-9 month deal. I ended up buying one from Stang Motors, Elyria, Oh, only $100 down and waited a week.
  6. JNC Happy Thanksgiving from JNC

    And don't forget to set your scale back 5 pounds. Happy Thanksgiving !!!
  7. A Friends new ride!

    I bet there'd be a lot of us interested in the cars and tanks he has. Maybe he'd let you take some pics and post them for us to drool over. That's my all time favorite dream car, Gulf Ford GT40, that I can't afford. I'll have to settle for my Z and Fairlady.
  8. Glad you got on this Website Jeff, these guys are great, they can help & give you the best info on any problem you have.
  9. Rust free front fenders

    Price I paid back in late 1999, early 2000, from my local dealer.
  10. Did you replace all your rubber fuel line hoses?
  11. Do resellers accept Zed body Panels?

    Let's see ..... I'm in the area, there's others in the Cleveland Z Club with classic Z's. I believe Chris Karl is restoring a 280Z. Exactly what parts do you have? Take pics and post them, don't scrap them.
  12. Looking for front fenders

    dutchzcarguy, I've heard from guys that parts were NLA on West Coast, my dealer got them from somewhere East Coast. Sometimes parts turn up available in Canada too, never hurts to dig in and search.
  13. The First Z...and Last...

    Great story, i remember those days of the dealerships wanting $1000 down and a waiting list due to one Z for every 29 cars sold. After being discharged in early 72 and given the run around by 3 local dealerships, I went to Stang Motors, Elyria, Ohio, Mr. Terry Tracey took $100 down payment, said '' I'll see what I can do''. A week later he calls and says, " I've got 3 take your pick". I chose white 4sp w/burgundy interior. I asked, "How'd you get 3". Stang Motors sold Datsuns, MGs, Triumphs and AMC, so they sold more cars.
  14. Looking for front fenders

    Years ago I was restoring my 72 Z, got quotes of $275 to $375 each for fenders. I called my local Nissan Dealership, he checked, quoted me a price of $175 each. They were ordered and came in 3 days, wrapped and in Nissan boxes. Contact Courtesy Nissan that would be a good choice for new or reproduction fenders. Someone on this site that lives in the states might be able to help you. Goggle Datsun 240 260 280Z front fenders.
