  1. Price I paid back in late 1999, early 2000, from my local dealer.
  2. Did you replace all your rubber fuel line hoses?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Our job Superintendent, when I worked for Dayton Showcase had a 72 Z with a Ford hipro 289. He lived in Columbus, Oh. although that was 20+ yrs ago
  8. I was discharged from the Air Force in Feb. 72. I tried 3 dealership in the Cleveland area. Breyley, N. and if it wasn' Royalton. Bedford Datsun, & Mentor Datsun. Each dealership wanted $1000 down & 6 - 9 months wait and if it wasn't what you wanted, (stick, auto, color or air) you'd have to wait for the next one, In June, borrowed a car and went to a dealership in Elyria, Oh. Stang Motors and spoke with Terry Tracey. Showed him pics of the Fairlady ZG I took while on leave in Japan, late 71, plus all the literature. He took a $100 down payment and said, " I'll see what i can do." One week later hecalled and said, "got 3 in, take your pic." I chose a white stick, other two were brown, red, auto and air. When i asked "how did you get three when each dealership was allowed one Z for 29 cars sold. He said, "we sell Datsun, Triumph, MG, and AMC, we sell more cars. 2nd Z another 72 was bought in 87, original paint, stick, with air. was stripped & repainted in late 99, finished in 2000. Found the 10/69 Fairlady Z-L early 2000, soon to be repainted.
