My Z Cars

  • About My Cars
    Mid 1971 240Z
  1. First drive in the z in 25 years.....impressions.

    This fume thing really seems a problem with the early z's, not sure if there are complains from 280Z owners ? I've replaced everything in mine and sometimes I still smell it.. with the windows closed no smell, but when windows down in the summer there's a light smell ( not Always ). It could come from anywhere I gave up searching, just accept the smell it's not that bad.
  2. Series I cars

    I came across that problem last time when one of my cylinders was stuck from sitting in the winter and was leaking fluid. I managed to get only a new cup seal ( few dollars ) and rebuild the unit, or else it would cost me that 200 + USD.. Thank god on these old cars everything is almost repairable, instead of the new cars where you just throw it away and buy a new one....$$$
  3. My Datsun 240Z

    Time for a little update.... First I got another cockatoo, the old one ( yuki ) got a little agressive and attacked me this one is really friendly his name is Buddy, he's a Galah... Second the Datsun.. it's currently in winter storage since last 2 weeks. I will start it occasionally, didn't have much time to drive it this summer...not much nice days ! I hope to drive it more next summer, and bring it to some classic car events... Lot's of polishing/cleaning work needs to be done on the car in spring ! Third: The Mustang I am still waiting for the engine to come back from the engine shop, had some problems with parts I had to send back to the US. I hope to get the engine and tranny in around Christmas.. or Januari. I allready re-painted the engine bay, and put an entire new steering assembly ( rebuild unit from the US ).
  4. Series I cars

    Changes occured throughout the production of the 240Z so you really can't call it series 1,2, or 3 etc... Mine is from a " transition period " it has many series 1 features, but also what guys call here a series 2 Z emblem on the side pillar instead of the 240z badge.
  5. My Datsun 280Z "Rustoration"

    Like Mart says.. never the floors and if it's rusty wit the normal jack ( see picture ) it will FAIL
  6. Deja Vu: 1971 Restoration

    Very nice work, lots of details... It's Always a pity it's going to fade away anyhow, when used outside on the road, or else you have to put it in a museum or only drive on dry sunny days But you can keep it nice for a long while, old fashioned elbow grease.

  9. Shell V Power Nitro+

    There's quite some videos on youtube on doing that, but untill there's a proper way, i'll stick with the expensive non ethanol gasoline..
  10. Shell V Power Nitro+

    It's called V Power here if I am correct. Fancy names. It's just regular gasoline ( octane a bit higher ) without ethanol in it. Ethanol reduces mpg and burns less clean than regular gasoline. I use it in the 240Z to, but that's just because the regular 95 contains about 5% ethanol, ( this will be upped to 10% in a few years time ) I just need regular gasoline without ethanol, so I don't **** up the carbs and everything.... The hobby is getting more expensive by the day ...
  11. Road tripping across Europe in a 280Z

    I love the mountain area of Austria and Bayern ( Southern Germany )... went there last year with the Mustang. Beautiful scenery to drive... I'm planning my next road trip through Switzerland and into Monaco, but it don't think it will be this year.
  12. Bought # 4858
