My Z Cars

  • About My Cars
    '71 240Z: Purchased in AZ in 2007. Rebuilt original matching engine. 904 White with rare Blue interior. Professional bare metal paint restoration, refreshed interior, re-chromed bumpers, etc. This car was my third refresh project since 2004. Previously, my son and I refreshed a '71 918 Orange/blk int as well as a '72 904 White/blk int and both of these cars also had original matching engine numbers. Presently, my latest '71 is the only Z I have at the present time. I had a '72 while I was in college in the late '70s & early '80s and my wife had a '79 280ZX when I first met her through the ea
  1. 1973 "Series I Clone" in Albuquerque

  2. 240Z from France import US

    Yes, that's the car and that's Arnaud in the pictures. He changed out the stock wheels and D hubcaps soon after he shipped the car over to France. Below is a picture of the car before it was sold. Arnaud's winning bid on eBay was for just under $15,000.00 U.S. back in 2007.
  3. heres an odd one

    You don't see too many with the dealer-optioned vinyl roof.....not the most-desirable option.
  4. 240Z from France import US

    Hi Sean, Over 10 years ago a gentleman whose first name was Arnaud purchased a '71 918 Orange 240Z from me and my son (pictured below). He was living in New York City at the time, then he moved back to France and took his 240Z with him. He e-mailed me some pictures of the car at the collector car parade which took place on the track at LeMans about a year later. Just curious, have you heard from him? Does he still have the 240Z? Steve
  5. '72 Fairlady Z Project For Sale in San Jose, CA

    The dark blue sticker in the windshield is interesting - "US Forces -Japan 1984"- providing some background history of the car. Appears that an American in the US Military purchased the car in Japan and then brought it home to California many years ago. Not sure what the light blue sticker with the 7 and the small Japanese writing system characters below the 7 are all about. Perhaps an auto inspection sticker?
  6. Found this project on SF Bay Area Craigslist. The VIN is # S30-09031. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto/d/1972-nissan-fairlady-datsun/6362281693.html

  8. 70240z For sale, 45 years in family, is on Montana craiglist

    Looking in the engine bay, the original paint color appears to be 918 Orange.
  9. #64 just popped up on ebay

    Looks like #64 sold back on September 11th for $60K - same seller. Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Datsun-Z-Series-/162659926147?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=hwYtBWkiUVB%2BVaZ%2FPs63eos93J8%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
  10. Good price for what looks to be a pretty solid Series II (HLS30-43310) project car for only a $2,800.00 asking price with a low-rust body for the most part except for the battery tray area. Looks like the original paint color is 905 Monte Carlo Red which is a great color that you don't see very often. Here's the link: https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/d/datsun/6221670467.html
  11. Front Bumper strips too short. 72 Z

    You have the correct part number for the '70 thru '72 240Z front bumper. The picture looks like you have the rubber piece on backwards - the rounded edge needs to be on the outside end that curves around to the front edge of the fender. Try starting from the first hole on the side corner of each side of the bumper (see picture below).
  12. Careful what you say....she's armed and dangerous!
