  1. HLS30 04575

    NO, that is a integral part of being able to afford to properly restore the car. I can tell you that it would have been more lucrative if I have parted out the car, but I believe that we have to save these cars!
  2. HLS30 04575

    4574 has been sold and picked up by a member of the site. He has full intention of restoration. I took a loss on the car in order to help the member justify the restoration. I hope we get to see the progress as it is restored, but that will be up to the member.
  3. Looking for a JDM Grill

    I am looking for a JDM Grill for period correct upgrade to my 72 Z.
  4. HLS30 00029

    Les Canaday gave me a call yesterday. He let me know that he is selling my old HLS30 -00029 race car. A year or two ago I would have purchased it back, but I have taken a different direction in the past few months. If anyone is interested they should contact Les.
  5. HLS30 04575

    A short note on this project. I have decided that this project is not one I want to take on at this time for a number of reasons. I will update the post on the car as it sits in the near future. I hate to see these low number Z’s parted out so I will first offer it to members who have the intention of restoration. I am willing to take a loss on the project if a member is serious about restoring this car. Contact me if interested. Thanks Jerry

  7. Harada Antenna Repair Thread?

  8. A Friends new ride!

    No offense taken Chris, I do not know about the GT40's or the clones etc... I have not talked to Dave yet, but I assumed, and you know the thing about assuming, that when he said that he found a chassis in South Africa that he was talking about an original chassis. He continued to say that he had it directly shipped to N. Carolina for a full Olthoff Racing build, we have a 600 HP beast at just 2,000 lbs. Chris, no intention to mislead just knowing this guy I made an assumption. Thanks for clearing that up for me. JLP
  9. A Friends new ride!

    Dave's Viper......... I will have to take a look at photos of his military tanks and post them when I get time.
  10. A Friends new ride!

    Chris, I will have to give him a call and check. But according to his post he found the chassis in South Africa and had the car rebuilt to original specs. Maybe he is pulling my leg? He has a bottomless pit for resources. He has a number of collector cars and a larger number of restored military tanks, (his true passion), from all different countries and time periods. All are restored and in working order. I will have to give him a call, good opportunity to visit his man caves.
  11. A Friends new ride!

    I have a friend that collects "Tanks" and cars. His latest project was to find an original right hand drive Ford GT40 and have it cloned to original race specifications. Here is the result.... I would be lying if I were to say that I am not a bit jealous. Dave has great taste in cars!
  12. Sumitomo MK63 pads?

    Looking for calipers or brake pads for the MK63's? I have an extra set that I believe that I will hold on to, but they are out there. There are two different configurations, I believe that there is a difference in the pads for the MK63 calipers for the vented rotors as apposed to the pads for the non-vented MK63 calipers. Kats would be my go to guy for information on these calipers and pads. I know there are companies out there that will replace the brake material on your backing plates as an alternative. http://www.remaninc.com/aboutbrakepads https://jdm-car-parts.com/collections/skyline-1969-72/products/reproduction-mk63-front-brake-pad-set-for-skyline-hakosuka https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/parts/item/aa71-f8f010-2/ https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/j448607503 https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/j448607499
  13. harvest time

    I have been thinking about setting up a couple of hives. I really like fresh honey and from what I have heard local honey can help with pollen based allergies. Looks good!
