Greetings and welcome to the Classic Zcar Club BLOG area. We have set aside this area for members who wish to host their own private Z-blog. The idea is this area will be to write articles, show build-updates, and other items related to your own projects. Think of a blog as a "journal" of your adventure. While the blog can be used to create discussions, we encourage everyone to post 2-way conversations in our Forums.
Enjoy your own personal blog and please feel free to jump up onto your o
Just wanted to share some photos of my Z over the years...
This photo is just after I bought and rebuilt the engine. I drove it around through college. At the time, I purchased the car from a family friend who was storing the car in his garage. Purchased for $500 with a frozen engine block, bad head gasket, and seized brakes.
After a few years, and the first split with my ex, I decided to 'man-up' and start taking the car apart. I spent the next several years sand blasting, wi
Hi all, if you're a regular visitor you'll probably notice a new slider at the bottom of every page. The slider is a content feed that will show you relative and matched content from our forums. The idea behind this feature is to attract your attention to a few interesting posts that you may not find by opening every forum.

As far as affordable, lightweight, and fun to drive sports cars.... did the venture between Toyota and Subaru beat Nissan to the punch with their FR-S? This car looks so much like an old Z, I'm beginning to wonder if the rumors around a new 240z are going to show up with a car that looks a lot like the Scion FR-S.
C'mon Nissan, you've got to do something good for this market!
Found a great article about purchasing online. This article has a focus on Craigslist, but, the information can be used as a great reference for purchasing on any website -- especially cars and parts.
How to safely purchase Craigslist used cars online
â€“ 6 safety tips to remember when searching Craigslist for cars
One of the biggest worries that many people have when it comes to purchasing a Craigslist used car is becoming a victim of a scam. Every day, news headlines draw attention
Ran across this awhile back and posted it to my blog. I know it's probably old news to some of you but I wanted to share some pretty awesome work done on this classic modified Z. It's an Ebay find article from our friends over at AutoBlog.
This appears to be one of the most expensive 240z restorations I've seen. You could really consider this a resto-mod, but, who's looking? Very sexy.
This is an entry from my old journal before turning off that module.
Created this as a backup to my for sale ad, removed when I finished the project.
The bad thing about having a "new" restoration like this is the old parts. It's soo hard to put an old part next to a new part. While I have all of the old stuff around, there are things that you'll want to replace with new or rebuilt. The two engines should be rebuilt. While I took out the operational L24 and set it aside, it was nearly 1
Here are a few of the links to threads I've posted about my '71 240z restoration:

I'm looking for advice. I have a 78 280z and i would like to put 16x8 inch wheels. Is this possible and should the offset remain at 0? I've been trying to get a set of Rewind or banana mags and can't seem to find the right set. Thanks for any help you can give me. Mark

It looks great!!!
Thanks for the pics, Mike. This site helped me in so many ways. I met people from all over the world and visited a few in New Zealand. The Zed is a unique car. There is actually none like it for the affordable enjoyment. I had one back in '74. Traded it for a 3/4 ton 4X4 Chevy p/u when I moved to the mountains. But I never forgot the excitement and love I had for that first car. In 2005 I bought another one and made it mine with new parts, paint, upholstery, etc. My wife calls it the "acceptable
