Car looks/sounds nice- where exactly is it? Say how far to Buffalo, etc? And what mods, precisely? Still have the triple carbs?

Is it a Canada, or US spec car?

Thanks for any more info- i am abou 1.5 hours SW of Buffalo- maybe i can take the new fast ferry!ROFL

You have a nice clean looking car I said probably not because i have owned a 2+2 and just prefer the 2 seater as a car in general however good luck with the sale and i hope it gets looked after by it's next owner.

I',m 20mins West of Toronto.

Its about 1 1/2 hours to downtown Buffalo (depending on the mood of the boarder patroll)

There are directions on my web site at:

I've got many spares, and yes! the Webbers are still strapped in! Wouldnt have it any other way... GGRRrrr...

Mods :

upgraded swaybars,

13" steering wheel

rebuilt tranny

DCOE 40's (properly tuned!)

Urathane steering coupler, and bushings

Falken Azenis (awesome tires lots of life.)

Toyota 4 piston calipers (best upgrade ever!)

Re-enforced Moustache bar.

New water pump

( A FEW MORE i JUST CANT REMEMBER RIGHT NOW...)

(seats and floors need work and a little paint touchup.)

The only reason I dont keep it is I'm doing a 240 from scratch strictly for racing and I just dont have the room...

check out my gallery for a cool Z 2+2. I've owned mine for several years and it will never be forsale. I also own a 77 2+2 and a 76 2+2 parts car. and if the 74 is still available...I may buy that one as well. Is there any interior shots of this car?

Like sthe sunroof on the 2+2. Aftermarket I assume?

Considering putting one in the 240 i'm rebuiliing. Any reason not to?

Any particular aftermarket model better than the other?

It ist a straightforward job?

Does it effect the flex or torsion of the car?

Anyway, Interior good. Seats need recovering in front. Backs are truly mint. Carpets are tired but functional. Dash is cracked (oh surprise there!).. um.... side panels are pretty good. Armrests have been replaced.

No-one has yet spoken for it.......

personally I wish that the original owner of my car left the roof alone...all sunroofs leak and if you plan never to wreck your car and total it...you can be sure the sunroof company went out of business and there are no gasket materials available for your sunroof. If anyone else reads this...the sunroof is called a twin top sunroof and I'd like to find either a new old stock of one or a near new one to help my leaking roof. I have a good temporary fix for right now but I'm sure I will still have problems. What is the US conversion currently from US to Canadaian $$$?

My current 260 has a sunroof- it is very well installed, doesn't leak, etc. It's nice.

BUT- i'd rather it were not there!

For starters, i have to keep the seat reclined more than i care for, or my head hits the frame of the sunroof (that REALLY sucks) Can't imagine driving with a helmet on:mad:

Also, the integrity of the car is compromised, to some degree. With no frame on a Z, if you plan on race or autoX events, i wouldn't even think of installing a sunroof.

I 'spose if you really want one, and you did structural support such as a cage, or tube frame, it'd be okay- but i'd pass on it myself.
