Junkyard & "Out to Pasture" Zs

Recommended Posts

car-part.com is a super resource. I can't even tell you how many things I've gotten off that site. Database of all US junkyards "good" inventory.

Thanks for the tip on getting the picture on the posts I feel like a idiot it was pretty easy but just couldn't find it. I went to EZpull & save in New Ringold, Pa today and no 280z they did have a few 300Zx's and one 280ZX but nothing earlier. Wow it's amazing how these pictures of these cars in the yards makes us Z lovers cringe. Anybody know of a 280 in or near eastern Pa please let me know. Thanks

Depending on what you need (you might want to post that...)

65 miles to Elkton, MD...Paradise Auto Parts...280Z

128 miles to Pine City, NY...Rubin Auto Parts, Inc....280ZX (some interchangeable parts)

Try them.

Yes Chris, it is a members car. I think he lives in Thailand. Or somewhere in the general south asian vicinity. He fixed it up very nicely if I remember correctly.

From the looks of the cars in the background (Volvo, BMW, etc), I would have thought the pictures were taken in Europe somewhere and not in Asia. In fact, I got these pics from this French Z-car website: http://240z.free.fr/index.php?/category/20 (It looks like they have pulled a few pics from this thread as well!)

Well it was a beautifully warm day here in St. Louis (low 60's) and i had a chance to go to The Z Junkyard! The yard is in Imperial Missouri and is called "Z Works" it is amazing how many Z there are there, The owner has well over 50, 240z/260z/280z/280zx/300zx's on his lot, not to mention two barns full of early z parts (I got a '74-'78 Calandar clock today!) anyhoo here are some pictures, the lot is a little overgrown... over the summer its tick central!

Found an old album with these in them.......

My very first 240Z that was creamed after after only three weeks. If I knew then what I know now I would have "liberated" some of the interior and front end....or at least bought it back. But when your a teenager that $4,000 insurance check looks to nice.

Yeah, looks like there were a ton of good parts left on the car, Mally. The rear glass with vertical defroster also looks like it was still in good shape.

I was flying with my uncle in a Storch out over the desert between Tucson & Phoenix about a year & a half ago. Those planes can maintain altitude while flying extremely slow & low to the ground.

Out in the middle of the desert was a '68 (I think) white Mustang just sitting alone, on state owned land, w/o a road in sight. It was a very similar scene to the black & white B210 pictured above. We flew around it a little but couldn't land to get a look at it. You wouldn't believe how many cars are out there, doing nothing but sitting.

My claim to fame is.... After 3 years of restoration I finally got the 72 240 out on the road

sans windshield... 40 mph and 30 mile an hour head wind made it a bit breezy...

My trailer options fell through and I wanted to get the Z to the body shop for undercoating. With any luck the Z will be really on the road this summer.

Not just a Z - zdisease
