Hey y'all,

Glad I found this place. I just bought a 1976 280z. It's going to new a little TLC but I think I'll keep her. She runs good... started right up after a new battery and cable. I'll post pictures soon.

Not to bad. Do you have plans to restore it or just drive it? Either way you will have fun with it.

Well, for a little while I will have to drive it. But, I do plan to restore it with maybe a few upgrades. The body and paint will have to be first. They are the most lacking.

Good Luck with it.Its a never ending quest there is always something else to do to it so have fun in the process. This site is a dream come true for those of us that dont have the knowledge. I joined the site in 2005 knowing only general things about Z cars and now my knowledge has increased 10 fold if not more. I love Z cars of all kinds and owning one is all the sweeter.:classic:

Excellent! My pictures have been approved in the gallery. Here's the link:

And no, the car isn't white...that's an awesome primer grey with some rust popping out!

Welcome to the site and congrats on the Z . Be aware that primer is porous and will allow moisture to penetrate to the metal . So if the primer is over paint that will be a moisture barrier , however if the paint was sanded off or removed , you want to address this as soon as you can. The same for Bondo . All the best to you and enjoy your new ride. Gary:rambo:

Thanks Gary,

I'll be sanding and painting as soon as I can. The car does have rust...(under the battery, in the hatch, over the rear lights) but I'm not sure how much yet. I've peeled back the carpet inside and that doesn't look too bad. I'm looking for a good body shop in the area here to address the major rust first. I teach for a living so the shop will also have to be somewhat affordable. I know there is a local club here, just gotta find em and see what they recommend.

Welcome to the site Jacob and congrats on your purchase. Note that you're actually going to need to pull up the tar mats under the carpet to accurately assess the condition of the floors.
