What does your Z want for the holidays?

a bath and a hand wax job! Keep down the snickers Rick and Bill!

A new short shifter-what is it with you guys!

A fresh set of rubber-ok, that's just enough!

Will,

My red Z would love another bay in the garage where it could share time with the silver Z being converted to v-8 and my semi-retired Formula V (plus cartons and cartons of parts and tools). Let alone the black ZX which huddles under its cover while I work on its cancer (metallic sort).

I need a radio desperately. My s130 has the original tape player radio, both speakers in the dash are blown along with 1 rear speaker, so that leaves me with 1 crappy 6x9. Well, at least the antenna comes up when i turn it on, LOL

Both a garage and a nice friendly companion for said garage would be great, but my lovely will have to settle with a new set of brake pads, maybe a new differential mount, and a good vacuuming!

For me to stop being mad it....I have not driven it since mid September when it was broken into and the stereo riped out thus causing damage to my backlite heater bezel. I know the break in was not the car's fault but the creeps ruined the driver's door lock area. I guess I should get her fixed up and drive her again as a Christmas gift to the car.

Thank goodness my Z doesn't have access to my credit card, otherwise I would be in the poor house! She'd love to have me completely disassembly her again and add a roll cage, a complete freshening of the chassis (not that it's necessary!), lay on a new coat of paint (would go back to the original white), add some nice CF parts for visual effect, remove the basically stock N42 motor and replace it with one of Dave Rebello's units, and maybe even upgrade the brakes again to some nice AP units! Oh, I'm sure she could come up with other items but, I control the cash flow so they will just remain on the big wish list!

Maybe a car cover...maybe a decision resto vs. performance...maybe a new suspension...probably all of the above...

My zed would just like me to spend some time working on it. In fact, a lot of overdue time.

Holiday gift? Well I already got the parts and I won't be doing these repairs till next spring/summer being that she is in storage for winter but here is whats on my "To Do" list.

-New Nissan brake pads with hardware kit

-New Nissan Rotors

-Inspect and repack front wheel bearings (New Nissan grease seals for hubs obviously :) )

-Installing New Nissan Water Pump (For piece of mind. Still has orig. 30 yr. old W.P. :nervous: )

- New Nissan Fan Clutch (again, Orig. 30yrs old so I just want to :) Cheap insurance IMO. )

- I have to look into a fuel pressure loss issue. I noticed towards the end of this past summer, she starts tough after sitting. I'm leaning towards the check valve, but will test to make certain.

Anyway thats about it. Then of course the usual basic routine spring maintainance stuff.

Just goes to show that even with a beautiful classic Z, your never done. Always plenty to do with just normal wear and tear stuff on a 30+ yr. old car. The holidays come during the spring/summer for my Z :D I won't get into the laundry list of stuff that I have already done to it. It's my hobby though and I enjoy every minute of it :)

Would love to land a set of triples 45 or 50mm that actually came off a running car and don't need a complete rebuild.

I even have a 1977 280 to trade for them.

My Z is at the doctors right now...in critical condition. Scheduled for a complete total reconstruction plastic surgery...all I want for Xmas is my Z to pull through. I was in tears when I saw her hooked up to the 110 red intavenous transfusion. The doctor said he might have to have a case of Bondo flown in just to save her.

Say a prayer this holiday for hls30-79101.

My Z would love someone that had the knowledge to work on her and fix her up. How bout it Santa, can you have someone show up and help me out?

I will supply my guest room, drinks, great food, a hot tub to soak in afterwards, I will even have my cute wife join them in the hot tub! :)

I'm desperate for knowledge and time to get this thing on the road!

She would like a wiring harness bad so she can flash people. Not to mention a lighter front end :) she's feeling alittle fat.
