New with 71 240z

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, ;)

I'm from Lithuania and have just bought 240z from California, RANCHO CUCAMONGA. It's really awesome car. And i'd like to know if there is the past owner of this car?

Hello Greddy,

Nice car.

Where did you find the spare parts ?

Is this this the only Z in Lithuania ?

Good luck for the future

Hi Greddy - The car looks beautiful. I hope you do hear from the former owner, so we can hear the story behind the damage. It looks like a tree came down on it. I love the color you chose.

Thank you, the only one spare part is taillight from ebay in USA. Another parts like hood are the same, a lot of work. ;) Are there any meets in germany? I'm planning to come.

I think there is one 240Z in Lithuania. It's now selling. ZU VERKAUFEN. :D

The color is the same like subaru impreza. I hope the owner will turn up. Sorry for my ban english.

Are you putting the bumper back on? Looks like its in perfect condition.

It is in perfect condition, but I won't put in on. I think it looks better without it. It's like more sport's car. :)

Wow! That is some incredible bodywork you've done there! Here in the US, it would have been swap out the fender, door and hood with replacements as those look to far gone for the skill level (and cost factor) of bodyshops here. Looks like your front turn signal is cracked on the inside edge -- have to get you a new one!

Great work!

That is very impressive! I can't imagine how much time was spent repairing the hood, fender, and door. It goes to show what can be done when you are forced to use what you have. You must be the envy of all your friends, driving what must be a rare car where you live.

Very,very nice. That was one heck of alot of work to say the least. I am impressed . Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you wanted to come to the USA and do body work like that you would have a job as long as you wanted to. Amazing

Welcome to the club. Fantastic save on the sheet metal. You have done some stellar work and the color is spot on as well. The whole Z , judging from the underside as well as the condition of the shinny side is vary good. Enjoy the ride. Gary

Very nice work! Outstanding job on beating out the dents. That is fast becoming a lost art. I love the color, it looks great on your Z!

Thanks everybody. ;) Actually, that's my dad's car, I'm just like a translator. :D I'd like to know, if there are any Datsun clubs in Europe? Any meets?

Yes, the work was hard and took a lof of time. But there's a result. :)

I'm still waiting news about that Datsun past owner. I would very like to hear the history.

P.S. Sorry for mistakes. :)

Hello Greddy,

There is a meeting in Germany around 1 of May, but I don't know if it's worth to ride more than 1000Km. Because most of the times you will meet only 3 or 4 classic 240/260Z.

You will see that the europeen scene is changing at the moment . The old scene is not intersted that hard anymore , and most of them have one or more a unfinished project. The interest has changed to family or other things.

But the new Scene is growing fast, they are intersted in old classic cars.

How many Km you would drive ?

Cheers

Rainer

I could drive to Germany, but I would like to see a lot of Datsuns there. Is it Grand meet in 1 of May or the normal meet? I think I would come only to grand meet, because of a long distance. And 3 or 4 240Zs are very little. :( Are there any meets, that all Europe come? :)

Looks great! Did you actually save the hood and fender or are they new? I also liked the pic of the frame straightening. Glad you could save it.
