240z in Europe

    Recommended Posts

    Doug, I'm from Craiova, but now i live in Bucharest. It would be interesting to talk to you about bringing a car here. Unfortunately, i don't have too much money right now. But it's a great ideea.

    Adrian, you mean this year? This isn't a good time for me.. but we could stay in touch if you could bring another container somewhere near the end of 2009, start of 2010. :)

    This will be fun in finding a 240z in eastern europe. I will be moving my lhd 240 to my parents in Poland, so I can take part in some european classic events and from what I know it will be third 240Z there.

    I am sure there are plenty american cars in lithuania - there are quite a few in poland - hence specialist importers of spares for those. Probably they can import for you what you need. Since you joined in feb 2008, you should realise thet there are quite few cars that can be used for donor parts. Unfortuantely those will be just as unique as the 240 in europe...

    Somebody posted list of suppliers: if $$$ no issue. Z in europe is no cheap hobby.

    good luck

    2 fast 2Z: are we discusing a nationalist sentiments here or the Z car? Are you in the right forum?

    Hi all,

    I'm a transplanted Canadian living in Cologne, Germany. I've always liked the earlier Z cars but have never been in a position to purchase one. I'm finally getting around to entering the workforce ;) and have been giving Z's a serious thought. Are there many available in Germany? Also, were any of them ever offered with an automatic transmission? Reason I ask is that I'm a bilateral lower leg amputee and driving a stick is a tiresome and dangerous exercise, especially in the city. I've got a good background in mechanic'ing so I'm pretty confident I can keeping the car in good running shape. If anyone has a link to Germany-specific Z car info that would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

    Hi,

    You could also expand your search to the rest of Europe.

    There are some Z as well in France for instance.

    Regaridng the gearbox, some people in France have swapped their car from auto to manual. So some auto gearbox are available if required if the Z you're looking at is not AT.

    Adam, i know of a 240Z up for sale here in Denmark, it's a US import, missing a door and i think it is a stick, but you can follow Lazeum's advice and search for a conversion.

    Wow, thanks guys!!! I was actually hoping to start researching about the feasibility of owning one of these gems and I've already got a free auto lined up, that's gotta be a sign!.....right? :D I'm looking at the late fall/early winter as far as when I'll have the cash together so it might make more sense to wait until the spring to begin the search in earnest since it sounds like they're not huge fans of staying rust free when driven in snow without the proper prep. I don't have an indoor garage at the moment either so without a place to store it all winter it probably wouldn't make much sense picking one up.....yet ;) Any recommendations for what to look in a good runner? Also, is there a good online source for repair information and documents? Thanks guys!!!
