    Slow and steady. I chose to get the valve cover powdercoated gloss black.

    Yesterday I took a 14 hour round trip drive through the San Juan national forest to pick up this 73. Fairly solid but has some frame rail rust.

    I just finished my taxes, so it's time for an update!

    I'm absolutely LOVING the Mikuni 44s!

    I need to schedule some dyno tuning this summer with Jeff Winter.

    Here's a video clip from the SU dyno runs I mentioned before. Sadly, they wouldn't let me touch the engine bay between runs. IIRC the numbers were right around 140whp/tq at 6000 feet.

    And here she is with the Mikunis and Fujitsubo kit:

    Is that the new style fujitsubo?  Sounds lovely.

    Jason240z, it's the previous version, I bought this less than a month before the new style was released.

    Tragic news.

    11/2019: I was entering my neighborhood, slowing down from 45mph and turning left. I cut my wheel 90 degrees directly on top of a 2 inch pile of sand and skidded into a guardrail at 10-15mph.

    I will be pulling my motor and drivetrain and selling this poor 240z on ebay within a month or two. She is definitely repairable but beyond my abilities.

    By luck I stumbled on a 1971 #18720 Series 1 car that will become my new project. I will use this thread for any further updates on the 1973's sale.
