    GQ Magazine Interview

    Hey guys, so I just had a great interview with one of the writers for GQ Magazine and GQ Style Magazine out of New York. They are doing a 6-page spread about the Classic Z and it will be published around the August 2018 timeframe. We had a lot of fun on the phone and I talked about the classic Z and our club for most of the interview. We went into depth about why the Z is so great, and my final conclusion was community. If it wasn't for this car, this group, and all of the friends I've made along the way this car would be just another boring classic. Keep your eyes posted for updates as well as promotional material forthcoming over the next month. By the way, if you're wondering WHY GQ magazine is doing such as spread... He says this car has stood out as an icon to the classic car world. It's got a huge following and the classic Z's are showing up at more and more auto shows and events. They want to put a spotlight on the world we live in and show how much our community of Z enthusiasts keep this wonderful hobby alive. They will be doing an article similar to this one. I'm happy to see a stylish magazine like GQ take an interest and promote our way of life. Keep it up guys... Mike

    Ontario Z Car Club Forum is Down?

    I hear you... facebook sucks. It is unsearchable, content not accessible from the real world and all the data fades into an endless scroll. Facebook is like living in a gated community. It is fueled by the general public's insanity of photographing themselves and their food.

    Just wanted to share some photos of my Z over the years... This photo is just after I bought and rebuilt the engine. I drove it around through college. At the time, I purchased the car from a family friend who was storing the car in his garage. Purchased for $500 with a frozen engine block, bad head gasket, and seized brakes. After a few years, and the first split with my ex, I decided to 'man-up' and start taking the car apart. I spent the next several years sand blasting, with a gravity feed blaster, and disassembled the entire car. I then took her to a body shop of a guy in Corvallis, Oregon. he did the unibody work and painted the inside. The drive-train and brakes were installed so I could push it around in the garage. Soon thereafter, I re-united with my ex and we moved to a place in Albany, Oregon where I managed to get some more work done and the car painted. My Z then sat in this state for 4-5 years, neglected in the garage while I went through some even more challenging "life" situations (new house, final divorce, etc, etc) At one point, I ran into Steve Epperly from Ztherapy at a club outing. After hearing my story, he brought about 6 guys to my house and proceeded to take my car to his shop for restoration. This process took about a year. Until finally one day, he called me over and said, "Your car is running, do you want to see it?" We fumbled around with the car for another few months until Steve went to the Portland Roadster show and showed off the project for all to see. I then took delivery of my baby and drove her around to various different events and functions. I must say, without the support and encouragement of the Z community, this project never would have happened. Our cars may follow us through a lifetime, but, its always rewarding to sit back and appreciate the accomplishments. Sometimes I just go sit in my Z and stare at all the wonderful parts surrounding me. Thank you to everyone for all the support over the years, I wouldn't be here without you. Mike

    And I can attest that all of the ClassicZ members I've met are incredibly stylish. Myself included! From the Al Borland collection.

    @jalexquijano DON"T TAKE THE DISTRIBUTOR OUT. Don't oil anything. For now, Just replace the distributor cap, rotor and #4 plug. I still want to know if any other plugs were sooty. If you used too much choke or left it on too long the the last time you warmed it up, it's likely that all the plugs look like #4. #1 Don't fix what ain't broke. #2 Check the other plugs. #3 Replace the Dist. cap, rotor and #4 if it's the only one that 's black. #4 Be sure that all the wires are fully inserted into the cap. #5 Drive it and report back.

    Till death do us Datsun

    My Mom fell in love with my Dad's car then married him, had me and divorced when I was 3. So I'd have to go with worse for my situation.

    Let's show vintage racing pictures. I'll start.

    Looks like a killer Steve Parmley type autocross car!
  10. Well at least Im not the only one that does that kind of thing. A couple of weeks back I was cleaning my ballast resistor and it looked like new for about 20seconds until I dropped it and it shattered.What are the rollers and impeller like? This one seems worn when I compare it to the phots on Alanticz and from memory of my in car unit. I would like to keep the original style. Thats why Im tinkering with this one. It works, but it sounds awfull and it doesn't pump as much as the one on the car now. Site, Thanks, I have read just about every page on Blues Atlanicz site. Its an ecellent source of info. The tech tip on these pumps is more external and replaceable things like o-rings. My problems with this pump is its worn out. Really no other word for it. Thats why I thought Id play with it a little, if I stuff it up no loss and I can always go aftermarket with the Bosch pump.They use them here a lot on the old BMW, VW, Alfa and porches etc with the bosch J jetronic systems. Bosch still make them in the Cheq republic I think. The maximum pressure is a little higher than the original, but that is controlled by the FPR. Google this part number 0580254984 and you will find them easy enough. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bosch-0580254984-POMPA-CARBURANTE-ORIGINALE-Volvo-240-turbo-Porche-911-/371382769888?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_101&hash=item56782358e0&vxp=mtr http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001CO2LI2/ref=as_sl_pd_tf_lc?tag=boschfuelpumps-20&camp=213381&creative=390973&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B001CO2LI2&adid=18GFZW2S9TJX21X6FHXH&&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.boschfuelpumps.com%2F
