Nissan 400z Rumors
Since the Nissan 370Z has been on sale for over ten years now, the wait for a new Nissan Z car to arrive is testing our patience. Nissan still hasn't officially announced plans to revive the Z car for a new generation, but our hype was recently rekindled when a report claimed the 370Z's replacement will be called the 400Z and be revealed within the next year.

280zx Restoration
I'm starting the restoration on my 280zx AE.  I have received some quotes on the process, and I have sticker shock.  May I ask what you spent.

Car54280zx, the restoration is absolutely fantastic, and has set the standard I will try to match.

Meanwhile, a Z432R sells for $805k in Japan
As everyone was watching (what we thought to be) a record breaking classic Z record on BAT, a much more impressive number was made in Japan.

1977 280z Light Restoration Project
Yet another Z fanatic makes progress on his car! Here's some information about his project.
New to the site. Just bought a 1977 280z. Its my second Z, but first S30 and I am ecstatic to get started. It seems pretty common place to introduce new projects here so I figured I would drop a note. 

Current Prognosis: Chassis is in good shape and car both starts and runs pretty well for its age, but definitely needs some dialing in. Going to keep it mostly original and focus on restoring its performance to 1977 spec.

New wiper blades?
My last Z had good rubber on the wipers so never paid much attention to them, this new car that I'm just about to put on the road doesn't even have old blades to go by, are there ready made blades that will fit these arms or do I have to go to a Z specific store?

Oh, and how long should they be?

Thanks, Chris

73 Z brings $52,500 on BaT
Unquestionably a nice example (and very professionally presented), so deserving of a premium price.  Still, it's a 73, where prevailing wisdom (now obsolete?) has said that these should be discounted relative to the 70-71 models.  Overall,  I think we're seeing a solid trend towards 'good' Z's moving up in value by $5K - $10K compared to a year ago.

Added a new classified ad system
Today I launched a new classified ads system on the site.  This new system integrates with your profile and gives everyone the capability to sell items.  It's a bit different than posting a regular forum message, so, I would appreciate your feedback.  The best thing about the new classifieds is the capability to self-manage and set expiration dates.  The entire system is database driven and gives our members extra features that were not available when we were using the forums.  Take a look at the new system and let me know what you think..  https://www.classiczcars.com/classifieds
