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.

Mr.Uemura was an engineer of Nissan ,he did great job especially chassis and components layout , not only that, he also was a chief of the test crew of 240Z in the US and Canada Oct -Dec 1969.
So many new facts we see in the book!! I have to tell you soon.

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
