  1. Should bring strong money. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-datsun-240z-152/
  2. Welcome to the group! I salute you for taking on such an extensive restoration on a 280Z. It is a bit disheartening that so much was paid for a vehicle, to hadve it shipped across the ocean only to discover such shoddy collision and rust repair work was performed on it. Hopefully the seller was totally upfront with you on the true condition of the vehicle during the sales transaction. That said, the car is now in good hands, and will be given a better life. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the rebirth 😊
  3. That's a lot of time and money spent to make a C-5 Corvette.
  4. Merry Christmas to all!! A small stocking-stuffer from my bride of over 30 years. She knows me too well ☺️
  5. I removed most of my coolant plumbing, SMOG equipment, and installed a euro balance tube to tidy up the engine bay. Since the car is a fair weather plaything, it doesn't need to be setup for temperature extremes.
  6. Not sure what if any value this bestows on your vehicle other than the equivalent of a participation trophy.
  7. That 507 would look perfect parked inside my custom gargage next to my 300SL Gullwing currently being polished by Scarlet Johansen wearing a string bikini πŸ˜†
  8. Maybe it's the angle or the gasket...but the carburetor spacer look like it's sagging a little in the middle. Hopefully it isn't cracked.
  9. You should have used the ribbed version with the reservoir tip πŸ‘Œ
  10. One of my quarantine projects was to clean out my files of old documents. While sorting through some old car receipts, I stumbled across an invoice from December of 2003 for a complete NOS exhaust system purchased from Courtesy Nissan. With a $70.00 freight charge, the whole system set me back $297.48. Given what a NOS exhaust system would run for today, I should have bought a couple more and sat on them πŸ˜‰ I recently saw a Datsun 240Z used parts ad for a pair of used Koito headlights with an asking price of $300.00, which got me to thinking: Anyone else have old receipts or recall the prices for parts that today would require the sacrificing of a kidney to own?
  11. I ordered a set of carburetor parts from Bruce today. Great, friendly service. Business must be good since the current turnaround time for rebuilds is March of 2021.
  12. I concur. The current Proto front end looks like the designers just gave up on it. I'm sure the aftermarket will have a lot of front end options to choose from when the final version comes out.
  13. I'm for keeping the new Z fossil fuel burner with an option of a twin turbo. Nissan should learn a lesson from the 2nd gen Acura NSX. It was intended to be a V-10, but went into production with a V-6 and electric motor assist, losing it's soul in the process. It's indeed a technical marvel and strong performer on paper but since 2016, less than 2000 have been built. Not really a marketplace success for a flagship model.
