  1. If you are not entered in a Concours d'Elegance event, why should it matter?
  2. I bought every issue hoping someday I'd find a sudoku puzzle.
  3. Just imagine how the 240Z would have been received if it had an LS swap.
  4. Here's my contribution to the 918 Anonymous club. This paint job is about 2 years old and done in old skool acrylic enamel.
  5. Well, any potential rodent issues have been dealt with.
  6. Is there caked dirt on the clutch pedal? If not, that looks pretty worn for a low mileage car.
  7. Speaking of VZs, I found these shots of a program car on display I took back in 2002 at the MSA show in Orange, CA. If my memory serves me, it was for sale at the show in the mid 20K range. I don't believe Gunderson Nissan was one of the authorized original Vintage Z car resellers. Being this was taken a few years after they were first sold, I wonder if it spent part of its life as a showroom display or maybe was traded in for a 300ZX and brought to the show to find a buyer. I wish I had taken a photo on the VIN.
  8. I'm so glad this website is still up 😄 http://woodworkerb.com/home/datsun-240z-rebuild/general-tips-tricks/ There is good deal of restoration tips to include the fuel tank and hoses. It even has a section on replacing your broken or worn choke cables with piano wire.
  9. It's all relative, I guess 😊 I'd hate to tell you what I paid for a complete braided hose kit for the engine bay at JDM Car Parts online. 😱
  10. I did the POR 15 route on my tank and painted it. Before re-installing it, I bought a new sending unit and had all the fuel hoses replaced using the kit below: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-240z-braided-fuel-hoses-complete-kit-with-clamps-for-entire-fuel-system/303199535108?hash=item469819c004:g:rioAAOSwkx5XEF-n The kit came with bent hoses to avoid having to improvise.
  11. Welcome to the forum. Don't know you paid for it, but looks like a gem definitely worth keeping in stock condition. Did old lady down the street give you any specific reason for the car's decades long hibernation? My guess is the 3rd gear syncro was going out and her husband never got around to addressing it. It might worth opening the gearbox and taking a look. I use to live in Denver off of 6th and Quebec back in the early 1990s, and recall seeing a red 240Z in the area. Maybe it was this one.
  12. It's sad to see such an early car in such deplorable condition. For the longest time these vehicles were seen as disposable and fell pray to adolescent whims and abuse. I plead guilty to hammering a few Z cars in my youth. I applause those who saw beyond that and preserved the ones that are quickly approaching the half-century milestone.
  13. On a related note: The car has made the mainstream interweb, along with the obligatory volatile commentary. https://www.thedrive.com/news/28433/completely-stock-1970-datsun-240z-sells-for-baffling-124k-on-bring-a-trailer?fbclid=IwAR0nh7iO5NCfTMXx05cZ8wdaIBRRM81KMINsIVwRoD4t-_NsMh5MTYQBhgc
  14. https://www.facebook.com/The-240z-Guild-463701714192371/ They are located in Madill, Okalahoma.
  15. Very nice car. It's just missing just one more important option to complete the ensemble: a vinyl roof 😎 My very first 240Z was brown/butter scotch automatic with a faux aligator-skinned 3/4 vinyl top.
