  1. I believe you are about an hour away from Austin. Correct? That said, I would suggest contacting the Capital Z Club and find out where they are having their next membership meeting or event. Introduce yourself and express you interest in Z car and that you would like some advice. Many members have a wealth of knowledge and experience that they are willing to share. In fact, your networking skills may result in an offer to inspect a car with you. Better yet, a club member may know of someone who might be wanting to sell their car. Moreover, members have lots of situational awareness
  2. I suggest using a heat gun to soften the rubber housing enough to force it back in. While you have access to the choke cable itself, might as well replace the steel wire itself. Here's the step-by-step process: https://woodworkerb.com/home/datsun-240z-rebuild/repair-choke-cable/
  3. I have a full set dated 12/71 with brand new tires in SoCal.
  4. Bring a Trailer has taught the pedestrian novice that a green 240Z is worth upwards of $300,000, regardless of condition 😊
  5. In addition to the above stated, Hagerty Insurance valuation guide is a good reference. I also suggest this as well: https://zcarguide.com/datsun-240z-pricing-guide/
  6. I had a black set of black plug wires, but switched to NGK blues after hours of going down a trouble shooting rabbit thinking I had a fuel delivery/carburetor issue. For me, function and reliability is more important than aesthetics.
  7. I've sold many Z cars over the years. This one will probably change hands at my estate sale 😊
  8. Sorry to hear that ZCCC has been taken over by a few clowns. It was a good club back in the early 90's when this photo was taken.
  9. Since your profile says you're up in Fort Collins, have you reached out to https://www.zccc.org ? It was one of the best clubs with the most helpful members I was fortunate to be a part of when I lived in Denver years ago.
  10. Should bring strong money. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-datsun-240z-152/
  11. 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 😊
  12. That's a lot of time and money spent to make a C-5 Corvette.
  13. Merry Christmas to all!! A small stocking-stuffer from my bride of over 30 years. She knows me too well ☺️
