  1. 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.
  2. A rusty Z in Arizona? ***Mind blown*** Seriously, please post some pictures to help assess the situation.
  3. When I was a teenager, all it took was a section of garden hose, a moonless night and a dependable lookout to get the job done.
  4. This picture needs to be posted on the boobs thread!
  5. So true. Additionally, I am noticing the BaT audience now expects walk-around, cold start and driving videos of vehicles on the auction site. There's a yellow 1971 240Z on BaT right now accompanied by a nicely produced video narrated by a fine English gentleman. If I ever sell my Z, I may have to hire Richard Attenborough to do voice work to get the best price 🤣
  6. The perfect period-correct plate is probably hanging on the wall in a dive bar in Steubenville 😉
  7. Nice find! The overzealous use of padding on the bottom seat cushions may be also contributing limited seat height. The car was probably reupholstered when replacement OEM style seat covers and door panel were not readily available.

  9. Seat belt mounting points circled in red.
  10. I got my spindle puller for about $40 from a guy on the HybridZ website. Granted, that was many years ago and the tool got lost in a move.
  11. It's the internet, there's always room. If you got the talent, time and resources to create an updated registry, go for it!
  12. For starters I would consult the following: https://zhome.com/ A lot of time and effort was put in to create this valuable reference. This will give you a good baseline on what is original equipment at a given time of the production series. I believe canvassing the community will produce conflicting information, given how many of surviving vehicles have changed hands over the years, and was at the mercy on what was available at your local Datsun parts counter when a replacement was needed.
  13. I had a Z where the PO just sawed off the main rail of the air gallery and crimped the ends. Another car I owned had it removed, plugs left in place and the holes plug welded. The latter looked much better.
  14. Welcome to the forum. In my opinion, the best tribute you can give your friend is to keep the car original and maintain it with the same level of care the automobile has become accustom to.
