  1. 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.
  2. You should have used the ribbed version with the reservoir tip 👌
  3. 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 😉 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. A rusty Z in Arizona? ***Mind blown*** Seriously, please post some pictures to help assess the situation.
  8. 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.
  9. This picture needs to be posted on the boobs thread!
  10. 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 ?
  11. The perfect period-correct plate is probably hanging on the wall in a dive bar in Steubenville ?
  12. 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.

  14. Seat belt mounting points circled in red.
