  1. siteunseen, that photo you are talking about was taken at least 6 years ago. It was in the center of what is PPG office buildings, it was a car show on a Wednesday that is held in conjunction with the Pittsburgh grand prix that is held here every July. They have different location's throught the city to park cars. It's a great time to show off cars at different areas in the city and to people that would not normally go to car show.
  2. jfa, really nice looking car and group, really like the green one though, kinda partial to green.😁
  3. First car show of the year for me. 55 degrees sunny and windy but a nice day with over 400 cars on the main street of the little town of Irwin just east of Pittsburgh. I was the only Z car of the bunch. I usually am, not many of the early Z around the Pittsburgh area. I did talk to a couple of gents that owned Z's but did not bring them, they both said there cars were not worthy to show at the time.
  4. just a heads up the front side marker lights are on wrong. The need to be rotated 180 degrees. Sorry, i'm just picky about correctness.
  5. The 1975 - 2+2 was at the Pittsburgh Grand Prix last summer in July. It was in great shape, was purchased just prior to the July car show from the original owner who was from around Oil city that is north east of Pittsburgh. The car had around 19K miles at that time. I also saw the car listed on Bring a Trailer for around 19K last November or December if I remember right. I think it sold on BAT for around 19 to 20K. When I the car was here in Pittsburgh the engine bay was very rough with a lot of Zebart undercoating all over it.
  6. on my 76 - 280 the drivers door handle broke just like yours and I moved it over to the passengers side and the the passengers side to the drivers side. Took about 2 hrs. to do, hardest part was putting the nuts back on. Good luck.
  7. I need a set of rims for my 1980  280zx 4 lug 14 inch Thanks

      Sorry tim not much been busy.  I have no ideas where to look, except on the internet.

  8. This is mine it was added to the car in 1979 or 80. I have know idea the brand and it is made of a rubber material.
  9. whee, was the Z33 only to 2008 or 2008?
  10. The z32 barge stretched when posting, I know all are in a circle thanks.
  11. thanks so far, looks like i'm on the right track.
  12. Hi all, I would like to get conformation on some dates and designation for the Z. I am looking at the US market only. And skipping the 260 designation if different. S30 - from 1970 to 1978 and this badge. S130 - from 1979 to 1983 and this badge. Z31 - from 1983 to 1989 and this badge. Z32 - from 1990 to 2000 and this badge. Z33 - from 2002 to 2009 and this badge. Z34 - from 2009 to now and this badge. This is the information I have gleaned off of the internet, would like to have some conformation on the dates and the badges for each. Thanks in advanced, Michael
  13. ksechler, I have 1976 280 and am the original owner and like you have only driven my car. My car does not smell at all, you need the weather strips in the back hatch area and also good rubber seals around the tail light. My car is not loud, I have a normal muffler on it, I have only the stock sound proofing.. The car does get hot inside because the exaust pipe runs along the trans tunnel under the driver. I have 205 - 60 - 14 tires and they are simi hard to turn and very low speeds, at speed not a problem.
  14. Here is what I did back in June of 2013. http://www.classiczcars.com/topic/46799-fixing-black-pearl-style-mirrors/#comment-425892
  15. From what I see the car has 75, 76 back bumpers, the front bumpers looks like 75, 76 also, it look like they have blunter rubber ends than the 77. The color to me looks like the gold, the engine bay looks like it was repainted. You can see paint on the brake lines on the fire wall and at the connection at the charcoal canister. Door panels have been changed, shift knob is not stock and the radio is not stock. Also has the fan cover, might have had AC at one time. Has the air cleaner for a later model 76 where it pulls the air from the engine pay. My 11/75 -76 280z does not have this.
