  1. Hi, any chance of some answers to my previous letter? Please... I'm being left out here in the cold!

  2. Hi, Came across your Z with the 17" Rota RB-Rs and have spent time trying to find out what off-set you are running. The wheels appear to have a different offset front and rear. I have a '70 240Z and wish to go the same route - but without fender flairs. Can you please tell me what you settled with in the end? Are they both 8.5" front and back? What tyres ...sorry tire sizes would you suggest work best with this set up? If you have already answered these questions on this forum... please point me to the correct place. Many thanks.

  3. Thanks, I'm still in shock that it was on there. I check that website every day and to see my car on there was amazing. Its like the time that I sat courtside at a Rockets basketball game and got on tv!
  4. Woke up this morning to find my car on Jalopnik. I was shocked. I had joked with my brother about it in the past, but I never thought they would actually have my car on there!! Atleast 85% of the people think that its a Nice Pipe. Some great comments as well. Its still for sale if anyone is interested. http://jalopnik.com/5616412/for-7000-its-the-parting-of-the-red-z
  5. I would be skeptical that its actually 20k miles. The drive side seat shows some wear and scratches that would tell me its been driven a lot. But who knows. Its a nice Z and take it at that. I wouldn't pay any extra because of the mileage.
  6. Congrats on the sale. I'm hoping to have mine sold soon as well. Funny that I've been reading your posts for a couple years and I just figured out what your screen name says. Yes i'm an idiot.
  7. That Z looks like its worth every penny if not more!!! Haha. Come take a look at it and make an offer if you like what you see. Its not perfect, but if you can find one better for the same price you'd better buy it.
  8. Haha. I was hoping to get it to match closer but it still looks better than the original wheel. That picture makes it look off, but its not to bad in person. This one is a little better. Good luck with the sell.
  9. Looks like everyone in the Houston area is trying to sell their Z car. Must be the weather. To freaking hot to enjoy it. I'm trying to sell mine and i'm not sure if I will be able to get what i'm asking for. Not sure what its really worth either. I know how much i've spent and how much time i've spent on it as well. I don't think there are many Z's in better shape in the area. Never thought I would sell but oh well. Time for someone else to enjoy it.
  10. Hey Ben, I was wondering how your search was going. Just wondering how mine compared to some of the other Z's you have looked at. Have you looked at this one? http://houston.craigslist.org/cto/1810467036.html Or this one? http://houston.craigslist.org/cto/1800056036.html
  11. I watched it last night. Pawn Stars is one of my favorite shows. I couldn't beleive the offered the guy $4K. He wanted $16 and said that restored it would be worth $60!! haha. It was backfiring and had a miss. It was running like it had heat soak!!
  12. I'm pretty sure you are going to need a 77-78 coupe regulator. I know for sure there are atleast 3 different ones for the coupe. 70-73, 74-76, and 77-78. Also be carefull because the doors can be swapped. So you can have a 75 280z with a 77 door. Happened to me when I was looking for one. Ended up using one off a 74 260z. $125 seems a little steep, unless its a NOS part. Check ebay or post in the wanted ads. Ebay has a set for sale for $85.
  13. I love the look of my Rota RB-R's! So get the Konig's. Can't have to many Z's around here with the same wheels! haha!
  14. Yeah I got it resurfaced. New pressure plate and clutch.
  15. Is it normal to hear some noise when breaking in a new clutch? I hear a noise that sounds like tires chirping when I slip the clutch on a quick start. Its got about 1500 miles on it so far. Works fine.
