    '73 240Z I bought in Paris TX from it's 3rd owner, a HS kid whose Dad bought it for him as a project. It is the third S30 I have owned since '86 and has everything I wanted, factory color combo and model year.
  1. Did someone just discover Wangan Midnight and stir this pot again?
  2. I got the privilege of meeting Bill Reagan after he did this restoration and when the green 240Z he restored was sitting in his garage. I would say this car is well worth what was paid for it and its value will only increase provided it is cared for. It isn't a low VIN chassis but the quality of his work, the documentation he could reconstitute on the car's history plus his own of his restoration adds an enormous amount of the value. He was rewarded for his efforts from the recognition that came from Mr K, Gold Medallion, Franklin mint etc. I hope the car is entered in to more events and recognized even more for the condition it is in and the quality restoration that was done. If there is one that is in equal or better condition, it has yet to be unearthed so this is a worthy "blip" for what it is and what others aren't. BTW The green car he restored sold in April for almost $70K but didn't appear to have been cared for as well nor did it have the recognition, I hope it gets shown at prestigious events because it too is an exceptional build. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1970-datsun-240z-36/
  3. I bought aftermarket and they lasted about a year, bought Nissan 3 years ago and they're still good
  4. If you find any more information on early Zs racing in japan please let me know, I'm curious about their efforts myself.

    Beautiful car, amazing backdrops to enjoy and really neat garage, well done sir.
  6. This was at Warner Robins towing about 18 months ago.
  7. Talk to Chet Wittel, GA Z club? He probably has one in Marietta.
  8. This is where I get accosted by 60+ year old folks at a gas station or in traffic who say "I used to have one of those" or "My friends Dad drove one". Great to see a gathering of S30s like that.
  9. I'm not sure what it takes to get in but the Heritage museum would be fantastic. Tokyo tower, touristy things around Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku. Nissans HQ is downtown too. Two days in Kyoto to see temples would be a recommendation, maybe a day in Nikko.
  10. My first ZCON and I had a great time. Great people and awesome cars plus our special guests for the tech talks, conversation etc. Thank you to GA Z club and Fairlady Z Alliance for doing a great job, I appreciate your hard work and had a great time.
  11. Probably, I had the red 240 with the bronze TE37 wheels
  12. I saw two orange 240s that were built that same month at ZCON. Gentleman from SC owned both of them and was selling them.
  13. I'm glad someone is taking a Singer-esque approach to 240Zs, whether anyone approves of their touches or not. The cars look fantastic, I'm hoping some of what they produce for their cars will end up in the aftermarket for the rest of us.
  14. The key I remembered in my research about getting a set of Mikunis or any triples is they need to be tuned by someone who knows what they are doing. Have the valves adjusted, make sure the timing is good and, if at all possible, tune them on a dyno. I found someone who did all of that and my Mikunis run like champs. A well tuned set of SUs will perform great on the street and will do 90% of what a set of triples will do performance wise, it's that last 10% when you're really laying in to the throttle that triples perform. On the other hand, you could probably sell the triples and buy a set of ZTherapy SUs which would be easier to tune and give great daily driving/autocross performance. Make sure you get a good heat shield for either setup, my SUs vapor locked more easily than the triples do but it was always something I was paying attention to, especially in the summer.
