  1. He's actually mentioned in the past that his very first sports car was a Datsun Roadster.
  2. I'm working my way through the hundreds of photos I shot on Saturday. Here's a link to the Flickr photo set that I'm constantly updating: http://www.flickr.com/photos/46331602@N06/sets/72157627650906682/
  3. I talked with the owner of the wire tucked, clean yellow Z for a while when we arrived and later while waiting to leave. My car was the blue one in front of his. If I had known there were some forum members there I would have made more of an effort to track you guys down.
  4. I compared N series to E series and found some differemces which I documented here: http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php/topic/67639-cast-intake-manifold-dimensions-how-big-can-you-go/page__p__635737__hl__%2Bn36+%2Be88__fromsearch__1#entry635737
  5. I had the exact same problem. Cured mine by spraying starting fluid into the carbs. That got the engine to run long enough that the fuel pump pulled gas back up to the filter and everything was fine after that.
  6. You are right in being a little suspect, the '82 should have the F54 engine block (dished pistons on turbo, flat top on N/A). Like Travel'n said though, who knows what any number of previous owners or mechanics did. Nothing wrong with an N42 either, but it's anyone's guess what pistons it has. Could even be a JDM replacement.
  7. That was a state by state thing. Only a few actually titled the car based on the year it sold. Most went by model year instead.
  8. Yep, great stuff there. I bought all sorts of parts for my Z when I lived in Tempe and had a BAP nearby. Not many other parts stores automatically know how to order a piston and ring set for an L28 without having to ask "Whaaaa?"
  9. There, finally sorted through my pics from Saturday. About half of them made their way onto my Flickr page. Here's a link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/46331602@N06/sets/72157626529526272/
  10. I actually saw a 240Z this weekend sporting 280Z door panels. It caught me off guard because I hadn't known it was possible.
  11. I for one had a great time. It was nice to talk to people who could understand z-speak. I commented on one of your photos Coopfan, found my engine bay in there. I might upload some of my pictures, but it's going to take me a while. Also, not sure if the turbo'd car technically popped his engine on the dyno, he just blew apart the coolant overflow hose. Kinda felt bad for the guy directly across from me who got a hose-down with hot coolant. :sick:
  12. Spent 4 hours changing the oil pan gasket. Woulnd't have taken nearly as long if I didn't have to raise the engine to get my Arizona Z Car aluminum pan out. Well, and if the steel drain plug hadn't seized in the aluminum too...
  13. Hey, if the customer wanted a ZZZAP edition I'm sure the dealer could have probably found him one in their network and hooked him up with it. Or perhaps he'd waited for one so long that the dealer flet sorry for the guy and made him a little plaque for when the car finally arrived. As far as some special order job from the factory? I don't think that would have happened.
