    I found my 1972 240Z on Creigslist, it had been in a garage since 1983 because of a blown head gasket. My Z is a 11/71 build, 918 Orange with a White interior.

  1. Yep, Im here in St. Louis... and I dont directly know of any shops, but... Mark at Zee Works ((636) 942-3846) in Imperial MO (not far, near Fenton) can point you in the direction of a good rebuilder. He also has a barn full of parts including heads and motors if yours is too far gone. Mon-Thurs is the only time you can get ahold of him... he is, well knowledgeable... at least he can provide some input. -zee ya, Todd
  2. I have 2 dash emblems laying around somewhere from the resto of my dads 260Z. I'll look at my "big box-o-Z parts" tonight and see what i can find. -Todd
  3. If all connections are tight, check to see if you have power... Push the vol. knob and see if the little blue light lights up behind the AM/FM markings on the faceplate. The radio should also have a inline fuse, check that to see if it is blown. When I got my 1st '72 the radio would not make a sound, i played with the vol knob to loosen 23 years of storage dust off the internals and then glorious mono sound. If your Z seems untouched then the speaker wiring should be intact, but there may be a break in it somewhere. Tap into the speaker wire near the radio with a speaker and see if that makes
  4. Check the area near the inspection lid next to the washer fluid canister. The plate was moved halfway during the '74 model year. This is where is is on my dads '74 1/2 260Z.
  5. Just did this today, picked up a set from Pick-n-Pull for $5.83! My oem rubber was toast, so I started with the passenger side. The Kia weatherstrip went on super easy, I cut it at the bottom like the oem one. I was able to get the trim plate back on but it is not flush against the rocker. I moved my striker plate inward for a nice tight fit at the back. My only problem is the front edge of the window frame one spot has a two nickle thickness gap. I'm gonna tinker with it but overall it is a good fit. -Todd -FYI, Pick-n-Pull has a parts tracker on their website that will show what they have
  6. This site has alot of great photos and info on the EAS Rally Z cars http://www.z-point.nl/ -Hope this helps, Todd
  7. "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" -Bachman-Turner Overdrive. -This was the first song my dad heard in his original 260Z when he pulled off the dealer lot in 1974. The day we finnished work on his replacement 260Z in 2005 it was on the radio. And the day I drove my Z home, it was on, so that makes it our Z driving song.
  8. Wow, I just had that problem, my Z (for the first time) left me stranded at a gas station. I used the vinyl tool pouch tucked between the battery and fender, but that solution almost looks stock, kinda like the gas tank flap...
  9. It would be great to see a modern day comparison on the Z and its competitor's from back in the day. And hell, how awesome would it be to see The Stig in a S30!!! Top Gear is a great show but I can only igmagine what they might do to the Z twords the end...
  10. some of the plugs in the console area are for corner marker lights ("rear fogs")and fog/Driving lights for the front (red+green or black wires), pre-wired for the other markets Z's were sold. How are your turn signals working?, I don't see the film canister sized factory flasher unit on your column. also do you have a key in reminder buzz, its also on the column near the flasher unit. The two sets on plugs near the coulmn may be for those... Todd
  11. Could it be that your '72 did not have the "Fasten seatbelts" warning light and that pannel was replaced later with a later one?, looking at the harness from my 11/72 I do not see any square 4 plug... Do you have retractible seatbelts or the non retractable ones?
  12. Mine is on the backside of a spoke... "P-S" stamped, but no rim size??? <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/42150949@N07/4315664742/" title="100_2168 by Pleiner87, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4072/4315664742_3860eea686.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="100_2168" /></a> (Oh and that Vector is a American Racing Vector...)
  13. What the Primer or the Wheels..., I think it was the size of the tires on the wheels (fairly skinny). I like the 5 slots (kinda done to death though on Z's) like the Shelby Cal 500's, I'd love to find a set of American Racing Libre's (woah!) --Then again I always was a fan of The Dukes of Hazzard... what do you think.. "The General Zee". I have this one I need 3 more... <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/42150949@N07/4312569053/" title="100_2016 by Pleiner87, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4039/4312569053_6ac863eac1.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="100_2016
  14. The BRE Z is in my storefront (Pleiner87) for free, the EAS is still undergoing changes to decals to get them as close as possible. The BRE is listed as (John Morton BRE Z 46) for whoever that wants it. And Vote vote vote, for the 240Z!
