  7. Next question, did you weld in any hooks so you can hang it? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Would you be happy if the new Nissan Z car looks like this? It's been over ten years since the Nissan 370Z launched, so a replacement is long overdue. Thankfully, our patience will eventually be rewarded. A recent report claims the new Nissan Z car will be called the 400Z and debut within the next year. Exactly what the car will look like is anyone's guess, however. The styling could be an evolution of the current 370Z. Alternatively, rumors have suggested the new Nissan Z car will have a retro-inspired design that pays homage to the sports car's heritage. Penned by artist Leyang Bai, this render design shows what the 370Z's belated successor could look like with retro-inspired cues inspired by the original Z car. Dubbed the Nissan Fairlady 480Z, the rendered car's design blends Nissan's current design language with the 240Z's sporty silohette, round headlights, and distinctive tail lights, and the result is a stunning modern interpretation of the original Nissan Z car. From start to finish, the entire design process took 294 hours. The artist says the final design "serves as a reminder of the original but with modern tastes and finesse." We can only hope the new Nissan Z car looks as good as this after such an arduously long wait.
  9. Looks like the new Nissan Z car will give the Supra a run for its money. Source: https://carbuzz.com/news/nissan-400z-will-be-much-cheaper-than-toyota-gr-supra Since the Nissan 370Z has been on sale for over ten years now, the wait for a new Nissan Z car to arrive is testing our patience. Nissan still hasn't officially announced plans to revive the Z car for a new generation, but our hype was recently rekindled when a report claimed the 370Z's replacement will be called the 400Z and be revealed within the next year. Sources claim the 400Z will be powered by an Infiniti-sourced 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 sending around 400 horsepower to the rear wheels through either a Nismo-tuned automatic or a six-speed manual. Sav This would make the Nissan 400Z more powerful than the Toyota GR Supra, which produces 382 hp from a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six in its most powerful guise. It turns out the Nissan 400Z could have another huge advantage over the Supra, too. Citing inside sources, Allcarnews claims the Nissan 400Z will have a starting price of less than $40,000, making it more affordable than the GR Supra. For reference, the 2021 Toyota GR Supra starts at $40,000 for the 2.0 model and $49,990 for the more powerful 3.0 version. This perhaps isn't surprising since the Nissan 370Z is also a very affordable sports car, starting at $30,090. As for the design, the same sources claim the Nissan 400Z will have a retro-inspired design that will look like a modern-day version of the 240Z and Z32-generation 300ZX. As a result, the styling will be a radical departure from Nissan's current V-Motion design language, featuring double halo ring LED lights at the front and a 240Z-style rectangular front grille with a visible intercooler for the twin-turbos. The rear will also retain the 370Z's fastback design but will apparently be shorter, while the taillights will look sleeker and incorporate LEDs. Inside, the interior will also be extensively upgraded with a new digital dashboard, infotainment system, and some retro touches. Sadly, we don't have a reveal date for the Nissan 400Z yet, but we're hoping the next-generation Z car will break cover sometime this year.
  10. Ah, yes I had moderation turned on. I'm shutting it off until we get through the testing..

    Seat Rail Differences

    Test entry covering differences between seat rails of the Z: Left, 240Z, 1970-1973 Up to 7/73 Center 260Z and 75-76 280Z. (Date range....) 8/73 - 7/76. (?) Right 280z 1977-78. 8/76- 78 Rear of the sliders is at the top of the picture. Sorry about that. 240z. Studs in sliders go through holes in seat base. Nut/lock/flat attach (awkwardly !) from underside of metal frame. 260/280 . Round headed hex M8x1.25 chrome bolts attach through slider into captured nuts in seat base frame. Notes that come to mind: Since the way the sliders attach to seat bases is different as well, I should include pictures of the seat bases, but only from the perspective of the way the sliders mount, Not the webbing, or upholstry differences.

  12. Give the wiki a try... let me know what you think. I can add categories later so just use the default one for now. m
  13. Yeah I just noticed that... the ads from Infolinks are supposed to be agnostic to the website (meaning, they are added in real time and don't affect the code). but it appears that quoting a post with an ad will carry the ad forward. You can delete it, if you use the "Source" button to look at the code. I'm debating whether or not we need Infolinks anyway. They really don't pay that much to help us keep the lights on. Google ads have been the best so far.. Mike
  14. I'll leave it to you guys if you want to do a wiki-style system or a new forum. You can see my examples above for the wiki and most of you already know how the forums work. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  15. Hmm... I can only set moderation for new posts, not edits. That's strange... I'll keep looking to see if there's another setting elsewhere.
  16. Not a bad idea... let me check to see if I can flag wiki edits for moderation. That should help offset any issues.
  17. Not saying that trusted free members will cause issues, it's more about others who can edit content without going through some kind of vetting.
  18. That also brings up another question, should we let free members edit the content? It may be ok, but, it may also open ourselves up to a lot of grief...
  19. Ah, let me check permissions... Zed Head is in the regular members group and I need to make sure that group has edit rights.. Edit: Ok, database permissions updated. @Zed Head please give it another try.
  20. FYI, there's also a wiki-style system. The purpose of the wiki allows everyone to contribute or modify others' entries. Here's a sample: https://www.classiczcars.com/wiki/ I like the wiki-style because the system maintains a history of edits. If a new entry isn't quite accurate, we can revert back to the old one. Take a quick look and you can test it out yourselves. m

    test wiki entry

    testing to see how the wiki works Edit: I just edited this entry to see how this is going to maintain the history zKars just added this entry to see if I can edit it. Clearly I can Zed Head here - Okay, I see a new thing, the Edit down in the left corner. Maybe I missed it before. Yes Mike, it could get messy. Who knows. Mike: I may have to restrict the edits to certain groups. Adding an image of a very cool car... This is another illustration of a carb set:
