  1. What would be the best way to get rid of the rest of the bad fuel? The tank is right on empty.
  2. I've already figured that this is a project that's gonna take a long time before its done, so its worth it just to be patient. Just like any other restoration. I'm fully prepared for the Z to sit for a while haha. I just recently bought a Kobalt toolkit w/ all the metric and standard sockets, and combination wrenches. That's probably all I need for right now.
  3. Thank you! I just downloaded all of the service manuals. The weather is so hot out here I'm not gonna start any work until it cools down. There is no way I could let myself sell this car haha.
  4. Update: I checked out the VIN plate by the driver door and discovered that the build date was june, 1970. Not 1969. The VIN# is HLS30-06370
  5. @jfa.series1 Thank you very much for the advice! Where do i find the build date at?
  6. @hunter260z Im for sure gonna remove the old gas before I drive it again. Would it be a good idea to pull the fuel tank and clean it? Im gonna get some cheap tires for the time being while the car sits.
  7. @psdenno Im glad to hear that there's another Z owner in Palm Springs! I will definitely let you know when its time to get the name of that mechanic. I actually have the ash tray, and it is back in the car.
  8. Thank you for the advice! I will be sure to read up on the repair threads. Its great to have a project car to learn on! Also, this won't be my daily driver, I will probably get something cheap and good on gas.
  9. First of all, I am very new to this forum haha. There has been a late-build 1969 240z in my family ever since my grandpa bought it brand new in 1969. It sat for 30 years, mostly outside in southern California. It only has 83,xxx miles on it! My family doesn't want to get rid of the car, however nobody, except for me, is interested in restoring it or fixing it up. As for me, I am 16 years old and a HUGE car enthusiast. Im the only one in the family who wants the 240 to fix up. My aunt and uncle recently brought the car to my house in Palm Springs. This is how the car looked when it arrived: M
