  • About my Cars
    My first Z was a 1976 240 that I bought in San Diego in 1998. It had a number of problems that I was slow to realize but being such an eminently fixable car we just kept going till a ditch got in the way. I salvaged the wooden steering wheel and stick shift nob.
    Then I found a 1978 280Z in very good shape and have been keeping it that way ever since. I had the wooden steering wheel intstalled, the seats reupholstered and new wheels put on. It is a joy to drive.

  1. View Advert 1978 280z for sale 1978 280z, 5 speed transmission Smog certified on April 13th. Has never failed Runs great but needs a number of repairs and general attention. Odometer reads 45K and that’s probably just what it is. Bought in 1999 from original owner with under 20K miles on it. I barely drive it nowadays and it just isn’t fair to the car. Renovations include but not limited to: new paint (BMW taupe metal-fleck), new upholstery (in original burnt orange), carpeting, radio and speakers, new wheels and dash cap. Wooden steering wheel and stick shift nob from my old 1976 240z. This car is a joy to drive. When I’m on the road people wave, high-five and yell compliments at stop lights— it makes my day! Best conversation starter, ever, but you probably know all about that... - Engine runs well and have only done the necessary or advised to it as well as regular maintenance. - Apron missing (under front bumper). - Rust spots under hatch - Window tinting needs removal and/or replacement - RPM gauge seems stuck - Driver’s side door doesn’t completely latch sometimes. I lock the door when driving but it’s gotta be fixed of course. - Removed several badges when had car stripped and painted but have them. - Tool kit is all there, never been used. Regulation issue Datsun spare tire inflator canister! And original spare tire which has transferred rust stains to well. - I hate letting this car go... The main criteria for purchase is convincing me you have the time and inclination to give this car the care and feeding it deserves. Let me know if you’d like further photos or information.
