My Z Cars

  • Zcars Owned
  • 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.

    1978 280z 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. Well maintained, never failed a smog test. Renovations include but not limited to: new paint (BMW taupe metal-fleck), new upholstery (in original burnt orange), new wheels and dash cap. Wooden steering wheel and stick shift nob from my old 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... Will have a price once tune up and general check up done. - Engine runs well and have only done the necessary or advised— as you can see. - Apron missing (under front bumper). - Rust spots under hatch - 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. Next up: service and repair record, or as much as I can lay my hands on. Let me know if need further photos. Thank you for interest and advice!
