    COVID-19

    Faith Renewed - last November, I saw an add on Bookfaced for Datsun Z face-masks. Some guy was selling "Datsun Z" logo masks. I ordered and payed for three different logo masks...and...a set of shoulder harness pads with Datsun Z logos. I had given up on getting them and just wrote off the money as another scam. But behold the mail today they arrived!!! Very nice product. Very happy with them. I take back and apologize for everything I said!!!
  2. Chester / Herod is what I have for both my cars.
  3. Both of my original manuals are dated after my cars were built; December 20, 1969. I can make sense of that. I haven't ever tracked what I might term as publication dates, however I would imagine that Nissan printed owner manuals at certain date intervals rather than monthly. I don't think necessarily that an earlier version of the 5/70 is "more appropriate", just watch out for the Vintage Z program reproductions. They were issued March, 1977.
  4. I signed up for Beck's registry way back when for the same reasons. I didn't get no stink'n sur-tif-cate Carl!!! More power to the guy - pass the baton'.
  5. That doesn't look like any big deal. Have the block cleaned and see what happens. You're going to inspect the block after it is cleaned anyhow.
  6. What do you think FOX would say if they found out Obama had a Chinese bank account?

    Well, yes, the part about the tariffs. I'm tired of the lies. "The only country set up to deal with it was Taiwan. They learned from SARS and put measures in place in advance.... good planning." WRONG! USA was set up not only in this country but on a world stage. The United States had measures set in place after SARS and Ebola. The current administration took all that apart. Fact. Look it up. Both of them are bad leaders, you say? One of them hasn't lead yet and the other isn't a leader and cannot be described that way, obviously. Get ready for mandatory masks. Both France and Germany have gone to mandatory masks in public. I just bought some very stylish Datsun Z masks. They are going to be all the rage. And speaking of masks; does anyone know how well ZCON did with virus transmission? Did anyone get the plague from ZCON?

    Yea, talk to the farmers about that policy. And talk to the taxpayers about the subsidies going to the farmers because of that policy. But, oh!, the tariffs are paying the subsidies! I'm tired of this. Biden fixed the economy that caused me to put my cars in storage (I'm real lucky that I still have them) and I'm betting on Biden again. "Less Worse", who are YOU kidding?

    Three friends of mine have contracted the virus. One of them died. Sorry for your loss AK260.
  10. Oh by all means, yes, alignment matters. Make sure your transmission mount and engine cross brace are aligned properly. String and align your sway-bar mounts.
  11. I certainly don't feel bad. I didn't like this car from the beginning. BaT has an interesting feature where you can track sale prices over a number of years and the Datsun 240Z has a very distinct line of average sale prices to help you determine "the market". Type in "Datsun 240Z" in the BaT search bar and you will get a graph. Each bullet on the graph links to the actual listing. What has sold in the six figures have been Vintage Zs and provinance Zs like the Franklin Mint Car. Then there was the 300k car that is way out there in oddball land. I think this no-sale was good for the market in that what The Guild said; once you get into the six figure area, it really gets nit-picky, and it should.
  12. There's a white / blue 1970 on BaT right now.
  13. The front wheel-covers don't match the rears. Two different designs and two different paint jobs.
