  1. Hey, I'm in the Baton Rouge area! Would love to connect with another Z local enthusiast.
  2. It's pretty crazy to a guy like me also, a newbie. I bought my first Z in April 2020 as a Covid car project, after loving them from afar all my life. It's a 1973 original owner car with original paperwork, title, etc. It's white with red interior, and I've restored most of it, except kept the pearl white he repainted it instead of Kilimanjaro White. It had sat most of the last 20 years, mainly I think because he was not a mechanic, and the mechanics he used didn't know how to handle flat top carbs, I'd guess. I've swapped in SU carbs, upgraded to a performance coated header and exhaust, etc. Having fun with the restoration. Even found the original radio in a box of his stuff. I want to keep it and enjoy it, but man this market....
  3. Almost like he was using it as a dry run for a BAT auction.
  4. This beautiful green/butterscotch 1971 is up to $78K on autohunter.com. https://autohunter.com/Listing/Details/10950789/1971-Datsun-240Z
  5. That looks like a true "survivor" car. I noticed the shoulder straps. Are that how they go? I've still got those in a box that came from the original owner. I figured out that they bolt to the hole above the quarter panel windows, but other than that I haven't yet gotten the whole picture.
  6. Definitely was doctored. That's too bad. Fyi, Here's my 1973 numbers plate from a couple of different angles.
  7. Curious... What's the proper definition here of a "survivor" Z?
  8. Just found this thread. I have a '73 Z that has a good paint job, but it is in a pearl white, not the original Kilimanjaro stock white. I'm wondering if a wrap is the better way to go. Can I even special order a vinyl wrap to match the original stock color? I would not want to do the wrap myself.
  9. I finally put this to use while restoring the rear end cosmetics. See pic:
  10. Update! Got the parts from @dutchzcarguy, after they took a leisurely world tour through several postal systems. Put them on today.
  11. What year is yours? It has the orange blinker lenses. Was that a Euro vs US thing?
  12. Why are there so many of these (including mine) that have the rear plate redone in black?
  13. I love that lime-green-chartreuse color. Never been a fan of silver. I guess those 70s and 80s silver stock finishes that seemed to morph into car exema turned me off.
  14. I'd definitely take a dry run in this thread before I actually posted mine for sale.
