  1. When I had my car , a 72, I was at a car show and a guy asked me why I installed a NISSAN engine in my Corvette
  2. I'm feeling a litttle lazy today and didn't read all the posts so if someone already said this I apologize for repeating. I had the same issue as others have noted. Once it was the coil connection, once it was a clogged filter and once it was the pickup in the fuel tank. When it was the coil, the engine died like someone turned the key. The filter was more of a loss of power and then died. The fuel pickup was more like the coil problem. You stated that the car would start right back up once it died. That doesn't sound like the coil connection. When the pickup gets blocked, fuel flow stops. When the engine dies suction at the pickup stops, this will allow fuel flow until the pickup gets blocked again. My two cents.
  3. It looks like individual parts. Air dam, rear spoiler, fender flairs, painted bumpers. Most everything can be purchased from motorsport auto. Not really a kit as such.
  4. Mine did that at times and I figured it was caused by moisture creating a thin bond of rust. Was never a real problem except the first time cause I didn't know what had happened. If everything else looks good that would be my bet. Enjoy the ride.
  5. There was a thread "somewhere" in this site that addresses using a Hyundai weatherstrip. Can't remember what model though. It would be in the thread. Just a thought.
  6. Just a thought to share. I had a problem such as yours and found that I had a vacuum leak at the brake booster. Each time I came to a stop my car would want to die. I replaced it and problem solved.
  7. I have owned six. The 72 240z, 66 Mustang convt., 58 MGA, 66VW, Corvair, and the Caravan. Along with various others that did not make their list.
  8. I had rejetted 40's on my L28 and I was told 44's would be better, just could not find any at the time. I loved the sound and performance difference. With the 40s I didn't even have to change my cam. That may be something you will need to do. Even if you don't use them now, get them if they seem to be a deal. good luck
  9. I agree with Will one Z makes an event and sometimes it doesn't even have to be at a show. Can be at a 7-11. The first show I took my car to I was placed between a SS396 and a Dodge Duster. You should have seen the looks on the ole boys faces when I got 1st place.
  10. Well, the good news is that my car was found---The bad news is, it was found in a Haines City citrus grove as a burned out shell. Have Haggerty insurance. Was covered for what it cost me to build, but not for what it would cost for someone to rebuild for me. That will most likely be the last car I build. No point in having something nice for some low life to distroy. Thanks for asking about her. Barrie
  11. Found my VIN HLS3055595. Thanks for the support, pretty much bummed my day.
  12. Yes, details. The avatar is my car. It is a 1972. Located in Lakeland, Florida. Nissan Champagne in color. Saddle tan interior. Custom door panels and diamond uph. over hump. L28, don't have #. 40mm mikunis with long intake. K&N filters. Brand new 5 year old NOS dash. Wooden Grant steering wheel. Orig. Nissan shifter knob. 5 speed. 280 rear bumper, car color. Custom grill with custom Z emblem. Polished valve cover. Panasports, silver, 15" in front, 16" in rear. If I think of more I will edit. And thanks!
  13. My Z is gone. Stolen last night. If anyone sees her I would appreciate a PM.
