  1. The Master of Space & Time! Been to more of his concerts than probably any other single artist/band. Got to tour his home on the lake outside of Tulsa at one of the Lifer's Birthday Bashes some years ago. Hope y'all don't mind another one.
  2. I'm looking at it now; says the listing ended.
  3. I figured it was something like that, but I just couldn't resist. Friends in (or with) "high places" are good!
  4. That's really purdy under there! And, it's always nice to be able to stop. Toyota m(aster) diagnostic tech?

  6. Well, the craigslist ad in your link was flagged for removal. Posts it on cl and then wants to do the transaction thru eBay? Kind of raises the red flag for me.
  7. Since you didn't say whether or not you called them, I just left messages on both numbers. Hope they get it back and it's OK.
  8. EDIT: Thanks to Patcon for the notifications to us locals! I might not have seen this thread in time to offer assistance.
  9. I did meet with the seller of this car yesterday, gave it a look over, test drive and responded back to notWes. The car needs work, no doubt, but it has a solid foundation to work with; some minor rust bubbling in only a couple of spots and some other minor paint imperfections that will require a complete strip-down and repaint later. Similarly, there were some minor mechanical issues that will need attention, but it can be driven and enjoyed right now as the seller has been doing. I thought that the seller presented the car honestly and accurately, although he isn't as knowledgeable (or, f
  10. Hi there, notWes, and welcome to the forum! I'd be happy to go check the car out for you. By chance, is it a '71 silver automatic? I'll shoot you a PM and we can chat. Gary norcal z in SoCal
  11. Hello Mike, 


    You joined this club on my 35th birthday and live in the same town as my daughter, so I will reach out with a question:

      My name is Darrin Jones. I am a newbie here. I am seriously thinking of buying a 1978 280Z that has been made into a convertible. Wanting to get a real Z car guy's opinion first.  will attach a few photos:

    I went to look at this car and was surprised. It seemed in better shape than I hoped it would be. 

    Please call IF convenient. I am on the road from Amarillo, TX to Albuquerque, NM and then down to Tucson, AZ.then SOB

    Thanks - D.J.




  12. Hey, Mike, as Chris said, welcome to the club and congrats on your purchase! I understand your comment about being concerned about driving a car that's too nice; I'd also rather have one that I don't worry about driving. Good luck with it, start a thread and post lots of pics as you sort through it and make it yours.
  13. Mike, yes, it was the orange '71. I came in on the broadcast after it had begun, so I don't know who the guys in the booth were. It was on NBCSN.
  14. Agreed, that isn't much for a pretty nice looking Z. But as we know, automatics don't fetch the prices of standard tranny cars all other things being equal, so I think that should be expected. Anyway, the guy who gave the shout-out was closing out the other guy bickering over it being an auto, so I thought it was pretty cool. The context was that if you wanted information about Zs, go to the forum.
  15. As I write this, I'm watching a condensed "special" 1 hour broadcast of the August 18-20, 2016 Mecum Auctions Monterrey 2016. There was a red '71 240Z (had the louvered rear hatch) that just rolled across the stage, and while the auction for it was progressing, two of the broadcast crew were more or less bickering about it being an automatic and therefore didn't fetch a very high price (I think it went for around $10K; looked really sharp, though). Anyway, as the hammer came down, one of them gave a shout-out to the Classic Zcar Forums as the place to go for everything about Zs. Kinda cool,
