  1. I think its 1170kg, but im not certain. Have a look on the vin plate
  2. Hmm, those figures are on the original vin plate. I believe its 130bhp (sae) at around 5800rpm (not 100 percent on the rpm). Cant recall the quoted torque figure though. Ill have a look tonight
  3. Hm, looking back i dunno where i got that from. Anyway, how much did you get for it, may i ask? Apologies for the hijack
  4. I know ive been outta this game for some time, but what happened to your c110 alfa - you sold it because it was broken or the new owner broke it? Seriously, itd be a crying shame if that car was indefinitely off the road... Who here is still driving their c110 regularly? Mine has been up on ramps since nov. last year.
  5. Hey all, Im heading to japan in early july, and was interested in catching some motorsport and history, or perhaps a combination. Im heading to Tokyo for the first week, and the Kansai region for the remaining three and a half. I was particularily keen to have a look at the nismo museum and any other worthwhile motorsport/historical events. Any reccomendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, motorsport related or not :rambo: Tom
  6. This cars been for sale for some time. Could it be a feasible option for someone interested from the states?
  7. Damn Lachlan... I never thought it would come to this, i think your car has inspired every one of the c110 owners on this forum. I just couldnt bear to think what will happen to it if sold. Employment is fine and dandy, but at the end of the day, your job will never love you as much as the c110 has... Sell it if you must.
  8. Excellent some parts going in perth! Ill phone you shortly...
  9. Just out of interest, was this c110 (c111) known about in the usa prior to this auction. Regardless its quite a nice car, i hope it stays in the family
  10. Cheers craig, thanks for the offers guys, I live in leederville - was probably on my way home from a mates place. Not doing anything too stupid was I? It was the gawd dang gearbox in the end. I drained the diff sump first, finding nothing and still an ample quantity of oil. The gearbox gave me a nice little surprise in the form of a snapped 'C' shaped clamp - something integral i guess, as its made of a strengthened metal.The 'K'll be out of commission for a bit... Tom
  11. By the sound of the clunking and grinding going on behind me on my last journey, and the fairly large amount of play I've been experiencing in the driveline for the past six months, i belive my diff is shagged :dead: Does anyone have a spare r180 in decent condition that i could reimburse them for? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tom
  12. I cant help but feel an avalanche of loss when i hear of 'our' cars being shipped out of the country to various parts of the world. It just seems tragic, given theres very few left anyway...bloody 510 owners. By all means go ahead, but the c110 is only going to get rarer and rarer. Just my honest opinion. Tom
  13. Is there not a six cyl. wagon variant?

    New Momo prototipo. They've re-issued them recently in europe and the uk at the gentleman's price of one hundred and twenty pounds! Thats without the boss...

  16. The horse has bolted but...I think youre right craig, i was caught in the heat of the moment and theres no specific evidence it was a coupe - and I didnt ask. Maybe that will allow us to sleep a little easier. However, if indeed it wasnt a coupe, doesnt that just exemplify the demand for 'whatever c110 is available'?
  17. Hah, coincidence, ive just done this, except with a MOMO prototipo. In any case miles is correct, happy horning...!
  18. Lock up you 240k's! Today i had the unfortunate experience of "rising c110 value and desirability syndrome." I awoke this morning to find myself with an unexpected and unspecific sense of optimism, and coincidentally, id planned to make a real attack on the local classifieds paper, rising at a chirpy (for me) 8am. Within seconds of purchasing said paper i was scouring the two-thousand dollar or less section, hoping to find a bargain c110 just waiting for a good home. Suddenly my eyes became transfixed. There it was, a one owner, auto coupe for $900 ono. The answer to my early optimism now lay before me. Quickly I jumped on the telephone and contacted the owner. Not home till 4pm, and ive got two others inspecting the car then, he said. Just my bloody luck, work doesnt finish till six. Throughout my day i ponder and hope for the possibility that the car does not move. I arrive home, with baited breath and the contact number memorised, only to hear the phrase on the other end of the phone that i had been dreading all day. "Sorry mate, its gone..." Dejected, I began an inquiry into the conditions of the 'k's sale. "A couple of Afghanis were going to strip it and ship it off to the middle east." My heart sunk. Is this the outlook for the c110 in this country, I wondered...

    Aha I have the top version, however, i have not seen the bottom version before. Id really prefer for them to match, but if im stuck to find one... Investing in nos skyline badges would be the ultimate, but i think until i decide to get serious about a full restoration there's little point. Indeed, if they were ripped off :mad: :dead:

    Unfortunately, an upstanding member of my community has given me the pleasure of searching for a replacement left rear quater Datsun badge. I was wondering if anyone could spare one of these? Tom
  21. Gah just saw this also. A bit grotesque i feel, but hey, everyone has different tastes. But you can put a v8 in anything, why butcher a perfectly good c110 in the process. The buy it now price is 9k???
  22. Its really not that hard to put this sort of thing in the Z section, considering it makes up more that 75% of the forums...
  23. Aha! I think we have a winner...If this is indeed the grille im referring to then the story behind its arrival in Australia is even more interesting. Maybe it came from a 'grey' swb c110?
  24. Interesting, interesting... A couple of points though. The grille i am referring to is none of those - its the 'cleaner' belt buckle grille, i think present on the gc111 - Just looked that up...hmmmm. Ill take a picture of it tomorrow for closure on this, but i believe weve all seen this grille before, i remember seeing it here anyway... As for deanos z, yep thats it, however hes since ditched the triple webbered l28 and, as i mentioned earlier, opted for a supercharged efi l28. Not sure if he still has the old motor but apparrently it made around 250hp at the fly.
  25. Yep, indeed it is, and the grille was from the four door was was wrecking. Seeing him again tomorrow, damn hes got some nice bits - ill post a pic of the grille. The coupe is still pretty much a bare shell, but hes just about finished the rust removal/primering stage with all the bits to go on soon - hes planning a nissan V8 (VH44 or 41 i think) for the thing ! His work is all of a very high standard, with a great deal of bespoke fabrication. Should be a tasty prospect when finished - i believe he'll be the only owner of a restored 240k coupe in perth, at least the only one i know of. And just to cap it off, nestled away next to the c110 coupe was a fully restored 240z, supercharged efi l28, motec ecu and im sure a host of other tasty bits. Bit of a hijack sorry...
