  1. So, sadly I’ve come to the realization that one of my babies has gotta go. With failing health I know I’ll never have the abilities for doing the necessary labor behind completing this 71 240Z. Keep in mind I’m talking strictly about a body shell & not a complete car. The bad, front frame rails had rust so they where removed at the fire wall to the radiator support. The good, everything else is truly rust free & verifiable because it’s a body shell. Front & rear fenders, rockers, roof, hatch, hatch well, tail light area, doors, & completely solid floors front - back. I rescued it from Texas 20 years ago & stored indoors the entire time. I’ll be posting a few photos shortly. But really having a difficult time coming up with what it’s worth. Suggestion?
  2. So, I may not know many of you on here today. But I'm one of the old farts that's been playing around here since 2001. OMG YES 2001..... One of the main reason I'm back is because the candle has been lit once again & I will be making progress on my 73 in the near future. BUT, before that happens I need to grow that war chest a bit more. With that said tonight I moved my 72 from 20 years of storage into my shop & soon she will be on the market as a rolling shell freshly shot in sealer inside out. The delay is because we are doing the front frame rails so it can be called rust free gem that it is. Anyway, I should be posting some updates & photos soon. BTW, is there am app or phone friendly version for this site now? Stay safe all!
  3. Hi there Jeff got a question for you I'm in deep research trying to figure out what this z is that I have in my garage been in my family since I believe 1990 my father had it built by a guy in California they call it a zisizit. It is definitely custom chromed motor and trans full roll cage raceing seats all custom gauges setup for nitro as well. What I'm looking for is info on where it came from or the original builder as I want to sell it soon but have no dollar amount to refrence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  4. You dont know untill you ask or look. I wouldnt think its alot of car for $250. But at the same time this car is out on the edge of no salt land. So whos ta say what the underside looks like. Plus no telling if the windows are gone. They may just be broken with a BB hole in the glass.
  5. Got my pin on the map now. If anyone is doing a RT66 drive across the states drop in and say hi. Our shop is on Main ST. here in Miami OK at about the halfway point of the RT66 drive.
  6. I feel your pain. I think a few of us have been in your shoes and know what it's like when you find ALOT more rust damage then you had thought. I was looking at the postings today and saw one member that had a 280Z with the 240Z bumpers and it got me thinking about your headache. If your only looking for a fun driver here is a 260Z that I found on craigs list for $250 OBO. http://http://joplin.craigslist.org/cto/1089221078.html Just a thought........ I know the guys that are into the pure resto cars will be upset that I say it. But you could use your 240 parts on that 260 and get a fun little driver outa the deal.
  7. I may get some slack for saying this....... But here it gose...... I have found that one of the best and lasting things for rattle can and non gloss matt black is the paint they sell for BBQ grills. It's made for a very high heat and fights rust. Plus it's one of the few matt paints that I have found that wont gloss or shine when you scrub on it. Also, it dosnt chalk up over time unlike other matt blacks on the market. Just what I have found....
  8. I had a 928sc for about a year and know what your saying. But, your talking about Porsche guys that that feel the only true porsche around has a rear engine. I never got along with their thoughts on that one eather. Hell, I could be doing 65 mph and slip my 928 into third knock the back tires loose and keep um that way if I wanted. But, your on with the Z cars. For most of the zed heads around a Z car is a z car. It's just that easy. Welcome too our world of snob free fun!!!!! Enjoy the ride and congrats on the find.
  9. You got it. I will take the pics tomorrow and try and get them up around lunch. But if I dont get free at lunch they will be up about this time tomorrow.
  10. , its 4 colors that it had now. It was green from the start. Then it was done very well in red. After that the PO's kid did a fast and nasty job of blue. Then I didnt think I was going too have the funds for good paint any time soon so I shot it flat black. Then about a week ago I made a deal on over $1000.00 worth of color change deep blue-green paint and blue-green pearl clear coat. So now I have about another two or three weeks of body work before it gets the final paint. Thank you, but I do have alot of real time in it at this point. It's been 12-15 hour days working on her. So with hours like that day after day they add up fast. I have been on a temp layoff from work so I have had nothing but shop time on my hands. That was another reason I didnt think I would have the funds for the paint.
  11. Sorry, it's all I have on this computer tonight. But I can take some better photos tomorrow and get them up about the same time tomorrow.
  12. Well, I have been spending alot of time on the Z over the last few days. I have found that most of the time when you start pulling a Z down you find ALOT more work or damage then you may have thought you had at first. I am VERY VERY happy too report that is not the case here!!! Nothing more then surface rust. No holes or rot going from the inside out. She is just as solid as I had thought it was. I am very pleased that I did take it down this far. Like I said it has some surface rust and I know it would have grown into some real damage had I not caught it at this point. So, now I am getting the sandblaster out tomorrow and going over the everything that I can from the firewall forward. Then rust proofing before paint. I have been doing ALOT of body filler work on the little dents here and there. The biggest headache so far has been the roof. After blocking it out it looked like someone had held a dance on the roof of this poor car. Just dent after dent that wouldnt pop out. Lets just say I have over 2 days work on the roof alone and still not done yet :tapemouth But I am SO happy that I have no body rust anywhere!!!! Just little dents and dings here and there. Plus I am going with the doors and front fenders from my 73. So they where ready for paint from the word go. The only headache thats has caused is now I had to fill the rear side marker lights because I had it done on my 73 front fenders. I just didnt think it would look good with only the rear markers. Anyway, thats the update for now and I will get some pics up once I am getting her back togather and in primer.
  13. I was putting in some late hours at the shop tonight helping a friend with his motorcycle. A few more of the guys had shown up and we started BSing about paint. Well one of my friends was talking about a custom color that he had mixed up awhile back. It's a metal flake pearl thats a color shifting paint. the tone of it is dark blue in the can but shifts into greens aswell as purple once it's painted. He started talking about it and said " well hold on I have it over here in the paint booth." So he comes back and has a full gallon of the paint and matching clear. He also had a bottle of HEAVY electric blue pearl for mixing in the clear. Now, after some dealing I own all of it!!!!! He paid over $500.00 for what he gave me and you can see why once you open the can and see just how cool this color is. No, it's not the odd paint that changes every color under the sun. This stuff stays in the blue and green shades but dose change into near every shade of blue and green you could think of. Then toss that pearl over the top and OMG I think I may paint one of my spare parts tomorrow so I can show what it's gona end up looking like. I cant wait!!!! Here I thought I was gona be stuck in flat black for the year because I just didnt have the money for what I wanted. Now I have a paint color I could only dream of getting;) I am now going to be spending ALOT of my free time on sanding and body work for the next week or so. Then I can shoot her and enjoy :classic: I cant wait!!!!!!!!! I will do my best on getting a pic of the color tomorrow.
  14. Come on people!!!! My guess is that was a reply by a guy that was running out the door for work. Atleast he is working on getting another Z back on the road. I dont see the point in picking on a fellow zed head...... IMO we are a rare breed of car nut's that should stick togather. Not flame each other over dumb little crap like this:finger: I think we all got the point of what he was asking. Now, if he was asking about some dumb s!&t like how can I make my 240Z a 1000HP AWD car in a week. Then game on IMO :stupid: But thats not the case. I know this is not my place nor do I feel I have ANY power here what so ever. But I also dont mind standing and saying whats on my mind. I feel one of the main reasons this site is so good is because of how it's members handle things and keep away from the flame game. :tapemouth I just think we should stick togather and make everyone feel welcome here at the best Z car site on the net. Sorry if I upset anyone by saying this......... I just had too get that off my chest. With that said I hope EVERYONE has a wonderful Friday!!!!!
