  1. Hello everyone, My name is Clay and I bought a 1970 Datsun 240Z (HLS30-01121) about three years ago. My intention was to drive it on the weekends and save up some money for a full restoration. I am stationed in San Diego, California and found the car on Craigslist. After talking to the owner and inspecting the car on FaceTime, I bought a plane ticket for the next day. I took the car for a test drive and it performed well. I handed over the cash and started the 650 mile drive from Redding, California. Before I left town I stopped at a place to get the oil changed for the drive. I went down below the car and noticed that the passenger side frame rail was in bad shape. I limped the car over to a muffler shop and had them weld a support pipe from the front of the frame rail to the rear of the car (i didn't know what else to do at this point). I slowly made the trip to San Diego and got home safely. My dreams of driving this car on the weekends were shot because I did not feel comfortable driving this car with the frame rails in such sad shape. I parked the car in my garage and started it weekly. It has been in there for three years. It starts every time with no problems, it is almost asking me to drive it. It has killed me to leave it in this state for so long but I have read so many blogs about restorations that take so long that the owner looses interest. This would not be me. The time has come to start and I would like to document the progress here. Any and all comments are welcome. I would like to thank you for the inspiration that allot of you have provided for the past three years without ever knowing. I believe the car had some work done on it before. Whoever did the work left signs by not doing a very good finishing job imo.
