    Where is the members list?

    I've noticed recently a bunch of site features are gone, like the 'like' button, but now I've just noticed that the members list is gone? Why? I'm trying to find some content, and I know who it's by, but I can't remember the exact username, and I can't search the member's list to find the person. Where did it go?
  2. 73 Zs have slightly different 2.5mph crash bumpers. Bumpers might be the same 70-72, although the bumper from my '72 Z isn't quite the same as the early '71 bumper I have, but there could be other reasons for that.

    My 240 rb26 build

    That thing rips!
  4. I would think a good shop could fix that. I wouldn't scrap it.

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    Yeah, a good respray will make it look a lot nicer, of course, it's just that you'd be selling to a slightly different market than a respray in the original color, and likely for a little less money as well. But no doubt it'll make the car a lot nicer, and an OE color will be better than an aftermarket color.

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    I'll offer you another option, since you seem to be interested in the car's value as a collector - have the car painted in the original color, and then have the car vinyl wrapped in the color of your choice. And, since it's just a wrap that you can peel off whenever, you can wrap it whatever color you like. As a bonus, the wrap will also serve to protect the paint underneath. Since you're doing an engine-in respray, meaning the car is clearly not doing a complete color change (inside, outside, everywhere), this paint job isn't going to help the value of the car in that regard, and a collector who wants an original car will have to have the car repainted anyway.

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    What's the original color? That's what I would go with. If you're going to repaint it a different color, and want to maintain the car's value to a collector, you'll need to do a complete color change. These cars never had a build sheet or anything, so as long as the color is correct for the year, and done properly, no one would ever know that the color was changed. Personally, I think 904 white would sell better than 113 green metallic. Not really a fan of 113. I think you'll get better answers to a question like this on classiczcars.com.
  8. CZCC = classiczcars.com Good on ya for sticking with an L series. Too many people ditch them for something else because they assume it's a bad motor because it's old. Or that they have to have 600hp to have fun with the car. Foolish. What about doing a stock rebuild yourself on the L24, and getting an L28 to send out for a performance build? That way you can stow away the stock, matching numbers L24 in case you, or another owner, ever decide to put the car back to bone stock original.
  9. One thing you need to keep in mind that at a mile in elevation, your 240hp is going to be closer to 300 at sea level. My understanding is that 250hp isn't really a high strung motor (by my standard of high strung), or particularly difficult to achieve, especially today.

    Wanted: 240z Rear Suspension Turrets

    Well, I can't help you unfortunately, but I have to wonder what on earth is wrong with your car that you need those!

    VD740 crankshaft

    You sure that's a D? I think that says V07. FYI, the diesel cranks are referred to as V07, not VD07. Compare to pics here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Nissan-Datsun-LD28-Maxima-Diesel-Crankshaft-240z-260z-280z-280zx-2-2-V07-/301731011455

    Search for them on here, and you'll see that they have a terrible reputation.
  13. What is that? An old Citroen?

    V10 240Z build on YouTube

    Did this guy just buy ANOTHER 240Z to ruin? I didn't watch the video because I know it's going to annoy me, I just saw it in the sidebar. This guy is a moron, and now he's really starting to piss me off.
