  1. Round 2- 1976 280Z

    Congratulations on all the new comers to the family. Your purchase story is very close to my experience when getting my first Z and then almost immediately my second Z. keep posting
  2. 240Z - Snailed style

    Suspension looks great. Not a fan of the engine choice. keep posting i hope it finally gets finished
  3. My new 260Z

    Welcome back enjoyed reading this post
  4. New Owner 1974 260z

    I'm sorry but you started your first sentence with "i've always liked the classic look of the Z". Well you bought a highly modified almost porsche like Z. Nice vehicle but far from classic. It does look like a very nice condition vehicle so congrats and welcome
  5. congrats on the purchase and good luck. I too also just purchased my 1977 280z as far as i have gotten is taking the bumpers off. Hope you get further then me
  6. i had first dibs on a 83 280zx in texas a week ago whole car for $350 priced out it would cost me $1000 to $1500 to get it home to New York i ended up passing on it. I'm still not 100% what engine route i'm going.
  7. Which bodykit is this?

    looks great. what set up is this
  8. Another Dash Restoration

    looks awesome can't wait to do mine in the summer, so glad the owner before me gave me the original dash so i can remove the plastic one.
  9. 280z Body Kit

    get rid of the real bumper and rear wing and newer wheels to fit the wheel wells better maybe lower vehicle. i really can't believe they kept the rear bumper on. This was the cool look for late 70's early 80's
  10. New 280z owner with a question

    i drove down to Atlanta to pick up the car. It has Alabama plates on it and was last on the road in 2014. The vehicle has been painted i have no idea when. I was looking to obviously do some large flares and lower the vehicle. I would be doing a engine swap either a L28ET or a Nissan RB. i'm not in a hurry to do this project, I'm 40 years old and plan on this being my last project the one that stays in my garage til i pass. It took me 10 years to pull the trigger on the Z since my other option was the the FD RX7. I went with the Z cause it was a lower starting price than any RX7 i have seen and i felt it also took care of my 70's classic car that i was tossed up on in and out of that 10 year span. (i flirted with 70-74 camaro and firebird). I had own a 73 Firebird when i was 18 and if I had kept that like i should we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. But i do love the japanese cars. i was in high school during the great japan car years of 90-94. Anyway i was looking at two Z cars at the time of purchase one a 72 240z that had been stripped down to no interior floor boards cut out ready for new ones to be welded in this is the one i wanted it was also less money and 80 miles from me the guy didn't respond to my emails and text. so the 77 280z guy responded right away and planned to go see it the next weekend once i got there i just wanted the car so i over looked my feelings cutting it up and brought it home obviously paid more for it then the 72. once i had it home didn't the guy with the 72 text me to tell me his other deal fell through so for the hell of it i went and looked at it. i wanted to buy it so bad i couldn't get the wife to buy into my vision cause i just picked one up that was complete and why have two sitting in the garage. basically she didn't understand and i missed out on the vehicle i didn't mind cutting up it was most of the way there already. so i'm thinking i need to keep a eye out for a different Z

    Nice SX and nice photography
  12. Hi guys I recently bought a 1977 280z after getting it home and looking it over more I'm starting to think I shouldn't cut this car out like my vision requires. So basically should I look for a different z in worst shape and not violate this one or should I go ahead and cut wheel wells out. I put three pictures of how it sits currently and one picture of what I envision it to be like. Please any feedback is welcomed thanks guys.
  13. 72 240Z, need opinions

    Jump on it. I just missed out on a 73 240z for $1500 no floor boards and rails and i thought that was a steal. i ended up with my first Z a 1977 280Z for $3000 obviously alot better shape but i still would have liked the 73 as well
