  1. Hi! I have no idea what I’m doing…

    Here are some pictures I snapped this morning. I wasn't really sure what to look for when I bought it but it seemed clean. The engine compartment wasn't covered in oil and the floor boards weren't rusted through so I figured I was ahead of the game. The car will live in the garage but it is a little tight for space. I was been toying with the idea of getting one of those two post car lifts. Not sure if I have the width though. Anyway, let me know what you think. The car runs surprisingly well. It will almost be a shame to pull the engine out. Not sure if its the original engine though... Link to Album https://1drv.ms/a/s!Aq2pF04rkrhcgukf7QjxEsfHBmRtiw

    HA! Friend me now for super savings on stock parts 2 years from now (or however long it takes a typical wife to get fedup with stupid ideas)
  3. Hi! I have no idea what I’m doing…

    I will try to take some more pictures tonight. Is there anything I should show that might be of particular interest? My vision is straight forward enough. LS swap but nothing crazy power wise. Shooting for around 300-350hp. This is not a track car, this is a weekend cruiser so it needs to be drivable. Maybe LS swap and drivable aren't a thing? I want it to be clean and modernized as much as possible. Fuel injection, updated suspension, brakes, interior and so on. Hell, I might even do push button start. I'm not looking to win any shows, but I wouldn't mind it looking show ready. Here are some of my "inspiration cars"
  4. So it has always been my dream to take an old car and fix it up all pretty like. I fell in love with the 240 years ago and always thought it would make a cool project car. After years of playing with the idea, I finally started getting serious a few months ago. Fast forward to today, I am now the proud owner of a moderately clean 1972 Datsun 240z. Here’s where it gets interesting. I have no clue what I’m doing. Seriously, I am 38 years old and the most advanced automotive work I have ever done up to this point was replacing brake-pads or installing an aftermarket exhaust. I have absolutely no business attempting to restore a car but here we are. The good news is, I know what I want my car to be and I am ready to learn how to get there. I have no timeline or budget so if I’m here for the next 8 years (looking at you “seattlejester”) than so be it. I am surrounded by car guys who have a lot of knowledge and I also have many useful resources at my disposal such as a metal fabrication and paint shop. The bad news is, I want to do a majority of the work myself. After reading this forum for the last couple days to try and figure out where to start, it dawned on me that I don’t even own a metric wrench set. So ya, if nothing else I should provide entertainment for everyone here. Wish me luck!
