  1. Selling a race car

    Looking for personal experience from those that have sold cars, mainly racecars, via the internet. Which sites have you used, eBay, Racing Junk, BAT and what were your results. Is selling a car just like selling parts on eBay or this site. Can you put too much info in your ad that might harm your sale or is more info always better. I am thinking if you leave a little info out you could generate some phone calls and then use your personal skills to help sell the car. I'm thinking of a price between 11.5 to 12.5 for my car so it is not a high end race car but one someone can buy and go right to the track and vintage race with HSR, SVRA or NASA. Tom

    Looks like 9 - Zcars, 1 - 510 and 1 - 200sx so far entered in this years The Mitty at Road Atlanta presented by HSR and Classic Motorsports. If you are in the area at the end of April come on by and cheer the Datsun racers along. We will have both of our 260's there and hoping for a great race weekend. Tom
  4. Heys guys I ordered a pair of GForce nomex race bottoms from Saferacer and they are too small for me. They were a special deal so I can't return them. They are size XL but are more like a large. I am 6'4' and 225 and I tried on one pair and the other pair has never been out of the package. My loss your gain, $45 + $5 shipping and there yours. You can even have the SAFERACER decals......

    [sharedmedia=videos:videos:218] Here's my fast lap at SVRA Sebring Spring event 2014
  6. PM sent about several parts.
  7. 240 front end

    I am looking for L&R headlight buckets(can't believe I just sold mine and now I need a set). Complete front lower valence - both corner and center pieces. Also a Bre type rear spoiler - short one. Trying to piece together a 240 C production car for HSR Group 3 & SVRA Group 8 to go along with my 260 Group 5 & Group 6 car. Tom
  8. S30 Motorsports

    Just finished SVRA Spring Classic at Sebring. I got my questions about my cars capabilites answered with the help of Greg Ira who came to co-drive my car. As I expected it was me holding the car back and with Gregs help I was able to better my fastest lap time by 8 seconds. Still more time to get just ran out of track time. I got a 1st and 2nd in class in my two races and we almost finished our first 1.5hr night enduro, fueling issue left us stranded on track but turned out to be a small issue and was able to continue with the sprint races on Sat & Sun. Coaching from an accomplished driver is a must for any racer and data acquisition is the tool to use and thanks to team mate Clark Stephens for analyzing all that info and telling me what it means. On to Road Atlanta and The Mitty......
  9. Just picked up a 11/70 240 bare chassis - has front suspension/steering rack/column/wheel & rear suspension/r180 diff - 14" steel wheels with tires - nothing else. No doors, hood, hatch, interior or any lights or wiring. 1085 lbs. I am thinking of transferring everything from my 260 race car to this chassis to trim down my bulky 2350 lbs.
  10. You could always let your car winter at S30 Motorsports and just fly down to drive it every so often. I am sure you have extra flight miles...... Clark won't mess with it too much.
  11. Decision 240z vs 280z

    Keep both. Use the 280 as your daily driver and restore 240 over time. That is you can afford to and have a place to to keep the 240. Wish I still had my 72' 240 which I got in 1979 and drove in high school.
  12. 280yz FRONT ONLY

    Roger, what are the sizes of the Keizer wheels? Tom
  13. 1990 300zx NA Value?

    Fellow Hybrid Z'ers need a little input. This is my sister-in-laws car she bought new in 1990 and drove until 2005 when she bought a new 350Z. She asked me what the value/sales price might be for this car. I usually only keep up with 1st gen cars since that is what I race. It has 142K original miles with an automatic transmission. Leather interior and carpets are in great shape,t-tops probably removed a dozen times in its lifetime with all accessories, guages, lights, a/c etc in good working order. It has been garaged kept and only used for weekend cruises since 2005. She is considering selling it or keeping it for my nephew to drive when he turns 16. What price range do you guys think this would sell for?
  14. How do all these cars make it to the Great Northwest? Don't know what's better, there or Arizona. Reproducing that competition hood buldge would go well with the 3 piece rear spoiler I got from you.
