I've wanted a Z31 for awhile. I'm not sure 100% why, but the S30 are classic and the ZX are okay, but I figured I'd step up a little bit and do something different.

Anyway, she is a NY car (rust), milage kinda high, no reverse, clutch is slipping, a few oil leaks and a multitude of other misc. issues.

She does run pretty good. Starts right up, boost is great. Keeping her all stock until I learn some.

I'm into her for $1000 and a horrid ride down Hwy 27 in stop and go traffic for 95 miles to Sebring! I can't for the life of me figure why anyone would live down that way though, race track aside.

I did score a sandblasting bucket 1/2 mile before picking the car up for $5!

Looks like a good project. I always wanted a Shiro 300zx z31, have yet to find a good clean base for one though. Looks like you have some easy stuff to work with though. Is it the digital dash? Or just the normal dash?

Just normal dash fortuneately. :).

I looked at a rough SS about 2 years ago. I probably should have bought it for the $1500 he was asking but I didn't.

That is a good thing. The digital dashes I hear can be horrible and can be nightmares trying to repair/fix.

I like my digital dash....if they stop working, its 99.99% of the time just the power supply....simple re-solder and you're all set.
