1980 bargain buy project...

Recommended Posts

So I recently picked up a fairly decent 1980 stocker for around $800 and I must say, I have fallen in love with the old girl.
 
Sure, she is a bit rough around the edges with a super dodgy RHS fender rust repair, a RHS headlight bucket that looks like it was fixed by a monkey and some pretty gnarly hail damage on the bonnet... man is she just a hoot to drive around town!
 
I am first and foremost a 510 guy through and through, but I have always wanted an S30 Z for as long as I can remember, but with my luck they are rarer than chickens teeth over here! So naturally, the next best thing would be a S130 Coupe, but even they are scarce here (I have only ever seen one, and its rusting away in some old ladies yard) so all I really had to buy is an S130 2+2... I will be honest I was never a fan of the 2+2 model, but after the impulse buy of this here old girl,  having given her some loving and driving her home on a sweet summers day, I can all but say I am hooked on the Z!! :wub:
 
I am definitely looking forward to fixing her up the way she should be to get her looking tip top again.

 

I have a few plans like wheels and tires and naturally a nice exhaust system, but I want to first get all the little odd fixes out the way so that I can enjoy the car without having to worry about things breaking!

Cheers for now,
