I got my Z bug back. Been looking. Not much to pick from in Mississippi.  Picked up a 280ZX Turbo for a powerplant last Saturday. Found this hulk of a 75 today. She is in really bad shape, but she is mine. Edit: Changed to build thread per suggestion.

Congrats,  yeah she's a little rough but that just means you get to spend more time fixing it up, don't throw away that Auto transmission, the bell is worth something to guys installing the 350z 6 spd.

Are you going to start a build thread?

 Thank you for the tip on the bell housing, however the transmission is long gone.  Also thank you for the idea on the build thread,  I haven't done Internet forums since I built my 72 Chevy pick up over a decade ago.  I think a build thread is an excellent idea!  I'm going to concentrate on the turbo for now.  I am hoping before I am done with that a better chassis will pop up that I can afford.  In the meantime I will give her a good wash and see what she looks like.

Lol. It's been in Mississippi humidity parked under an oak tree. The good: The outside isn't so bad. Interior fairly complete. All glass is good but windscreen. Front rails look ok. Kinda like the wheels, I'll bead em and hope they turn out. The bad:  The pans are shot as well as the supports. Hood is rusted up pretty good, normal rear hatch rust on body, valance can be seen through. I'll hafta bond the title if I want to put it on the road. Long story short: girlfriend will probably be a parts car.
