Here is my 1980 ZX last summer after rebuilding the suspension. I bought it from the original owner, bone stock with original paint, perfect black interior, etc. It's an odd one as it is a base model with no power options, but has A/C. Currently it has no drive train and is getting a turbo motor swap. I've had many 280zx turbo's, but this car is by far my favorite and is a keeper.

82 n/a t-tops black GL package.

i got it from a friend of my older sister. her friend drove the tow truck for a local dealership and they got it from a drunk driver. it sat for three years before i got it. new battery and it started right up. i live in the desert so no rust. paid $400 for it and another $200 to the guy for him to get me a clean title. and he through in the brick holding the passanger seat in place for free!

Got it from original owner. guy took good care of it in really nice shape. found an 83 turbo with blown headgasket for parts car. put the turbo power plant in when my wife gives me some time off from fixing the new house we just bought. Nothing fancy at the moment just cold air intake.

I use generic coils the are in the 300 range and stiff as hell!

On the 40 tires and no rubber in the front strut assembly to be found all i can say from a little test ride ..

it is blood pissing stiff!

Given the struts are on their heaviest setting, also i use msa sway bars and adjustable end links ( one poly rubber in there)

I owned an 80 280zx back in 82-84. Sold it when the family started arriving. Got the Z bug again in 2001 and bought my current 81 280zxt. Same silver over blue color as my first, but this one has t-tops and its a turbo!! I've slowly modified her from auto to 5-speed swap the first year to an intercooler last summer. Now I need to address the rust issues.

is the 305 a smaller v-8? and well anyways do u like the motor? i been thinkin of goin with a 350...

 

smaller displacement but the same external dimensions as a 350. I haven't got to drive the car too much, but it seems to have a fair amount of bottom end torque.
