  1. Part 4: I stumbled across Will's Blog with a picture of a very familiar car that made me want to get in touch with the owner of it, I later found out it was Will and we talked about the car for a bit. Later on I was looking a some 260z ad's on CL(craigslist) and found a nice green Z that was a solid base for a major overhaul, which is all I was interested in, but the car was also listed with a spare motor which made it even more of a deal. I sent the link to will for his opinion and he told me about his buddy Clive (EvilC) and how it was his car. So then I talked to Clive first over email but then over Facebook about his lean mean green hulk 260z and went to check out the car with my brother and two friends I liked the car and decided to buy her. I left a down deposit until I sold my 280z 2+2, later on selling the car to some guy who lived in queens and got the money to pay the rest of the Z off and went to get my current Z project!
  2. Part 3: I Roughly looked over the car drove it around and bought it from the middle man who Will had sold it to. When i brought the car home I simply loved how much of a hoot it was to be in and just drive around. I later found the car to be structurally unsafe as rust had eaten away at the frame (Z cancer ) So I listed her for sale for the time being. Later on while looking for roof racks for the Z (Yes, I would actually use them, not for form but for function.)
  3. Part 2: I later on wanted a Z car of my own after my uncle sold his and eventually found one locally for about half a grand, It was a beat up 1980 280zx but it ran, drove, and a majority of the electronics worked so I liked her for the time being. I later sold her (to a good home) because the numbers of repair costs kept adding up and it just wasn't a car I could maintain on my budget. After that I was looking for another even earlier Z and found a really nice one, a 1977 280z 2+2 (which as it happens used to belong to Zero or Will Watts) I went to look at the car liked it because the interior was well above average.
  4. Story isn't properly being posted for some reason so i'm separating it into installments. Part 1: Hey guys (and the rare gals) the name's Marvin Z. While i'm not particularly new to the forums or the Z line of cars I am however new to posting after about half a year of lurking the build and info threads. I first started liking Z car's after noticing my uncle's 240z was a "different" kinda car that stood out in a crowd as a kid.

Had to post my story in an odd manor because I couldn't post the whole thing in one go. So please read it below!

    Hello! New Member from New York City!

    That's one beautiful 280z! Welcome to the forums!
  7. Hey all I'm at odds with what to decide on doing and need some suggestions (some advice wouldn't be bad either.) Well here's my dilemma; I have a bmw M50B25 out of a 1992 325is complete with everything except the flywheel and clutch in my garage and I wanna know what you guys think of swapping it into a Z would be like or should i just stick to swapping init the L26 with the round top SU's I got with the car? If i were to swap in the M50b25 i would want to run boost on it because stock they can handle a conservative setup of 8-12psi, but the real dilemma is that I'm kinda unsure of the swap because It's never been done before and I don't really want to open up a pandora's box of problems. People have told me that the engine is relatively simple but that's not always the case. Anyways I'd gladly appreciate any input you guys have as to this swap. Oh and the engine itself is a stand alone system so wiring shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
