I've had a few z's in the past and always fixed them up, made them run and look nice and had to eventually sell them due to random reasons. But now, I feel I've landed myself a keeper! Saw an add on Craigslist for a 71 shell and after a long wait period to hear from the seller we finally struck a deal and head out to pick it up in the middle of nowhere. To say the least, upon arrival the car had absolutely NOTHING in it. And by nothing I mean NOTHING. No mechanical, no brake or fuel lines, no interior no hatch, no windows ... heck, the owner had to Wire the suspension and instead of bolts ran steel wires in between holes (spindle, control arms, etc) just to get it in all fours, which made a huge of a difference when it came to load on to flat bed. While almost no bolts were even provided, To my surprise, the owner had a fair amount of the original parts in a small trailer ready to piece together and threw everything in for free!. The original hatch had miraculously somehow flown off when he previously transported the car home and thus far car's still hatch less. The following day while making a list of the missing parts and further inspection I came to realize the car is actually a 7/1970 car! ^O_O^ After settling down for a few days I found out the car was owned by a member here and got some cool pics and info about the cars history. Found that while the car was very rust free it's definitely had its fun and abuse at the track. Regardless, I got the empty shell for a good price and a positive open mind with hopes of giving this girl new life and a new future far far away from either junkyard and or smasher. I'll be posting some pics of my lady soon. For now, for sure I know I'll be running a 2JZ-GTE power plant & 6speed supra Trans with Z31 finned clsd/CV rear end. Pending the sale of my IS300 to fund the project. For now, let the parts search begin!
Thinking of getting spare set to save my Wats for shows and meets only. Have anyone used these Holeshot or other TrakLites? Relatively lightweight, any quality issues? Seems reasonable for the set. They do have JWL, VIA ratings. http://www.ebay.com/itm/131367302647?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Just a heads up for some of you guys out there looking for some new wheel options. At SEMA SSR will debut the return of the Formula Mesh and Reverse Mesh wheel. As far as I know it is being released in a 19" and 16" size The 16"s will go all the way up to 10.5"-11" wide As far as options go they will receive the same treatment as other 3 piece wheels they carry so there is a lot of range of disk types, offsets, and lip sizes I will post more as soon as I get home, I forgot to bring all the info to work today. I would say this is a win for the Japanese Classic community as it gives us another option for flared or aggressively fitted Z's
Does anyone have good pictures of MSA Classic and/or Type 1 airdam? I've been wondering around the interwebz and searches but can't seem to come across good ones... Also it doesnt necessary have to be MSA ones, as long as the airdam can flow with the body on its own without side skirts and still in production. thanks.
