Hi Z-Lovers! I like to share the story from my 240Z, which I bought 4 years ago in Bend, Oregon. This forum with the huge knowledge helped me several times, so thank you all and I hope somebody will find usefull informations here in this topic. A friend do own a Rebello 3.1 240z, this is why I felt in love with the Datsuns. In Europe, nobody drives a 240z, so it's really a rare car for us. One year ago I moved from Lucerne to Basel, Switzerland and I'm 30 years old. I hope you will enjoy this topic. First of all here are some Pics, when I bought the car. I bought the car via Skype and never saw the car in real life. A really friendly shipping company and some local Z enthusiasts helped me to get the car from Bend, OR to Switzerland. The car was shipped from Houston, TX directly to Bremerhafen, Germany. From there with a truck to Zurich, where I saw it for the first time in real. Arrived in Bremerhafen like this: It took 8 months to ship the car, until it finally arrived in Switzerland. Of course I was disappointed, because everything was "well" used. Unfortunately the headlights, hazard switch, stoplights and turnsignal didn't work when I took it for the first drive. After some research, I learned that these are the most common problems... so the story began. After I solved the first electrical Problems, I got really excited. Only had to swap the speedo vom MPH to KMH and change the headlights and turnsignals to EU-spec. Finally I can drive it! Then I bought the first upgrades: Rota Shakotan 15x9 ET0 with Fulda 205 tyres, bought from driftworks.com Really nice complete stainless steel exhaust System from Sean Dezart. New bumpers needed, for a better JDM look: I realised, that the car sits way too high, so I installed new shocks and springs, like all do. Then it looked like this... getting better and better!
