thank you much. i hope to have it back and driving in 2 months. just intime to drive it a couple times then tuck it away for the winter. im sure you might have noticed the gas cap beeing a fellow s130 owner. there was also engine bay smoothing out, shaved blinkers front bumper for blinkers built into headlights, some other mods and a yet to be reveled new design of tail lights.20180718_232442.thumb.jpg.5aa5e084ce9ea6ace1ac4cf3084c2eaa.jpg

Wow!!! Very cool. It's fun to have a family tie to a car...that's how mine is too...how much more you have to go to fire it up? Kinda wish I kept my motor swap in the nissan family. Just felt it was gonna be cheaper to do a LS motor. Not sure that is true when all is said and done. Looks awsome!!!

Thanks man!! Your car is coming out amazing!! I don't have much left just to wire in a few things and the flying leads from the wiring specialties harness, a driveshaft. And a few more little things. Just more time and money lol

Bought my 81zxt in September as a Parts car for my 240z.

as luck would happen to have it I found the original owners family members and they said they had a briefcase full of documents on the car and said I could keep them.

now my son is the proud owner of it (as long as he keeps his grades up and stays out of trouble)

hes 7 and can’t wait till he can drive for the time being I think I’m going to put my 240z project on hold till I get his just right.

Hello, folks! Great looking Zs in here, wow!!! Anyway, I'm Luke. I bought this black 1982 from a family friend when I was in high school, mid 2000s. It was all stock. It's an NA 5 speed with some work done. It's been a great car. This is one of my first posts, but I've spent hours and hours over the past decade or so combing through here quietly getting information that I need. I appreciate this forum and the members. Definitely super helpful. I'm in the process of chasing down some wiring demons at the moment, so I'll be poking around in here.

Hey, thanks! Man, I hope so. So tired of jumping through hoops smogging an almost 40 year old car with an engine designed in the 60s. That gets driven like 5K miles a year. Waste of time, really. When I got the car, it was to be exempt in 2012. Arnold screwed the pooch on that one. I'm praying this goes through.

Hello everyone! I figure this would be as good a place as any to make my first post and introduce myself! Just yesterday I managed to pickup this little guy... I'm not the biggest fan of the color but that can easily be changed. The guy I bought it from said he found it in a barn and that it had been sitting for about 10years. He bought it roughly 10months ago and turned it into what it is now. He put it at about 65% complete which isn't far off. On startup it sounds mechanically fine, at least there isn't any crazy knocking or anything like that. The digital dash works with no issue but wiring for the headlights needs some work. Sadly, the dash has the famous crack down the middle but it isn't huge and should be repairable. Overall I have to say I'm pretty damn happy with car. 

 

As far as future plans, other than a paint job, I'm still now sure what direction I want to go... But once I decide I'll do my best to document everything I do. I look forward to talking with everyone and sharing my story.
