good to be back
« on: May 11, 2012, 04:28:09 PM »
hey guys,
    im a new member here, having just gotten out of 1200's.
ive owned a couple of 2 seater 260z's before , one with a stock engine, the other with an rb20.
im just about to pick up my latest zed next week, a 240z this time.
found it under a car cover in a dudes yard, looking sad and unwanted. after numerous phone calls and a note in the letterbox(i didnt knock on the door due to the dangerous dog sign out the front) i finally gotin contact with the guy and after a week of deliberation on his part he reluctantly decided to sell it to me.
paints a bit shabby a-la home job style, and has a few minor rust spots, and its also been half disassembled, but its all there.
he is putting carby kits through it this weekend and assures me its a runner. it was registered until a year ago and has matching engine numbers.
only molested thing is its had a manual conversion.
anyhoo, just thought id intro myself and look forward to be zedding again..

steve

Welcome Steve.
Sometimes it's hard to tell someone they have to sell their car to you. Even though they have it sitting there doing nothing.
We're expecting pics once you pick it up!  ;)
