New ZCar Owner - 250 GTO Replica
Posted 12 April 2015 - 09:49 PM
Am from the eastern suburbs and was recently introduced to this forum by a fellow member as I wanted to get to know like minded Z car owners. Purchased the car from a family member who left it in a basement garage in the city for few years. Cleaned it up, got it repaired at a workshop, and registered it few months back. This is my first experience with a Z and it's been a great car to drive.

This car was spotted, and mentioned on another car forum, with much comment about how it had been left unused for quite some time. ( P.F.)
One of the members of that forum went to the trouble of trying to locate the then wmer.

Glad to see you signed up!
I hope you really enjoy the car and the forum. There are a few zeds around the Blackburn area, hope to see your car on the road soon.
(Told you there would be interest in your car!!!)

When I first got the car it looked like someone tried to jack it. Ignition wiring was all over and parts were missing. Body is still in good condition with a slight crack at driver side. Took two tow trucks to get it out of the city car park on Lonsdale St. Only problem left now is the worn bushings, am considering getting them thru eBay.
Would be great to meet with other Z owners and cruise around. I could definitely learn more on the car as well. Any meetup's soon?

1.going to Noosa hillclimb in 2002 an hearing them scream up the road
2. Seeing a modified 240z (spirit garage) go around a race track.
3. Seeing one used in 1st episode of criminal minds in 2005
4. Falling in love with the 250 gto when I was 10.
Love the replica

Yup that's the car previously. Had few bits stolen, driver door damaged as forced open, and ignition wiring ripped up as someone tried to jack it. Took two tow trucks to get it out but all worth it.
