Matt was the motor built here in WA? If so I am guessing it was Steve Thomas built if back then.

Yes. SST Automotive was his business in East Vic Park Perth. No idea if he is still around or who took over from him. At the time he was fitting anything Nissan to a Z. I do remember an Infiniti V8 powered Z in his workshop. At the time I think his car had a Rb26DETT in it and held some record at the Wanneroo Track

Yes the RB26 240z is mine. You would have seen it on a rotisserie at SST back in the day

G'Day Matt100. Are you planning to have either of them back on the road in the near future? Always good to see another zed on the road in Perth.

Good question. The '73 was not driven at all in 98 because of business commitments. Contemplating what to do with it mechanically when wife came in to say that we were expecting triplets (no joke) Quickly realised 2 seat sports car was not going to be of much use so left parked. Those boys are now nearly 19 so now i have some time. Chassis 100, I really dont know what I'm doing as it will require a lot more time. Hopefully get the "73 one looked at soon by me and one keen son

Good to hear one of the boys is interested. Best hope they don't want one each because that could get very expensive for you.

I keep thinking we should change this thread to any HS30 bingo. :) Since I've started recording all HS30's I can find anyway.

 

RE: #616 I have details about #614 and #618 which had L24-031415 but I don't know what colours they were. I must have got the info off the W.A Z Cars registrar because I have no photos of either car.

 

It appears #615 was 903 Blue, which is quite a rare colour on HS30's

Looks fantastic!

For me the chrome and stainless highlight the body lines. That's the only thing I'd change on it

I'd change the seats, the wheels, the accuracy of the livery etc.. but yes I always do like the works style rally cars..I'd call this more of a tribute than a replica.

Annoying to see this car go overseas, would have been nice to see it offered to Aussies first, someone here would have given him what he wanted, I have bought two Z's from this guy, have always wanted to buy this car, so was surprised to see it sold.
