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.
