My name is Mike McShane from Sacramento.

 

My dad introduced me to Z cars when he bought a new Z in 1976, 1978, and 1980. I drove several of those cars during high school and then later bought my own 240z's after college.

 

I currently have (4) 240Z's and have owned many many more. Currently drive a 71 918 Orange street / track car with a 2.8, triples, 5 speed from a 240sx, and Subi LSD. Another full cage track only car that will run a 331 Ford stroker and 5 speed. My two other Z's are both stock 72's, one orange and one blue.

 

I am retired but have part of a shop with a friend of mine who races a 70 240 BRE tribute car. He has several other cars as well, including a 240Z open track car and (2) roadster track cars. 

 

Look forward to the discussions and information with everyone.

Hello Mike - nice to make your acquaintance. Any friend of Z is a friend of mine - although as you probably know we call then 'Zeds' not Zeeeeee's'  :P .

That is quite a serious looking roll cage in the last photo! What motor (and spec) are you planning for that car?

The cage car will get a Ford small block 331(400-450 HP)  stroker and tremec 5 speed. I have a Q45 diff but not sure if I'm using it yet. Wilwood brakes all around and a body kit for 10" wheels. I already have coil over suspension for the car, just have not hung it on yet, need to get the body work done. All seams are stitch welded so that's out of the way. Still a big work in progress.

This is the look I'm going for. I already have the front wings.
