Hi just wanted to say hi to everyone, and get a few posts up. I have just got the z bug and recently purchased my first 260z. I have a suggestion, I'd love to see a engine number resource. If I could search for L series engines that matches my car it would be easier to locate original blocks. Just a thought

Well pics are in gav's link. It's a goer but can't say I'm real happy with the way it is. Performance wise or look wise.dash has been sprayed orange and capped. Since it's already been bastardized, it leaves options open a little. Looks wise, I'm a real sucker for originality. I think datsun got it right the first time. One of the sexiest interiors I have seen

Thank-you dat240. Well these things can be solved with time and money. And of course the luck of finding new old stock parts with a car older then me
