Would the 73's still be available ?
The guy I'm trying to import stuff from is slow moving, he's up in the air as to what he wants to sell and keep. I haven't been pushing it too hard because I have had tax returns, bills to sort etc.. I have got a couple of roof turrets on their way and importing a bonnet etc.. I already imported 1 set of wheels (keeping for myself at the moment) and a rear 1/4 panel to get familiar with the process and costs etc..
I've been in touch with a couple of other folks stateside with panels etc.. but always difficult when you haven't met them in person. Their communication sort of drops off. I find eBay good because sellers are willing to ship within the US relatively easily and they have confidence in eBay ratings etc.. but often I'm not dealing with a bulk shipment so it's 1 off items here and there.
I think a couple have expressed interest in the 73 wheels, but I can try find more. A guy in LA has a bunch also, but they tend to be spare wheels out of parts cars so hard to find a set of 73's with the same month stamp, if that's a concern? I guess it's a bit like rivet counting at that stage..
Side note: My first 73 240z had all it's Topy's on it when I went to see it (no hubcaps fitted as 1 had fallen off and the owner didn't want to lose them so he removed them all and put them aside) and I just keep thinking how much I regret not taking them years ago! Still kills me inside...
