Would have thought the legacy boys would be back in action by now? Anyone know if they are rebuilding the car or have they given up on it after their crash?

The rear end looks 260z, the bumper bolt holes and exhaust cut out.

 

Looks like they're off to a good start

I pretty sure but i may be wrong but the car was originally a 240z shell but a few years back he had a stack and wrecked the rear end so he grafted on the back section of a 260z that he had sitting around on to the front of the 240z. Don't know exactly where the 260z section starts but i think its from the rear of the floor section back is all 260z.

Correct - it was Targa high country a few years back & I think the rear strut towers were ok so it was a graft from there to the back (explains the holes)

At the time of that "off" Jon was running one of the kaaz diff centres, once it got very sideways, it simply opened up, and he lost full drive.
It needed from rear towers back, the bit that was grafted on, got a severe ligthening procedure
The LED lamp assy's are very light, and the wiring in the car is the smallest guage pissible, as LED's require very little amps.
Car meets minimum weight requirements.
Just like the quick Gp S circuit cars, 960-980 kg, in 260Z/280Z.

Jon doesn't mind the wet, its the others that do!
