but he has left me with the knowledge to do it by myself. he always wanted to restore an old car.so i made it my priority to do so when he passed away. now i got 2 other ones to do.because its my dream now.
something about Z that i actualy like. i actualy enjoy working on them as much as driving. 260z near completion and allready cant wait to start on the 240z.
good luck with the car. looking forwad to updates. reminds me where i was 3 years ago. itching to do all over again.
