Lol, I had a feeling you guys swapped around at shops like Nath always does..  We might have to drop in Repco in Fyshwick on the way through to see how much they can do the master cyl for.

Spotted a red 24/60z driving past my street in Monash, had front spoiler, gold hotwires, looked really good, I pulled out in front of it cos the missus was in a hurry to get to work, I wanted to stop and have a look. :D

hey spottered a white 280 on yamba/erinadale drive heading south at 18:25 tuesday 17. i would usually say it was a young driver due to the lane swapping but i have been proven wrong before. It came past the bus i was in. haha i get my licence back on monday woo woo woo.

Am doing my forklift course at CIT in Fyshwick atm, turns out one of the panel beating instructors has a 240/260Z 2 seater there that he owns and gets his apprentices to work on, was looking nice and straight, though bare.  Gonna try and meet him in the next couple of days.

you know, spotting yourself doing something defeats the purpose of a spotto thread.

 

May as well rename it to 'bragging thread'

Yeah, sorry, I meant Queanbeyan.  The guy was steve, was heavily into his pulsar GTiRs at one stage?

 

I went out to have a look at that one - I think Steve said he was getting ready to move to Queensland - but in the end figured it was a bit too much work to get it runnign as a working car.

 

Although I'm just glad someone has decided to resurrect it rather than let it die.

yeah I think thats right. The worst of it is the bonnet. The whole interior has been ripped out and is looking neet underneath. so appart from a few missing parts and stuff its not a bad car. ATM. See how it pans out. Not much work getting done to the old girl because I ended up making a driveshaft myself for the pulsar. seems to work ok but still small bits getting done here and there.
