Spotted a beautiful red 240 driving down my street (Harcourt Hill, Gungahlin)!  I was so shocked, I thought it was rhino73z at first and I was just staring with my mouth open like an idiot.  ;D  We gave each other the peace sign and then he was off.  It had gold simmons and I think it had those clear headlight covers too.

Is there something in the pipeline there Chris?  Are your details under your picture hinting at maybe something to come?

Yo, Angelus, I was in the shop today.

here is the blow-by-blow account of the long-running battle to turn my 260z into a daily driver.  Dunno if the rust repairs will be as professional as yours, since we are basically a couple of douchebags in a shed with a welder, but the painting itself was done by a pro.

6pm today spotted nice red 240z with gold wheels on Hindmarsh drive near Weston...2nd time in a month.

Welcome Andrew (Dorifticon) and your pearl coloured 260-2seater ! I just read your 8 page write-up on Ozdat that you linked to....looks great !
What side of Canberra are you on ? I cant believe how many Canberrans are on Ozdat !
What sort of zed does Bob have (the guy that helped you in the zed rebuild) ...Its not the same Big-Bob with the R35 GTR is it ?

Hi guys
Chris, no Bob is a moderator on Ozdat, he has a CA18det-powered gazelle (silvia s12? the one with flip-up headlights).  His tag is Bob260 cos he used to have one.  Anyways, the CA18det was hand-built by the specialised team of race engineers at West Belkonnen Kustomz (ie in the shed).  So yeah, no r35 to speak of but that is the dream one day.

Anyways, I doubt anyone that could afford an r35 would be bothered screwing around cutting rust out of a datsun, LOL.  But hey, you never know.

Andrew

Have any of you come across a bright yellow 2+2 with front spoiler and gold mesh type wheels?  I sold it to a young guy down there in early 2004.

This guy walked over to me after I had parked the Z at work and he said that he had a 240Z, red with triple webers and a mild cam.  He said it was a really early car, thinks it's a '69.  He said he'd done a bare metal respray and now it's in his garage, reckons he'll never sell it.  I told him about the Canberra Z club but he said it wasn't really for him.  So there you go.  :)

Also spotted a sky blue two tone Z31 in really good nick in the car park.
