Hi Guys.  My girlfriend is set on getting a 240 or 260Z....  So now I've got to find one and get building.  Or find a mint body- silver 240/60 and re do the inside and motor (she want's a VH45!).  I'll be back from europe in December till late January I'd say, so if anyone had/knows of a decent 240/60 forsale please let me know.

Cheers

Justin

Your girlfriend has good taste. You will be lucky to find one in Tassie, I think there was a 260Z 2+2 in Evandale not long ago it wa on ebay and from memory had a VG30DE in it.

Make sure you read the forums etc. I think there is someone doing a VH45 conversion now.

Me personally would stick with the L series engine which you can get up to 2.8L in. If you stroke it with a diesel crank your looking at 3.1L-3.2L.

Or go an RB25DET or RB26DETT good strong engines with grunt and also keeps the inline six of the original zed cars.

Goodluck with it

Hunter

do know of  240z with flares and front and rear spoilers in metalic red here and hot l28 here in devonport guy has been trying to sell on and off for while now wants around $12,000 if its still as good as last time i saw it id say its worth it
id give lot thought to the vh45 install not sure how robstar is going with his but still looks lot work to me can help you with LS1 chev and 6 speed conversion 300 kw and lots after market gear to be had if u want more hp lot easier way to get a injected v8 into a zed but thats my view
let me know if you want to follow up local 240z

by the way bluerat still have the rotary bug just put rx4 back in shed (it usually sits under a gum tree till next race meet the rx4 that is) with zed lol but the zed is my first love had it for over 20 years now keep saying ill sell the rotary when i get the zed back on road but the closer it gets the harder it is to part with the old chook cooker lol

Oh well Mick, as long as you still have the Zed, ha, ha. I've got a few photo's of the RX-4, both on and off the gravel, PM me your email and I'll send them on, I won't dare put them up on this fine website!!!!

Also there's a young bloke here with a very tidy dark metallic blue 240(260) with silver 'Cobra' stripes here on the coast, I dont know any more other than it sounds good.

I wonder how Scando is going today?? He will have HQ fever after this weekend!!

Sorry Hunter,

As a fully paid up member of the anti-Wankle league, I would not dare pollute this fine forum with a dirty, noisey smelly Rotary....LOL...sorry Mick.

We had the 'Tarmac Challange' up here last weekend, with a pair of brothers in a Silver 240Z running from Vic, It was running in C2 specs, with a L24 etc, sounded ace!!!

We are more a 'League of Gentlemen' than a club.....

Good photo Mick, was it at the mighty Barrington hillclimb during the Classic Challange?? I'm sure the Zed spoiler made all the difference. Did you get the one's I emailed? I could of done with a little Datsun back up at the Clubday at Symmons last weekend, there were Wankles everywhere! pesky things.....Did I mention that my brother has a R100?, a little shamefull family secret we dont like to talk about!

This 4 round race series the Mainlanders are talking about sounds like a good thing, I'd love to pop over and do an event at Phillip Island or Sandown?

you certianly know your pics yeah its the lake barrington hillclimb during classic challenge zed spoiler made all the difference was running well up the placing till broke spoiler on tip stage all went to beep after that diff died ( should have stuck with the 4.4 diff instead of upping it to a 4.8 ) next day at symons and then again on the monday lol had to drag the zed out of the shed to finish the event thought didnt clasifly as a finisher using two cars
But we did win the event the following year in the rx4
Off to check out lake barrington hillclimb tomorrow as part of the challenge just didnt manage to get the zed sorted for the event so ill ride the zx10r up and check it out
Sorry couldnt help you fight the wankel arm last weekend was sleeping after night shift and if i had come would have bought the rx4 so not much support
got the pics thanks looking forward to seeing the orginals dont have many of the yellow rx4 before it meet its untimley death
Would luv to do some of the mainland series too so close with the zed now got brakes sorted just few more issues to sort out But i really like the new engine so much grunt if i didnt have ears the smile would go right round my head the other day when i opened it up on the highway

It's a magic hill the mighty Barrington!! I had a ripper of a day there in March.

The classic challange looks like an excellent event, It keeps slipping under the radar which is a shame. Doing it on the bike would be fun!!

My brothers 'other' car is a SS Crewman, with heaps of GO, Something that is 600kg lighter with the same engine would be awesome, I'm looking foward to seeing it in action.....

The 4 round series the Victorian guys are talking about does sound like a great idea.  I doubt I'd be able to afford to take the car over though.  Damn that bit of water in between!  I guess it wouldn't be too bad if you drove the car and tow vehicle onto the boat and hired a trailer over there.  I've had a walk around Sandown and I reckon that would be heaps of fun.  Very tight and technical.

Had good day up at lake barrington the motorkana was good Jason street in his r33 gtr was was good to watch he sure puts on a show

The challenge is a great weekend 3 days of hillclimbs and motorkanas plus day at symons for $700 entry fee and modified cars allowed no targa restrictions on must have orginal engine Know ill be running again next year

friend did the mg nationals in brisbane hired trailer in melbourne and towed mg up so much cheaper than taking trailer on the spirit

doubt i could do the 4 rounds in melbourne but might manage one

One a year sounds good Mick, we better plan one next year.

Curley is a weapon in his GTR, I was just looking at some photo's of his old Yellow FJ20T Bluebird wagon understeering off the road at Barrington a few years ago...

Hey Hunter,

I was talking to Elf last weekend, and it looks like he moving along very well getting the 300zx ready for 'tugga', It looks like the cage is in and he is looking for seats, bigger brakes etc, and I think he said he had entered. He's a wild boy behind the wheel and should go well. It looks like 'Duck' will be dragging out his blue 240Zed to do some gravel events next year as well, after he carved us all up in a VN wagon at the Gravel hillclimb last weekend....old bugger!!!

Good to hear Elf is going well with the car. I still regret selling it but all was for the better.

I went for a ride with DUCK he is mad as a cut snake.
