Sorry Mick it's not me....I've got the 240Z you enquired about on the first page of this thread, the other red one from the north west. My shed is already overflowing, two 1600's and a couple hundred bales of hay, bloody horses!! So I'm storing/working on it at a mates shed in Smithton. I wasn't going to post anything about mine until it looks a bit more interesting, and I get he history side of it making some sense.

Hillclimb looks like its going to be a ripper, big entry so far. We have lost Barrington this year but picked up another on down in Slowbart, sorry Hobart. So it all bids well for a good year. Hope to see yours Zed in action soon.

I'm having a ball tracking it's race/rally history back to the mid 80's. It's first event was the St Helens state round in '88 it got 3rd outright, my 1600 came 2nd.....Just got to find the winner and I'll have the full podium!! Just got a heap of photos and articles from Rog's Navigator, and spoke to original builder/owner yesterday. I'll post some stuff up when it starts to look more like a car.

Hey Hunter did you get a chance to check out your old girl in Targa??

Sorry about the dodgy Longford shot, I was three people deep when I took it. He had some troubles, but in typical Elf fashion soldiered on. Did you spectate with the Wombat on the Roseberry stage??

I was Flying Finish Post Chief....seen Elf fly past as he finished the Rosebery Stage. Looks good.

I am going to get a signed Targa Hat off him and put it in a framewith a picof the car and put it in my new house when I rebuild

Finish post?? Did you see the big Goofy looking guy squashed into the passenger seat of the Red MX-5 Zero car?? Was that the control that Tammy was the radio chick? Yeah the Dutchies did a top job!! Man it was a quick year, the pace was red hot at the front of the feild!! Did you ever race against Phill House fro m Circluar head, Mick, he had a real tidy green Cooper S, and now races a white BMW 325?? he won Rookie classic , and the guy I usually service for, Pete Ullich in the mighty Jenson CV8 came second in the old bangers, a top year all round. Jamie, Pig and the boys had a HUGE Sunday night/Monday!! Elf sure loves black!! Black Elf makes him sound like somethng off lord of the rings, he just need pointy ears!!

Anyone down south know anything about this car?  It's currently FS & unfortunately I can't justify a trip to Tassie just to look at a car.  (Even a 240.  :))

Thanks in anticipation.

I went and looked at this car with my dad a few weeks ago cause he was interested in buying it.  It's reasonably tidy, the interior is good.  Mechanically it seems perfect.  The reason dad didn't buy it was it had a bit of rust in most of the usual places and he doesn't have time for a project.  Passenger side floorpan was the worst.  But we found some bubbles in one of the sils, one door, one guard, and the beaver panel.  Overall it's a pretty good car and I'm very surprised it hasn't already sold at the price he's asking.  If you're willing to accept that it will need a few rust repairs in the future then it's a good buy in my opinion.  The owner seems like a very genuine guy too.

Let me know if there's any other info I can help you with.

Cheers

Shane

Thanks for the feedback Shane.  I know this is a subjective question but do you think the car would pass a roadworthy in it's current condition or will the rust, particularly the passenger floor pan, require repair before roadworthy?

Any background on the suspension / engine mods?  When I spoke to the owner today he was in a bit of a rush & didn't give too many details.

Thx again.

Here in Tassie I'm sure it would pass as it is but I know most other states are a lot more strict.  If I were to buy the car I would definately do the passenger floorpan straight away and maybe replace the front left guard if you can find one reasonably cheap.

From memory the engine is an L28 and has the 240Z carbs and a mild cam.  I'm not sure if it was built with flat tops maybe?  It's no power house but goes probably a little better than a standard 240Z and runs very smooth.

Suspension I think was a full whiteline kit with stiffer springs and swaybars.  I think it had Tokico shocks.

Don't quote me on any of this, just going on what I remember  :)

Thanks Shane.  Your memory was pretty good!

I've had a subsequent discussion with the owner & the car has a pretty long history & appears to have picked up a variety of minor mods/improvements along the way, (with not much coherent planning as to how the whole thing will fit together), but is sounds as if most things have been done reasonably well.

I'm getting some more detailed photos of the rust spots so it will be interesting to see these.  Interestingly the list of rust issues supplied by the owner wasn't as extensive as yours?  :)

A couple of locals are apparently looking at the car in detail so it will be interesting to see how quickly it sells.
