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.

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??

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.

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.

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

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.
