2 x 280zx (I know I can not afford 240, 260, 280Z) in yard - another on way from Melbourne.  Hoping to build 2 from waht I can collect.  I know of another in shed in central Tas but always looking for more parts.

Mick at Dover BP has some 280zx's I think but don't know what condition or whats he's gonna do with them.

Mint 280zx at Shannons Hobart at the moment in window - don't know who owns it ?? But neat.

If you mean this one matto it belongs to the guy at shannons
and yes Taz, Micks place is amazing but he has far to many projects for a
mere mortal :)

Thats the one (Bronze) - very neat - might be a few years before my project even gets close.  Might have to find an excuse to go to Dover - does Mick ever want to buy stuff - I bought a 80' 280zx no motor, GB or Diff) that I am going to use for replacement panels - I have lots of tan interior bits and pieces, dash and center consul and seats (Although I may need the seats) that I probably will never use (Project car is the red interior and other is blue) . Is he up for swapping parts ???

Photo from NDSOC Tassie tour in 2006, lots of top datsun/nissans on show.
Mick seems to find complete cars for bargain prices, 280's mainly for the
mechanicals so I doubt he's much interested in interiors but no harm asking eh.

Anyone got any suggestions how I can bet a bonnet from Melb to Tas (Other than full courier costs).  Need to pick up on 29th/7 or before but freight costs are high

Will be picking up 280zx on 29th but bonnet will not fit.  Anyone got any ideas whether I could put the bonnet on the roof (Foor bars ??)

Any thoughts or offers gladly accepted.

And what do I see?  The 160B winding on a bit of opposite lock!  Surely it can't be?
