Hello from Ireland
Posted 14 July 2008 - 09:03 PM
Bought a 260z 2+2 a year ago, which came from austrailia the year before. was in mint condition with no rust at all.
Just finished doing alot of work on her including a full l28 engine build.
Anyway a couple of pics. anyone know the car?

the original you got from oz was good, but what youve done with it is amazing!!!
ive never even seen a datsun in ireland, so ive not seen yours.
we should set up a d.o.c.i. datsun owners club ireland!!!
youd count the members on 1 hand and wed have meets at the back of mcdonalds in the pissing rain.
itd be mad!
damn you, youve got the deep dish alloys

There are a few 260'z floating around, I know a fella from Gorey who has a mint one, blue which was brought in from California,
There is also a yellow one in Kildare.
We will definaltly have to get together and take pics!
Alot of people don't like the 2+2 model, but I just love the lines!!

What are the make of the rims?
Posted 15 July 2008 - 07:31 AM
The rims are made by Image wheels in the Uk, they are custom made to whatever size you want.

What did you do in terms of an L28 build?

the engine spec is
86.1mm flat top pistons
6-1 msa manifold (header)
all new bearings
p90a head shaved 2mm
.495 290 cam
thats about it, only have 400 miles on the engine, gonna get a few more on it then get it set up properly on a rolling road.

That looks fantastic. It's the wheels that top it off, amazing how good it makes it look when the flares are filled properly.
You should prepare an artical for your car that we can feature on the front page.

Yeah I must see if I can come up with something for the front page that would be great,

Your car has to be at least 30 years old tho, what month was yours registered?
Posted 18 July 2008 - 05:39 AM
do you just go to the license registration place and say "can i have an old plate?"
then can you pick your number?
cause vanity plates arent really legal in ireland, so im curious
