Hi all,
I'm Zoe, but everyone calls me skunk, 17, from Vic, and obviously I love Datsuns.
Dream car = 240Z or 260 [2 seaters of course] with an RB20 or possibly a rotary.
In the process of looking for one to begin the process of building a show car over the next few years.
Not extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the engine side of things and such, hence the mechanic boyfriend, but certainly keen to learn.

For now, thats it I guess. Will be cruising around, lurking mainly. Hunting for that special car to call my own.

Cheers

Honestly, its the boyfriends idea. Loves his rice and rotaries XD
Like i said, still not sure what my plans are with it, but I dont want just looks, or just speed. I want a nice combination :)

Rotaries are great :-), most amazing HP figures for such a little engine - friends RX7 makes 440rwkw from a 1.3L,

This should get you started :-)!!!

What's wrong with 4 seater's? They are clearly the best.

Where does it say there's something wrong with 4 seater's..

If you one of us lucky ones you wouldn't be pulling your own chain..

2 seater sports car, not a family mover..

Haha noted. Thanks. lol

And I do like the 4 seaters, Dad used to have one.
But I really do prefer the look of the coupes. Nicer roof line, much sleeker.
Still sexy regardless.
Haha

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone

Doesn't say that anywhere. She just said "two seater's, of course". I'm supporting my 2+2, don't want its feelings to get hurt.

P.s welcome to the forums, Skunk. Hope you find what you're looking for.

2+2's go faster of course! But they are ugly as sin :-)

If you get a 4 seater grab a 280zx, at least the back seats weren't an after thought :-)!!!

guys dint fight about which one is the best ::) at the end of the day they are all zeds, and are all good in their own way.
the old saying goes horses for courses,  if you wand a nice cruise car go for a 280zx,
if you want a balls to the wall sports car go a 240/260z 2 seater, and if you want something in between go a 260z 2+2
