greetings from the act. But not canberra. Canberra sux. Tuggeranong is the good act place to be. still sux though.

Nothing wrong with any datsuns. but if you want something fast and a hatch go for a 1200 coupe and then stick a ca18det in it bord out to 2l and running a disco potato. then tub the rear end and stick some hot rubber in it. Hehe 700kg of fighting datto. hehe then watch the passangers grab hold of the jesus bar and scream. (project yet to come and may be subject to copy right Devise Automotive A.C.T.)

nah the datsuns are good cruisers no matter what. Everyone here will help you out somehow. Dont be ashamed to ask for help or anything. Good look finding a good car.

interesting reading guys? but way off topic :o :o :o
as for the 1200 instead of boring the ca18det why not go for the sr20
also i would hate to split hairs but they way 750kg standard so would be closer to 800kg with a ca18det
they handle much better with the original a series ;) .... I do miss my 1200 it was faaassttt

There is a rotary powered Z in Vic!! I dunno where, but i have heard of it.  Dont think they really hang with the Z crowd though, too cool for school.  (Waits for onslaught from owner/friends)

depends on what materials you use to build the rest of the car, lol. 1200 can be made to way a small amount.

;D ;D ;D

LOL love the responses. Rotary powered Z, ca18 sr20 1200, sluging on the poor old 2+2 and 280zx. LOVE IT.

welcome to the site.

have to agree with gav don't put a wankel in a 240z.
though i do believe rotaries should stay in Mazdas and nissan engines in Datsuns.

i was going to do a bad sin. buy a rx4 coupe and install a SR20det. but couldnt find one so got a 260z and installed an RB instead. prob best decision i made  :P than after i did buy a RX4 but keeping it rotary powered.

2+2 just think of all the suitcases u can fit when u go to photoshoots or whatever u need to lug accross. also its handy in drive ins  :P ur BF will like it.

i should stop now.

good luck with the purchase.

ooh eh.

yeah actually i have already done a lot of work on sr20s should just stick to what i know. although they both have advantages and disadvantages.

there was a rotary powered vs sedan at one stage. This was when i was running a blown vs 5l. while i was starting to make things happen in the cruises around canberra. the guy pulled in to the area we were all hanging with "a commodore that actually goes" stickers all around it. Figured my ute looked like a good peace of pray. Told me he wanted to take me on in a 1km drag. My ute ate his car. He drove past laid into me. the rest of the guys around laughed at him so he left canberra upset.
So glad im out of the whole scene now. Much prefer cruising. But weight is the main problem I assume in the rotary scene.

Why?

At the end of the day its a Datsun, it's not like you are hacking up a Ferrari Daytona and stuffing a Holden 5L V8 in it :-)!

No, if you put a rotory in it its only half a Datsun...........
The other thing is the front of a Z is so long you could fit two 13b's in there. One rice burner for each of the rear wheels. LOL :P

That's the problem with the Datsun name; brings up images of the 120Y. There's no way I'd de-value a zed by installing anything "aussie" in it. Holden engines are best left in the poor excuse of a car the Commodore or Transit vans.

I didnt know he had a 350 Holden?  I thought it was a 350 Chev..  The U.S can make a half decent V8, Australia can't.
