yet another newbie

I live on the east coast side of the united states in the state of north carolina. I am 35 years old and have owned two Z's so far. I have also owned at best count 9 510's/ 1600/ bluebirds and one 67.5 1600 fairlady. As for the Z's the first one I bought and currently still own/ will always own is a 1972 240Z US version- The car was originally owned by a Datsun/Nissan racer by the name of Jim Fitzgerald. He was teammates and best friend to Paul Newman at Bob Sharp Racing. This 240 was his street "toy". I have heard stories of engines run and blown up in this car just to be replaced with another. It is simply dressed with BRE style front and rear spoilers and had "Libra" 14x5.5 4-spoke wheels on it. I have since sourced a set of the magnesium 14x7 "LeMans" wheels which were used on the BRE Z's in the 70's. I have also purchased a set of Minilites which was fitzys' choice of wheel on his racecars. Drivetrain is stock L28 with '72 SU carbs, Comp header, 2.5" exhaust electronic ignition 5spd tranny R200 4.11 diff 4-wheel disc brakes Comp european springs with KYB struts. I have done more than a fair share of body work to get the body back in shape. The car has been converted to a black interior to match a set of Recaro seats. The car also has the euro style bumpers with shaved emblems, side lights, etc. I have parted out a couple of various s30 cars over the years to better what I had in most cases, so if you are looking for parts/spares for a s30, keep me in mind- willing to ship, willing to trade for non-us items, memorbillia etc. Looking for taillights w/ amber lenses (see ads) Thanks for your time and interest. Jim oh yeah, the other z was a 81 ZXT.

Ill see if i can find you some tail lights. Do they have to be 240Z tail lights, or would you take 260Z (2 seater) tail lights?

the ones here that were turbo cars came with 3.90 in the manual cars and the automatic had the 4.11 in 85 and I think 86- but the regular 200sx N/A had a 4.11 R180 diff in it if you can use the R180. Either way, you're lookinf at approx $200 Usd.
