  1. Today
  2. https://www.grays.com/lot/0001-70006137/classic-cars/1975-datsun-260z-manual-coupe?redirect=0 ends in an hour and reserve looks to be in the mid 30’s if their bar graph thingy is accurate
  3. Lindsay Drife at @Z Shop Performancehas the following motors. Which I've cross checked and place in cars with serial numbers in following areas: L24-029624 - Would have been in HS30 005XX range. L24-052485 - HS30-01190 has L24-052484 - so a VIN # close to that is likely to have had L24-052485 L24-091184 - HS30-11XXX - so a 72 model beginning in that range. L24-018626 - Is fairly early. I'm guessing it will be out of a 70 240z with HS30 002XX range. I hope I made someone's lucky day.
  4. Yesterday
  5. My bonnet is not to bad and definitely repairable. Just trying to decide where I spend my money, I can either purchase more hours at MotoRRetro and use there tools to repair the original or just buy a new bonnet - both have advantages Anyway, thanks a bunch for your replies
  6. Brass velocity stacks to suit Mikuni PHH carburettors, may also suit side draught Weber and Dellorto carburettors. Please note that these are raw finished and may require additional polishing for a perfect shine.


    380.00 AUD
  7. @kamarchi very good quality definitely recommend it
  8. I looked at rare spares a while ago and couldn't find ones that looked OEM. Aside from the ones above which look similar, but obviously a little different. No idea if they work?
  9. Try to modify something like this?
  10. Have a look at Rare Spares - IIRC Holden's use something similar for some of their trims. Caveat: I've not tried them though.
  11. Thanks but wrong clips need these
  12. Try Rob at the Zfactory : https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/mordialloc/auto-body-parts/datsun-240z-260z-interior-buttons-pack-of-30/1139510092 You will need these for the interior trim as well.
  13. be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” Warren Buffett But who knows what to believe these days. What do you think?? https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/leaked-chinese-document-reveals-a-sinister-plan-to-unleash-coronaviruses/news-story/53674e8108ad5a655e07e990daa85465
  14. After a lot of putting on and taking off valance, trim panels and bumper finally got it almost right or completely wrong I think the gap under the tail light trim is too big and the valance should be straight along the top The gap between the bumper and valance is almost uniform and the bumper needs to move to the left a little A big problem is how to attach the tail light trim panels as I do not have the required clips and don't really want to import them from USA So do the gaps need to be closed up and any ideas how to attach the trim Thanks
  15. what was the quality of the reproduction bonnet like?
  16. what's the saying go? 'sell everything when taxi drivers start talking about investing' or when ACA get on to the topic.
  17. I like my oversized bagutte with heated seats thank you
  18. Spoken like someone that owns a French car. Haha.
  19. To be fair I actually thought asset prices would drop also, but central banks just printed money to infinite and in that Environment there is just too many dollars chasing too few assets. A lot of people are still doing it tough. I was lucky to land a job mid pandemic, but at considerable pay cut compared to what I was earning prior. Some people made more money than ever though, since they were in the right business or on the receiving end of Government giveaways. Gerry Harvey is a pr1ck if you ask me. Hate that bloke haha. But alas life is not fair is it? What worries me i
  20. Last week
  21. Interesting, but no surprises there. Yet if you recall about this time last year a certain new forum member was loudly and persistently proclaiming that our beloved hobby cars can't be worth anything like the advertised asking prices as they're only Datsuns after all. Also saying that by year's end car values will have crashed thanks to pandemic-induced panic selling and he'll have the pick of the crop for a bargain. He couldn't have been more wrong.
  22. not the C34 Stageas, they aren't "luxobarges," they just hearses
