  1. Past hour
  2. Yes. I should have bought it in 2015 when GCM bought it. My beautiful wife was arguing the point that having just come back from touring central Australia in a Subaru and Jayco Swan, I didn't have a job or much money or any real prospects - a few points hard to argue with. I followed that car on @matt drago website for some time. Spoke to him at the time, price was fair. It came up 2 years later and I thought I had it. I was making transport plans when they delivered the bad news. Went to a lawyer. FYI - If an organisation provides you with an invoice for your deposit and they have an LMCT license, then that paid invoice is still legally just a letter of offer unless it has been signed off by a director. It's the game they play to get the highest amount. The things you learn. Anyway, it all ended well.
  3. Gosford Car Flipping Museum hey? So was it the silver 240z that @matt drago restored you missed out on? I personally would sell the S130Z. But that's just me. :). The car that I should have bought when it was at the Museum was the Fairlady 240Z-L....man that car..

    Good to see progress John. Are you going to cage the car as those rails will have no crumple factor?

    Jeff's 240z build

    Dash has been pulled apart washed cleaned and touched up or repaired, instruments were pulled apart cleaned, new light globes and then all re assembled. I have started to put a few small items back onto the shell, placed an order with Car Builders, awaiting a delivery of rubber components from Merica. Its been fun unpacking components that were reconditioned over the past years and put into storage ready for bolting back together. If all goes to plan the next month should see some serious progress, and not before time. Happy days. Jeff

    Great work John. It’s a very strong platform to bolt the big banger to. Thumbs up. Jeff

  11. Hi Sean, Put me down for 2 flat profile ones! It will be a good addition to the metal 50th anniversary badge you sent me! Do you have pics of the black vs white writing? Kent
  12. I wish them a lot of luck, they're gonna need it.

    AT Power ITBs

    That's a really neat set-up you've got there, especially the intake manifold itself - any more details re:pricing and the like? Price was the main reason for me not purchasing an EFI Hardware kit; they were practically twice that of every other option. Have been speaking to the guys at AT Power a bit more and Ben reckons their 45s flow more than traditional 50s. At the very least these are sounding like an extremely well priced alternative to the OERs and Jenveys. Suffice to say I'm learning a lot. Still following up, if anyone has questions post them up and I'll pass them on!
  14. Z profiles : flat or domed. The flat versions are available in black or white text and profile : AUS$4 each Dimensions : 105mm long, 50mm above the sun and 25mm over the car-roof.

THis is merely a way of us clawing some money back on our recent indoor stand costs and only possible at these prices through the very good commercial contacts of our club secretary, David.
  15. At 75k pounds it's in MZR price range, which would be a much fairer comparison to a Singer!
  16. Ughhhhh......should be buried under a much bigger pile of leaves. Vilner < Singer
  17. No problem, I'll keep you updated
  18. Not to my taste, but TopGear Magazine have covered a 280Z modified by a Bulgarian tuner. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/classic/datsun-280z-has-been-completely-restored-glory
  19. Well done, many will be envious that you got to drive yours without having to do a lot of work.
  20. Hi. I'll take 3 of the fairlady badges please.
  21. Update! :) After the weekend she runs and drives! I changed out the fluids, new battery, coil, plugs, cleaned the fuel pump, replaced fuel filter and a couple of split hoses... and away she went. Runs smooth and quiet too. The rear drums were seized but came loose with some banging, and a brake bleed. Heres the ol girl down at the servo and the shops... still pretty covered in barn dust, a bit of rust, sticks and leaves.
  22. Tomorrow I am doing an order from the US and on the order will be multiply Fairlady Z badges. At this stage I am going to put 5 on the order, 1 for my spoiler and a friend's. The other 3 will be listed here for sale and/or on ebay.. Just wondering if any one wanted 1 or 2or 3? These are brand new, genuine Nissan items. 1 will cost $80 delivered to you via Australia post and any additional units an extra $70. To my knowledge these are currently an out of production item, however can be purchased from a host of suppliers but at a greater cost and only from overseas. I dont need payment up front so if you are keen let me know. I am also getting some early hatch vents these are $130 a pair posted..
  23. Got a couple of windows in perect condition. You would just need to pay postage i want them to go to a good home.. postage may be a tad as im in western australia. But sure we can work something out. No idea what they worth ?

    Introduction 260z 2 seater

    Yes the compliance plate is there it’s just hard to see because it was painted red with the engine bay.

    Introduction 260z 2 seater

    THe cream interior had black armrests on the 74 model so you have the right ones for your model. Mine is a 77' and the armrests are colour matched. The front fender mirrors are interesting for being a Japanese style. Do you have an ADR plate fitted in the engine bay? Cars that came into Australia by other routes like returning servicemen, NZ, PNG etc didnt get the ADR plate. (I can see the VIN plate) Gilltech has a 260Z similar to yours from NZ. Being an early 260 his has lots of 240Z features including the shorter radiator/higher cross member. A good guy to chat about features on your early 260.
  27. Thanks. I'll get another opinion regarding rust. However the interior was butchered some time ago. A previous owner has repainted that gloriously loud RED interior, installed leather seats that sit too high and covered everything else. Some people can't appreciate genuine beauty the way its maker intended.
  28. An old girlfriend of mine (many many years ago) had an 808 wagon her dad was gonna fix up for her. It was gonna be a bog and paint job type car as her first car. She wasn't sure about the car, at the time I said it's kind of cool looking, put a rotary in it haha. (I was a teenager at the time). I don't know what happened to that car, probably ended up on the scrap heap by now (this was late 90s). Who would have thought the humble 808 wagon's would be worth anything all these years later?
