Spotted thead (ACT)

Recommended Posts

6pm today spotted nice red 240z with gold wheels on Hindmarsh drive near Weston...2nd time in a month.

 

Welcome Andrew (Dorifticon) and your pearl coloured 260-2seater ! I just read your 8 page write-up on Ozdat that you linked to....looks great !

What side of Canberra are you on ? I cant believe how many Canberrans are on Ozdat !

What sort of zed does Bob have (the guy that helped you in the zed rebuild) ...Its not the same Big-Bob with the R35 GTR is it ?

Hi guys

Chris, no Bob is a moderator on Ozdat, he has a CA18det-powered gazelle (silvia s12? the one with flip-up headlights).  His tag is Bob260 cos he used to have one.  Anyways, the CA18det was hand-built by the specialised team of race engineers at West Belkonnen Kustomz (ie in the shed).  So yeah, no r35 to speak of but that is the dream one day.

 

Anyways, I doubt anyone that could afford an r35 would be bothered screwing around cutting rust out of a datsun, LOL.  But hey, you never know.

 

Andrew

Have any of you come across a bright yellow 2+2 with front spoiler and gold mesh type wheels?  I sold it to a young guy down there in early 2004.

This guy walked over to me after I had parked the Z at work and he said that he had a 240Z, red with triple webers and a mild cam.  He said it was a really early car, thinks it's a '69.  He said he'd done a bare metal respray and now it's in his garage, reckons he'll never sell it.  I told him about the Canberra Z club but he said it wasn't really for him.  So there you go.  :)

 

Also spotted a sky blue two tone Z31 in really good nick in the car park.

Yep never seen the yellow one.

 

As for the Z31, there's a two-tone blue and black turbo one for sale in ACT at the moment, could be it?

If it's this one http://carsales.com.au/all-cars/private/details.aspx?R=6734073&__Qpb=true&Cr=1&__Ns=pCar_RankSort_Int32|1||pCar_Price_Decimal|1||pCar_Make_String|0||pCar_Model_String|0&keywords=&__N=1216%201247%201252%201282%204294963846%204294963448%20412%20897&silo=1011&PriceTo=412&seot=0&tsrc=allcarhome&__Nne=15&trecs=4&__sid=120011254783 then I think it is.  It's in very good nick, you can really tell it's been looked after.

Spottered Mark Olivers Mazda 1000 ute today. Not hard seen as he is a good mate and lives near me. Spottered the drool on the ground around it too. Sorry Mark. The thing is fully custom. The tray is customized to look smoother and its completely shaven and seem welded. Color is like the ford yellow green Like the fx holden comming through the shed wall above his workshop door. but has a mad yellow pearl to it. Lots of work go into it all by Mark. So definitely worth checking out. I know 3 others from here have used his shop.

Ah, whoops, my bad - I thought "never sell it" means he thought he'd never be able to sell it, not that he no longer would want to sell it.  I just thought he might be asking too much.

 

That's kind of what happened with mine, I was going to sell it, then I did the respray and spent $ ,000's on paint (and heaps of hours) and there's just no point selling now.

Spotted a white 260Z 2+2 on the intersection of Majura and Cowper Street Sunday afternoon.

 

Front spoiler, good shiny paint, nice wheels (they looked like jelly-bean mags, but not sure)

 

I wasn't in my zed at the time, so I didn't bother flashing my lights!

Anyone know/seen this car before?

Yeh, if it didnt have a hornet bonnet scoop (hot 260), then I think its a dude who also has a R33 GTST on Skylines Oz, though im not sure if he has put any body kit type stuff on.

Saw a very mint looking 260Z 2+2 this morning. It had a shiny brown paint job, standard mags and overall looked in top condition. NSW plates just coming up over the hill from Lake George heading into ACT.

 

Lucky me, I also spotted tonight along northborne a brand new white R35 GTR - first one I've seen in the flesh, and I must say they are quite impressive in a low and chunky kind of way!

I was in Goulburn the other day and spotted this parked out the front of the Jail. I think it was the same brown one I saw on the highway a few months ago. Apart from a little damage to the front right fender, it was a very tidy car indeed! The interior was spotless, almost new with original diamond pattern vinyl and unmarked seats - not even a dash crack could be seen.
