Newbie from Norway with 240z

Update:  The car is now ready for the street. Had to convert it to fairly original shape to meet the norwegian MOT-requirements for registration. Here are some pics of the car in MOT-approved condition.  Will get the norwegian plates next week:)

Good to see the Z has the garage ;)

 

Really smooth looking car. I have a friend going to live on Norway for a year and she's looking for a car, she says they all seem to be quite expensive over there. I told her she should buy a z but I doubt that will happen ;)

ahh yes it is an RA23.

 

I need to pay more attention to the detail, i always get them mixed up.

 

Same here, I think you can tell by the front Grille the RA23 is slightly different in that area. I personally like the TA22 style most.

Its a 76 ra23 as you already found out, and my brothers AW11 1987. Actually there is good space for all 3 cars in the garage:)

 

And yes, cars are expensive in Norway

great car!

lots of attention to detail.

Did Jan @jancarfactory do the interior?

looks very familiar. I have been in contact with him about doing some bits and pieces but communication is slow.

Easiest way to tell the RA from the TA is the lights in the front of the fender where it meets the bumper. TA they are the indicators (orange) and are sloped on an angle. RA they are side lights (Clear) and are vertical. Well, at least that's how I do it. I had an RA28 and my brother had a TA22.

 

Nice Z.  ;D

As a matter of interest, can you tell us the break down of costs that you were charged for the interior in your currency, Dash, Seats, Door Trims, Carpets etc?

 

Cheers

Interesting,

 

Just saw the post for the cost of the interior

 

Krone of Norway 30,000 NOK = AUS $5709.95

 

Pretty much on par with what you would expect to pay a quality trimmer in Australia.

 

Looks fantastic nevertheless.

The car is finally on the street, first season after restoration.  Feel good to finally drive her:)  (Her friend is called Celica...;) )
