  1. I love the C3 Vette with the egg crate grilles down the side. Never driven 1 though!
  2. Originally 904 white? Black interior and manual? Compliance 05/72?
  3. Interestingly HS30 00890 was white, but I captured it as a black interior car. https://photos.app.goo.gl/WDMY4dZY0rBx3tHF2 But looking closer now, I feel like I can see a shade of blue on the vinyl in 1 or 2 of the photos. The current owner of the car also has a Stagea (we've spoken on Facebook), so I might ask him if it had a blue interior or if he can see any evidence as such. I always knew there should be more of these cars in this combo, but a lot of them have been changed over the years so makes it hard to know which is which.
  4. He cannot remember what number it was, he said ex-wife through all paperwork out years ago. He didn't sound impressed. Here are all the photos I have of his old 240z. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Lqui2fY4fVrVxCgdA "KZU - 567" - I really have to become friends with someone who works at Vicroads.
  5. https://www.motorious.com/articles/features/369111/collector-market-prices Picture that you are investing in a corporate bond, you have different levels of quality from a “AAA-Investment grade” bond all the way down to a “Junk-Bond/High-Yield” bond. From the outside the companies may appear the same, they are both public companies and each has a great brand, but when we look into the financials, one is outstanding, and one is leveraged with debt. For example, let’s compare two 1967 Corvette 427/435’s. One has every award in the country you can obtain, documentation, this car has been seen by every expert and is a (AAA) example, another car that looks exactly as this car, but does not have any judging, does not have any history or documentation and may or may not be, “matching numbers” (could be a “B”, “CCC”, or “Junk”) rating. The average person that is new to the hobby does not know the difference until they are explained this, the only thing they see is the one car that rolled across the block and “appears,” like an example that is a AAA piece. They don’t know why the auction car is valued “x” and the other car is valued at “2x” the price.
  6. Still a very rare combo... I only know of a total of 7 white with blue interior 240z's (HS30's). The 7 includes this car too! Also I'd almost be tempted to keep it 903 Blue and have the blue interior with it. It's a beautiful combination (perhaps my favorite) and never seen an HS30 here with it. Chinese buyer would love #888 too! Very lucky number.
  7. https://www.restore-parts.com/?s=s30 They don't have much S30Z inventory yet, be nice if they started to add more sections though! About 35 mins in.
  8. Cowl panel? For dashboard or windscreen wipers? I thought heaters were the same? Not sure if pedal boxes are interchangeable between sides..
  9. The only word of caution I would give you is that bodywork is much harder than it looks (to get it right). Especially fixing previous collision damage, cutting out rust and patching it up isn't too bad. If you are very picky with the overall finish of the car and bodywork, I'd highly recommend outsourcing some of the more difficult area. I've re-done a lot of spots I wasn't happy with and still not 100% happy with in some cases. Mechanical stuff on the other hand is easy enough to do (with the right tools). The MCM boys bought a car with a solid body, which made everything else easy. The car Jeff bought was quite rough to begin with, he had a lot of messing about with the bodywork. If you're in Sydney and want to do bodywork you may be interested in the classes at Ultimo. I have moved to Melbourne and can no longer attend.

  11. I've been trying for 20 years, does that count? :). A lot of it I'm doing for the first time. Learning as I go.
  12. The white 1 I've just put on temporary registration, will get it on Historic Plates as soon as possible. The Safari Gold car is my current project and priority, but it is also a lot of work.
  13. Closest car chassis no. wise to your car is HS30 01014 here (that I have on record). https://photos.app.goo.gl/YibfVFjOymzMqmGh1
  14. Awesome, she looked a little dirtier on the trailer
  15. Hey Mike, Did Joe from Get My Ride recently tow this for you? I thought I saw a black 1 like this on his Facebook page. Do you know what the chassis no. is?
