  5. You're in California it seems so we can't recommend a local shop here. We mostly specialise in Australian shops etc.. here. California is a big place so perhaps a location you're looking at may help. I know some Z owners in the US and could ask them for recommendations.
  6. @crackerrecently sold this car almost immediately after listing it. But that was a few weeks ago (before interest rate rises) which seem to have put a wet blanket on things.
  7. Does the string even exist? - Albert Einstein (probably).
  8. To view the registry gallery you'll need to be a donating member. But if you're keen on #189 or if anyone else is you can see some photos of it from early 2000s I have here in my Google Photos album. https://goo.gl/photos/VNdUDx2BKaYSh3GJ8 The resolution is so low, because I actually had to lift them off an old iPod. This was a time when I still stored things on CD-ROMs and I was lucky I hadn't actually deleted these photos, but I figured the new owner some day may want to see them so I held onto them...
  9. I saw the car in 2004, I took the photos of it when it was 918 orange and it was missing the original L24 back then. In fact I was offered to trade my 72 240z for it, as I wanted an early car, but non matching no.s engine was a factor in why I said no. Also it was in need of rust repairs and paint and I was happy to have a running driving 240z. It was fairly solid back then though, as far as 240z's go. It was also pretty original. Aside from the missing engine. I believe it went up to around $80k at auction but reserve was set higher at the time. Think it was via Lloyds. IMHO for an early 240z it represents good value, but I'm not sure as to the quality of its current restoration.
  10. Sorry for your loss. I met your old man a few times. Great bloke. He will be missed in the community.
  11. I think it's a Y31 CIMA VG30. https://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/216798-y31-cima/?do=findComment&comment=4021298
  12. I think that's a Z31 engine. *Edit I'm not sure actually it may have come out of a sedan, since that intake plenum I don't recognise.

    You can find these in Japan. If you sign up to Rinkya, you can use my affiliate link (to give me some credit) haha. https://www.rinkya.com/en/signup/basic?referrer=23764 MK63 listings here: https://www.rinkya.com/en/front/search/0?query=MK63
  14. So are you going to find a donor rear half?
  15. I must say the new Z has appeal in a market with limited options. But it will never be as legendary as the original. I recall people "trading up" from 240z's to buy 350z's in the early 2000s. How did that work out?
