  1. Hmmm just testing now it seems fast to me. But every so often I've noticed some slowness, which may be server load induced.
  2. I wouldn't say easily, you'd need a donor front-end off a 260z 2+2 I'd imagine. But yes, fixable.

  9. Maybe also have a read of this thread.
  10. Did you call them? Might be worth a shot, sometimes the websites for these small businesses are not exactly set up right. I'd call them and check what they can do for you?
  11. O.S Giken head for L4. Datsun p510h510 race for the Blue Bird race 4-cylinder os Giken violet Twin Cam ostc16 head used rare https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/q307143286 1,500,000 yen ~ $21,000 AUD.
  12. Just an FYI folks, I asked Richard to post here, initially he sent an email to the club address. But that only really goes to a couple of people. Figured it would be better to start a thread here and you can ask any questions you may have. For those that know Paul has 1 of their gearboxes in his RB time attack Z (which sadly he's now sold).
  13. Gotta get inspiration from somewhere mate.
  14. Not exactly directly related.. but.. https://www.news.com.au/finance/business/retail/jb-hifi-fullyear-results-retailers-profit-up-71-to-250-million/news-story/d53d169e1b1f560ecf54e155024457a8 My emphasis in bold, I think with modern performance vehicles becoming quite "numb" in feel and very electronic. There is a sense that a lot of the joy in driving is from the older analog experience. Now sure most of us don't want to daily drive a Z in traffic if we don't have to, but they are the artisan version of cars. The mechanical feel is what attracts us to these older cars and the experience (even if slow by modern standards in many respects) doesn't matter. Personally I love the smell of the old vinyl seats, the squeak of the clutch pedal, the creeks of the old battle ship (chassis) and the smell of rich fuel on start up (or with the windows down lol). I think electric cars will become so good and maintenance free in future that us older car aficionados will still want to tinker, repair, maintain and explore what it means to own an older vehicle, much like the vinyl above.
  15. No need to delete it, but I've removed it from the front-page. If there is a ZCCQ regular meeting you'd like me to promote let me know?
  16. Nice 240ZG tribute. Current Price 4,500,000 yen (AU$65,610.00) Buyout Price 5,000,000 yen (AU$72,900.00) https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/c750420660
  17. That's why Sydney is so expensive now. Everyone is trying to do that. Melbourne isn't cheap, it's just less stupid than Sydney.
  18. Shame they want $2.5M+ otherwise I'd be keen lol.. Perhaps a lot more modest, but the last place I was interested in was this 1. https://www.realestateview.com.au/real-estate/9-lynette-avenue-warrandyte-vic/property-details-sold-residential-12597234/ Had room for at least 4 cars in that shed, and 2 in the carport out front, but sold before auction..
  19. That's why he's the best, no stone left unturned and people wonder why a good restored car should cost big $$$. It's because to do it right requires a lot of man hours, expertise etc..
  20. Pair of 40mm Solex/Mikuni carbs for $250. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1200518066824932/
  21. Thanks mate, If they post those events here, I can help promote them on the front-page to visibility. Hence why I bumped up this thread. It looks like it was semi-regular then died off.
  22. I would also consider putting the rear louvre's on it.
  23. I like the look, especially with the pinstriping and the peanut/kidney style alloys on these. It's a very 70s look. Plus those mud flaps help stop stone chips on the lower fender there. Is the pinstripe stick on? How does it attach? Also what the decal/sticker where the lock goes? Interested in that dealer style add on stuff.
