  1. Weird, I've just noticed the ID tag for HS30 103614 for sale on eBay. The chassis number of this stolen car is HS30 103613 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/124208231674
  2. Yeah, obviously, but why? Seems dodgy.
  3. Weird that it has a compliance plate from a 2+2.
  4. A Japanese video about the development of the S30 Z. Unfortunately it's all in Japanese, but some interesting footage none the less. Who'd have thought e type jags were so hard to get in and out of. https://sp.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm22801099
  5. #342 for sale on facebook too https://www.facebook.com/groups/DatsunClassifiedsAustralia/permalink/2481994365204580/
  6. Yep. Grahams collection. About 24 cars 240z's, 260z's 2 and 4 seaters, S130 2 seater. He must be devastated. Update: I've heard that his modified 260Zs (one with an RB25 and the other with an RB26) were not in the shed and were not involved in the shed fire.
  7. Toyota made an electric 2000GT a while back. http://blog.toyota.co.uk/we-drive-the-toyota-2000gt-solar-electric-vehicle I think that generation has already arrived. I see them most days, too busy on their smart phones every stop light and in peak hour stop start traffic on the freeways.
  8. This years photos are up: http://www.wazregister.com/index.php?title=Z_Day_2017
  9. Watch this space. In the meantime, here are some pics from last years event: http://www.wazregister.com/index.php?title=Z_Day_2016
  10. Another Portuguese 240z with these wheels: http://ozdat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=34623
  11. Barn Find Kit. This is hilarious. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Barn-Find-kit-Muscle-cars-Falcon-GT-Monaro-GTS-Torana-SLR-Taxis-Ride-the-boom-/172651077364?hash=item2832ce5ef4%3Ag%3A0xAAAOSwX61ZBGfo
  12. Meanwhile in the USA Nissan just dump their vintage parts in skips and send them off to get melted down. http://www.datsunparts.com/PartsDump.html
  13. HS30 00240. I've heard it is rusting away on a farm under a tree in WA somewhere and was too far gone to be restored. Considered deceased, unless proved otherwise.
  14. This is HS30 00230. Photos are from when it was on ebay in December 2006. Was located in SA. It was originally sold new in through a Dealership in Coffs Harbour. NSW in 1971 along with #345 and #785.
  15. Was just digging through my file archive and I have info on HS30 #'s 230, 240, 296, 322, 376, 379, 594, 707, 1178, 1232 & 1688 which I'll have to post. Also have the ebay page for #212 from 2006 when it was a buy it now at $4500.
  16. Looks to me like any other S30 indicator assembly, but with an added aftermarket style 1990's cruise controll kit. Niles is a Japanese brand of after market replacement part. eg: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/JAPAN-NILES-SWITCH-TURN-SIGNAL-FIT-FOR-DATSUN-510-SSS-BLUEBIRD-/151683321785?hash=item235107cfb9:g:9JoAAOSwBahVV1AO

  18. Forums are so last century, Theres a facebook group, Its the SA Bolwell club, but seems to be the only group for them. https://www.facebook.com/groups/906359082774602/
  19. I was just contacted by Adam a 240Z owner. #197 is alive an well in NSW. Trying to get some more details and a photo. It was owned by his mother for 30 years and now belongs to him.
  20. I'd value it at 1 to 5K based on his description. No usable interior, shell full of rust, left in a paddock for years, basket case, 260Z.
  21. Reminds me of the guy in the USA that had a Ferrari 250 GTO rotting away outside on his property for 15 years that he wouldn't sell. http://www.carbuildindex.com/28354/the-unbelievable-but-true-full-story-of-1962-ferrari-250-gto-3589/
  22. php. I run it manually on the server, but no reason why you couldn't automate it via a cron.
  23. I wrote something similar for ozdat. It can scan a forum thread looking for off site image links and cache local copies of the images incase they go missing at a later. It can also try to retrieve missing images from archive.org
