    ...well not quite, but he may as well be.

    Yesterday, around midday, Gavin and Maria welcomed Gav Jnr. into the world weighting in at 3.73kg / 8.22lbs and 50cm long (Nort Bhad. Good Size).



    I'm sure you will all join me in congratulating Gav and Maria, and hopefully we'll see him again in around 16-18 years...

    This is probably just bait. But I can't help myself.. since I love a good game of tennis.
    Spare a thought for us long term enthusiasts a minute, every other day some flat brimmed hat wearing, vape smoking, soy latte drinking, YOLO kid, joins up looking for a 240z/260z (2seaters ONLY PLEASE)* and hoping they will get a rust free, straight, RB25 400HP + conversion car, fully engineered, DID I SAY rust free car? for $20k? Oh and they have been looking for 6 months and have got sick of looking in the classifieds and want it all spoon fed to them. But first they want to offer their doomsday example of an S13 coupe which has been put into every wall at the drift track with a massive dildo gearknob pic as 1 of the key selling points.
    * Oh btw 2+2's are a strict no no, because it won't score you enough instagram internet points when slammed on its guts with massive flares, cheap eBay fender mirrors, LED tail lamps, massive bright red Recaro's and a straight pipe exhaust affectionately known as "blast pipes".
    But of course we the owners are the "wankers". :).
    According to Hayden's book of collectible sports cars from the 60's/70's and 80's? Someone paid $300k for an old Ford Falcon covered in Chicken Shite.

    And you're complaining about S30Z prices?
    LOL, ok good luck with that. I actually really hope you get a good car. But let me just say I've seen a lot of these HLS30's in the flesh. They are often in far worse shape than HS30s but look "good in photos". In person it's another deal all together. Prices in the US have been rising and a car that cheap is unlikely to be any good. Plus it's resale value in this part of the world will be lower.
    Not really, when you consider there is none on the market anymore. In terms of classic cars compared to many of their peers they still represent good buying. Whilst central banks keep printing money (they call this stimulus) it will just keep inflating asset prices (seen the price of gold or BTC lately?). What about real estate? They are viewed as a bit of a safe haven asset. Unlike that Mustang you crowed about which is a depreciating asset at this point in the cycle.
    You can also buy a Z34 for $20k now, but nobody seems to want those, despite probably being better than an early Z at everything. Except turning heads. :).
    I like it when the new guys make an effort to fit in. :).
    I can understand the sentiment if you've missed out on the price boom. I am still upset I didn't jump on a GTR (R32/R33 or R34 in particular). I thought R34 GTRs were expensive at $40k back in 2012 odd. I was like I'll wait a bit longer and prices will come down a bit more. Never happened though! Now I kick myself lol.
    Such is life.

    Yes I have based the engine and all the upgrades on les’ recommendations with the stipulation that it needs to be still nice/reasonably easy to drive on a sunny Sunday and additionally I want it to be quick and to have modern sports car performance figures. 
     
    And I couldn’t agree more Jeff...the L Series is an amazing engine. That engine and that sound was the essence of the z cars...I wouldn’t want to go down the road of changing that.
