  1. Hmmm... that's pretty good money for a tribute car then... I guess the original is priceless. That obnoxious troll who was on this forum a month back telling us the Zeds are worth stuff-all would have a heart attack. BTW, why does the original No.11 have a RH headlamp bucket in the outdoor video and yet that's missing in the Zama museum photo?
  2. Oh dear... dare I ask, what did they hit, an elephant? The body shell looks like one large ripple... There's that jacking point, another detail...
  3. Thanks for the Zama photos. Drool. Well that's two of the race/rally cars. Love those bonnet-mounted driving lights. I'll have to google the US scene, wondering whether any of the BRE and other well known race cars have been preserved. Anyway, IMO there's always a place for 'tribute' cars, even a token, to keep the history alive. Just so long as no-one tries to pass one off as the real thing when it changes hands of course. That's a whole separate discussion in itself.....
  4. Does the R31 motor wiring bear any resemblance to the 260Z wiring? Sounds like you're missing something from the R31 circuitry. As for the Honda motor, can you rotate the shaft manually at all or is it seized?
  5. Pity that didn't become a production modification. Most interesting... feel free to keep talking. PS. is that a rippled panel in the top RH side of the first picture where the white lettering is? Or maybe it's just a visual distortion.
  6. Good-oh, was going to offer you one that came off a Fairlady but you already have it.
  7. Terrific, HS30-H, thanks for the info which I and I'm sure many others here do appreciate. So we can now look forward to your assembly/build up of a replica Works test car in 2021, having already collected up so many of the right bits? Awesome. Lots of photos please. Thanks.
  8. And I wish I could take you up on it! I'd love to see the real things. Are they all in Japan, as in the Nissan museum that some on this forum have visited? Or private ownership? I don't suppose any of the old rally and race cars from that era are in the UK? What happened to 'Big Sam'? I visit the UK from time-to-time, family connections, but no plans to visit Japan, but going nowhere while this bloody covid19 germ is still stalking us all.
  9. Or www.seatsafe.com.au
  10. Well I for one would be proud to own it. Someone has gone to a great deal of trouble with all the decals & graphics. How could we, unless we saw them being built. But we can still appreciate their history and tribute cars keep that history alive and not confined to museums.
  11. After very publicly dumping on everyone who owns a Zed, whether their car is up for sale or not, and the very same people whose advice he would surely need probably many times over, IMHO he's shot himself in the foot several times over and left himself little choice but to get a third party involved. He won't be getting any parts or help from me that's for sure.
  12. Yes, that ad has now been running for a while. Unsurprisingly. Arrogant, who would bother even replying? But didn't I read him say that he'd now got a car, somewhere in that old thread? Or maybe I mis-read, senior moment perhaps...
  13. Well that flies right in the face of that troll who was on this forum recently telling all that these old Zeds are really worth nothing much and he shouldn't have to pay much either...! It looks pretty bad but hopefully not a heart-breaker for the keen new owner, and another car in a diminishing pool of cars will eventually be saved.
  14. Can you not pick up a complete set-up from a parted-out car fro your 260Z? Plenty of 260Zs in Aus seemed to have A/C. You'll need the A/C version of the heater control panel with its extra controls.
  15. Well that confirms that then, now we all know for sure. This Zed parts guy I used to know knew his stuff and what parts fitted where, a font of knowledge, he used to work for Nissan Datsun.
