  1. But how much would it cost to bring back to a reasonable registerable car Gav?
  2. Seeing that this is a bubble thread a certain sporty model Mercedes was selling for around $30k a couple of years ago. Now several of them are listed in the $90's, true bloody story. But a disclaimer, what is happening I think is that long term owners saw a couple advertised in the 90's and decided to cash in. But it's a bubble price, a real bubble price.
  3. Look at the date and check those prices now. Sporty coupe prices have gone crazy and availability is tight, everything including BMW's and Mercs.
  4. Have you checked the number for sale and prices, Carsales is handy for that. If it's a clean original I'd hang onto it unless you can get a Z to replace it..
  5. I think that it was Road & Track which used to provide in depth specs on cars they tested. If they tested a 2+2 is another question.
  6. It's going to have pretty good bag for the buck because basically it's a 370Z chassis so Nissan have kept costs down there. So to me it all depends on the price and chassis improvements because the 370Z was never a good track car and not because it was under powered. The only good track Z is the S30 and that's disappointing.
  7. You took a bit of a punt and came out in front it looks to me.
  8. My preference every day would be to use a block breather in preference to one up top but for a road car it probably does not matter too much.
  9. No personal experience but the word is that they are untuneable and best junked.
  10. Brilliant! Great to see someone doing something outside the box for a change and making it work too.
  11. Have watched the first one a couple of times, super drive and the car's handling looks great, excellent power down out of the corners. It looks like a complete balanced package.
  12. I know of a cheeky bloke who bought a transmission on Ebay US, he was informed that an item like that was not covered by their freight concession plan, he got a refund.
  13. My comment is that given the increasing value of 260's doing mods just to save a few $ may not be best for the long term value of the car.
  14. You'd better start charging a commission Gavin
  15. The S130 and Z31 are very similar structurally, for some reason Nissan just seemed to carry the basic design over. Back in those days structural strength did not seem to be a priority like it is now, for safety and noise minimisation reasons too.
