  1. Hi All, i hope you are keep well,, safe and trying to stay positive in these uncertain times, Here is a link to the the video from Mick Reynolds from MTR images who the ZCCQ commissioned to take videos and still photographs for the Festival of Z and Challenge Bathurst. Group Z As the CB organisers had other photographer taking stills of all of the Regularity runs, Mick as restricted as to the on track competition photographs but he has captured the event really well, please Enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsMzlHmmOg4&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0g3OPsYmdtHrtTjrDZuEoiu_d4YNl8mlHp40GkTlQpO-l7uURu0pUiBxM
  2. thats one of my other 240Zs and all those details are correct. I also own #183 and #521(my race car)
  3. Thanks Gav, of the 7 are they all in oz and manual or auto RHD ? i know yours is a auto, mines a manual Yes i am tempted to keep it 903 as the original engine is gone, its currently got a l26 (less the e88 head) and the gear box is toast, (one good thing most of the underside got an gear box oil bath before it was taken off the road) Yes i couldn't believe the #888 when i bought it, maybe a Chinese buyer or Roland or Jessica Dane (id rather Jessica ) might want to buy the Z. I bought the car just before the price of Z's went through the roof, as a possible 1/2 or 1/4's cuts for me and the race guys i hang with after possible accidents, (this was 10 + years ago) but the #888 had me wanting to keep whole, i'm so glad i did. Any further info of the Len Brennan's 240Z with the same colour combo? (i was looking at your other posts on the forum today ) by the look of it, I've got the same wheels as his car but i highly doubt he would have forgotten the #888 so i don't even consider my car might be the same, but would like to hear of any updates about his Z
  4. Found another 904 Kilimanjaro White with Blue interior. Update on #888, after all the rain we have had, i uncovered #888 this morning to give her some fresh air, and noticed that the roof liner, that i had thought had been painter blue was in fact a factory blue liner, along with the A pillar vinyls and sun visors, then looking under the plastic covers over the rear strut tops, i saw that the vinyl was also blue after a bit of scratching around i found that the rest hand been painted black along with all the hard plastics, then i checked the tunnel vinyl and the passenger door card also blue, painted over black, (the driver’s door card has been replaced with a black door card). I miss took this as when the car was painter from white to 903 (or similar blue) (don't get excited Gav it definitely is 904 white not a unicorn 903 blue with blue interior) there was quite a bit of over spray on the interior vinyl and the car was stored in a very dark place and didn't notice it, so my bad. The original seats have been replaced with Sass seats. if anyone hears of a driver side blue door card and or blue seat covers in vgc please let me know as I have a pair of 240Z seats which I can use and recover.
  5. i would be seriously looking at just how well you could possibly bleed the air out of these calipers, from the first photo it looks like it would be an impossibility at the angle the bleed nipple would sit compared to how the caliper angle is , there are to many other options out there which are known to work.
  6. Hi Gav the white one is mine, i got her 2 1/2 years ago, it is HS30-11509 engine is L24 101956, early 72 car, it is in extremely good condition an out of all my cars is the most original and in original condition. it has not been on a wet road or had rain fall on it for over 20 years, got the number plates a week after i bought her that why i was chancing a set of 72 stamped Topys a year ago, i ended up getting a set as i have the original hub caps (they need refurbishing) The Nissan media was a blast every journo wanted to drive her . The red one is owned by a member on the forum i can ask if he wants it known Cheers
  7. Mick Reynolds from MTR images who was there taking photos of the Festival of Z has now uploaded his images to his website https://www.mtrimages.com/f244709590?fbclid=IwAR3-LWXelAqmXOzIrG3S-_h80lNlY5UciGQYVZ8JeRdodDsNuis-H8m-VRw Mick has truly captured the event and the days leading up to it, i highly recommend looking through the galleries as you never knew he was around most of the time and has got some great shots. 10/10
  8. Got to Bathurst yesterday after a surprisingly good run , We left Brisbane at 05.30 and got to Gosford at about 16.00 we were lucky to get through the fires as the Pacific Highway was cut of the day before, I had one trailer tyre blow just out side Coffs and the Spare i had lasted an 1 hour before it also blew, (lesson update your spare if you are doing a long trip) lucky we got 2 replacements in Kempsey and the whole saga only slowed us by an hour. Yesterday had a great drive through the Pennant Hills area only taking about 10 mins from the M1 to the M2 Nice Drive up and over the Blue Mts 13 degrees with low cloud and light rain. Got to Bathurst about 11.30 and unloaded the red car and went into town for a counter meal. Safe Trip for all those heading up over the next few days and please check the road conditions and fire closures ZCCQ Club member turned up later in the day with his newly restored 300ZX Z31 which he had had only driven 200kms around town in Brisbane before driving to Bathurst, he said the car was great and had no problems See you in Bathurst
  9. Unfortunately Pit Straight reverts to a public road as of 5.30 pm so no chance. There is only 42 Bolwells in that shot above . i'm trying to fit 100 Z's in a very small area 50 competition Z's and 50 Festival entrants Z's Entries close tomorrow so please don't miss out on it

  11. Well we have a limited space to be able to do this Friday afternoon photo-shoot, i have got special permission to allow 50 non competition cars (which will have to have a special of display car sticker, gathered and lined up at a certain time ) to be allowed to drive into the inner paddock area (this is a strictly controlled area for the week of CB) at a certain time then through one of the garages into pit lane. this will all be controlled but some of the wonderful Z volunteers Then line up in order, we only have the area from pit lane exit to garage 13 to line up the cars, and with about 300mm to 400mm between each car to fit them in about 110 meters long. So Peter if you miss out well... if your entered into the Festival and you done make the 50 then you will be able to view this awesome line up from the Hell Corner Corporate Suites and even walk down around the cars in pit lane if time allows before the Friday night welcoming party

  14. Hi all here's is another video review from the Nissan Media day https://youtu.be/QAmXRmP-ogY
  15. Thanks for posting ScottyD Yeah thanks she is very original hasn't been on a wet road or had rain fall on she from 19 years I decided to let a few of the guys who's cars weren't going to be used, and we weren't sure if we would a drive around the track, in all the other cars that were there, but fortunately at the lunch break they let us all go out together, the drone shot of us leaving the marshalling area is awesome That's why Paul was in the passenger seat, we were very busy when it all started so it was good to jump out and let some one else have some fun
