  1. It will be very interesting to see and I’m sure it will generate some discussion. For the sake of the investors who lost money I hope all the cars sell for a premium. I won’t be surprised if the 260z sells for well upward of $80k. Jeff
  2. Thanks Ryan All of the photos and more detail are in the build thread. Didn't want to make the video too long. Keep peoples attention. Jeff
  3. Not that I was going to attend but that’s disappointing. I always look forward to the photos. Jeff
  4. This is an interesting video from quite a few perspectives. Very Japanese in its style and content. Some nice close ups of the L28 TC24 B1Z cam gear drive train and a nice car or two. Worth watching. Jeff
  5. I used pinchweld from Bunnings across the rear bulkhead. And (I think) 5mm plastic rivets from one of the online auto supply companies. You could get 50 rivets for the same price as getting 10 at repco. Jeff
  6. Happy new year to you. Locky that is a testimony to your craftsmanship. Thurley beautiful and I'm sure the attention to detail will be just as good if not better as the first impressions the photographs provide when closely inspected. Only negative may be that its now too nice and valuable to drive. Jeff
  7. Hope everyone has had a great Christmas and are heading to a happy new year. Our son and his partner gave me a great Christmas present. Max arranged a local artist to draw the Z including an ode to my old mate Rocky (RIP). I will admit to having a tear in my eye. I also made a short video of the build from start to finish (6 years). Been out and about driving as much as I can and thoroughly enjoying the experience of driving the car and the reactions I get from people. Jeff
  8. Get new ones, You can get exactly what you have brand new for about $600, or you could probably spend half that and a heap of time and still end up with something that's old been rusty and corroded and has a short life expectancy. Jeff
  9. Les plugs the hole with a Welch Plug. Jeff
  10. This sold for a tad over 39k. Interest seemed low until the late stages. Went for less than I thought it was going to but you never know with modified cars like this. Jeff
  11. I received this email from a neighbour who is a old car man. if you are interested in completing the survey the link is below. As they say the more information the better when lobbying governments. Jeff FIVA Socio Economic Survey – Update As of the 5th October, FIVA has advised that they had received 1691 completed surveys from Australia. This is quite a good result and is statistically significant. However, I have asked the Peak Historic Vehicle Organisations to once again go out to the member clubs to ask that we try and get more completed surveys from those clubs/members
  12. That should pull the skin off the custard Jeff
  13. I have been enjoying driving the Z around over the past few weeks. I changed the oil again on Friday evening before the weekend driving. That was the second oil change since the engine was installed in the car and after about 250km of running. Next change will have a few more kilometers on it. It was getting bit dark after the last change but with a few kilometers on it now its still nice a clean. We bumped into two other 240z owners on the weekend when we were out for a coffee run and some shopping. It was good to have a chat with them and talk Z cars. I had a call from Les Collins
