  1. A friend and I were recently reminiscing about the old days and he said for him its only the series 1 240Z like the one he had many years ago, if he was in a position to get one. Then we talked colours and he said. "It'd have to Flamingo Red like my old one" I said there was no such colour and his would have been 905 Monte Carlo red. Today he sent me this which clearly says 905 Flamingo red as he is insistent that is/was the colour. it's hard to say if it is the same as MonteCarlo red, but i'd say it isn't. So, was 905 red in Australia for the Z Monte Carlo or Flamingo?
  2. I recently missed out on a rust free Z for $55k. I doubt an opportunity like that will present itself again
  3. referring to "Fairlady Roadster to 280ZX-The Z-Car Story" by Brian Long, The S130 series Fairlady range boasted no fewer than 10 models. 2 litre Z-L, Z-T & Z in both 2 seater and 2+2 and 2.8 litre 280Z-L & 280Z-T
  4. no idea of how many 2 seaters are in Aus.
  5. My former car up for sale again. Sportclassic sold to someone in Qld a few years ago from what I was told. Now back at Sportclassic. If it was converted back to a road car I'd buy it. http://www.my105.com/22478
  6. even a warmed up N/A L28 goes well. When I rebuilt the L28 in mine 65mm throttle body, coil packs,EMS ECU, Crow Cam, port and polish, extractors and 2.5" system produced 185kw (250bhp), super reliable, never missed a beat, daily driver for 5 years at 16 litres/100km....Lol
  7. the fact it reads Nissan Motor Co (Australia) and as others have said the 2 seater was never imported here. regardless, if the car is or has been registered here, shouldn't have a problem for a 40 year old car. mine din't have any compliance plates
  8. cursing i never knew about this. Love the 2 seater. i had one years ago! Great car. compliance plate is obviously from a local car
  9. problem is there are many people that have some kind of business or another but have no business sense or skill and really shouldn't be in business. As for cheap arse car owners. Unfortunately, most of us don't have unlimited funds to just buy everything and anything we need, so you try and find the cheapest or alternative way to do things. Often that involves asking questions and wasting peoples time..........that's life. But I do have a fond memory of Stewart Wilkins back when he had SSS at Girraween. If you've ever met him, he is a man of few words, not the chatty type. I'd only go there on
  10. My only concern would be the locking. How does the magnetic lock work or does it. That's why i'd want to see one in the flesh. I'd get nervous buying stuff like this on ebay.
  11. i agree that rarity makes things special, but give me a quality reproduction any day. The old wheels are so rare, so expensive, usually damaged and probably not road legal i.e magnesium competition wheels. Most of us even if we could find a set would not be able to afford them. Enkei make some classic 70's 80's style wheels that have the benefit of improved materials, design and manufacturing
  12. I had a LJ Torana XU-1which I sold to a bloke back in the early 90's.He found me on facebook recently and has still got the car. The car had the original 13x6 Sprintmaster wheels. Back in 1973 the XU-1 race cars ran 13x8 & 13x9 magnesium sprintmasters. I always wanted a set but they were extremely rare as they were made in small numbers for racing only. This bloke also wanted them and so he went about getting some 13x9 made in Thailand. He hasn't said how much they cost or how many he is getting made, but he has a pair. He didn't get the 13x8 made. They are made by a proper wheel manufactu
  13. i'm in the camp that wants a car that's pretty much done or 90% there. I don't want a full resto job because I know how long it will take and know it will be a money pit and that i'll probably never get it done. I don't have the skill or patience to tackle rust repairs, but mechanical stuff like suspension and brakes I'll have a go at and things like interior, some electrical etc etc. Engine builds and gearbox and diffs I'd leave to the experts. My friends are always at me........"just get one" not realising that I'd need $50-60k. (there are 2 longtermers on carsales that i'd go for if I had t
