  1. Hey guys, after Datsun 260z front bumper brackets, or a point in the direction where to buy them, cheers
  2. Hey man, sorry for the late reply haven’t logged in for a bit, just spent a full day on the 260 and it’s running driving and looking like a car again, still a long way to go tho, trying to chase up a wiring harness, mines had a few different owners and all have had a go at re wiring. Got a push button start atm with no way to shut off the engine and no headlights indicators or break lights
  3. https://www.youtube.com/user/MysticalDonkey no Z vids yet but have been filming every second since picking up the car, gonna get a few more videos together so we’re always ahead, subscribe to see a pretty complete Z build, also if you like old Ae86s S13s 180s and guys with more dreams than skills!!
  4. Hey guys, fixing up at Datsun 260z 2+2 would be great to have some Adelaide Z mates!!
  5. Hey dude, If you’re near Modbury I highly recomend auto masters at Modbury triangle, haven’t taken the Datsun there yet but will when it’s on the road, they fixed up my dads Charger and I always take my 180 there, really nice guys and they know their stuff.
  6. Hey guys, thought I’d throw up some pictures and the story of how I came to start building this 260. This car belonged to my Uncle, he bought it In 2007, after having it for a few years he decided to sell it, he drove to hospital with a for sale sign in the window and somebody at the hospital decided they wanted it. My uncle woke up from an operation with no keys and some money, all sweet. A few months later my uncle gets a call from an impound yard, “ if you don’t come Collect your car, it will be crushed” my uncle calls the guy who bought the car let’s him know he hasn’t changed the car into his name and where he can pick it up, the guy says he’s done with it and he’s not going to pick it up because it’s wrecked!. My uncle calls up the impound yard, asks some questions and decides to go pick up the “wreck” the car had been broken into had the tyres slashed but was definitely salvageable. A few years later my uncle passed away and left the 260 to my dad ( along with some other cars). My other uncle comes up from Melbourne, spots the Z and tells my dad how he had tried to buy it, Dad deciding we had to many other cars to deal with at this point says he can have it. a few years later My uncles had enough of the Z ( he had dreams of turning it into a rally car) the Z is sold to a family friend who drives it around and fixes it up a bit before moving to Darwin, and selling the Z. a few more years go by and we’ve lost track of it, until my sister strikes up a conversation with my dad, “ if you had the chance would you get it back?” After some umms and ahhs dad says yes and he regrets letting it go after both his brothers had had a hand it building it up. 2 days later my sister pulls up in the Z gives dad the keys and tells him not to let it go again. There’s still a few more stories about this car but I’ll leave it at that for my first post, sorry about the long read, I hope you enjoyed the story of the boomerang Dato!!
