Anybody into Datsuns?

Specifically the 280Z...



...It needs new fenders and paint but that's not a problem, just need to choose between the OEM silver or black. It doesn't want to idle but I'm thinking there's a vacuum leak causing that.

Hope to have it fixed up by this summer to replace my Cavy

leave it. I like the original patina.

Put some nice wheels on it, give it some stance and enjoy the hell out of it

Love these cars

Brothers got a 72 510 4 door he just put a SOHC 240 motor in. Still needs a lot of work, but a cool car none the less.

I came hoping for a 510 love those things. The older Z's can be nice though. Drop an ls in it.

Looks great!!! But for the love of everything righteous and holy in the world, PLEASE get rid of those battering rams and replace them with the slim bumpers!!!

I was actually looking at aftermarket fronts last night but the more I read, the more I'm concerned with catastrophic damage if I take a decent shot front or rear without them.

Thinking of doing something like this though...



...and just shave the rear bumper holes...

Theres 2 Datsuns in my neighborhood not sure if 240, or 260. The one is a really nice baby blue, other one kind of run down never moves black. Nice older cars and tons of performance potential

Thought it was about time to update this. Ordered all new brake parts and a complete seal kit so it should be back on four wheels by next week. Seafoam cured my missing cylinder so I actually got to take it around the neighborhood before I put it up on stands

Nice pickup! I love my 78 to death... Never seen it run tho. It just sits in my garage with the ls1 and t56 tucked inside.

It moves a little when I ninja-hump it.

Imma finish it in secret one day and drive it back to Canadia. I'll leave Sweetness in its spot. It's a fair trade... I swear.

Cool car. I like older Z cars. The new ones look like @!#$, but the old ones were cool.
