Wow, I love that car. The old Z cars are just timeless designs. I'd love to have one myself. Very nice ride you have there.

That's a really nice looking Z, I love the old 240Z's and 260Z's.

About

I sold my prized 1990 300zx in order to buy this car. I had come to the realization that the ZX was just too heavy (and an automatic) for me to have much more fun with it on track without dropping an assload of money into it. So the opportunity came to purchase this car from Alan Chapman from the Triangle Z Club... and the timing worked out just perfect.

Unfortunately, I no longer own this car :( In order to save it from completely rusting away into the earth (ok, maybe I'm exagerating a little) I sold it to a good friend of mine who has some big plans for it. Right now it's stripped down to it's shell and is housed in a climate controlled garage awaiting a full organ transplant and LOTS of cosmetic surgery. I'll update photos whenever he gets started on it.
