About

I had spotted this Z sitting in a yard outside Three Rivers (MI) many years ago. I finally caught the guy at home, and he said he was "restoring" it for his daughter. I told him if he ever wanted to sell it give me a call.
After a few years, I forgot about it. In 2003, I stopped by one day when I saw him in the yard. "Yeah I'd been meanin' to call you, but I lost the number, would 'ya give me $300 for it? I'll take payments if you don't have all the cash". Needless to say I jumped on it! I drove it home (with minimal brakes and no exhaust) a few days later. Considering the rust in the trunk, and the mold growing in the rear cargo area, it actually ran pretty good. The cruise worked and the clutch was quite good. I cleaned it up and advertised it for $850 and it became the first car I sold to "Datsun Bob" in Portage. I heard he painted it white w/red stripes added a wing and sold it to a kid that worked at Uncle Ed's Oil shop.
